Spider Pest Control Services Clover, NC
With their main purpose in life being catching and eating other insects—sometimes very annoying ones like mosquitoes and flies—spiders can be beneficial. But nearly all spider species are venomous to their prey. For humans, most spider venom causes little if any harm or lasting discomfort, but they’re still not welcome guests when they head indoors.
If you live in Clover and need professional spider control, don’t wait to contact us online or call (704) 499-9922.
Why Use Professional Spider Exterminators?
Some North Carolina spider species are highly poisonous, especially the Southern black widow and the Brown Recluse spiders. Some in our region—like the Wolf Spider and Jumping Spider—may cause discomfort for those with allergies or bite sensitivity. Other spiders might just annoy you.
Some folks have arachnophobia, an intense, even incapacitating fear of spiders. It’s estimated that 3.5% to 6% of the population suffers from this phobia. So if it affects someone in your household, imagine their relief at seeing our spider exterminators in action!
Call the pros at Noosa Pest Management, and we’ll identify and eradicate your spiders using safe and effective treatments. Our technicians can also recommend ways to keep spiders out of your Clover home.
How Spiders Get Inside
Like many pests, spiders seek shelter indoors. These tiny arachnids slide through foundation cracks or gaps around windows or doors to get inside. They can also find openings on vents or utility pipes.
If you bring in firewood, items from your garage or shed, or second-hand purchases, they might contain spiders. And once spiders get in, they find dark places to hide, spin webs, and lay eggs. So check attics, basements, closets, cardboard boxes—anywhere they can remain undisturbed.
Keeping Spiders Outside
There are steps you can take to help keep spiders from entering your Clover home:
- Inspect your home for openings and seal them, including tiny cracks. Also, check weather stripping and replace what’s worn or damaged. Repair or replace damaged screens to discourage flies. And open doors and windows only when necessary.
- Store leftover food (including pet food) in sealed containers and wipe down kitchen surfaces. Don’t delay dishwashing, either. Vacuum cobwebs regularly, and sweep behind appliances, furniture, bedding, curtains, etc.
- Trim bushes and trees near your home and keep firewood piles away from the foundation. Also, cover all outdoor trash cans.
- Since certain outdoor lighting attracts bugs, using yellow or sodium vapor lights will draw fewer. Locate brighter lights (e.g., floodlights) at a distance from your home and focus them on spots needing illumination.
- Keep landscape plants, shrubs and trees pruned and away from your home. Spiders go there seeking bugs. If they eat those that harm your plants, that’s great!
Identifying a Spider Infestation
Spiders can be shy and hard to spot, and identifying their species can be tricky. However, it’s easy to observe spiders' presence since they spin webs to trap their meals. So if you see lots of webs, you probably have lots of spiders.
You might also notice egg sacs wrapped in a ball. If you see these, know that, typically, hundreds of baby spiders will hatch from them. This process takes two to three weeks, and they reach adulthood in about a year.

Clover Spider Control FAQs
First, try to identify the spider. Then, if it’s not known for harmful bites (see below), use standard first aid by cleaning the wound, applying ice, and using over-the-counter medications as needed.
But if it’s a black widow (with its red “hourglass” marking), you might have unpleasant (and potentially dangerous) symptoms, like:
- Redness, pain, and swelling.
- Severe abdominal cramping.
- Nausea, vomiting, tremors, or sweating.
The brown recluse is another harmful spider. It’s brown-colored and typically avoids people. If you get a brown recluse bite, you might not notice. However, their venom destroys tissue around the bite and can spread elsewhere. It also causes fever, chills, and body aches. Though rare, these bites can lead to seizures and coma.
If you believe you may have a spider infestation, inspect your property inside and out. Look for:
- Webs around your house, including in shrubbery
- Egg sacs, particularly during our cooler months
- Bites that you can’t attribute to other types of pests
- Significant populations of pests such as flies and ants, which spiders eat
They generally prefer dark, humid spots, so check your closets, attics, sheds, and other places you use for storage.
If you have a few spiders, DIY spider control methods may work. If you have many, it’s an infestation, and you’ll need professional spider pest control services. Since spiders reproduce quickly, you should act fast. Call us at 704-499-9922.
