Spiders are regularly found in our area, so you won’t be able to avoid them forever. You cannot ignore these pests because some of them are incredibly dangerous. Most people have heard about the risks associated with brown recluse spiders. All spiders are arthropods with eight legs and either six or eight eyes. Over the years, spiders have identified at least 40,000 unique spider species. One unique thing about spiders is that these pests build webs. They release silk from their abdomens and use the silk to build webs. Once they’ve done this, their webs will trap insects and other spiders. Some of the biggest spider species in the world will kill lizards and birds.
Thankfully, you’re not going to see those spiders in our area. Most spiders reside alone, but some reside in communal webs. When they do, they can live alongside 50,000 other spiders. On average, spiders in the wild live up to two years. When they reside in protected environments, they commonly live up to 25 years or longer. While adult females are larger, they have smaller mouthparts. Male spiders tend to enter residential structures more frequently.
How Dangerous Are Spiders?
Spiders could indeed be dangerous, but not all of them are. Spiders tend to bite when defending themselves. If they feel threatened by someone, they will not hesitate to bite. The good news is that most spider bites will be harmless. Still, there is a slim chance that the bite is going to lead to serious issues such as systemic toxicity, necrotic wounds, and death. Spiders can and will inject venom into their victims, so the risks are high.
Reasons For Spider Infestations
Dealing With Spiders & Hiring An Exterminator
Ultimately, it isn’t going to be easy to deal with spiders. Most people are afraid to do so because they’re worried about being bit. When administering the chemical spray, there is a risk that you’re going to be attacked. Therefore, you need to proceed with extreme caution. We think it is best to let a professional fix the infestation for you. Properly seal your exterior walls to prevent them from entering. You’ll also need to remove debris around your property. Either way, we think it is best to hire an exterminator.
