For over 50 years, Rentokil has been supplying humane and effective spider control solutions designed to protect commercial and residential properties from all species of pest spiders.

Spider inspection and monitoring

Rentokil will install insect monitor units designed to trap spiders but not attract them. Monitor units will be strategically positioned in areas where spiders are likely to be foraging, sheltering and seeking mates.

Spider proofing and site recommendations

Rentokil technicians can advise on spider proofing measures and adjustments made to areas where spiders commonly seek shelter to deter spiders from the premises. This may include filling in gaps around pipework, in walls, and under doors. 

Spider insecticidal sprays and dust

Effective on a wide range of interior and exterior surfaces as well as in cracks and crevices, residual treatment such as spider insecticidal sprays and dust compromise the spider’s nervous system or exoskeleton. They typically work within 24 hours, offering quick means of controlling spiders. Suitable for long-term solutions under cabinets and along basement walls, this versatile product exterminates spiders and other pest insects such as bed bugs, cockroaches, fleas and ants.

Spider insecticidal misting

Spider insecticidal misting via a ultra low volume (ULV) cold fogger is an efficient and effective method of spider  control suitable for larger premises such as warehouses, sheds and boat docks.. The insecticide is dispersed widely tackling spaces where spiders breed.

How much does spider control cost?

Your spider control costs will ultimately reflect the time and effort it will take to minimise numbers from your home or business. Rentokil will need to visit your property to inspect for spider activity. Following this, the below factors will determine the most suitable spider treatment and its associated costs.

Spider species

Identifying the type and size of spider infestation plays a key role in the solutions your Rentokil technician will recommend.

Size of premises

The square footage of your property and premises will have a direct impact on the type of spider treatment used and the number of follow-up treatments required.

Severity of spider infestation

If many spiders are present, you may require more extensive treatment, including revisits. This will have an impact on spider treatment cost.
