Brown Recluse Spiders are venomous and found in almost every home throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky counties. They are light brown in color and the back piece of the adults’ bodies is very distinctively dark.
Applying extensive years of experience combined with employing the latest products, techniques, and methods taught us how to effectively treat for brown recluse spiders. We use different products and methods to control the problem: First, a pesticide dust is utilized to treat the habitat of brown recluse spiders, such as voids in walls, outlets and base boards. The potency lasts up to 8 month and affects the spiders nervous system on contact. Second, a liquid material serves to repel spiders and insects from treated areas. This product’s residual kills on contact for up to 3 months. Third, another liquid product is used for cracks, crevices, and other tight areas inside of the house that brown recluse spiders frequently squeeze through. This procedure maximizes exposure and kills for up to 30 days. Glue boards help monitor the effectiveness of treatment, kill the trapped spiders and let us know which direction they are traveling from. Our residential pest control supervisor experienced many cases in which he found dead brown recluse spiders in areas that have been treated the previous month.
