It is common to have these fears, but we can carry out spider treatments to help you with this problem. Weather its spraying a loft space, conservatory or a workshop to name but a few we can help to make your environment less of a worry.

The most obvious sign that you have a spider infestation in your home or office is the occurrence or build-up of spider webs. You should clear away webs regularly using a duster or a hoover, both to prevent spider activity and so you can see when new webs occur. One or two webs don’t necessarily suggest a huge spider infestation, but if you see lots of webs, then you should consider contacting us if you need help.
Due to the chemicals we use, we can’t treat green garden areas, trees and bushes as the chemical would affect all wildlife if this is your issue then we will need to give you further advice but we must ensure all treatments are delivered following all laws and legislation. If you would like a spider treatment, then give us a call and we can arrange an appointment.
