December 15th, 2022

Do you have a spider problem in your home? Are you looking for solutions for pest control in Tulsa? If you have seen spiders in your house or some of the signs of spiders, contact Montgomery Exterminating without delay!

While most people regard spiders as nuisance pests, some varieties can present a danger to you and your family. It’s important to understand how to identify local spiders. It’s also vital to understand which spiders are dangerous and the best ways to prevent them from gaining access to your home. We’ll discuss this in this blog and explain how Montgomery Exterminating can help you eradicate spiders from your Tulsa home for good. 

Characteristics Of Common Spiders

There are more than 50,000 known species of spiders. Some are poisonous spiders in Oklahoma, while others pose fewer health hazards. Some are hairy, while others have fine or no hair. Their physical characteristics can significantly vary when dealing with tens of thousands of species of spiders.

However, some traits are the same in common spider species. Here are some attributes that common spiders have:

  • Two segmented sections
  • Eight legs
  • Pair of chelicerae (the “jaw” of the spider)
  • Pedipalps (a set of sensors anterior to the first pair of legs)
  • Set of fangs
  • No wings
  • No antennae

Spiders vary in terms of size, color, markings, and more. If you have any questions about what types of spiders you have in your house, Montgomery Exterminating can help. We can identify the type of spider problem you have and solve that problem for you.

Some Spiders Are More Dangerous Than Others

While the vast majority of spiders are venomous, most species are not, nor are these pests typically aggressive; they are prone to biting humans when they feel threatened, however.

You may think that just because most spiders are not likely to hurt you, you don’t have to be concerned if you have a spider problem. However, the following spider species are just a few that can be quite dangerous: 

  • Brown recluse spider: Brown or yellow-brown with a violin-shaped mark
  • Black widow spider: Black with red triangular markings
  • Brown widow spider: Tan and brown with black markings

If you see a spider that you suspect is a black widow, do not attempt to make contact with it. The venom from one of these arachnids is 15 times stronger than rattlesnake venom. It attacks the nervous system and causes its victim pain accompanied by nausea, sweating, itching, tremors, severe abdominal pain, and more.

Five No-Sweat Spider Prevention Tips For Around Your Home

Some spiders are extremely poisonous, while others are more of a bother. Either way, you don’t want them in your home. To that end, the following are five tricks that you can implement in your home to prevent spiders from getting in and becoming comfortable.

  1. Keep your gutter clean and free from debris.
  2. Remove webs from your home.
  3. Repair or replace damaged window screens.
  4. Seal cracks in your home’s exterior.
  5. Keep your home free from clutter.

Keeping your home tidy and tight is a great way to prevent spiders from getting into your house in the first place. If you have a spider problem, these techniques will also improve the long-term effectiveness of our extermination approach!
