Quick Facts On Spider Infestation In Your Home


One of the most common pests at home is the spider. You literally cannot go two feet without one being in the corner in most cases. There are other people who do not consider spiders as pests. Rather, they are considered as pets. They are people all around the world who collect spiders for leisure. Others make a profit out of a breeding of spiders and selling them into the market. Rightfully so, some spiders are beneficial at home because they help ward off mosquitoes and other harmful creatures.  

But some species can be very harmful too, especially when you have children at home. Out of all the thousands of species, two of the most venomous spiders are found in the United States, namely: The Brown Recluse Spider and the Black Widow. For most of us who are not experts about arachnoids, we can never be too careful. Especially if you have arachnophobia, you will need help in exterminating these insects from your home.

What Is Arachnophobia?

From the term itself, arachnophobia is the fear of the family of arachnoids, including spiders. But this is not the typical form of fear. Phobia means irrational and excessive fear over something. By the thought of spiders, people with arachnophobia experiences panic attacks, sweating, rapid heartbeat, among many others. And no, they are not faking it, nor are they trying to exaggerate their feelings.

When somebody has a phobia, he or she is going to need medical attention from an experienced psychologist. Because this kind of disorder can hinder a person from performing normally and carrying out daily routines. There are many reasons why a person develops arachnophobia. It could develop in a person even as a child, especially when they are faced with a terrifying and life-threatening situation regarding spiders.

One example is being locked up in a closet filled with spiders, or experiencing spiders crawling over somebody’s body. Did you know that children can develop arachnophobia even just by simple threats about spiders such as, “If you do not eat your vegetables, the big spider will take you away.” Children of a wild imagination can emancipate a vision that is far from the actual object. By giving them the idea that spiders can take them away or eat them alive, they start to create images that will soon grow into an impending phobia that can ruin their lives.

As time passes by, no matter how much the child forgets the constant threats and fear of spiders, the idea of its danger has put its claws deep within his subconscious.

All it takes is one trigger to activate the onset of phobia in his mind. As responsible parents, you should take a closer look at how you discipline your children. If you do not want them to experience trauma or phobia as they grow older, as much as possible, stop threatening them with pests or any other creature. When you do, you’re teaching your child to be fearful instead of being resilient.

When we were little children, my first cousin Jasmine had panic attacks every time she sees a spider.  No matter how much we tell her that it is going to be okay and that they are harmless, it never sinks in her mind.  In all the years I’ve known her, she always had this image that a spider is going to get her in her sleep. Only to find out twenty years later, that her mother had been threatening her to do as she is told or else, the spider is going to eat her. It was a cruel thing to do. She most often bullied in high school because she did not want the thought or mere sight of spiders, not even in PowerPoint presentations nor papers. Our teacher had to revise every sheet of paper just to remove the spiders on the quizzes and test papers.

When she turned 22, we thought that she had to overcome her excessive fear of spiders.  However, one night, when she was taking a bath, we did not anticipate a spider hiding in one of the shampoo cabinets. And when she opened it, we were startled to hear a loud shout. For days, she was unable to sleep, nor eat.  She can’t even go to the bathroom unless she’s already convinced that there are no more spiders around. Because of this, we had to look for the best pest control service in Mooresville, NC to clean the whole house and rid it of spiders and all other pests.  

Criteria For The Best Pest Control Service

In North Carolina alone, there are literally hundreds of pest control companies to choose from. Luckily, there is a criterion to determine which rises as the best. To make sure that no pest is left in your home, you are going to need a pest control service that has it all for you.  As a responsible homeowner will need an expert spider exterminator that offers these five criteria, knowledge and skill, safe methodology, professionalism, and price.

First of all, you will need to consider if the exterminators have sufficient information and proficiency to use the necessary treatments for pest control. They must be equipped with ample training and education for their line of work. If not, they might be able to bring more harm than good to your home. Every expert has their professional and scientific obligation to society.  The exterminators must be able to update their data from time to time to ensure the reliability of their processes. In addition to this, you must also ask about the methods and treatments used for pest extermination. Especially if you have children, pets, and plants, you must be sure that the chemicals will not cause harm to your loved ones. Feel free to ask if the residues are safe for human contact just in case there are some left on the floors, walls, and other places inside the home.

The next factor to consider is the professionalism of the staff and exterminators in a company. Given that their clients are not as knowledgeable as they are in the subject of pest activity and pest extermination, the company must be willing to listen to the concerns and answer the queries of their clients without deceit. They must be accommodating and understanding to the needs of their customers to establish a helping relationship and work as a team to eliminate all the threat of pests at home.

Lastly, the most important factor to consider is the price. Think about your financial obligations. Consider the amount you will be paying for pest control. As a mom, as a student, or a worker, it is your duty to think about the monetary duties you have for yourself, your family, and your home. Your tight budget must not be a reason to have the pest-free life you and your family deserve.
