Pests in BC Interior
Homeowners and businesses in BC Interior may find pests lurking in boxes that have been stored. Silverfish often get into stored boxes and will eat almost anything, so they readily attack the cardboard box as well as the contents. Black widow spiders often make their way into stored boxes to make webs that catch insects they can eat.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I suddenly have silverfish in my house?
Silverfish commonly harbour in areas with ideal conditions indoors. High humidity spaces and readily available food sources attract these pests to your home. Cracks, voids, crevices, and other similar openings are ideal for these pests to get inside your home. It is important to do an exterior inspection of your property and fill any cracks or voids to reduce the possibility of a silverfish infestation.
What will an Orkin Pro do to get rid of black widow spiders?
The species found in the British Columbia area is known as the western black widow spider. Your Orkin Pro will perform a thorough inspection to determine what is attracting western black widow spiders to your property. Once the inspection is completed, they will then implement a customized treatment plan for your property. Your Orkin Pro will also make recommendations to help you prevent a future black widow spider infestation.

Our representative is very informative and quickly goes about his work. I am very pleased with his explanation for placing bait stations where he did and so on. Sometimes it is hot and he carries right on with what he has to do. It is a nasty job.
