Cellar Spider Infestation

Cellar spider webs can be difficult to control in your home because these long-legged, unusually thin creatures, that you rarely see are constantly busy building those unsightly webs that you don’t notice until you spot them spun between your track lighting just when guests arrive at your home. Even if you regularly sweep your walls, corners, light fixtures and windows, cellar spider webs seem to be impossible to eliminate totally.

Contact your local Truly Nolen office for advice about cellar spider infestations and to learn about our Four Seasons approach to pest control. Our highly trained and certified technicians sweep for spiders and webs at quarterly visits and Truly Nolen’s IPM approach involves a barrier treatment to dissuade many insects from setting up shop in your home.

However, outdoors and in your garage or gardening shed, cellar spiders can help control other insects, like small moths, flies, mosquitoes and other insects or spiders that wander near their webs. If you don’t mind the scary-looking cobwebs lurking in the corner of your storage shed, these arachnids are avid trappers. Cellar spiders also make meals out of the infamous black widow spiders, venomous hobo spiders and many other insects that are harmful to you, your garden and your yard.
