Professional Spider Control For Your Home

When the weather gets warmer, you can usually expect to see a tiny invader making an appearance in, and around, your home; spiders. Whether you are dealing with house spiders, wolf spiders, cellar spiders, black widow spiders or any other species of spider, the health and safety hazards associated with these little pests can put your loved ones at risk. This is why it is important to have a licensed spider exterminator to help you get rid of spiders inside your home.

At Orkin Canada, our spider control specialists are properly equipped to deal with any spider issue. We provide professional spider control and treatments from coast to coast – so whether you live in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Gatineau, St. John’s or any other Canadian city or town, you can rest easy knowing that Orkin Canada is there to help.

How Orkin Canada Manages Your Spider Problem


The first step to controlling spiders in your home is to correctly identify what the exact species is. Identification is necessary because different spider species have different habitats and behaviours. Knowing what type of spider has invaded your home, will provide your Orkin Pro with a better understanding of what treatment options are going to be effective against the spiders in your home.

Once your Orkin Pro identifies the spider/spiders in question, an inspection will be conducted to determine what factors are attracting spiders to your property. These can include:

  • Food source (other insects that is attracting them)
  • Harbourage sites – clutter, overgrown vegetation
  • Potential entry points that are allowing them to get into your home.

Professional Spider Control Treatment Options For Your Home

Habitat Modification

The first treatment solution used by your Orkin Pro is habitat modification to eliminate food sources, harbourage sites & exclusion to prevent them from entering indoors. This may involve repairing or replacing damaged window/door screens, sealing and screening any cracks, crevices or openings on your property and making recommendations to exclude pests from your property.


In some areas, an environmentally-friendly mixture of soapy water and essential oils may be used. This is used to clean and effectively prevent any harbourage areas in your home. The essential oils within the mixture provide an effective and natural repellent to keep spider infestations at bay. Your Orkin Pro may also vacuum any spider webs in high activity areas to remove any egg sacs or live spiders.

Exterior Perimeter Treatments

Orkin Canada’s contact and residual treatments effectively take care of your spider issue. Your Orkin Canada technician will treat areas where spiders might be harbouring. This treatment option is sometimes used as a barrier treatment because the residual properties ensure long-term protection against spiders and prevents them from going indoors.

Spot and Void Treatments

Spot treatments are a great way to control spider populations in exposed localized areas, while void treatments are great way to control larger spider populations in hard to reach areas, such as small cracks or crevices or in wall voids Using a commercial grade formulation, your Orkin Canada technician will apply spot treatments in key areas where there is a high level of spider activity. Depending upon the size of the infestation, a combination of different treatment options may be used to control the spider population.


Once your Orkin Canada technician has controlled the spider population using the appropriate treatment/treatments, they will monitor the effectiveness and make adjustments as required. Your Orkin Canada technician will also educate and provide recommendations on how to prevent a future spider infestation.

Common Spider Harbourage Areas

Because spiders are solitary pests, they tend to harbour in quiet dark corner spaces. Your Orkin Canada technician will target common areas in and around your residential property (houses/apartments/condos, cottages, trailers) where spiders may be most active. These areas can include:

  • Deck areas
  • Fences
  • Expansion joints
  • Foundation of your home
  • Doors & windows
  • Attic spaces
  • Garage
  • Crawl space
  • Storage rooms, closets, corners
  • Sheds
