Spiders are extremely beneficial. They are responsible for keeping the surrounding insect population in check. Most spiders are quite harmless and are rarely exposed to human contact, but there are a few dangerous species. The larger the amount of insect in a given area, the more spiders that are likely to be found in that area.
With spiders such as black widows, brown recluses, and the aggressive house spider, immediate control solutions is necessary if even one is found inside the home or building. The bites from the spiders are so severe that extreme measures must be taken to eliminate the infestation. Most other spiders are generally non-aggressive towards human and do not need the same immediate attention, unless the owner specifically request control of all spiders in the area.
Proper identification is a very necessary first step for proper spider control because different spiders require different control solution methods. Brown recluses, for example, require different tactics and products for control then a common house spider does. Part of an effective spider control treatment is actually to focus on insect control. By controlling the insect population, you control the spider’s food source. With no food to eat, spiders will generally just pack up and leave.
