We could see the problem immediately: Spiders. The female spider was crawling on the web, egg sacs all around her. Carcasses of insects could be seen underneath; the remnants of earlier feeding.

Treatment ans Suggestions

We could have removed the web and told the customer the job was done. Far better however, to help the customer identify the source of the problem. Which we did. It’s the only way to provide a permanent solution.

Checks revealed sufficient humidity and dim crawl space to sustain insect activity. We recommended that the customer fix the moisture problem in order to reduce the risk of future insect infestation.

If you have any questions/comments, either leave me a comment below.
