Males typically live much shorter lives than females because many die from mating or are eaten after mating with females.

Are Spiders Dangerous?

A famous spider expert Norman Platnick said “Wherever you sit as you read these lines, a spider is probably no more than a few yards away”. Regardless of whether this is fact or fiction the thought of lots of spiders in your house gives most people the creeps!

Are spiders in the Mid-Atlantic dangerous?

The brown recluse and black widow are found in Maryland, Virginia, DC and West Virginia and are very dangerous. Black widow spiders have a large red hourglass-shaped marking visible on their abdomen. The brown recluse has a violin-shaped marking on top of its thorax.  These spiders deliver bites that require immediate medical treatment. If you suspect either of these two spiders are in your home call us immediately.

How can I prevent spider infestations?

Inspect for a and seal screens and cracks under doors, windows, siding and other openings.  Eliminate their food source by exterminating insects. Use caution when transporting boxes, plants, firewood, clothing and other items stored in garages, attics and basements to an inside location.  If you see spider egg sacs vacuum them up and take it outside promptly.

Does DIY spider control work? 

In some cases. Most sprays that may work on insects won’t work for spider control. Spiders hang out in elevated webs, not on surfaces where they could readily pick up sprayed pesticides. Sticky traps may work on small infestations if you use plenty of them and they are strategically placed.

When should I call a spider exterminator?

Not every homeowner wants to inspect all of dark corners in attics-basements-crawl spaces and under rooflines to take on a spider infestation.  Sometimes a handful of spiders around your house may explode to a much larger number. After all, spiders can lay up to 200 eggs in each egg sac. If you  suspect you have black widows or brown recluse spiders call us immediately.
