Our Control Methods

Urban Pest Management will not "blanket spray" entire garden areas in an attempt to control the spider infestation. Treatments such as those merely aggravate other ground dwelling spiders often mobilizing them towards the house. Non-target species of insects can also be destroyed in this manner. Any control measures require our trained technicians to search through the garden and apply treatment to each Funnel web nesting site located.

Our office provides free quotations for treatment tailored to suit your budget.
