Professional Spider Pest Control Houston TX
The spider is a member of the “Araneae” order and “Arachnida” class. Spiders have between 6 and 8 eyes, 3 sets of legs, mouthparts “palps”, and furry bodies. Scientists have identified over 40,000 species, a mixture of venomous and non-venomous species. What makes the spider so unique is its fangs and spinnerets. The fangs, needle-like projections, are utilized to inject venom into the spider’s prey. The tip of each fang is sharp to allow quick and easy penetration into the victim’s skin.
The spinneret plays a major role in the life of the spider and Embioptera. The spinneret can be found on the spider’s abdomen. It creates smooth, soft silk for webs. The adult spider has amazing web-making skills that take about 60 minutes to complete. Spider webs are durable enough to capture and trap decent-sized frogs, lizards, and birds.
In controlled environments, spiders can live up to 25 years. Spiders do not have live births, but instead, tiny white eggs. The female arachnid deposits her eggs inside burrows, underneath piles of firewood and lumber, between rock formations, and on leaves. To protect her eggs from predators and the elements, the female places her eggs inside small homespun sacs.
Why Are Spiders Living In My Crawlspace?
Spiders are classified as “occasional invaders,” a pest that randomly invades residential and commercial establishments. The majority of Houston spider sightings involve the adult male. After mating, the adult male spider seeks refuge in a damp, cool, safe, and discrete hiding place. More often than not, the male finds itself seeking refuge in basements, crawlspaces, saunas, and bathrooms. The pest can also be found hiding underneath kitchen and bathroom sinks. Any suitable environment can become a spider refuge
Do Spiders Pose A Danger To Children And Pets?
It depends on the species. Non-venomous and venomous spiders pose a danger to humans of all ages. However, venomous spiders are more dangerous than non-venomous spiders. Animals tend to have a stronger immunity to spider bites than humans. Skunk, hedgehog, pig, and ground squirrel have extremely strong immune systems. In fact, these animals are not impacted by venomous and non-venomous spider bites.
Experts believe 99 percent of spiders do not pose a danger to humans or animals. Venomous spider bites have been linked to localized skin infections, which when left untreated can cause necrosis, dead tissue. In severe cases, victims may experience acute systemic toxicity, a condition that impacts the patient’s entire system.
What Is The Safest And Most Effective Spider Management Solution?
There are two primary spider control strategies – do-it-yourself and professional. Do-it-yourself spider management relies on an over-the-counter spider bait. Professional spider management, on the other hand, utilizes an industrial-grade spider bait. Both treatment options have pros and cons, with the latter being the more potent option.
Our professional spider control combines industrial-strength toxins and glue traps to deliver maximum results. We believe Houston consumers appreciate the efficiency and effectiveness of our industrial-grade spider treatments.
Do Spider Baits Pose Environmental Risks?
Yes and no, as it depends on the application process. Spider extermination applications must be applied, utilizing cutting-edge equipment and with safety measures in mind. Our exterminators rely on high-quality sprayers and wands. This is no ordinary sprayer and wand. In addition to the sprayer and wand, we utilize a nozzle with a 90-degree tip to ensure direct contact with minimal exposure risks.
Our pest control product line is comprised of brands that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA-approved spider bait has been deemed “safe” when the manufacturer’s directions are followed to a tee.
How Do Houston Residents Submit A Spider Control Service Request?
We have three customer support contact options – email, social media, and phone. All of these options will get you in direct contact with a member of our Houston customer support team. Every service request must be processed by our Houston customer support.
The process can take up to 48 hours in most cases. We highly recommend immediate action upon the detection of spiders. A member of the customer support team will dispatch a pest control expert to your Houston home or business upon the completion of your service request.
What Is The Most Effective Pest Management Solution?
As mentioned previously, Houston consumers have two options when it comes to eradicating spiders. DIY spider baits are effective in eradicating a few spiders. However, these pest control products are ineffective in treatment spider colonies. There are solitary and social spiders. Solitary spiders colonize in groups of hundreds or thousands. The social spider travels lives and feeds alone.
We highly recommend decluttering attics and other storage areas. Spiders are drawn to damp, dark, and cool environments, such as those found in crawlspaces and basements. To deter spiders from targeting your home, the installation of dehumidifiers and/or vents is a must. The combination of both options will ensure the best outcome, resulting in almost instantly lower humidity levels in problem areas.
Sealing all entry points that lead from the exterior to the interior of your home should be done immediately. Small openings can simply be sealed with caulk that comes in a tube. Small dabs are ideal for smaller entry points. Medium- and large-sized access points need a more aggressive approach. Foam insulation, stainless steel dish scrubber, and metal sheeting cut-to-fit are more suitable for medium and large openings.
Are Brown Recluse Spider Sightings In Houston Legitimate?
The brown recluse “Loxosceles reclusa” spider has reportedly been detected in the City of Houston. Are these sightings real? Experts seem to believe they are real because some are backed up with images. The brown recluse spider is one of the most poisonous species of its kind. Another poisonous spider species is the “Latrodectus mactans,” black widow.
