Boat Dock Spider Control

Spider Control Around Boat Docks

Of all the guests that could come aboard your boat, spiders are the least welcome. Spiders, especially common during summertime, can seriously damage the aesthetics of your boat. Their grayish, brown, or black droppings look like tiny dots and can cover the entire exterior deck and seat covers. Removal of these droppings can be difficult and costly, resulting in permanent damage to finishes and upholstery.

Automatic Misting Systems for Boat Dock Spider Control

One of the most effective ways to manage the number of spiders on your boat dock is to apply an effective misting concentrate. Misting concentrates are designed to knock down both spiders and other types of insects; thus eliminating their food source. Automatic misting systems deliver a detergent based solution from nozzles, mounted in the dock rafters, which produce a fine mist to regularly treat the entire dock structure and the boat below. Common insecticides, while effective, are not recommended for use on boat docks because they are toxic to fish. Instead, we use a concentrate that is specially formulated to be used over water. These special concentrates effectively kill spiders, flies, mosquitoes, wasps and other insect pests by breaking down their exoskeleton without harming the environment. Two brands we carry that fit this description are Pyranha Zero-Bite and Naprovit It important to note that since both Pyranha Zero Bite and Naprovit are soap based concentrates, you cannot use an agitator with them as it will cause excessive foaming. 

There are a variety of misting systems to fit your needs. The most popular for boat docks  is our 20 gallon / 20 nozzle (max) unit, the AMS-MM+20. If you need more than 20 nozzles to cover the area there are larger 55 gallon (75 or 100 max nozzle) systems.
