Spider Behavior: How They Hunt, Feed, And Mate

We could write books about how spiders behave inside and around local homes. To make sure you have what you need, we want to take just a moment today to break down how these pests hunt, feed, and mate. This information will help you better understand spiders and offer some insight into why they might invade your home. Let's start with their hunting habits.

Symptoms Of Spider Bites: What To Expect And How To Treat

We have good news for you. Most spiders that live here in Dallas are not a threat to your health. In fact, many local species do not have the ability to pierce human skin or venom strong enough to cause serious harm. 

With that in mind, there are a few local species that can cause serious trouble with their bites. The two you should be most concerned with are the brown recluse and the black widow. These are not the only spiders that can cause harm, but they are the only two that pose a legitimate medical threat. To show this, let's compare a bite from a wolf spider to one from a black widow or brown recluse. 

A wolf spider bite is mildly painful and might cause redness or minor swelling around the site of the wound. If you are allergic to the venom, you might deal with other symptoms, including breathing difficulty, dizziness, and more extreme swelling. Talk to your doctor to better understand your risk.

Preventing Spider Infestations: Practical Tips And Tricks

There is something you need to know before we talk about spider prevention. These pests have no problem invading your home. They only need a tiny gap, crack, or opening to squeeze their way indoors. Finding and sealing all of these entry points is nearly impossible. That said, it is more important that you use methods to deter these pests that spiders invade to hunt. 

Deterring pests may involve things like wiping up spills or cleaning your home. To help top spiders before they invade and cause trouble, here are some general pest prevention tips to consider: 

  • Do a slow lap around your home and look for gaps, holes, and cracks in its exterior foundation. Fill in these potential entry points using a caulking gun or some liquid cement.
  • Identify damage to windows and doors and repair or replace weatherstripping, door sweeps, and window screens that are not working properly.
  • Turn off all exterior lights after it gets dark each night. Another option is to invest in insect-resistant bulbs.
  • Thoroughly clean your interior spaces and do your best to keep things clean. It also helps to address clutter as much as possible and organize living spaces to avoid clutter buildup in the future. 
  • Address moisture issues like leaky pipes, damaged fixtures, and cracked gutters. With this, eliminate all sources of water buildup inside or around your home.

It is difficult to keep up with prevention tips in a way that will effectively deter spiders and other local pests. If you are looking for an easy and effective solution that will work to keep these invaders at bay, you need professional care provided by our team at Adams Exterminating Company. 

At Adams Exterminating Company, our dedicated technicians understand how spiders think and where they might take shelter inside local homes. All you need to do is let us know you need assistance.

  • How do I get started?

To make a plan, one of our licensed service technicians will come to your home or business and perform a thorough inspection of your property. Then, we will work with you to come up with a solution that meets your needs.
  • Do you offer pest control to businesses?
    Yes, we offer both residential and commercial pest control. We will work with the needs of your business to ensure that pests are not a problem. Furthermore, we understand the State of Texas’s Health and Safety Codes when it comes to pesticide use and pest control.
  • Do you offer any organic/green/low toxic treatments?

    We do offer “green” treatments because we understand that though the synthetic pesticides that we typically use are quite safe, some people for various valid reasons prefer a green approach to pest control. In addition to employing completely non-chemical measures such as structural and mechanical alterations (weep-hole exclusions, recommendations on door sweep replacement etc.) and glue traps or other monitoring devices, we have a number of natural and botanical insecticides that we can use to treat your home or business.

    We commonly use natural products such as boric acid, diatomaceous earth, and a number of different botanical products (pyrethrum, rosemary oil, cedar oil, etc.). These products can be very effective when used properly. One downside is that they usually don't last as long as synthetic pesticides, so we generally recommend a more frequent treatment cycle, such as monthly, when using these products. Just tell the person you speak with on the phone or the technician who services your property about your preference and we will be happy to accommodate you.
