How to get rid of spiders

 

Spiders are as familiar and well known to most people as they are disliked.  Spiders scare a lot of people (usually this is unnecessary).  A few spider species have venom that is dangerous to people, but spider bites are actually pretty rare.  Spiders have two body segments, the abdomen and the cephalothoraxes.  The first, or front part, is the cephalothorax, which is formed by the fusing of the head and thorax, according to  Jo-Anne Nina Sewlal , an archaeologist at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad.  The cephalothorax contains the eyes, mouth and legs.

Webs:  All spiders produce silk, a thin, strong protein strand extruded by the spider from spinnerets most commonly found on the end of the abdomen.  Many species use it to trap insects in webs, although there are many species that hunt freely.

Truly Green Pest Control, will remove spider webs and service the outside of your home. We will use spot treatments and dust to eliminate spiders.  Dust is used to attach to spiders as they crawl through it that will give long lasting results.

Although we will remove the spider webs, it is important that you keep up on removing webs to prevent spiders from harboraging. Nothing takes the place of good housekeeping.

Webbing and dusting is the best way to get rid of spiders. Spiders suspend in webs and not suseptible to traditional pesticides due to the fact they may not contact the spray.

BLACK WIDOW

Widow spiders generally do not infest homes but prefer dark, close quarters outdoors such as woodpiles or crevices under rocks.  Indoors they are found in quiet locations such as basements, crawl spaces, and attics typically nesting in narrow gaps between the wall and a stored box or other object.  Widow spiders are well known for their potentially dangerous bite.  Widows have potent venom, which contains the neurotoxin alpha-latrotoxin that causes adverse reactions in their victims.  All this mean is...you better get an exterminator!

 


BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER

Brown recluse is a light dark brown to tan in color with a violin  shaped dark brown mark starting at the front of the spider with the neck of the violin pointing towards the rear. They are reclusive by nature.. They prefer to live in undisturbed, seldom used areas such as boxes, underneath tables and chairs, along baseboards, in closets, attics, crawlspaces, and basements. Outside they live around rocks, logs, woodpiles,  in utility boxes, exterior rodent bait stations and debris.  Brown Recluse spiders are among the most maligned of all spiders.  Brown recluse spiders caught Vetter's attention in 1992, when a woman in California, who lost her arms, legs, and part of her nose to amputation, said she remembered being bitten by a spider.  Brown recluse spider bites usually take 6-8 weeks to heal, but this treatment method should speed the process dramatically, and reduce suffering in the meantime.
