(KMOV) -- A Chesterfield family is taking extreme measures to wipe out an infestation of brown recluse spiders in their home.
McCarthy Pest and Termite has covered the entire home in a tent so technicians can pump vikane gas into the house.
“We are going to use gas that will penetrate inside the walls into the attic, the basements, all the nooks and crannies. These spiders typically hide out and we can’t get to them,” said expert Bob Richardson.
News 4 was told the treatment costs anywhere from $3,000 and up depending on the size of the home.
Traditional treatment, which includes insecticides typicalls costs at least $1,000 a year.
