I recently stumbled across an article which quoted a Gloucestershire University’s Professor, one Adam Hart, who stated:
“By eating flies and other insects, spiders are not only providing us with a pest control service, but are also very important in our ecosystems because they often feed themselves on the most common species, preventing a few species from becoming dominant.”
As a pest control guy, I do agree with the above statement. However, spiders themselves can also become a serious pest control problem.
So what do you do when spiders themselves are indeed the pest?
Spiders are a free pest control service, except for those cases when the spider is the pest. However, they don’t do a very good job of leaving the home when their pest controlling is done.
Additionally, the messy webs they leave make their services a little less desirable. Plus the big boss spider won’t respond to phone calls when a customer is upset about the spider traps failing to catch all the crickets.
I’d recommend sticking with a solid Bulwark pest control service. But hey, spiders are cheap and FREE pest control, and you get what you pay for.
