Professional Spider Pest Control Austin TX
The spider is of the arachnid “Araneae” order, consisting of 113 families and approximately 46,500 different species. The arthropod’s most unique physical characteristics are pretty much all of them. The furry body, long spiny legs, shiny black eyes, and mouthparts, all of which are unique features of the spider. Other unique physical characteristics that play a major role in the spider’s survival are the silk glands, spinnerets, spigots “faucets”, and protein. Like the components of a grandfather clock, the aforementioned features work together to create a natural silk material. The spider utilizes its silk to create webs of all sizes that are later utilized to capture lizards, birds, insects, other spiders, and toads.
In a protected habitat, the spider could survive up to 25 years. In its natural habitat, the lifespan is 2 years at most. Differentiating between the male and female is generally easy. As long as you are aware of the fact, the female spider is slightly larger than her male counterpart, the task will be fairly simple.
All spiders are venomous “poisonous”, some more than others. While spiders are venomous, entomologists believe they are not likely to cause harm, following home infiltration. The reason being, the spider has a timid nature like the carpenter bee, making it less likely to confront humans or animals with a bite.
Do Spiders Transmit Disease To Humans Or Animals?
Unlike the mosquito, fly, rat, cockroach, and mouse, the spider does not transmit disease. However, the arthropod does spread toxins to humans through a bite. The amount of toxin will depend on the species. As mentioned previously, some species of spiders are more toxin than others.
Spiders utilize their powerful fangs to inject their victims with toxins. Only 1 percent of spider bites are harmful, the other 99 percent are harmless, according to evidence. Since bites are less likely in all settings, thanks to the spider’s timid nature, the number of new cases is generally minimal. On the other hand, spider bites have been linked to skin infection and necrosis (death of tissue). In rare cases, the victims have died from the toxicity of spider bites.
Why Is My Austin Property Infested With Spiders?
Spider infestation is rare, but always a possibility. These arthropods are solitary critters, meaning they generally do everything alone. They feed alone, travel alone, and spin webs alone. Arthropods are drawn to dark, humid, cool, and discrete areas. While the pests do not set out to infiltrate homes, they will by mishap.
Home infiltration of spiders is almost always the result of weak structural components. Like most insect species, the spider infiltrates residential and commercial establishments through exterior-to-interior openings. These vulnerabilities are in your home’s structure.
What Is The Quickest, Safest, And Most Effective Spider Management Strategy?
There is no one treatment adequately effective to eradicate a spider infestation. Fortunately, an infestation is extremely rare, but again, a possibility. There are two primary options available when it comes to treating spider infiltration in basements, crawlspaces, attics, and garages. These options include “over-the-counter “do-it-yourself” and professional spider control. The two options have both pros and cons, which every Austin consumer should know.
Our professional spider control combines industrial-strength baits and traps. The traps are installed throughout the infested area, as well as the bait. We strategically plan and implement every spider treatment to ensure maximum results.
How Clients Can Help Our Pest Control Experts?
When the species infiltrate the human habitat, the culprit is generally a male. Following home infiltration, the male spider begins building a nest to trap insects and other prey. The arthropod will feed on its victims over a period of time.
To speed up the extermination process, we suggest getting and staying involved. When clients help, our pest control experts can focus on a custom treatment plan. This is expected to be more than a traditional spider treatment. Instead, it will be a custom spider management solution guaranteed to deliver full eradiation.
