The Dangers Of Brown Recluse Spiders On Your Property

If you detect a brown recluse spider in your North Texas home, it is important to have a realistic understanding of how dangerous these spiders are. While it is true that a recluse spider has venom that can cause spreading necrosis, this is rarely the case. Most bites are minor wounds with an ulcer at the center. While we recommend that you seek medical attention and have a physician monitor a brown recluse bite, you don't need to fear these spiders.

We're often asked, "Are brown recluse spiders deadly?" You should know that, even in cases where there is a severe reaction and a spread of necrosis, death is very rare. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, the last reported death attributed to a brown recluse spider was in 2004. These are pretty good odds if you ask us.

There is more good news. Recluse spiders are true to their name. They tend to be quite reclusive. If you stay away from them, they're more than likely to stay away from you. Problems don't usually start until these spiders have created a large population. Unfortunately, it is possible for this to happen. Some brown recluse spider infestations in the United States have been reported to have as many as 5,000 individual spiders.

    Yes, we offer three different plans designed to meet your needs and your budget. Our perimeter, Home Guardian, and Home Guardian Plus are all designed to bundle your pest control treatment into a package that fits your needs. If there isn’t a plan that works for you, don’t worry, we will customize one that fits your unique needs.
  • I have a baby/toddler… is it safe to have treatment?
    While the products we use are toxic to insects, they pose almost no serious risk to people when used properly. However, it is always advisable to be careful when using chemicals around small children, including pesticides. If you have a small child, we recommend staying away from the treatment area while the service is being performed and then wait until the product has dried.
  • What are the steps to take prior to receiving flea treatment?
    Please review our flea treatment information sheet found here.
  • Are the products/chemicals you use safe?
    All of the products that we use have undergone extensive testing and have been approved for use by the EPA. Instead of using generic products, we believe in purchasing the best available chemicals that have been manufactured by well-known companies such as Bayer, BASF, and Dow. Additionally, all of our service programs are designed to be effective, safe, and environmentally responsible and all of the products we use are chosen to that end. When used properly by a licensed professional, they pose practically no risk to our customers or their children or pets.
