Spiders are certainly not a fan favorite around Baton Rouge. They are creepy, crawly, and can be found nearly anywhere. No matter what your climate; either dark and damp or dry and warm, there is a species of spider that makes its home there. Even when you can’t see one hiding in the corner or scurrying under the couch, you can still see the evidence of their presence by the webs that they leave around your house.
Spiders are arachnids and anthropods, meaning that they possess eight legs, are invertebrates, have exoskeletons, segmented bodies and jointed appendages. They do not have wings or antennae. The two most dangerous species that are most commonly encountered are the brown recluse and the black widow. If either species is present in your home or business, it is crucial to remove them immediately. Bayou Cajun Pest Control can help!
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.
