Spider Control For Lexington, North Carolina


Lexington, North Carolina is a city located in the Piedmont Triad Region. Its economy specializes in manufacturing, health care social services, and construction, and it has a population of around 19,000. Its spider count, though, is much more than that, as Lexington’s weather is just what the black widow and the brown recluse spiders love – a humid subtropical climate.

Interesting Facts About Spiders

Generally, spiders are beneficial to the environment since they control other pests, like cockroaches, flies, bugs, and other insects. Here in Lexington, however, some of the spiders are not your friendly neighborhood types. They can be real threats to homeowners and businesses alike.  

Spiders Are Generally Peaceful

Most spiders are not venomous.  Only a few species can harm humans as spiders tend to keep to themselves.  They usually just stay in one corner of your house, not wanting to be disturbed, and not wanting to disturb us.  They do set up unsightly cobwebs which in itself gives the spiders a bad reputation.

Still, those cobwebs enable them to catch flies and other insects, which in turn, is beneficial to us:

  • The Black Widow Spider: In Lexington, black widow spiders are common and are known to be venomous.  It is reported that a black widow’s venom is 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake’s.  Fortunately, their bites are not usually fatal. That being said, they still can cause harm to humans.
  • The Brown Recluse Spider: The brown recluse spider is the only other poisonous spider that is found in the United States.  Like the black widow’s, the brown recluse’s bite is painful but rarely is it fatal. It tends to keep to itself, but when disturbed it can be harmful.  If bitten, place an ice pack on the bitten area and seek prompt medical care. If the spider can be captured, do so and put it in a container. The spider should be brought to the hospital along with the patient.
