Spider Control

Treatment for Spiders

Spider Control Cairns

So, you should know that spiders are not like most insets.

For example, they don’t habitually clean their mouth with their feet and legs.

They also keep their bodies well above the surfaces since they have very long legs.

As a result, there is little chance of transferring pesticides from their bodies into their mouth and from surface contact.

In simple terms, they are a little difficult to eliminate without help. So, do you need help eliminating these insects from your home?

Pro Pest Control Cairns offers professional spider treatment and removal for homes and businesses.

Our technicians are trained and licensed to treat them with safe methods. We also adhere to a strict code of conduct to guarantee your safety.

How we treat


Spiders are frightening for the most part, and their webs are a pain to deal with. Interestingly, their web often gives them out. Our spider inspection helps us trace and determine spider activities. This includes identifying the species, attractants, and entry areas. To do this, we will examine hidden and visible parts of your home, including walls, floorboards, ceilings, and outside your property.


After determining the conditions contributing to spider infestation and hot areas, we will proceed to formulate a treatment plan. Our treatment covers the interior, exterior, and underside of a building. In other words, we will sweep through the entire structure to remove them and eggs.

Our technicians will check damp and dark places for them. We will also remove spider egg sacs, webs, and extend the treatment to the foundation, around the decks, etc. At Pro Pest Control Cairns, we use herbal and residual insecticides to kill them. We also use insect traps, liquid chemicals, and glue boards to trap and kill spinners. We will spray light fixtures, accessible overhangs, eaves around the doors and windows, fence lines, patios, walkways, etc.


They are not entirely bad in the home. For example, they help to keep the pest population under control since they are natural predators. However, too many or the presence of deadly spiders is harmful. Regular vacuuming, general cleanliness, and a few other tips will help reduce spider population and ensure they don’t spiral out of control.


We use insecticide concentrates and aerosols to kill them. The treatments are available in different forms to ensure convenient use in various places. We also use modern pesticides that can make adult spiders go nuts. Other treatments we use include insecticide dust, pyrethrin aerosols, etc.

Why are they considered pests?

Spiders prey on smaller ones and insects. As a result, they are natural predators for controlling similar pests. If you start noticing them around your home, it is a sign that there are other bugs and pests within your apartment.

A female spider can lay up to 3000 eggs in a lifetime, and contrary to popular beliefs, most of them are not harmful. Regardless, species like the Black Widow or Brown Recluse will inflict severe harm that causes medical complications.

All spiders bite. However, non-poisonous spiders will only leave welt-sized abrasions on your skin. In extreme cases, irritation and pain from the bite can lead to a medical emergency if you don’t treat it. All of these aside, webs reduce the aesthetics of any room.

  • Where are spiders commonly found?

They prefer dark places in the attics and basement. Some prefer moisture, while others will seek out dry areas in a home.

Most spider species are not poisonous, and some have fangs that can’t penetrate the human skin. However, a few are highly poisonous even to humans.

  • What is the environmental impact of spider pest control services?

These services use chemicals. It can negatively impact the surroundings if used excessively. To limit future infestations, pest control technicians recommend sealing cracks and crevices they use to enter homes. They also advise clearing clutter and debris around the exterior of homes since this attracts them. Employing these preventative measures can reduce the need for repeated chemical treatments.
