While spiders can most definitely be a beneficial pest to have in the home, due to the fact that they will eat the other pests, is there an off-chance that the spiders you’re avoiding, are actually harmful? Well, it really depends on where you’re seeing the activity. If it’s indoors you’re most likely dealing with harmless spiders. If it’s outdoors, there is a greater chance it’s a harmful, poisonous spider. Other factors come in to play of course so the best way to determine what type of spider you are actually dealing with is by having our Tamarac spider control technicians come to your property and inspect the issue.
Black Widow Control
If you come across a black widow in your home you should proceed with caution when trying to eliminate it. It’s not very common to find them inside because they’re typically discovered outside in wood piles, dark sheds, enclosed structures, garages, etc. When they are discovered in a home or property it’s typically a dark closet, the basement or attic. They prefer sheltered areas that are hidden. Black widows will eat many other insects and bugs; flies, grasshoppers, beetles, mosquitoes, woodlice, caterpillars and other spiders.
