Spiders can be a nuisance when they cover your home in webs. They can make anyone who has unsuspectingly walked through a web look like they are practicing karate.
Spiders are arachnids. They have eight legs and no wings. Their bodies have two distinct regions.
All spider produce venom, but not all are fatal or harmful. A persons reaction to spider bites is determined by many things including area of the body, a persons general size and sensitivity, the amount of venom, venom potency and temperature. (Truman's Guide to PMO 2012)
Spiders very rarely bite people. Most in the Sheboygan County area are harmless and even incapable of biting a human.

Keeping your home sealed with good caulk is great for all insect control. Making sure window screens are not torn and door sweeps are not worn will also help keep pest out.
Triumph Pest Solutions can also help with an outside perimeter spider treatment. Certain products are more suited to spider control than others and you definitely get what you pay for.
The spider control treatment is generally twice a year around May and August. We treat around windows, doors, eaves and the base of the home. This localized treatment creates a barrier and focuses on the areas where they like to hide so that we use the product efficiently. Then when the spiders come out of their hiding spots they contact the product and eventually cease to exist. This barrier also help prevent any new spiders from entering the home.
Most buildings have acceptable control with two annual treatments. Prices start at $85 for a single story home and $100 for a two story home. Heavily infested buildings may require a follow up treatment.
