Corky’s Ultimate Pest Control Service plan includes treatment to many of the migrating spiders’ harborage areas and nesting sites including window casing, door frames, eaves, foundations, fence-lines, cracks and crevices, and under and into the foliage of landscape plantings, small trees and shrubs.
We are committed to providing timely and effective control for our customers, but without a regularly scheduled maintenance program, infestations of spiders are sure to recur, since they migrate (crawl or float in) from neighboring properties.
Your technician will make recommendations as to measures that will promote successful control of these pests on your property. The following should be accomplished before any service is performed in order to ensure a successful treatment. Other recommendations specific to your property may be made at the time of service.
CORKY'S MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE
We are confident that the service we provide will meet or beat your expectations for the control of spiders on your property. If in the event, our initial efforts do not afford you the control you expected and subsequent corrective measures are unsuccessful, we will refund the amount of your last paid service.
A landscape tick, mosquito, aphid and whitefly prevention treatment is included in the Spider Control Service as a free added benefit. There is no implied guarantee for these insects as ticks may be brought to the property by skunks, opossums, rats and other outside sources that are beyond our control. Flying insects; mosquitoes, aphids and whitefly, fly in from outlying areas, surrounding the properties that we treat, and are therefore not included as part of any guarantee.
How do spiders get in your home and property?
Spiders fly (or rather, float) on air currents to find better places for survival. As new spiderlings, they release several silk threads that act as a kind of parachute that carries them with the wind. This behavior is called ballooning or kiting. Not all spiders survive the trip which can range from just a few meters to several hundred miles.
Spiderlings can land anywhere: plants, fences, pool equipment, patio furniture, doorways and window sills. When they land, they crawl to the nearest shaded area for protection. Then they immediately begin building a web to capture food and have a safe place to continue growth. As the spiders continue to grow, so does the size of their webs, and they can often become massive as time passes.
Many spiders live for a year or longer (depending on the species). The ones that land on your property during a spring breeze will mature to adulthood by the time fall rolls around. Most species stay outside all the time and never come inside your home. However in autumn, mature male house spiders start to move around in search of mates. Although most remain outside, some might be drawn by your home’s heat and will venture inside if they come across an easy entry point.
Corky’s Spider Control service is uniquely planned to provide the greatest amount of control and extermination for the best value and is tailored to individual properties, infestation levels and adapted for each season.

Customized treatments target the spider’s most desired harborage areas and nesting sites, unique to your property. Here’s what you may expect our service to include.
Inspection: Our technician will perform a thorough property inspection to determine, the species of spider, what’s attracting them to the property and the level of infestation.
Treatment: Treatment includes the brushing of webs from eave areas and the use of low-impact and/or botanical products that are effective and proven spider solutions. These customized treatments target immediate problems as well as help provide future control.
