The Alabama summer’s in full swing, and if you don’t have a reliable pest control service locked in for the season, you’re at risk of ants and spiders turning your home into their private sanctuary. Perhaps they’ve already moved in.
Fear not. After 10 years in business serving our commercial and residential neighbors in Athens, Huntsville, and Madison, we know a thing or two about pest control products. Namely, the ones that work.
In fact, at Scout Pest Control, our spider control and ant sprays are so effective that we usually need to treat your yard and home only once per season. And if you do have any problems between treatments, we’ll be straight out to help at no extra charge.
So this is our advice: Put the vinegar spray away. And read on to find out which professional pest control products get rid of spiders and ants for the whole summer.
What Do Professionals Use to Spray for Spiders and Ants?
Professional pest control companies have an arsenal of products for combatting spider and ant infestations.
For spiders, they may use liquid insecticides. These can be applied to create a barrier around your home and sprayed directly at webs and hiding spots. Dust insecticides work well too; they cling to spiders and can even reach their nests.
If ants are the problem, a pest control service can scatter granular insecticides outdoors to target the ant mounds. Ant baits, meanwhile, will lure the ants to carry poison back to their colonies, eradicating the entire population. Lastly, insect growth regulators (IGRs), can be applied as liquids, granules, or aerosols to disrupt the ants’ reproductive cycles.
How to Get Rid of Spiders in North Alabama
Keeping spiders away from your property, pets, and kids is notoriously challenging — they can be extremely persistent. And in our part of the country, some of those eight-legged intruders have a nasty bite, so doing nothing is not an option.
At Scout Pest Control, we’ve developed a battle-tested method that combines the best spider control products with a few practical steps.
Here’s how we create a spider-free environment for our customers in Limestone and Madison Counties.
We Sweep Away Their Hideouts
During each visit, we meticulously sweep away spider webbing from eaves and corners. By doing so, we not only eliminate their food source but also disrupt their cozy nesting areas.
We Extend Your Protective Barrier
We go the extra mile by applying our exterior spray to reach two to three feet high on the outside of your property and three to five feet out from your home’s perimeter. This broad coverage targets the very spots where spiders tend to nest and hide. It creates a formidable barrier, making it more difficult for spiders to infiltrate indoors.
We Use Microencapsulated Magic
One of our secret weapons is microencapsulated products. These powerful formulations contain microscopic bubbles that cling to insects, including spiders, when they come into contact with them. As these bubbles burst, they deliver a knockout blow to the pests, even if they’ve ventured away from the treated area.
We Sprinkle Dust for Spider Control
Dust products play a crucial role in our services, particularly when it comes to spiders. These special formulations have an affinity for spiders’ small hairs, called cilia, and cling to them. This strategic use of dust helps in controlling spider populations
Are There Natural Pest Control Products for Spiders and Ants?
Yes. And green pest control for ants and spiders is a service we also provide.
We use natural compounds like diatomaceous earth, boric acid, silica dust, and natural pyrethrins. Our treatments also include essential oils such as thyme, rosemary, peppermint, and geraniol. These natural ingredients work together to effectively eliminate and prevent unwanted pests from invading your space.
With our eco-friendlier approach, you can trust that you’re protecting your home with nature’s solutions.
