I hate spiders!

Here, in the pacific northwest, we have an abundance of these eight legged pests. Spiders are a misunderstood aspect of our lives. Many people have a fear of these arachnids. Some of that fear comes from a misunderstanding of them. They are a beneficial part of our ecosystem and do more good than they do harm.

I have brown recluse spiders in my home!

Probably not. There are many different recluse spiders. The infamous Brown Recluse is a Midwestern spider. There are no established colonies of Brown Recluse spiders in western Washington.

what spiders will I see?

We live in an area that is heavily wooded with countless bodies of water around. These are very ideal conditions for spiders. Some of the most common spiders you will run into are; Grass Spiders, Orb Weavers, Sac Spiders, Common House Spiders, Cellar Spiders, (commonly misidentified as Daddy Longlegs), false widows, and yes the Hobo Spider.

Did you say Hobo Spider!?

Yes we do have Hobo Spiders in our area. At one time they were thought to have a medical relevance to humans. However, new research has determined that it was unfounded.

What can be done about them?

Spiders can be difficult to deal with if you do not know which ones they are. Different spiders have different habits and locations they live and breed in. Our technicians are very familiar with the spiders in our region. Once we identify what we are dealing with, we implement a customized plan to deal with them.
