Cellar Spider

Our remedy for cellar spider control

First, contact us. Cellar Spider control efforts should include regular removal of actual cellar spiders with a vacuum, brush or broom helps limit their numbers. Seal cracks and holes in your home’s exterior and install tight-fitting screens in foundation and attic vents. In cases involving considerable numbers of spiders, a spider control professional should be consulted.

These and dozens of other common household pests are covered under our most popular residential service, the Healthy Home Maintenance Program.

How to Identify a Cellar Spider


Up to 3/4″ in body length, with an extremely thin body structure. Pale yellowish, light brown or grey. Their extremely long legs make these spiders appear much larger and give them their nickname of “daddy long legs”.


Cellar spiders prefer dark, damp areas such as crawl spaces, basements and shed, although they may be found around doorways, in warehouses and sometimes in garages of homes. They hang upside down in their webs. When disturbed, they shake their web violently. They are not dangerous and are actually quite helpful in that they have been known to capture and eat other spiders, including black widows and brown recluses.


Like all spiders, cellar spiders will kill and eat almost any insect.

…and for almost a decade, my home is spider and bug free.

“Franklin has been providing us services for almost a decade. I live between Lake Michigan and Wolf Lake. I had spiders outside and inside, some so large (wolf spiders) they needed license plates! We also have mice in our garage. They spray the outside of our home 3x a year and for almost a decade, my home is spider and bug free. Mice are rarely seen. Daniel is our rep and is amazing. He’s a welcome site when he arrives and does a thorough job every time with exceptional customer service skills- I hope he remains our service provider for the duration in my home. Highly recommend Franklin AND Daniel!”
