Pest Control Companies to Watch
It's important that your pest control company treats your crawl space, as camel crickets and their predator, the spiders, can quickly cause problems in the forms of hundreds or even thousands of pests.Transcription:
So we got a camel cricket population in the basement. Millions of baby camel crickets, this year's crop, plus the bigger ones that are up in the insulation. They feed a spider population, if you look over here you can see a spider web with four egg-sacs. Each egg sac will have four hundred to eight hundred babies. Now the spider isn't here because it's winter time and this spider probably died, but it leaves behind eggs that will hatch in the spring and start to feed on these camel crickets. Eventually these baby spiders will put pressure on the sub-flooring of the house and end up going up into the home.
It's really important that your pest control company treats the crawl space. If you can see the eggs in one of these egg-sacs, they're little white dots. This is, I'm holding approximately four thousand spiders in my hands next spring. That's why you can't just treat around the outside of the home and expect control of a spider population.
