Our pest spraying service is an effective solution for
keeping spiders and other bugs off - and out of your building
There is really nothing worse than resident spiders messing up your building – especially if you are trying to convey a great first impression for your clients or residents. A 6-monthly insect spray treatment is a great investment to mitigate this issue.
How often does it need to be done and when is the best time?There are many recommendations on the internet about the best seasons to spray – but as far as we’re concerned you can spray anytime throughout the year. We see spider webs all year round, spiders need to eat and their web is their pantry. That said – they do hibernate during the colder months so spraying mid-winter is probably not going to be as effective as in Spring or Summer
Most people would notice more activity in Autumn and Spring, when it gets cooler the spiders tend to come inside (loud shrieks ensue..), and in Spring when everything is buzzing there seem to be more webs built to catch the abundance of flying food.
Short answer – we do spray all year round and get great results whatever the season. Ultimately we recommend 6 monthly for our commercial clients and we like to spray a few weeks prior to a building wash or window clean.
What it is and how does it work?We use Kiwicare’s commercial-grade Deltamethrin 15SC which is a professional strength, long-lasting insect control product. It kills 99% of common insect pests – see the list below. Sprayed surfaces are safe to children and pets (as well as adults we assume) Overspray will not damage plants around your building.
When spraying we target foundations, vents, window and door frames and any protruding structures like canopies, louvres & architectural facades, light fittings and signs. On some long run iron-clad buildings we spray all the walls if spiders have build nests between the ridges in the iron. When a spider or insect walks over a treated surface – especially their webs, they pick up the residue and subsequently turn up their toes.
