The Ultimate Guide To Effective Spider Control For Elk Grove Homes

When something stains your favorite outfit or a kitchen countertop, you want a product that will remove it. You research and read online reviews hoping to find the product that will effectively remove the stain and restore the shirt or surface to its former glory. When the product arrives, you anxiously apply it and cross your fingers that it works as promised. 

Whether it is a problem to solve or a stain to remove, we want an effective solution. We don't want to invest our time, energy, and money in something that cannot deliver results. The same is true for pest control. If we see spiders in our house, we want something done before someone gets bitten. No one wants to go to bed and hopes a spider doesn't crawl across them while they sleep. 

If you see spiders in your house, you need pest Control in Elk Grove from a local company that has removed spiders in the area since 1978. The staff at our woman-owned company understands why spider bites are a concern and why they strike terror in the hearts of many. When you partner with Bell Pest Control, you link arms with a team driven by a passion for outstanding pest control. 

We understand spiders send shivers down the spine of many, but we know you are reading this article because you need to get rid of spiders in the house. So, please keep reading and learn how to resolve the spider situation effectively. 

Habits And Behaviors Of Common Spiders

Before we examine California common house spiders, we want to learn about spiders. Spiders are arachnids; although they may look like insects, there are differences. Unlike insects, spiders do not have antennae, wings or wing pads, or a body with three segments. Instead, spiders have more legs (eight) and only two parts to their body, the cephalothorax and abdomen. The cephalothorax contains the mouthparts, legs, and eyes, while the spiracles, genitals, and anus are in the abdomen region. Insects usually have a cluster of compound eyes, but spiders have eyes in rows of larger and smaller ones. 

Let's examine the types of spiders in California that are problematic for most homeowners in our area now that we have a grasp on basics spider anatomy:

  • Black widow spider
  • Cellar spider
  • Wolf spider

Some Spiders Are More Dangerous Than Others

Of the spiders previously mentioned, the black widow is the most venomous spider in California. Contrary to popular opinion and the Department of Etymology at the University of California Riverside, the brown recluse, another venomous spider, is not native to California, and "there are no populations of the brown recluse living in California." Although we don't have to contend with brown recluse spiders, we still have black widow spiders, so let's look at what happens should one bite you. 

All spiders have venom glands, but most do not have strong enough mouthparts to bite, except for black widows. A black widow will bite if threatened or squeezed; it is more defensive if it has a silken egg. When a black widow bites, the pain may feel like a pinprick, but it soon increases and may extend to the abdominal muscles. Nausea, vomiting, increased blood pressure, and sweating are other symptoms that last for one to three hours. Pain at the bite site may last for up to three days. Fortunately, no one has died in the United States from a black widow bite in over a decade; however, seek immediate medical attention if you experience these symptoms after a bite.
