Black Widow Control in LA, Orange Co. & San Diego
Black Widow Spiders
Black widow spiders can be identified by their shiny black bodies and red hourglass-shaped pattern. These spiders weave webs close to the ground that are irregularly shaped and asymmetrical. Their bites are a neurotoxin that can cause pain in adults. For small children, pets, peope with weakend immune systems or the ederly, black widow bites are more severe and require immediate medical intervention.
Black Widow Inspection
Your pest control service will begin with a licensed technician providing a full inspection of your residence and property to identify the widow infestation. During the inspection, your technician will identify potential problem areas around your home and yard. After the source of the problem areas have been identified, your technician will point out other potential areas widows may be found and offer steps you can take to reduce future infestations. Your technician will create a customized black widow treatment plan for year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious black widow control solutions.
Black Widow Pest Control Service
We not only kill and control your current black widows, but help prevent any future black widow outbreaks. Most widow infestations originate outside and your technician will focus on the perimeter of the home and outlying areas of the yard. In some cases, black widows may come inside and your technician will look for and treat indoor infestations if found. Future service treatments will be exterior-only, without requiring you to be home or having to worry about scheduling conflicts. Griffin Pest Management offers Monthly, Bi-Monthly and one time black widow services with no contract required.
Both the inside and outside of your home are always under warranty. We guarantee your satisfaction between regular scheduled maintenance services. If at any time you find yourself in need of an additional treatment between regular scheduled services, call us and we will return to re-treat your home.
Quick Facts About Black Widows
Black widow spiders spin their webs near ground level. They often build their webs in protected areas, such as in boxes and in firewood.
Black widow spiders are often found around wood piles and gain entry into a structure when firewood is carried into a building. They are also found under eaves, in boxes, under play sets and outdoor furniture where they are undisturbed.
The venom of a black widow spider is a neurotoxin and is used as a defense. Black widow spiders do not bite humans instinctively. The black widow spider bite can cause severe pain. Young children and the elderly are especially susceptible to a severe reaction to a black widow spider bite.
Avoid black widow spider bites by wearing heavy gloves when moving items that have been stored for a long period of time. Spiders often hide in shoes, so check shoes and shake them out before wearing. When spider webs are visible, use caution before putting your hands or feet in that area.

Spider Pest Control Testimonials
Excellent service, always thorough. Cleans all the spider webs on the house and patio furniture. Always asks if there is any particular problems they need to address. Haven't seen any spiders or ants since using them. Would definitely recommend them.

I started using Griffin when there was a change in ownership. I have a ridiculous fear of spiders. I stopped service for a bit in an attempt to cut back on my budget. During that time Kirsty paused my service(in order to keep my initial price) and stayed in touch with me every few months. I reinstated my service and she has always provided amazing customer service. I recently noticed my lounge chairs had been hiding and called to ask for special attention to my patio furniture for the summer use(along with conveying my fear of spiders). On her day off she and her husband coordinated coming out that same day. So thoughtful and nice considering my next scheduled appointment was just the following week. Her husband Jesse is currently here going over my yard and home in detail because of my irrational fear of spiders. They deserve more than 5 stars.

I would definitely recommend Griffin Pest Control. We had what i thought was a carpet beetle infestation ( turned out to be less serious then i imagined.) i really wanted someone to come out and give an estimate; furthermore start the process of getting rid of whatever bug/ spider etc. problem we were dealing with because i have the worst insect/ spider phobia known to man! After explaining this to the individual on the phone, she was able to contact one of the exterminators and fit us into what was an already jam packed schedule on a friday! Jesse came out, assessed the situation, gave us a quote, and promptly began the treatment recommended for our home. He was awesome, and was very informative and helpful. He really put my mind at ease and gave me my home back!! Thanks so much!!!!

We had an overwhelming amount of pincher bugs & spiders around the property. Griffin came out & we have not seen any further bugs in our home. They are very personable, informative & communicate well. Not to mention very affordable. I'm glad we chose Griffin for our home pest management.

Just wanted to yelp about what great service I received from your rep Joe Wilburn. Recently we have been seeing black widow spiders and with 2 kids around needed to get the problem taken care of. The appointment process was easy and Joe came out and did his job with a good attitude and professionalism. Thank you Griffin!

I am so happy I found Griffin Pest Control. They fumigated my home with expert service so I asked them about pest control as I had a problem with black widows in my yard. As a child care provider the safety of my children is very important. I informed them that I couldn't have chemicals around the children so they set up a Saturday service. Joe Wilburn has been treating my home and has always exhibited a dedication to his job and been on time. I have recommended Griffin Pest Control to all my friends.
I have used this company for over 4 years and, for a long time, Glen was my pest controller. I was discouraged when he retired to Texas three months ago. Amazingly, my new guy, Jesse, is even better! He is thorough and pays attention to details that wouldn't occur to me. Just today, he uncovered a lot of brown widow spiders under my patio furniture and obliterated them. I love the way everyone at Griffin talks to me as if they know me and I trust them with any pest challenge. I highly recommend this company.
