Treatment

Black Widows

Our black widow treatment starts by applying our insecticide product to any and all spiderwebs. We also utilize a spray to any spiders directly and a unique powder application is applied to any areas they might be like corners, eaves, behind furniture, in storage areas, and more to prevent new spiders from appearing. Residual liquid sprays applied to the outside perimeter of the home are not as effective because of the black widow spider’s web-sitting behavior.

Our pest experts take a tailored approach when treating your property and work to ensure that your concerns are addressed and your home is protected, inside and out. We’re dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and making sure you enjoy your home.
