Did You Know Mosquito Treatments Can Also Kill Spiders In TN?

Previous Post | Next Post


Mosquitoes can make spending time outdoors in the summer months unbearable. This causes many homeowners to have their properties treated for mosquitoes to reduce the populations and make their time spent outdoors more enjoyable; but what most homeowners don’t realize is that by treating for mosquitoes they are also helping to reduce the number of spiders that are on their property. Spiders can become a real nuisance in Nashville in the fall when they start to move from the outdoors to the inside of homes. By reducing their population in the summer you will have a less likely chance of your home becoming infested with spiders in the fall.

Spiders in Tennessee (including house spiders, brown recluse and black widow spiders) can be difficult pests to control with traditional exterior pest control treatments since their webs and areas that they hang out in are often up very high. This is why the misting services that work so well for mosquitoes also work so well for spiders, the mist will reach those high up hard to reach areas of your yard. Misting services will protect your home from becoming infested with nuisance spiders like common house spiders and from the more dangerous brown recluse and black widow spiders. Misting services for mosquito prevention and spider control generally involves a Nashville exterminator providing you with an initial application of a safe pesticide around your homes’ foundation, window sills, door openings and garbage cans. This is then usually followed up by a second walk around your home while misting your landscape, shrubs, tree canopies and bushes that are located close to the exterior of your house.

In addition to calling a Nashville pest control company for home pest control and misting services to prevent spiders from entering your home there are things that you can do as well to help deter spiders from entering. Preventing spiders and other pests from entering your Nashville home involves making sure all the areas that they can easily access are fixed or sealed and that you are not providing them with an easy food or water source.

  • Trim all trees and bushes away from the exterior of your home so that landscaping doesn’t provide a bridge to your home.

  • Seal cracks, even very small ones in your homes’ foundation or elsewhere on the exterior.

  • Caulk gaps that are around exterior doors and windows and replace torn screens.

  • Eliminate potential food sources for insects by keeping food off of your counter, in sealed containers or in the refrigerator. Though spiders don’t enjoy crumbs like ants and other pests, they do like the insects that food does attract.

  • Fix any leak in pipes or appliances, as moisture will attract insects, which in turn draw spiders.
