Venomous spider activity is on the rise….
Most of us are aware of the Black Widow spider. In Charlotte, Lee and Sarasota counties the more common venomous spider is the Brown Widow.
For the last month or two, our technicians have been identifying more of these awful spiders at our customers homes. At Problem Solved Pest Control there are not too many insects that we deal with that are actually hazardous to our health, so this one gets our attention.
Part of our technician training involves identifying and treating these spiders properly. Here’s what we look for to ensure our safety and yours.
There is some good news….
Widow spiders do not live indoors. The cooler temperatures and lack of humidity will not allow them to survive inside. We find them in garages and on patios most often. If your technician identifies these venomous spiders they will immediately notify you so that you can stay as safe as possible. Unfortunately there is no preventative spider treatments available so we stay on the lookout.
