Professional Spider Pest Control Syracuse NY
The venomous spider is one of the most dangerous insects on Earth. The arthropod belongs to the “Araneae” order that is characterized by having up to 8 eyes, 6 legs, unique mouthparts, with fangs. There are non-venomous and venomous spiders, with the latter being the more dangerous for humans and animals.
Scientists have reportedly identified up to 40,000 spider species – American house, brown recluse, wolf, black widow, and daddy longlegs. Humans struggle with just the thought of sharing their homes with these unappealing creatures. Just imagine what they do when an exterminator tells them their homes are infested with one or more Aranea arthropods.
The spider has unique physical characteristics that allow it to create homespun webs. The arthropod utilizes its web-making capabilities for trapping its prey. The spider web is extremely durable. Evidence shows the spider nest is powerful enough to trap small rodents, amphibians, birds, and insects.
Spiders have unique mouthparts that are utilized to inject venom into the bloodstream of humans and animals. Fortunately, most species of spiders are harmless, but experts still recommend treating all arthropods as if they are venomous.
The adult spider has a lifespan of up to 25 years in controlled habitats and up to 2 years in their natural habitats. The adult female is the larger of the two genders, while the adult male is more likely to infiltrate human living spaces.
Are Venomous Spider Bites Life-Threatening?
Venomous spider bites can be life-threatening when left untreated. Fortunately, scientists claim only one percent of spiders are harmful to humans. Venomous spider bite almost always needs immediate medical intervention. The problem with spiders, only a few humans can differentiate between venomous and non-venomous species.
Venomous spider bites may cause skin infection, resulting in necrosis or dying human tissues. Non-venomous spider bites cause mild to moderate and sometimes severe allergic reactions. Mild cases report minor redness, itchiness, and swelling, which may or may not be accompanied by a pinpoint-sized pustule.
When spiders inject their fangs into the skin of humans and animals, they are trying to inflict pain and suffering. Moderate to severe allergic reactions associated with spider bites should be treated accordingly. This is especially true for victims who cannot identify the species of spider responsible for biting them.
Why Does My Syracuse Home Have Spiders?
Spiders are like most species of insects, they do not discriminate between humans and properties. Homes with vulnerable structural components are at a higher risk of being infiltrated by spiders. If you or another occupant of the home witnessed a spider encounter, the infiltration can be contributed to a vulnerable pest barrier. Pest barriers are structural components responsible for keeping rodents, wild animals, insects, and arthropods out.

Professional spider management has been deemed efficient and effective. When compared to do-it-yourself treatments, our professional spider control is guaranteed effective.

Yes, non-venomous spiders are less likely to cause problems following home infiltration. Arachnids are generally not looking for trouble when invading commercial and residential establishments. In fact, most spider infiltration cases are deemed “accidental.” Of course, there is no way to make this determination without a visual inspection.
Does Spider Bait Contain Environmentally Unfriendly Ingredients?
The ingredients found in chemical-based spider bait do pose some environmental risks. Fortunately, it is possible to minimize these risks by opting for pesticide brands only approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Most exterminators opt for pyrethrin-based spider bait products. While these are proven effective time and time again, they can be dangerous when improperly handled and administered.
EPA agents partner with the top New York manufacturers to provide consumers with environmentally-friendly pesticide options. We firmly believe, EPA-approved pesticides are not only safer but also more potent and pure.
