Did You Know?
Spiders are not insects but belong to a group called “arachnids” just like scorpions, mites, and ticks (We handle them all!).
It is estimated that there are 25 million tons of spiders in the world and that they kill 400–800 million tons of prey per year.
Make Spiders Outsiders
Not all spiders are itsy-bitsy. Trust Eco-Safe to identify, design, and implement a spider control program that will make sure your home or business is properly protected.
There are 35,000 species of spiders worldwide and about 3,000 species that live in North America.
Brown recluses and black widows are two of the most infamous spiders that are worthy of fear. Their bites can cause serious consequences to people and animals and when they enter a home or business it can be extremely problematic for residents, customers, and employees. Eco-Safe is well equipped to handle any and all spider situations. We offer emergency services when brown recluses or black widows have been seen.
The majority of spiders people come in contact with are completely harmless and do not have the ability to bite humans. Spiders are also an extremely beneficial part of a healthy ecosystem. However, Eco-Safe understands that even though what you are seeing might not be a venomous spider, you do not want to see them in your home or business.
If there is a food source, you will most likely find a spider. If the food source is eliminated, spiders are less likely to inhabit that space. While we have the ability to target spiders inside and around a structure, our general pest control program successfully reduces spider populations by reducing and eliminating all insect populations in and around structures. Up to date weather stripping and good seals are also great ways to prevent spiders from entering structures. On rare occasions, spiders can infest an indoor location. When that happens, we offer specialized spider services.
Like the black widow spider, the brown recluse spider bites in defense. Bites are often painful and can produce an open, ulcerating sore that requires medical treatment. Restlessness, fever and difficulty sleeping are common symptoms of a brown recluse spider bite.
While male black widow spiders rarely bite, females are known to be aggressive and bite in defense, especially when guarding eggs. Symptoms of a black widow bite include fever, increased blood pressure, sweating and nausea.
One of the most well-known hunting spiders are wolf spiders, which actively search for prey. They live in significant numbers around homes and businesses. Once inside, wolf spiders typically stay at or near floor level, especially along walls and under furniture.
The most recognized web building spiders are cellar spiders, which love dark and damp spaces, though they can be found in corners almost everywhere. While cellar spiders are completely harmless, we know most people do not want to see them in their property.
There are 3,000 species of spiders living in the United States. The brown widow, orb weaving spider, huntsman spider, and tarantulas are a few of many spiders you might come across. You can trust Eco-Safe to help you with effective and safe spider control of all kinds.
