There are more than 35,000 species of spiders worldwide, a few thousand of which are found in South Africa alone. Spiders can be a particular nuisance in the home. They are attracted to warm, dark small spaces, like wall cracks, corners, air vents, and in the eaves of your home. Other species prefer to stay closer to the outdoors, weaving their webs in your garden or near your outside lighting. Most spiders are a nuisance primarily because of their webbing.
Easily recognisable by their eight legs, some people happily tolerate the presence of spiders whilst others cannot bear the thought of them. Professional spider control is important for people with a real fear of spiders but also to control a large or repeat infestation. If you notice spiders on your property that you need to get rid of, your local yellow pages would be able to provide you with details of a spider operator who can alleviate your problem.
