Mesa Spider Extermination

Spiders are a group of arachnids who have proven themselves capable of adapting to and thriving in virtually any environment. According to the National Pest Management Association, there are roughly 3,000 species of spiders in North America, but only two of those species—the brown recluse spider or the black widow spider—are poisonous and capable of being a serious health and safety threat. Unfortunately, both the brown recluse and the black widow spider can be found in Arizona. Presence in your home requires spider extermination and removal to prevent these painful bites.

Spiders typically enter homes and workplaces through faulty door and window seals, and may move indoors while searching for food, water, or moisture. Because spiders are insects of prey, finding spiders inside your home is often an indicator of other insect infestations. Spiders may also be accidentally introduced into homes on infested plants, firewood, clothing, furniture, and other items.

Common Types of Spiders

Over 40,000 species of spiders have been categorized throughout the world, but only 3,000 have been found within the United States. Roughly 25 species of spiders can be found commonly infesting homes and other buildings throughout Arizona, including brown recluse spiders and black widow spiders. Other common types of spiders include tarantulas, jumping spiders, banded spiders, garden spiders, beach wolf spiders, Carolina wolf spiders, daddy long-legs, marbled cellar spiders, house spiders, crab spiders, western spotted orb weavers, regal jumping spiders, lynx spiders, cobweb spiders, and more.

Health Risks of Spider Bites

Spiders can be disease carriers, and spider bites can cause infection and swelling. Black Widow spiders carry venom that can be up to 15 times as potent as a rattlesnake’s venom, and and can cause nausea, fatigue, dull muscle aches, and breathing difficulties. Brown Recluse spider bites can cause restlessness, fever, nausea, sleep disturbances, and open ulcers. Nearly all spiders produce unsightly elastic silk webs that trap insects, dust, and more. Spider bites can be a risk to the elderly, small children, or pregnant women.

What Spiders Look Like

Spiders can range from an eighth of an inch to 3 inches long. Many species of spiders are common household pests, and are perhaps most recognizable for having 8 legs. While many spiders spin and weave webs to trap insects as prey, not all spiders spin webs. Some spiders prefer humid, moist locations, while other spiders thrive in dry, warm places. Spiders often hide in dark areas and in cracks, and are commonly found in upper corners of rooms, air ducts, and attics.

Spider Prevention

Removing clutter from yards, attics, and crawl spaces through proper storage in sealed containers will reduce the risk of spider and other pest infestations. Since spiders are pests of prey, exterminating other insects with preventative insecticide treatments will reduce spider infestation risks by cutting off their food sources.
