You might be wondering why people would bother with hiring professionals to treat spiders. There are many reasons for this, especially when it comes to poisonous spiders like the black widow or brown recluse. Let’s get to the basics first.
What is a spider?
Spiders are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs able to inject venom. Mostly, they are not dangerous because most of these creatures are catching other pests and eat them as their source of food.
These won’t typically enter a home intentionally. These are simply seeking out the bugs so that they can eat.
How will I know if I am invaded by spiders?
Webs are the first thing you’re going to find on your wall corners or ceilings. These are usually like hanging dusts that is not pleasant to our eyes.
Also, if you have an attic or old boxes, they could hide there and grow more of their kind. One reproduction could produce between 2 and 100 offspring.
2 Types of Poisonous Spiders
Not all spiders are detrimental. A few like the black widow and brown recluse are harmful to humans. It is important that we know their characteristics so that we can find ways to treat them carefully.
Black Widow Spider
Black shiny body with red markings on it’s belly is usually the mark of this kind. These are found outdoors in wood piles, barns, and sheds. It’s also not uncommon to find them inside a home or building.
Homes or buildings that are infested with insects are usually the target of this creature. They are beneficial but when these are provoked, especially female black widows, they could and will attack humans.
The bite of female black widow could affect our nervous system. You may feel severe pain, burning, swelling, and redness when bitten. You may even see two fang marks. So be careful and don’t poke at tall grasses and piles of wood where these may be found.
Brown Recluse Spider
A brown body with a black line on the back is what we discover. They too are typically found outdoors but it’s common to find them inside in closets or other dark areas, where we rarely clean.
Their reason of infiltrating houses or establishments is they see abundance of insects or bugs and these are their food source.
Unlike the black widow, the brown recluse rarely bites humans. If they do, it is because we intentionally poked their nests, or we rolled on them while we are sleeping. Their bite results to lesions or wound, nausea, and fever.
In order to completely get rid of the spiders you must first make sure to get rid of the other many insects and pests.
