Common Spiders We Eliminate for You
The most common spiders we eliminate for customers just like you are:
Black Widow Spiders
The black widow spiders are identified by their color and the hourglass-shaped mark on their abdomen. These spiders may be small but their venomous bite can pack a punch. According to WebMD, the effect of the venom can vary from person to person causing severe pain, burning, swelling and redness around the bite. Nausea, vomiting, and difficulty breathing are also potential symptoms. WebMD also recommends children and older adults immediately seek medical attention as their bites can be fatal to them. You can learn more about black widow bites on WebMD.com.
These are aggressive house spiders which are 11 to 15 mm long and are brown in color. Females have larger abdomens as compared to male. Males have swollen appendages which are used for reproduction. They feed on insects and other spiders. They inhabit dark humid areas that are not commonly used.
Named after their crablike appearance and movements. They have two large and strong front legs that are used to capture their prey. Their bite is venomous, but it is not medically threatening to the human body. Crab spider eggs are produced a week after the crab spiders mate and hatching time depends on environmental conditions.
They are neither aggressive nor are they medically important. They are found outdoors and in gardens where they weave delicate orb-shaped webs. They produce strong webs which they use to capture their prey.
One of the most common spiders found in the home, the daddy longlegs is a member of the cellar spider family and also referred to as a harvestman spider. They do not pose a poisonous threat to humans.
They do an awesome job. I didn’t realize my service ended until I started seeing the spider webs surrounding my back porch. It’s pretty nasty but it’s what happens when you live by the water. Needless to say, I restarted my service! I highly recommend them!

Signs of A Spider Infestation
There are both obvious and less obvious signs you are experiencing a spider infestation in your home. Common signs of an active infestation or the potential of a spider problem include:
- Seeing an increase of spiders in or around your home
- An increase in spiderwebs around the corners of your walls, near windows or doorways, or behind bookshelves and other furniture
- Spotting spider egg sacks. The sacks are usually white in color, wrapped in the silk webbing, and are generally attached to a solid surface like behind a bookshelf or in cabinets.
Spider Control Treatments
While spiders are an important part of our ecosystem by providing organic bug control, they can still cause pest problems within your home. Additionally, some species can also cause health risks like the black widow. At All N One Pest Eliminators, our spider control treatment consists of both chemical treatments and natural control options.
Aerosol concentrate sprays and insecticide “dust” are both common and effective treatments for larger infestations. The odorless dust is mixed with water and then applied in and around the infestation area. The dust treatment provides a waterproof solution which is sprayed into cracks and voids spiders and other pests can use to gain entry to your home. The treatment is highly effective, fast acting and can provide protection for a significant period.
Natural Control and Prevention
While chemical treatments are an effective way to control and eliminate large spider infestations, we believe ecofriendly organic and natural control and prevention options should be used when available. Modifying the environment where the spiders and other pest live can be an effective preventative option including:
Reducing the amount of artificial light outside
Many bugs are attracted to artificial light sources. The bugs that are drawn to the light provide an excellent source of food for spiders. Using motion detection light that only operate when needed is a great option to reduce artificial outdoor light.
Sealing Cracks and Gaps
Spiders and other pests can enter your home through the tiniest cracks and gaps around doorways, windows, or imperfections around the foundation. New seals, screens, and fillers can be used to seal these entry points.
Keep roof overhangs and base of your house clean
Debris, cobwebs, weeds and dirt around the base of you home and roof overhangs provide insects a perfect habitat to live. A shop-vac can be an effective too for reaching hard to reach areas when cleaning.
Move wood piles away from home
Piles of wood, like supplies of firewood, are notorious homes for spiders like black widows. While treatments around the wood can help minimize spider activity, it is a good practice to keep the wood stored away from your home. It is also a good practice to use gloves when gathering wood and inspecting it for spiders before bringing into the house.
