Spider control

Rentokil’s local technicians are experts on New Zealand spider behaviour. They can offer advice on how to spot the early signs of an infestation, to enable quick and effective targeted treatment for your home or business.

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 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 an 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.
