At this year’s New York Pest Expo we were honored to have Dr. Bill Robinson of B&G Equipment share with us his insights on the Biology and Control of Household Spiders. He helped us learn more about the common species known to inhabit homes.

Spiders are everywhere and may be a health threat because every spider is venomous to a degree. Every spider can bite and will inject a foreign protein.  They are difficult to control because spiders don’t have tarsal pads like a cockroach and, therefore, a residual insecticide may not affect them.  Spiders are also seasonal. They are more prominent in the spring and fall.
