Spider Infestation in Buford, GA
Most of the common spiders found in Buford, GA, are harmless to humans. The exception to this is the black widow & brown recluse spider, as both are dangerous to humans – their bite may result in death if not treated immediately.
Some of the most common species are discussed in detail below.
- Black widow (very dangerous): Entirely black in color, possesses a telltale red hourglass on its belly and a red dot on its backside or two red, unconnected triangles on its belly, depending upon the species.
Female widows are very aggressive when guarding the egg sac. Therefore, they must not be touched. Only experienced technicians with gloves may apply pesticide.
- The brown recluse (very dangerous): They are small in nature and light to brown in color and have a dark brown violin shape on the back. They have three separate pairs of eyes.
These spiders tend to remain in the area where they were born throughout their life, only coming out at night to hunt and prefer dark and quiet places under furniture, inside the wood, etc. They only bite when pressed upon or crushed accidentally by stepping on them. Their bite is very painful and leaves a nasty mark. Other species commonly found in Buford include the East Asian Joro, brown widow, common house spider, wolf spider, crevice spider, yellow garden spider, etc. These species may bite humans, but their venom is pretty harmless. Their presence, however, is a nuisance that needs to be addressed.
The black widow and brown recluse spiders are the dangerous type found inside your house. Other spider species prefer dark and undisturbed areas such as ceiling corners, under furniture, old shoes which are never worn, inside closets, basements, under eaves, etc.
Treatment of all such areas is crucial to eradicating the menace properly. Spiders are on the move when looking for food, and they prefer to establish shelter near their food source, which are other insects. Whereas insects are attracted to leftover human food left on the dining table or kitchen shelf or some food accidentally dropped on the floor and not cleaned properly. The leftover human food will attract other insects, which will attract spiders. Cleanliness and removing insects from your house will deprive spiders of their food source and make it difficult to stay there. Our professional technician will take care of the spiders and their food source (other insects) to ensure proper control.
