Any long-term resident of the Baton Rouge area appreciates what nuisances spiders can be. Not only are they silent in their approach, but their nagging bites can itch worse than the equivalent of nearly any insect. In fact, spiders are in a class all their own: arachnid. Therefore, it’s important to select a company with experience in controlling these creepy-crawly pests!
Spiders can exist rather comfortably in most climates; warm and dry bedrooms or cold and damp basements are both fine by these uninvited house guests. Even if you haven’t seen any scurrying about the home recently, a growing spider population is easy to note by the copious amounts of evidence in every under-dusted corner: the spider’s web. There’s a species of spider for every climate that will have them, and their adaptability will see them spread quickly even in areas that might seem innocuous enough.
As a clutch of spiders can reproduce exponentially, our Baton Rouge spider-control professionals advocate a quick response. If someone is less-than-proactive about dealing with a spider population, it’s only a matter of time until a member of the home is bitten. Painful welts rise up in mere hours, and there is little that can be done besides resisting the urge to scratch at the angry-red skin. This can be especially distressing for young children; their lack of impulse control might see them damage their skin to require a trip to the ER.
Unfortunately, there are some species of spiders out there that will cause worse reactions than painful, raised welts. For example, the infamous black widow spider is common throughout the United States, and the venom of one is rated at 17 times more potent than the venom of a rattlesnake! Then there is the brown recluse spider, a sandpaper-brown arachnid that possesses a bite that causes the living tissue around it to turn necrotic and literally rot away. Given the risks, it’s imperative that a spider control professional is enlisted in the fight against what might be hiding in secluded, dark areas of the home or garden.
The brown recluse regularly rests in clothing, the folds of blankets, or boxes. Be careful when moving any of these items inside that have been outside for some time.
Black widows are easily recognized by their markings and the black and red coloring of their bodies. They often spend time in piles of wood and other cracks and crevices.
