Spiders may be unwelcome guests in your home, but here at Aruza we’re somewhat of the arachnid aficionados and pest control experts, we’re here to assure you that these creatures, while possibly a bit unnerving, are generally harmless.
However, if your house is starting to look like a cave from an Indiana Jones film, it may be time to consider taking action.
Arachnids - the family to which spiders belong - come with a standard eight-leg package and no antennae. With more than 45,000 known species, spiders are as diverse as they are ubiquitous. As predators, they help control insect populations by including them in their daily menu. Most spiders are opportunistic hunters, building webs that trap unsuspecting prey that may crawl or fly into them. In fact, certain species of spiders such as the black widow have curiously strong webs; in terms of weight, their webs are actually stronger than steel.
While they may have a superhero and a few horror movies to their name, spiders are usually more of a nuisance than a nightmare. They can fill your house with cobwebs and give you an occasional jump scare, but most species pose little to no threat to humans. Only a select few have venom potent enough to cause harm. Fortunately, bites from these spiders are incredibly rare and don’t always contain venom - these are known as dry bites.
The good news for you though is that even if you are envenomated, hospitals and doctors are well equipped to deal with dangerous spider bites and you’re usually discharged feeling well in no time.
Identify Your Eight-Legged Visitor: With thousands of spider species, knowing what you're dealing with can significantly help inform (and prepare) your removal strategy.
Block Entry Points: Think of spiders as unwanted guests sneaking in through the back door. Locate any potential access points, like small cracks and gaps, and seal them with caulk or weather stripping. But bear in mind, they could very easily sneak in when you open a door or window.
Eliminate Food Sources: Spiders, like us, need food. So, maintaining a clean environment with no accessible food sources such as pet food, crumbs, or trash can discourage spiders from taking up residence.
Set Spider Traps: Depending on your arachnid intruder's species, various traps are available. Make sure you're choosing the right tool for the job.
Call in the Experts: If there’s enough spider silk in your home to set up a clothing factory, it may be time to call a professional exterminator. While there are some in-store products that can treat spiders, it’s best to call the professionals as these chemicals may be harmful to you and your loved ones. A professional will best help you to determine the severity and solution of the infestation.
Aruza proudly provides spider pest control to Charlotte NC, Greensboro NC, Greenville SC, Charleston SC, Greenville SC, Raleigh NC, and Orlando FL.
If you're looking to eliminate spiders, consider reducing food and water sources that may attract them. Sealing up any small cracks or holes in your home can prevent spiders from entering. Insecticidal sprays or powders can be effective, but they must be used with care due to their potential harm to humans and pets. For severe spider infestations, contacting a professional pest control service is the safest and most advisable solution.
As predators, spiders primarily feed on insects like flies, mosquitoes, and moths, as well as other spiders. They capture their prey using their webs and immobilize them with injected venom. Subsequently, they consume the prey by sucking out the body fluids. Some tarantulas are actually so big that they will feed on small birds and even some reptiles or amphibians.
Spiders construct their webs from silk produced in their spinnerets. The silk, a strong and sticky substance composed of proteins, serves multiple functions for spiders, including catching prey, providing protection against predators, and housing their nests. Some spider silk, such as the Black Widows’, is stronger than steel in terms of weight.
The world is home to over 45,000 diverse spider species, found in nearly every environment. Common types include the harmless house spider, typically small and brown, the larger garden spider with a unique zigzag web, and the impressive tarantula, found in tropical regions. Though tarantulas can bite if threatened, they are generally not dangerous to humans.
Spiders are generally not harmful to humans, but a few species like the black widow, brown recluse, and - the world’s most venomous: Sydney funnel-web spider (native to Australia) can deliver bites that may lead to serious illness. Despite their scary reputation, most spiders are harmless and can even be beneficial by controlling pest populations.
