Hello and welcome to our company blog! In this post, we want to share with you some of the challenges and problems that we face when dealing with spiders.
Spiders are a common pest that can cause a lot of trouble for homeowners and businesses. They can also pose a health risk if they bite you or your pets. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional pest control service like Extra Mile Pest Control to get rid of them.
Spiders are arachnids, which means they have eight legs and no antennae. They belong to a large group of animals that includes scorpions, mites and ticks. There are thousands of different species of spiders in the world, but only a few of them are dangerous to humans. The most common spiders that we encounter in South Florida are:
– Jumping spiders: These are small, hairy spiders that can jump up to 50 times their body length. They have excellent eyesight and can see in color. They are usually harmless, but some people may be allergic to their venom.
– Crab spiders: These are spiders that resemble crabs, with their front legs longer than the others. They can change their color to match their surroundings. They ambush their prey by waiting on flowers or leaves. They rarely bite humans, but their venom can cause pain and swelling.
– Golden silk spiders: These are large, yellow spiders that weave golden webs in trees or shrubs. They are also known as banana spiders or calico spiders. They are not aggressive, but they will bite if provoked. Their venom is mild and usually causes only redness and itching.
– Orb weavers: These are spiders that spin circular webs with a spiral pattern. They come in various shapes, sizes and colors. Some of them have distinctive markings, such as the black and yellow garden spider or the spiny-backed orb weaver. They are not harmful to humans, but they can be a nuisance if they build their webs near doors or windows.
– Wolf spiders: These are large, hairy spiders that hunt on the ground. They have good eyesight and can run fast. They do not make webs, but they may dig burrows or hide under rocks or debris. They are not aggressive, but they will bite if threatened. Their venom is not dangerous, but it can cause pain, swelling and infection.
The only two venomous spiders that you need to worry about in Florida are the brown recluse and the black widow. These spiders are very rare and usually hide in dark, secluded places. They only bite when they feel threatened or disturbed. Their bites can cause serious symptoms, such as fever, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting and necrosis (tissue death). If you suspect that you have been bitten by one of these spiders, seek medical attention immediately.
The best way to prevent spider infestation is to keep your home and property clean and clutter-free. Spiders like to hide in cracks, crevices, corners and other dark places. You can reduce their hiding spots by sealing any gaps or holes in your walls, floors, doors or windows. You can also remove any debris, vegetation or trash that may attract them.
If you already have a spider problem, you need to act fast before it gets worse. Spiders can reproduce quickly and lay hundreds of eggs at a time. You may not see them until they hatch and start crawling around your house.
