Spider Control in Aurora, CO
Spiders are one of the most common pests in
Colorado, and Aurora is no exception. The main types of spiders we see are black widows,
wolf spiders, and
house spiders (a generic name for normal types of spiders you find indoors).
Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:
Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners,
basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.
Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come
into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.
Regardless of what kind of spiders you’re seeing around your home
or business, we can take care of them for you!
Easily recognizable by the red hourglass shape on their bellies,
black widows are a feared spider among many. While their bites don’t often cause
death, their venom is 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake, making
them quite dangerous. Symptoms of a black widow bite include nausea, paralysis
of the diaphragm, and muscle aches.
Black widows survive off other pests and insects such as:
Black widows prefer to hide away in dark, dry, man-made structures such
as barns, decks, outhouses, sheds, woodpiles, and more. Inside a home,
they are commonly found in dimly lit crawl spaces, garages, and basements.
The Hobo spider hitched rides with humans along Pacific Northwest highways
to distribute itself in 6 American states. Hobo spiders are aggressive
house spiders that are quite difficult to identify due to the similarities
they share with other spiders. They love to hide in dark, moist spaces—such
as basements and crawl spaces—and are often found in holes, cracks,
and crevices. Hobo spiders are not great at climbing, so you will almost
always find them underground.
In order to prevent hobo spiders in your home:
- Seal common entry points such as cracks along the foundation
- Replace all window screens that have holes
- Clear away clutter from basement or garage
- Avoid storing shoes on the floor

Aurora, CO Wasp Removal
During late summer and early fall,
wasps come out in full force as they search for food to sustain themselves through
winter. While they typically do not sting unless they are provoked, having
a wasp colony near your home can be incredibly unsafe for you and your
family, particularly for those who are allergic to wasps. Unlike bees,
wasps can sting over and over again thanks to their smooth stingers.
To keep wasps away, you should:
- Avoid leaving meat or sweet drinks sitting outside
- Keep your trashcans sealed up
- Keep your doors and windows shut
- Don’t leave trash lying around
- Cover or fill any holes in the ground
Aurora Termite Control
Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year,
termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden
away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before
a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean,
drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential
to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.
Things that attract termites include:
- Piles of wood
- Dead or decaying trees
- Cellulose material
- Clogged gutters
- Warm, dark places
- Moist soil
If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural
damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.
Rat Removal in Aurora
Rats are one of the most dreaded pests around. With the ability to squeeze
through a hole as small as the size of a quarter and chew through glass,
cinderblock, wire, and aluminum, rats have no problem making their way
They can potentially wreak tons of havoc on a home by:
- Contaminating food by eating it, urinating on it, and leaving droppings on it
- Spreading diseases and bacteria throughout a home
- Chewing through wires, which can start a fire
- Chewing through the structure of a home
In order to keep these pests away, seal any holes or cracks along the foundation
of your home, store food in airtight containers, keep your home clean,
and keep all storage areas dry and clean.
Mice can squeeze themselves through a hole the size of a pen, which means it
is incredibly easy for them to make their way into a home. They typically
enter homes in the winter months looking for a place that can provide
shelter, food, and water. These tiny pests carry over 200 human pathogens,
making them incredibly harmful. By leaving urine and droppings throughout
a home, they can seriously endanger a family.
To keep mice out of your home, you should:
- Seal any holes along the foundation of your home
- Never leave food out
- Empty your kitchen trash cans often
- Keep your home clean and free of clutter
- Keep storage areas organized, clean, and dry
Carpenter Ant Control in Aurora
Carpenter ants are a common pest in Aurora. These large ants love to build their nests
in wood that has been weakened by age, moisture, or some other factor.
It’s common to find them in wooden fences, decks, or even siding
on the outside of homes. Inside, the most common places to spot carpenter
ants are around water sources, like kitchens and bathrooms.
Most Aurora pest control companies charge extra to deal with carpenter
ants since they are a tough pest to eradicate. Not
proof. pest control, though! We include carpenter ant protection on our popular, year-round
Pest-Free Guarantee™ service.
This service also provides full protection against all other ants, all
other stinging pests (like wasps or hornets), small rodents (like mice),
