The Best Spider Control Company In Winston Salem, NC

February 22, 2019

Spiders are not generally considered as pests. They are known to be peaceful, minding their own business. It is even said that we all live within three feet of a spider; they are in our house, only hidden from our view. They can even be beneficial in that they feed on other pests like ants, cockroaches, flies, and mosquitoes. Sometimes, you would want some spiders in your homes.

These spiders can be classified as pests when they cause harm to humans, and there are many instances when they do. There are actually a few species that can harm humans, even as others as they just 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. However, if they feel threatened by us, they tend to be aggressive, which is just a natural reaction from any animals, including humans. And if they encroach our own personal spaces, then they have to go.

Among the most common types of spiders found in North America are the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider.

The Black Widow Spider

In Winston Salem, black widow spiders are common, and their bites are highly dangerous. It is a medium- sized spider about half an inch long. It is actually reported that a black widow’s venom is 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake’s.

These spiders are active at night and prefer dark places like barns, garages, and outdoor plants. There are some even reported to be inside shoes, so be very vigilant. They tend to keep to itself and they bite only if disturbed.

The Brown Recluse Spider

The brown recluse spider is the only other poisonous spider that is found in the United States. It has a speck of dirt or a sandy brown body with a slightly darker marking at the center of its body. The bite of a brown recluse is painful but is not fatal. Like the black widow spider, 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. If capturing it seems impossible, take a picture of it to show to the doctor.
