Spider control can be a major concern for homeowners - particularly for those who live in the vagetative areas of Kenya. There are about 3,00 species of spiders throughout Kenya, but only few can cause serious harm when accidentally disturbed - the black widow and brown recluse for instance.

If spiders are infesting your home, contact our pest professional. They will be able to inspect your home, confirm the species of spider and recommend a course of proper spider control.
