In otherwise beautiful waterside areas like Wilmington, there are small, ugly problems that come with the territory — spiders. Although there are nearly twenty species of spider in North Carolina, the good news is that only two of them — the black widow and the brown recluse — are poisonous. That’s hardly any consolation, though, as these creepy-crawlies give just about everybody the heebie-jeebies. At Mosquito Squad of Wilmington, we offer spider control with immediate results that will rid you of your arachnid anxiety on your own property. Our traditional barrier treatment formula that we use for mosquitoes works on many other biting bugs, including fleas, ticks, and yes — spiders.
Many homeowners call us with spider problems so bad their webs are practically all over the exterior of their houses, not to mention docks. We know how anxiety-inducing this can be for just about anyone, so we’re very thorough about our spider control methods. We spray the entire exterior of your home with our barrier treatment solution from the ground all the way up to the eves. Of course, spiders are quite messy creatures that come with a lot of “baggage” in the way of their webs, so once they are knocked down, Mosquito Squad cleans up the webby mess left behind as well.
Our specially-formulated barrier spray is designed to eliminate spiders on contact, and because it adheres to wherever it is applied, any new spiders or biting bugs that come into contact with it will also be eliminated. This time-released solution is designed to be up to 90% effective for three straight weeks before needing reapplication. So that you don’t need to worry about scheduling another treatment, we offer seasonal plans for our spider and all other pest control services. Thankfully, our barrier treatment formula eliminates most biting bugs without any additional additives, so when you’re concerned about eliminating one kind, you’re knocking down others as well.
Most people know that spiders are an especially bad problem around their docks and boats but don’t stop to think about why that is. The answer is simple — it’s where the food is! A spider’s diet consists mostly of insects. Mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and other bugs love to breed and hang out on or around the water. While it’s a convenient situation for a spider, it’s anything but pleasant for people who just want to enjoy their boat, pontoon, jet ski, or other water-based recreation.
For your docks, boats, and other primarily aquatic areas, we use our all-natural barrier treatment formula. Our all-natural formula is based on essential oils and has a slight minty aroma that wears off to the human nose after a couple hours, but is still repulsive to spiders and other bugs. Like our traditional formula, it is also time-released, but we recommend re-applying it every two weeks instead of three. Depending on your property’s needs, we can customize a seasonal spider control plan for you that combines both traditional and natural formulas.
As with all of our products and services, Mosquito Squad’s Wilmington spider control is guaranteed to be between 80-90% effective in elimination. If you’re not 100% satisfied, we’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back — no questions asked.
