Spider Treatment Gladstone

The chemical treatment of spiders is problematic due to their minimal contact with surfaces, walking with most of their body and abdomen off the ground. Even perimeter applications are of limited scope. So, the treatment needs to target the spider web or spider itself to maximise the results.

This spider control treatment uses a specialist spider spray to treat the outdoors surfaces of buildings including the eaves, window & door frames as well as any cracks and crevices where spiders may be hiding around the yard, including fences, sheds and play equipment. This treatment also targets web-building spiders such as the redback and black house spiders.
