Since 1990 we have seen an increasing demand for spider control suggesting a continuing increase in spider infestations in the UK and Ireland. Spiders such as the False widow and Brazilian wandering spider nonnative to the UK have seen an increase which can largely be attributed to increased trade from imports.

Pro Pest Pest Control regularly deals with spider infestations, whether it be native species or foreign, we have dealt with spider problems for major supermarkets such as ASDA and Tesco and our specialist team is ready and able to deal with your problem, no matter how big or small it may be.

Do you have a spider infestation?

Most spider infestations occur during the autumn and winter months when it is too cold for them to nest outside – this is also when adult spiders are fully grown and easier to spot.

Although UK spiders are mostly harmless, they can still be stressful and disruptive. If you see spiders regularly around your home or place of work, it is likely that they are nesting in spaces such as loft space or cavity walls.

The most telling sign that you have a spider infestation in a building is the presence of a web (or multiple webs). Make sure that you clear away webs regularly, both to deter spider activity and so you can see when new webs have been made. One or two webs don’t necessarily suggest an infestation, but if you see lots of webs, then you should contact us to check for any spiders.


Our teams are fully trained and experienced in dealing with many types of spider infestation, from the common house spider to the false widow. Our team always aims to provide you with swift, stress-free service, so we will get to you to address your problem within a few hours.
