Just the mere mention of a spider sends some people scrambling. The arthropod’s furry body, poisonous fangs, eight beady eyes, and eight elbow-shaped legs are unappealing, in the least. There are around 50,000 species of spider found all over the world. While all spider species are venomous, some more so than others. When you consider this tidbit, it is understandable why the mere sight of a spider is terrifying.
The spider is a unique pest, with its silk-producing capabilities. The silk is utilized to create predator traps known as webs. A spider web can be as small as a DVD disc or as large as a monster wheel. The spider web serves as traps for predators and nonpredators, such as birds, frogs, lizards, insects, and other spiders. The international medical community is working on several applications for spider silk. Researchers extract proteins from the silk to be utilized in medical interventions to regenerate nerves and bone tissue.
In protective environments, spiders have a long lifespan of up to 25 years. The species consist of both males and females, with the latter being the larger of the genders.
Are Humans In Danger Around Spiders?
As previously mentioned, all species of spiders are venomous. However, entomologists believe the spider is nothing more than a pest. Of the nearly 3,000 spider species in North America, only two are classified as dangerous to all humans. These include the brown recluse and black widow spider species.
Why Are Spiders In My Attic?
Spiders are drawn to specific environments, such as areas where humidity levels result in moisture buildup. Warm, dark, and humid are three environmental conditions spiders are drawn to.
What Is an Effective Spider Treatment?
Professional pest management is highly recommended for large spider populations. Traps and insecticides are combined with regular home inspections to eradicate spiders indoors and around the exterior of a home.
Larger spider populations may require a custom pest control strategy. Custom pest control can specifically target spiders more effectively than do-it-yourself treatments.
Are Spider Insecticides Dangerous?
Yes, when mishandled, improperly stored, and misused. Over-the-counter spider pesticides are standard grade, which means they are designed to protect the environment in all situations.
Our pest control strategies heed the pesticide regulations by the US Environmental Protection Agency “EPA.” Our technicians are skilled, with years of experience in the pest control industry.

What Is An Effective Spider Prevention Strategy?
There are several things you can do to prevent spiders from accessing your home or business. Starting in the basement or crawlspace, seal off all access points into your home. Utilize waterproof caulk, foam insulation, or metal screen to seal small- to medium-sized openings. A bigger initiative will be required to seal large holes and gaps.
Should I Worry About Brown Recluse Spiders?
Brown recluse spiders are scattered throughout the United States. Sightings have been reported in Oklahoma, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas.
Most spider species are shy, so they will not challenge you during an encounter. You can expect the spider to run in the opposite direction. However, safety should always be your primary goal when dealing with all spider species.
Our pest control company offers free home inspections for spiders.
