Keep the Crawlers Away; Call Today!

Spider crawling on home floorSpiders are one of the most diverse and numerous types of animals on the planet. There are thousands of different species of spiders, and they can range in size from as small as the tip of a pin to as large as 11 inches in length (in the case of the Goliath Bird Eating Spider). They are found down on the ground, up in trees, in bushes and plants, hidden away in corners, and even in underground burrows in some cases. Naturally, it isn’t at all uncommon to find spiders in your house, and the team at Pestex Inc. is here to help you when you do.

Common Spiders Found in the Boston Area

Spiders vary almost as much, if not even more than we do as humans! Some spiders are small, while others are large. Some live in large colonies and nests while others tend to be more solitary and live alone. Some eat plants while others feast on other insects and even some small animals. However, all spiders have a few common characteristics: they have eight legs, they spin webs, and they hunt their prey with venomous fangs designed to paralyze or kill.

While there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of different species of spiders in the world, there are a select few that are common found in houses and on properties throughout the Boston area. Whatever type of spiders you might have around your home, Pestex Inc. is trained to eliminate them quickly and effectively.

Here are a few types of spiders found in homes throughout the state of Massachusetts:

  • Cellar spiders: Also known as the “daddy long-legs” colloquially, these spiders are not actually spiders at all. Instead, they are a different type of arachnid known as harvestmen that don’t produce silk webs and have a distinctly different body shape.
  • House spider: Getting their name from their propensity to show up in houses, these tiny spiders have tan and brown striped legs. They love to live in attics, basements, or even on ceilings, where they spin small, fluffy webs to try and catch gnats and flies.
  • Wolf spiders: Wolf spiders are renowned hunters, but not of humans. They are intimidating because of their larger size and general hairiness, but these spiders tend to avoid any contact with humans as much as possible and will only bite if provoked. They tend to be found around windows and doors, in houseplants, and in outdoor gardens.
  • Black widow: Perhaps the most renowned “dangerous” spider species (and also the only one native to the Boston area), the black widow is easily recognized by the distinct red “hourglass” mark on its abdomen.

We Target Spider Nests, Wherever They Hide

If you are frequently finding spiders in your home, there is a good chance that a spider may have built a nest somewhere that you aren’t aware of. Spiders tend to do this in dark corners, inside walls, and in attics or basements, where they tend to not be disturbed. At Pestex Inc., we understand spider behavior, and we know where and how to locate a spider nest for removal. Using our state-of-the-art tools and products, we carefully eliminate your spider problem entirely, returning your home to a peaceful and spider-free dwelling. We can also help you target and eliminate spider hiding places around your home and property, reducing the chances of spiders returning. Plus, with our ongoing treatment and protection plans, we can actively keep spiders away and give you ongoing peace of mind for the future!
