Tis the season

Be on the lookout for more spiders! Spiders can be nasty pests to get rid of. This time of year is when they will start to look for a new home for the winter. They like to hide in warm places so they can hatch their eggs just in time for the warmer weather.

You should be particularly aware of poisonous spiders. Black widows and brown recluses have benefitted this year by the extra days of warmth in the spring and now the fall. They will probably have a higher population this year. However, they are rare, few and far between, but they are in fact out there. Spiders can hide in the kitchen, in the toilets and even under your bed.

Spiders in general typically are docile insects, but their bites can sting as badly as a bee sting. Black widows and brown recluse however have a very venomous bite that can do some major harm to young children and the elderly. They like to hide in basements, garages and storage sheds. Places you don’t frequent often. They are also very territorial and will lose their docile attitudes if they feel you are attacking their home.

If you think you may have a black widow or brown recluse problem in your home, make sure you call a local pest control company to address the situation.
