Spiders can be a huge problem for some people and even pose a safety hazard. They can squeeze into tight spaces with ease, and are generally hard to get rid of. Most spiders are not dangerous or harmful to humans however, they can be a nuisance when they invade our homes and make it an unsettling environment to be in. Encountering a spider infestation can destroy the level of comfort you attain in your home. Arachnids are most active at night, which means that you can find them in dark corners where they can spin webs and create nests for their eggs.
Choosing the experts at R&D Pest Services is one of the best ways to quickly deal with an infestation. Our friendly professionals are properly equipped with the right tools and skills to correctly identify the type of spiders in your home, evaluate the severity of the problem, provide appropriate solutions and follow up with visits if necessary for pest prevention.
How To Identify
Some of the top indicators that you may have an infestation of spiders in your home are webs covering holes or dark corners, live or dead spiders around the property, egg sacs, molts, unexplained bites, excess flying insects, and more.
California is home to a large number of different species of arachnids. Some of these spiders are venomous and pose a health risk to the elderly, young children, and those with compromised immune systems. It’s not always easy to identify which spiders are venomous and which are not. This is where the professionals at R&D Pest Services step in to help. After over 30 years of dealing with troublesome spider infestations in California’s residential communities, our experts have learned a thing or two about spiders and their behaviors.

Effects Spiders Can Have on Your Property
Spiders are one of the most commonly sighted household pests. Although spiders are seen to be entirely negative in and around our homes, one benefit they provide is eating other bothersome pests such as earwigs, moths, roaches, and more contributing to the alleviation of the spread of disease caused by these insects.
Some downsides to hosting a shelter for these pesky arachnids are that venomous or not, they bite, spider webs have a negative effect on the visual appeal of your home, and if you have an infestation of spiders in your home, it may mean that they have found a reliable source of other insects to feast on.
