When it comes to many pest types, including spiders, proactive pest control is generally the way to go. Rather than waiting for spiders or related insects to populate your home or yard and create issues, you can take steps to prevent these issues ahead of time.
At Logan Extermination, we’re here to help. We provide a variety of pest control solutions for numerous potential pest types on your property, including insects like spiders, ants, crickets, grasshoppers and many others. In addition, we’re running multiple late-summer specials on products like spider spray, spider traps and other forms of proactive treatment. Here’s a primer on proactive versus reactive pest treatment, the benefits of the former, and your options here when it comes to spider control.
Proactive Vs. Reactive
As their names suggest, proactive and reactive pest control refer to the timing with which you take on pest control efforts. Proactive pest control speaks to efforts that are made ahead of time – you take the initiative before any major infestation takes place, generally through identifying the common insects or other pests that might threaten your area, then taking steps to protect against them.
Reactive pest control, on the other hand, involves taking action after a pest infestation or related forms of damage have taken place. While this is sometimes unavoidable, as certain pests won’t show signs of infestation until it’s too late, there are many situations where the need for reactive pest control can be avoided – simply by taking proactive strategies ahead of time, especially if you’ve had issues with a given pest type on your property in the past.
Benefits of Proactive Treatment
Generally speaking, reactive pest control should be done only on a first-time or emergency basis. That is, if you’re already aware of the potential for issues with a certain pest, such as spiders, there’s simply no reason you should wait until they cause an infestation to take action. Proactive treatment helps avoid much of the major damage many pests create, plus keeps humans safe and comfortable in their structures so they aren’t put at-risk by a major infestation.
Options for Proactive Spider Treatment
You have a few good options at your disposal for proactive spider treatment:
- Spider spray: Used both on property perimeters and in specific areas where spiders have been a problem in the past, spider spray is highly effective for both extermination and prevention. We are currently offering a special on spider spray – contact our team for more information.
- Spider: These attract various spider types and remove them from your environment.
- Sealing and prevention themes: In addition to the above, take the time to seal any cracks or gaps in your doors, windows and other entryways to stop spiders from entering your home.
