Spider control FAQ’s
What are common spider habits?
There are around 3,000 known species of spiders that exist throughout North America, and the south is home to quite a few of them. This is because spiders are attracted to heat and damp or dark areas.
Therefore they are commonly found in:
- Crawl spaces
- Sub-floor air vents
- Upper corners or rooms
What can I do to help prevent spiders?
The good news about spiders is that they tend to prefer staying outdoors unless your property provides a heat or food source for them. Therefore, you’re more likely to encounter infestations in your yard, especially if you have bushes, plants, or trees. In order to discourage such pests from entering your home, our Springdale, AR spider control specialists recommend keeping any landscaping away from the exterior of your home.
Other spider prevention tips include:
- Seal any cracks in doors, windows, or your foundation
- Keep an eye on humidity levels within your attic and basement
- Eliminate any wood piles or debris accumulating near the side of your home
Are brown recluse spiders dangerous?
The brown recluse spider, also known as the fiddleback spider, is one of two venomous spiders in the Ozarks. These spiders can live up to 2 years, and range in size from .6 cm to 2 cm. While not a large spider, just the words ‘brown recluse’ strike fear into those who have been bitten or know someone who has been bitten and had an adverse reaction.
The brown recluse is not an aggressive spider and tends to hide in mostly undisturbed areas, hence the recluse part of its name. Its venom is hemotoxic, but the majority of bites do not result in any symptoms. Even so, there are those who have severe reactions, which can include vomiting, fever, rashes, necrosis, organ damage, and even death.
Where do brown recluse spiders like to live?
Brown recluse spiders are native to Arkansas and can often be found both in and outside homes. When outside, these spiders can be found in woodpiles and debris. Inside the house, they favor places like cardboard because it mimics rotting wood. They also reside in clothing, shoes, boxes, bedding, and storage areas. If you believe you have a brown recluse infestation, reach out to our Springdale exterminators.
What attracts brown recluse spiders?
The brown recluse is a hunter spider and is attracted to food. Their primary source of food is small bugs. If you have small insects such as cockroaches, flies, moths, and crickets, it’s best to get regular pest control so you don’t invite more unwanted guests. And because they’re nocturnal predators, brown recluses are also drawn to dark spaces.
Spiders & Your Health
While many people think that all spiders can bite them and cause serious health issues, there are only a few whose bites are venomous. The most common of these two are the brown recluse and black widow spiders. If you or a loved one has been bitten, you will need to seek immediate medical attention.
Additionally, because spiders feed on other insects, some of which carry disease, their presence can increase or indicate the presence of such pests.
