Even though nearly all spiders are harmless, they are a mostly unwelcome guest in homes. At Thompson Brothers Exterminating and Waterproofing, we get a lot of calls for help with spider control.
Thompson Brothers provides effective spider control that is safe for your family and pets. Our technicians will inspect and focus on the areas both inside and outside your home that are preferred spider habitats. These include basements, crawl spaces, attics and outdoor wood piles, among other locations.
Spiders tend to be more active and a potential nuisance in the late summer months or early fall. This is when male spiders, looking for females to mate with, become more aggressive trying to enter homes. We find that late August or September is a great time to schedule your annual spider control treatment.
Many people are concerned about the possible presence of venomous spiders. Black widows are native to our area. Contrary to common belief, the brown recluse and the hobo spider are not native to the Carolinas. People often mistake other species for the brown recluse spider or the hobo spider in South Carolina.
At the same time, some people may experience reactions from a spider bite. While it is unlikely in South Carolina or North Carolina you have been bitten by a brown recluse or hobo spider, spider bites can cause various symptoms such as skin irritations that require attention.
If you are concerned about spiders in or around your home, contact Thompson Brothers to inspect your property and perform a full spider control treatment.

Thompson Brothers does an excellent job spraying my home throughout each season to keep unwanted pests out. They are locally owned and customer service is a top priority.
We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
