Can I Vacuum Spiders Up To Kill Them?

A vacuum seems like the easiest and quickest way to dispose of a pest. What most people do not think about is that vacuums do not grind up or otherwise destroy the things they take in. They just transfer them to an interior compartment. If you suck up a spider, it might just crawl back out later. The same is true for other pests. If you do use a vacuum to suck in a spider, empty it outdoors immediately. Be careful while you do this as the spider could try to escape in the process.

Does Bleach Really Kill Spiders?

Bleach is not just a powerful cleaning agent, it is also a quick way to kill pests. It is not, however, a registered insecticide and should not be used frequently to deal with pest problems as it could have negative side effects for humans and pets. Bleach can also stain and otherwise damage surfaces throughout your home when used in a higher concentration. Keeping all of this in mind, the best solution to remove spiders from your home is to hire a pest control professional. At EcoTech Pest Control Services we work hard to ensure members of our community have access to high-quality and effective treatments for spiders.

Tips To Keep The Spiders In Tampa Away From Your Home

If you are worried about seeing spiders everywhere inside your home and are you looking for some ways to keep these pests out, we recommend starting with some general pest-prevention tips. Here are some home remedies to keep spiders away:

  • Identify holes, cracks, and other damage in your home’s exterior foundation. Seal off these potential entry points with some silicone caulk and a caulking gun.
  • Check the condition of your window/door screens and repair any damage you find.
  • Install door sweeps under all doors that lead out of your home.
  • Keep windows and doors that are not protected with screens closed when they are not in use.
  • Turn off exterior lights around your home after dark. Another option is to invest in insect-resistant (yellow) light bulbs.
  • Reduce the clutter in and around your home.
  • Keep up with your lawn and landscaping and clear a five-foot area around your home.

To take your spider control to the next level, you need professional pest control in Tampa.
