Spider control in California is key. That is because the biggest spider threat in California is the Black Widow, which is found in abundance throughout Southern California. When you find a black widow or other potentially harmful spider in your home, it is in your best interest to call a spider pest control expert. The chances you are dealing with the cute children’s book character the itsy bitsy spider are highly unlikely. Black Widows can be deadly.
Adult females can reach an overall length of 1.5″ and are black with a reddish hour glass design on the underside of their abdomens. Female Black Widows are larger than their male counterparts. A single bite of a female Black Widow can severely weaken the nerves and the brain, leading to difficulty in breathing, body aches and nausea. Therefore, taking the risk of trying to handle spider pest control on your own is not a good idea in this situation. However, given the wide spread nature and danger the Black Widow can cause, it is best to play it safe and not sorry.
Even if you do not have a Black Widow present, that does not mean you may have a non-venomous spider control issue. The presence of a large population of spiders can indicate that there is a bigger insect issue you are facing. In addition, spiders themselves can cause their own set of frustrations. This includes things from walking into spider webs to the presence of having insects that carry disease scurrying to and fro. In general, having a spider control issue is not a positive thing, and it can be a sign of a bigger problem with your structure or other insects. That is why you should let a professional do the job of spider control for you.
Too often, when homeowners try to solve spider pest control issues on their own, they fail to address the main issues to stop the spread. This includes not closing up openings where spiders can enter, not eliminating spider food sources such as other insects, failing to keep debris like plants and trees from touching the house, and not clearing spider webs from all locations. Therefore, when trying spider extermination on your own, you may kill the spiders, but not ensure they do not return.
