That moment when the noisy neighbor says with a fake smile, “Well, at least you won’t have to decorate for halloween,” and it’s July?!!

Survey Says?

I’ll bet that if the game show Family Feud asked 100 people what they were most afraid of, you would find that spiders would be on the list of top 5 responses.  People associate spiders with creepy houses, poisonous bites, and other scary things. I want to talk about one of the downsides of spiders in the Boise area, which is spiderwebs. Spiderwebs are an indication that you have a spider infestation. Not only that but after it has collected a few hundred flies and gathered a month’s worth of dust it can look downright scary. Don’t let that be you!

How to remove spiderwebs

Spiderwebs are typically easy to remove if you have access.   A broom or a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment will usually do the trick on most surfaces.  However, some surfaces like stucco or a popcorn textured ceiling can be tricky. Spider webs are very sticky and sometimes make it really difficult to remove webs from uneven surfaces.  Add another level of difficulty if the roof or porch overhang is too high to access.

Looking for a long-term solution

Cleaning is just the start.  I hear this one all the time, “I cleaned off the webs around my porch and they were back a week later!”  That’s where the Barrier Pest Control professionals come in. Not only can Barrier remove nasty webs and wasp nests in high places but we can make sure they don’t come back.  A treatment around the perimeter, in overhangs, and in cracks and crevices will ensure that spiders can’t take permanent residence on your home. With help from Barrier, you can keep those bugs out of your home and get your nosy neighbor off your back.
