Spiders. They don’t call them creepy-crawlys for nothing! For many people, just the sight of a spider in their home can cause a panic attack. In addition to being visually unappealing, some spiders can actually pose a danger to your family, pets and customers.
How Do I Know if the Spiders in My Home or Business are Dangerous?
We get this question a lot. While Daddy Longlegs might look funky, they are harmless spiders. But there are plenty of other spiders that aren’t!
There are actually over 48,000 species of spiders in the world. But in this neck of the woods, we have a handful of common spiders such as the American house spider, wolf spiders, orb weavers, cellar spiders (daddy longlegs), brown recluses, and black widows.
To identify spiders, you’ll need to be able to get a good look at them. And in some cases, as with black widows, that’s not a good idea. That’s why it’s always the best – and safest option – to call in professional pest control specialists.
We can come out to your home and business and take a look at your property to get a good idea of what you’re dealing with. In addition, we can then design a customized treatment plan.
Spiders Can Multiply Quickly!
Even if the spiders in your home or place of business aren’t venomous, they tend to spin their webs in the most inconvenient places, scaring away guests and customers. Ignoring a potential infestation is never a good idea, as most species of spiders have the ability to multiply – and quickly! For instance, the dangerous black widow spider can lay up to nine cocoons, each one containing between 300-800 eggs. Yuck!
