Pool Cage Maintenance: How Do You Get Spiders Out Of The Pool Cage

How do you get spiders out of the pool cage?


Always remember, we do have poisonous spiders in Florida, and if you have any questions about what type of spider you are dealing with, be sure to use extreme caution. Fortunately the most common dangerous spiders found on Pool Cages are black and brown widows, which are generally easily identifiable.It is not totally clear from the question is you are referring to removing non web building spiders from inside the pool cage, or if you are asking how to prevent web building spiders from making their home within your pool enclosure. This being said I will answer both to the best of my ability.

For those pesky wolf spiders that tend to find their way into the dardest places, the simplest solution is to simply shoo them away. A broom or shoe works great. I prefer not to squish them, simply because I’m not afraid of them, and would rather have them outside eating mosquitoes than as a splat on my sidewalk. Also, as my wife recently found out, squishing then can sometimes bring much unwanted side effects. She recently attempted this, only to disperse about 100 much smaller spiders (I guess the babies hang out on the mother for a period of time).

So not that we all have a good case of the hebee-jebees, lets talk about web building spiders.

The first approach would be to prevent them from entering the pool cage in the first place. This can be accomplished in several different ways.

First and foremost is having any damaged screen panels repaired by a screen repair company . This will insure that any holes and access points around the entire enclosure are minimized.

After this, the next most common gap in your screen rooms defenses are below the screen doors. The screen door can be solved by ensuring that the bug sweep (or weather stripping) is in tact. Often when this simple device gets old, the rubber strip that is supposed to make a seal with the concrete deck, gets brittle and cracks or falls off completely. This leaves you with a large gap and is practically inviting all sorts of critters into your poolside sanctuary. Replacing this is a simple as removing three or four screws, and re-securing the new sweep in place. Now, a bug sweep can only
offer so much security as there will always be some gaps due to design and uneven deck material. To get around this, the next best thing is the installation of a threshold. This is an extruded aluminum threshold that is installed inside the screen door and screwed down to the deck. It provides a flush surface for the screen door to seal to.

Entry point number three would be where the aluminum structure attaches to the house. It is common practice for this to be caulked with a silicone or butyl based sealant. Over time this seal can become brittle and crack, or contract, both of which can create gaps. This can be solved by re-sealing these points with a fresh layer of caulking.

Inevitably, even if you have all of these things in proper order, you will end up with beautify spun spider web inside your enclosure. While this may be fun to look at, it is not fun to walk through when you least expect it. So, how do you deal with your little eight legged friends? Again, the broom may be your simplest option. But you can also have the enclosure pressure washed, thereby removing all of the hard to reach webs, and eradicating the spiders for the time being. You can also find an insecticide to spray the bugs with. Spiders are tricky because bait and residue insecticides generally don’t work. You are usually left having to spray them directly. If you have trouble finding such spray at the hardware store, see if there is a local “do it yourself” pest
control shop in town. They will be able to point you in the right direction on your quest to vanquish your many eyed foes.

Gulf Gate did the driveway paver installation for me and my 2 neighbors. Their price was very good (I got several estimates) and their workmanship was...
very fast and professional they turned up when they said they would. The work they did was excellent. And I was pleasantly surprised by the price. Thank you for the new pool cage
I needed my entire 40x50 enclosure rescreened because cement dust had bonded on my brand new screens. OUCH. The company that I used to build this huge enclosure ($50,000) wouldn’t schedule my rescreening for 2 months. I couldn’t believe it. I was referred to Gulf Gate Rescreening by a friend. What a blessing. Gulf Gate’s Manager Tim sent his inspector to view the job within 2 days. Tim scheduled a 4 man crew to rescreen my enclosure in just one week with the exact brand of screen that had been ruined. They completed the entire job in just one day - within 10 days of me first contacting them. Amazing! This was a different job because the enclosure surrounded a big garden which was lined with bushes and had palm trees and all kinds of plants inside. They didn’t harm any bushes or plants or irrigation sprinklers and left the area all cleaned up. I was impressed. Special thanks to Tim and the crew. I’m posting this lengthy review because Gulf Gate Rescreening and Tim really earned my respect for a job so well done. That’s rare if not impossible to find these days.
We needed miscellaneous screen and cage work. Scheduling was easy, even after I had to change original date. Arrived on time. Work was quick and well done....
