There are an estimated 38,000+ spider species in the world, which means they are a very common pest. Aside from the common fear of spiders, their bite can be painful and can possibly be dangerous depending on the spider. Our team is equipped with pest control techniques backed by science, over 20 years’ experience, and state of the art tools and products. Alaska Pest Management is ready to help you remove your current spider problem as well as provide protection from future issues that may arise.
Spiders can get into your home through loose screens or cracks under doors. They can also come into your home by hitchhiking on items you bring into your home.
There are no venomous spiders that are native to Alaska. A common mistake is identifying the hobo spider for a brown recluse spider. However, it is still possible for black widows or brown recluse to be transported in food. If you feel like you might have a venomous spider in your home, call us at 907-247-2847.
With no venomous spiders established in Alaska, it is likely that spider bites are not dangerous. But we are not medical professionals, and if you feel you have been bitten by a spider and are having any sort of reaction, please contact your medical provider.
The first step to a spider-free home is to call a professional. We are licensed to treat for spiders and are trained to see any issues that may be contributing to your problem. Here are some suggestions that you can follow to help keep down the spider population in your home:
Trim back any tree branches that may be hovering over your home.
Make sure the exterior of your home is clear from any leaves, wood, grass clippings, or any other organic compost.
Fix any door gaps, repair any torn window screens, and seal any cracks around your home with caulk.
