Spider Control In Vancouver
Vancouver’s Spider Control & Spider Extermination Experts
As the weather changes with the seasons, you’re likely to run into unwelcome house guests: spiders.
Once summer temperatures cool, and as winter breaks to spring, spiders seek shelter from the changing elements. Wolf spiders, house spiders, weavers, and widows are among the types of spiders that can join your household. Spiders are generally non-social creatures, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring risks with them. All Green Pest Control specializes in deterring and exterminating spiders so your family can rest easy at night.
If you have a spider problem, contact us to schedule your spider control inspection.

Types of Spiders in Vancouver
If you’ve seen a spider in your Vancouver home or business, you might be wondering what kind of spider you’re facing, and what kind of risks it poses to those who come in contact with it.
Here are a few of the most common spiders in BC:
Hobo spiders are the most common house spider in Western North America. While not venomous, the hobo will become extremely defensive if an egg sac is threatened.
The cellar spider, also known as the daddy long-legs, is instantly recognizable by its long, thin legs. These spiders are not dangerous but will leave webs around your home.
Black widows are incredibly well-known, both for their distinctive red hourglass marking and their venomous bite. Bites from black widows can lead to hospitalization or death.
Orb weavers usually reside in wooded areas and salt marshes, but can also be found weaving webs near porch lights and lamp posts. Orb weavers are harmless and play a large role in insect control.
Identifying a Spider Infestation
Spider infestations are relatively easy to spot. Woven webs, egg sacs, and even the spiders themselves make it simple to spot spider presence.
This is one of the most easily recognizable indicators of spider presence. Spider webs come in many shapes and sizes, but most are patterned, loosely-woven silk structures. Some spiders also weave funnel-shaped or orb-shaped webs.
Spider webs are used to trap passing prey, but they also serve to protect egg sacs. Disturbing spider webs is the fastest way to alert a spider that something is wrong, as spiders often use the vibration of the web to inform their protective decisions.
Spider egg sacs are small, round sacs that contain eggs (both hatched and unhatched). These sacs can be white, yellow, or brown in color and can contain hundreds of baby spiders.
Spiders are extremely protective over egg sacs and will act defensively if webs or sacs are disturbed.
Spider Prevention Technician Tips
- Maintain a Clean and Clutter-Free Environment
Regularly vacuum and dust your living spaces, including corners, ceilings, and behind furniture. Pay extra attention to areas where spiders are commonly found, like basements and attics.
- Natural Spider Repellents
Peppermint oil, vinegar, and citrus oils are known to deter spiders. Mix these with water and spray around entry points and spider-prone areas.
- Spider Traps
Purchase spider traps or create your own by placing sticky tape or glue boards in areas where spiders are active. This method not only captures spiders but also helps you monitor their presence.
- Declutter Your Yard
Trim overgrown vegetation, remove piles of debris, and keep firewood away from the house. By eliminating outdoor hiding spots, you reduce the chances of spiders making their way indoors.
