There’s still time to plant

Start spi­der spray­ing now

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

If the eight legged and of­ten un­wanted arach­nids are slowly making their way in­doors, it’s time to act now.

For even though th­ese hard-to-love crea­tures aid in keep­ing the other in­sect pop­u­la­tion within your home down, they bring their own set of prob­lems: scar­ing the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion.

So if you’re not one for shar­ing your home with the furry, black, eight legged va­ri­ety, it’s time to call in the ex­perts or take a trip to your lo­cal DIY store.

If you think you’re up to the task of spray­ing your property your­self with­out run­ning in fear, you can gen­er­ally pick up a rep­utable spray­ing prod­uct for a very rea­son­able price.

Brands such as Ki­wicare, Ex­pra, Rip­cord, Bl­itzem, EcoS­MART and Mortein come with easy-to-fol­low in­struc­tions and many are in easy spray bot­tles too.

Sim­ply fol­low the in­struc­tions and spray the prod­uct around win­dow frames, door en­trances and other places spi­ders like to live on the ex­te­rior of your property, and watch as the spi­der pop­u­la­tion tak­ing up res­i­dence in your property de­creases. You can then ben­e­fit from six to 12 months of spi­der-free liv­ing, with many prod­ucts con­firm­ing this time­frame too.

En­sure you read the in­for­ma­tion on the pack­ag­ing care­fully to en­sure they are safe to be sprayed around pets and chil­dren.

There is also no time to de­lay as the op­ti­mum time for spray­ing spi­ders is Oc­to­ber/Novem­ber.

If you would pre­fer to leave this te­dious task in the hands of the ex­perts, there are cer­tainly plenty of them around.

Ask your friends and fam­ily for re­fer­rals and find out who is the best per­son for the job.

The ex­pert will then come to your property at a time and day that suits you and will erad­i­cate the prob­lem with ease.

Many also guar­an­tee their spray­ing for six to 12 months and of­ten re­spray if the prob­lem has not de­creased within that first six month pe­riod.

If spi­ders are be­com­ing more of an is­sue in the warmer months, then do not de­lay.

Or­gan­ise to spray your home and reap the ben­e­fits of no nasty sur­prises in the bath tub.
