The Dangers Of Spiders In Your Home

From tarantulas to black widows, we've got a lot of spiders in Arizona that can freak you out. The good news is not many of them are dangerous. The bad news is, dangerous or not, keeping spiders out of your house is no easy task. 

While most spiders are not dangerous, we do have two types of spiders in Arizona that are. These are the black widow spider and the desert recluse spider. Thankfully, neither of these spiders is a mortal threat to adults. However, they can be a deadly threat to children and pets. Even in adults, they can cause a host of serious symptoms that often need medical intervention. 

Black widow spiders have a neurotoxic venom that can cause systemic symptoms ranging from nausea and vomiting to muscle spasms or even trouble breathing. Meanwhile, the desert recluse is a relative of the brown recluse, meaning it has hemotoxic venom that can cause necrosis around the bite site. Necrosis means the tissue around the bite will die and begin to decay, leading to infections and scarring, so it's important to be seen by a doctor if any kind of recluse spider bites you.

Black widows have a very distinct look and are usually easy to recognize. However, recluse spiders are pretty indistinguishable from many other common household spiders. The best way to protect yourself from these potentially dangerous spiders is to keep all spiders out of your home. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done.

Spider Control And Removal From Overson Pest Control

Removing spiders once they're inside your home can be a huge hassle. Spiders that feed on other insects inside your home can easily breed there. Once this happens, you can wind up with thousands of little spiderlings crawling all over your house in a matter of weeks. Spiders lay egg sacs that contain anywhere from dozens to over a thousand individual offspring, so it's easy to see how once an infestation gets going, it can be impossible to stop. 

This is where we come in. Here at Overson Pest Control, we can help you get rid of spiders in your home and the infestations that are drawing them into your house. In reality, spiders only come indoors chasing their prey, which is your primary infestation. Spiders are almost always a secondary infestation. 

If you have a spider infestation, you might not just need to take care of the actual spiders; you'll likely also need to take care of whatever prey has drawn them indoors. This prey could be cockroaches, flies, silverfish, or any other bug that spiders like to eat. The good news is we can help you with both local spiders and their favorite food items.

Our Spider Control Process 

Here at Overson Pest Control, our spider control process consists of three steps.

Typically, an inspection is not necessary for spider infestations. You simply tell us where you see spiders, and we will come in and treat that area. However, if you suspect that you have an infestation of other insects that are drawing the spiders in, we can inspect for those to determine if they are, in fact, attracting spiders into your home. Our general pest control services include spiders and many of the most common prey that attracts them.

Typically, the first places we like to take care of when we begin treatment for spiders are the areas where they like to breed and nest. Spiders love to weave webs in areas with lots of light because this light attracts prey pests like moths, beetles, and flies.

Many spider species also love to go under appliances, inside cabinets, and in other areas where their prey often lives. If you're having problems with hunting spiders, we will also treat these areas.

Our treatment process involves de-webbing to get rid of cobwebs. Then, we use a combination of liquid and dust products to eliminate adults. We'll come back a month later to re-treat in order to ensure we get rid of all the eggs and baby spiders that may still be lingering in your home.

In addition to the 30-day follow-up treatment that gets rid of eggs and spiderlings, we like to return to your home once every other month to ensure we keep spiders out. We offer unlimited free reservices, so we will come out as many times as it takes to eliminate your spider problem.
