New Jersey Spider Control and Extermination
Spiders have a rather infamous image. Most people hate the sight of them, and many will do their best to rid their home or business of these pesky insects. Spiders, however, can actually be good for the surrounding environment, as they eat other nuisance insects like mosquitoes and flies. A spider population can easily get out of control, as females lay nearly 400 eggs at a time. To protect your home or business from spiders in New Jersey, you need to learn about the behavior of this pest, take steps for prevention, and find effective treatment options should an infestation occur.
Understanding How Spiders Move
Spiders will move randomly throughout a building space to find the ideal location for their web. This process leaves a bunch of unused webs behind.
New Jersey pest control experts at Viking Pest explain the ideal location a spider will often rest on are basements, garages, closets, window frames, and the upper corners of rooms. These are exposed to air currents that bring in constant prey to their web.
Once settled, females will lay multiple egg sacs, making it hard to curb their population once they settle in.
When you Should Be Cautious of Spiders
Most spiders are harmless and pose no threat to humans, but there are some that can be dangerous.
The Black Widow and Brown Recluse spider are also found in New Jersey, and it is suggested you schedule an appointment with Viking to ensure your home or business is protected from an infestation.
Viking Pest’s certified entomologist, Craig, explains the Black Widow is identified by its striking red, hourglass-shaped patch on its black body. Seeing these spiders on multiple webs in your home requires immediate action, as its bite contains a neurotoxin that demands medical attention.
Brown Recluse, while less common, can be found during the summer months in New Jersey. Their plain brown body is less noticeable than the Black Widow, but it does have a poisonous bite, so make sure you call professionals to deal with this infestation and don’t risk being bit.
