A BETTER CLEAN

Agents for "EXTERMINANT" The NO SPRAY ANT KILLER that REALLY WORKS

SPIDERS

 

We have a few methods for treating spiders, either inside or outside, starting from the budget job and going up to the super thorough job. 

 

With internal treatments a residual contact insecticide is applied to ceilings, walls and other areas as instructed.

 

This internal pyrethrin treatment should kill most insects crawling on it for up to 12 weeks and has been reported to be effective up to a year after application.


We warrant internal treatments for 12 weeks except when temperature and humidity are high as these conditions lessen the effect of insecticides.


If temperature and humidity are low and spiders are not dying after treatment, it is possible that there is resistance to the insecticide in use.


If so, we would arrange to re-treat with a different insecticide.


INTERNAL CEILINGS, WALLS TO WINDOW LEDGE LEVEL


& WINDOW FRAMES


The cost of treating these areas in an average 3 bedroom house in town is $90
Extra Bedroom-sized Room is $10. Single Garage is $25 and Double Garage is $35.


Discounts may apply if you arrange a friend or neighbour to be done at the same time.

Note that these prices are based on average 3 bedroom houses around town and if your house was bigger than average, or had high ceilings, the price would naturally be more. Likewise, if your house is out in the country there may be a travel charge if we had to make a special trip to do just the one house. 


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Average 3 Bedroom House is 9 bedroom-sized rooms i.e......

Lounge/Dining = 3, 3 Bedrooms = 3, Hall & Laundry = 1, Kitchen = 1, Toilet & Bathroom = 1

An average bedroom is 12 square metres.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


INTERNAL CEILINGS, WALLS, WINDOW FRAMES AND SKIRTINGS


The cost of this treatment for an average 3 bedroom house in town is $120

Extra Bedroom-sized room is $13. Single Garage is $35 and Double Garage is $45


-----------------------------------------------------------


INTERNAL THOROUGH TREATMENT


We treat ceilings, walls, window frames, skirting boards PLUS wardrobes, hallway cupboards, behind and under fixtures and fittings (TV, Stereo, Couches, Beds and Other Furniture).


The cost of this treatment for an average 3 bedroom house in town is $200


--------------------------------------------------------------------


INTERNAL WHITETAIL TREATMENT


This needs to be a far more comprehensive treatment than standard spider treatments.


They don't have a web as they are nomadic hunters and don't stay in one place like most other spiders do.


They actually hunt spiders so they are continually on the move and get into the oddest of places.


People have been bitten by Whitetails that were on their clothes in a wardrobe....so we have to treat every nook and cranny to have any sort of chance to control Whitetails.


To do so we treat as per the Thorough Treatment above PLUS the insides of kitchen and laundry cupboards... AND  carpet and flooring surfaces.


You need to have done a lot of preparation before we arrive to treat these creatures.


You need to empty every cupboard and drawer in the kitchen and pantry. This includes the pot cupboard and the cutlery drawer.


The best place to put all this stuff is usually both on and under the dining table, and throw a sheet on top of it.


You then need to empty the bathroom and laundry cupboards, the hallway and hot water cupboards and all the wardrobes (empty them onto the beds).


Then pull all the furniture in the house away from the walls so we can treat behind them.


Upon re-entry you have the job of putting everything back in place AND washing food preparation areas and other places where uncovered food is placed.


Don't wash areas that won't have uncovered food placed on them. That would wash of the treatment which will usually continue to work for several weeks.


The cost of this treatment for an average 3 bedroom house in town is $370


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WINDOW AND DOOR CRACK AND CREVICE TREATMENT


This is usually an "add-on" to one of the other treatments. Over the years we have often found spiders alive and well after having treated both internal and external walls. These spiders were living in the cavities inside window and door frames and hinges. On request we will open windows and doors to treat these areas.


The cost to treat each door and window cavity is $3  


-------------------------------------------------------------------


INTERNAL BUDGET TREATMENT


This is only for the angled areas where ceilings and walls meet. It will kill most insects that crawl on it but leaves large areas untreated where spiders could become re-established. There is no warranty on this treatment.


The cost to treat an average 3 bedroom house in town is $70      



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What To Expect With Internal Spider Treatments


All spiders in the treated areas to be dead after treatment.


Any spiders coming inside and crawling on the treatment to die for at least 12 weeks after the treatment.


Overspray on windows which you may need to clean off.


What Not To Expect With Internal Spider Treatments


Spiders to die after 12 weeks from treatment.


Spiders to die during a period when temperature and humidity are high, as this weakens the effect of most insecticides. This is not a fault of either the insecticide or the technician. As soon as temperature and humidity return to normal, so should the effect of the insecticide.


Spiders to die where the treatment is applied over fresh paint which weakens insecticide.


Spiders to die where chlorine bleach has been used on the treated surface.


Spiders to die where the treated area is cleaned after treatment.


Spiders to die in areas where steam is created e.g. bathrooms and kitchens.


Spiders to die that have not come in contact with the insecticide, hence it is important to treat spiders before removing their webs. Otherwise they could create a fresh web over a treated surface and never get to come in contact with the insecticide.


Pre & Post-Treatment things YOU must do for all Inside Spider Treatments



Leave all cobwebs in place before treatment to let spiders crawl on a treated web.


Place all food and cooking utensils inside cupboards or cover them to avoid overspray.


Place toothbrushes inside cupboards.


Cover pillow cases and anything else that you do not want treated.


Ensure goldfish are covered & pets and people are outside until safe for re-entry (usually 4hrs after treatment).


Wash down food benches and dining tables after treatment and before use.


Dry brush webs away a couple of days after treatment.


Contact us if any webs re-appear within a couple of days of being removed.

    EXTERNAL SPIDER TREATMENTS


A residual contact insecticide (often with a waterproofing and u-v blocking additive) is applied to problem areas as instructed.


As this treatment is exposed to the elements its potency becomes less effective quicker than the inside treatment.


We do not warranty this treatment. Instead, we usually make an appointment to return and re-spray any webs that have been replaced within a couple of days after being removed.


The webs should have been removed within a week of treatment.

Spiders to die where the treatment is applied over fresh paint which weakens insecticide.

Pre and Post-Treatment You Need to do for External Spider Treatments


Leave all cobwebs in place before treatment to let spiders crawl on a treated web.


Ensure goldfish are covered.


Clean windows after treatment, leaving the treatment on the window frames.


Dry brush webs away a couple of days after treatment. They shouldn’t be washed off as that would help break down the insecticide.


Contact us if any webs re-appear within a couple of days of being removed. We will arrange an appointment to

re-treat these areas, provided you have contacted us within 2 weeks of the treatment.


Consider our maintenance programs where we treat affected areas more regularly to help keep spiders under control.
