Spiders crawling around your home bring nothing but fear and stress. Spider prevention combined with professional spider control in Omaha is essential to defeating arachnid invaders. Here’s what our experts at Beeline Pest Control have learned about spiders and how to prevent them. 

The Anatomy of A Spider: Understanding Their Physical Characteristics

Spiders have one of the most impressive species diversities out there, though most types of spiders share similar physical characteristics. Spiders will have eight legs, six to eight pairs of eyes, and segmented bodies. They have spinnerets at the end of their abdomen that they use to create their webs, and they have a pair of fangs that they will use to inject venom into their victims. Spiders do have varying amounts of venom, and only some spiders will have strong enough venom that they are considered a medical danger.

Spiders will have varying sizes, colors, patterns, and physical characteristics, such as hairy legs or spiny legs depending on their species. Because there are so many different spiders around the Omaha area, it’s important to contact Beeline Pest Control for assistance identifying the spiders invading your property.

Spider Bite Symptoms: Warning Signs To Watch For

Though most spiders are considered harmless spiders, all spider bites may bring warning signs and unpleasant symptoms. It’s important to know which symptoms to look out for that might indicate that you need to seek medical attention.

Spider bite symptoms generally include slight pain, itching, and swelling. Mild spider bites don’t go beyond these symptoms, but if you are bitten by a more venomous spider such as a brown recluse or a black widow spider, you might experience intense pain, sweating, nausea, dizziness, muscle spasms or weakness, and rashes or swelling. These symptoms must be treated by a medical professional as soon as possible.

Additionally, signs of an allergic reaction to a spider bite include difficulty breathing or swallowing, hives, and intense pain or rash around the bitten area. Again, these symptoms should receive immediate medical attention to prevent health complications from occurring.

Preventing Spiders From Coming Inside: Effective Prevention Techniques

One of the best ways to deter a spider infestation is to implement our effective prevention techniques. These tips stop spiders from crawling inside your property and making themselves at home:

  • Seal potential spider entry points by repairing cracks and gaps around your home’s foundation, windows, doors, and areas near utility lines that lead inside.
  • Clear outdoor areas of long grasses and overgrown foliage in addition to removing debris piles and woodpiles, as these are all prime spider hiding spots.
  • Declutter interior areas and sweep away any spider webs you come across carefully to mark your property as inhospitable to spiders.
  • Address moisture issues and drainage problems that might be causing the humid and damp conditions spiders love to gather near your property.
  • Remove pest prey infestations with the assistance of Beeline Pest Control to eliminate easy spider food sources.
