Spider Control

Spiders are creepy, crawly and potentially dangerous. Pinpoint Pest Control has been eradicating spiders from homes and businesses for over 40 years. Our family-run company has the experience and knowledge to deal with your spider problem, no matter how bad it is. In the San Diego area, there are four main types of spiders that can invade homes.

    • Daddy long-legs are recognizable by their small body and very long legs. They are disconcerting but relatively harmless. They're likely to linger in dark, damp places, such as basements.
    • Wolf spiders look scary because of their big, hairy body and short legs, but they aren't much of a threat to humans. They don't have webs to catch their prey. Instead, they use their speed to run down any other bugs they find.
    • Black widows are trouble. Their venom can sicken or kill you. They're recognizable by a red hourglass shape on their abdomen. If you see one in your home, don't mess with it. Call us immediately.
    • Brown recluse spiders prefer dark, solitary places, like old sheds, pantries and wood piles. Their bite can cause necrosis of the skin. They have a distinctive dark brown violin marking on their back. Do not disturb a brown recluse spider. Contact us to handle them.

Spiders belong outside, not in your home. Pinpoint Pest Control hates spiders as much as you do. We'll rid your home of these pests with biological or natural methods if possible. If it's necessary to use insecticides, we use low-impact products that won't harm your family or pets.
