Backyard Bug Patrol Offers Pest Control Services In Great Falls, VA

Great Falls, VA-based Backyard Bug Patrol recently published a blog post titled ‘How Worried Should You Be About Spiders In Your Andrews Air Force Base, MD Home?’ The blog post talks about spiders, how to handle a spider infestation and whether or not it is necessary to get rid of spiders in one’s home. The new blog post can be found here:

Spiders are a cause of anxiety for a lot of people, and fear often dictates how homeowners respond to the presence of such creatures in their homes. Their appearance, coupled with the fact that many are venomous, makes a lot of people uncomfortable around them. The accumulation of cobwebs around the house is another major concern homeowners might have. Being well informed about the different kinds of pests one could potentially encounter and knowing what to expect makes it so homeowners can make better decisions regarding pest control.

The blog post addresses the question of whether or not spiders are a threat. The fear of spiders is not completely unfounded, according to the company. There are a number of species present in the United States that can actually pose a threat to humans. The yellow sac spider, for example, leaves behind itchy, inflamed spots where it bites. Many do not react to the venom at all, which others may have allergic reactions that have the potential to be fatal. Another species present in the United States is the hobo spider. Found primarily in the West, the species’ bite often goes unnoticed at first, then developing into a red, hard and swollen lump and eventually an open wound that leaks fluids before turning black. The venom is generally not enough to kill but, like the yellow sac spider, allergic reactions to the venom can be quite serious.

“North America is home to about 3,400 species of spiders,” says the article. “There are several other spiders you are likely to encounter in your home. The good news is that these are largely harmless. Most spiders with dangerous venom are unlikely to venture into your home, although it’s not impossible. Even so, the trouble of having to deal with their messy webs or getting frightened every time they crawl out of their hiding places is enough reason to get rid of them. If you simply don’t like the idea of sharing your home with spiders or you’ve spotted one of the dangerous species, then you need to act quickly.”

It is usually best to leave it to professionals to handle spiders — whether they are dangerous or not. A professional can easily identify what species are dangerous and how to go about removing them from a home.
