Learn about the Types of Spiders
There are many varieties of spiders. What kind do you have?
Over the years we here at Western Exterminator have become the experts in spider control. We have heard all of the myths that about spiders, the primary one being that certain species are deadly. There is also a misconception that spiders seem to seek out people in order to bite them.
The fact is that most of this is myth. Yes, spiders will bite people, but generally speaking it’s the last thing they want to do. A human presents more of a danger to spiders than spiders do to the human. Spiders use their fangs and venom to feed and a spider is just not interested in eating a human.
Still, homeowners come to us for reliable, dependable, spider pest control because people fear spiders or arachnophobia. Plus, webs hanging around your home don’t look very attractive, no matter how many insects the spiders are eating.
Finally, there are spiders that inject venom that could be harmful to humans, such as the bite from black widow spiders. Although seldom fatal, bites from these eight-legged arthropods should be taken seriously and medical attention sought.
