Some pests are merely a nuisance, but many spider species are extremely dangerous. Located in California, Vertex Pest also deals with spider infestations in Nevada and Arizona. Our spider control experts can clear these pests from your property and keep you and your family safe.
All three of the states in Vertex’s service region are home to their share of poisonous arachnids. Recluse spiders, also called brown spiders, are one of the most well-known examples. Brown spider bites are generally not painful, and they often go undetected for several hours. Eventually, the bites swell up and may turn necrotic. Necrosis destroys the tissue of the skin over a long period of time and may require skin grafts to heal.
Spider Control in California, Nevada, and Arizona
Nevada, California, and Arizona also contain large populations of a dangerous species called the western black widow. Females are much larger than males and have highly venomous bites. They can be identified by their black bodies and the red hourglass markings on their abdomens. The neurotoxins contained in female black widow venom cause symptoms such as nausea, stomach cramps, anxiety, tightness of the chest, and difficulty with speech. If the victim of the bite is a child or an elderly person, these symptoms can be life-threatening. Others may still require medical attention to keep symptoms from worsening.
