How To Treat For Spiders In Concord, NC


Spiders inside the homes bring about anxiety to homeowners.  And you may not know it, but it is said that you are always within three feet of a spider inside your house. The thing about spiders is that they are generally peaceful. They do not attack and they bite only when they feel threatened. However, we do not know when spiders feel threatened by us. We might simply accidentally walk into them. Or they may be hiding in your closet where you usually pick out your clothes. The thing is, that spider may be venomous.

When spiders infest your homes, you may want to call the pest experts in Concord NC, Lake Norman Home Services Company. A spider infestation problem is not a problem for Lake Norman Home Services. And the reason why you may have to call them instead of getting rid of spiders yourself is that some species of spiders are venomous.

The Venomous Spider Species

In the United States, there are two common types of venomous spiders: the black widow, and the brown recluse spiders.  

  • Black Widow Spider - The black widow spider got its name because of the fact that most of the time, the female black widow spiders eat their mates after mating.  Humans also find them fearsome, since the black widow venom is actually 15 times more potent than a rattlesnake. Their bites are not fatal to humans, however. When bitten, seek care from your healthcare provider. If you can still catch the black widow spider that bit you, do so and show it to your healthcare provider so you can get the appropriate treatment.  Black widow spiders are identified by their hourglass-shaped colored marks found on their abdomen.
  • Brown Recluse Spider - The only other venomous spider in the United States is the brown recluse spider. They are identified by their unusual six eyes instead of the eight eyes most spiders have. Their bites are painful but not fatal. If ever you run into a brown recluse and it bites you, apply an ice pack on the bitten area and seek medical attention immediately.  If you can, bring the spider with you so that the doctors will know that it was a black recluse spider that bit you, and appropriate care will be given
