HERNANDO SPIDER CONTROL
Spider Control in Hernando, FL
Spiders are one of the most feared pests in the world. Here in Florida, there are about 900 known species of spiders. While the majority of these spiders live outdoors, there are quite a few that may find their way into your home. Some spiders are attracted to moisture and are found in basements, crawl spaces and other damp parts of buildings. Others prefer dry, warm places like air vents and upper corners of rooms and attics. Spiders are very hard to control and they are a real nuisance because of their cobwebs. Most people mistake spiders as insects and attempt to eliminate them with insect sprays or repellents. This will not work in many cases.
The real question is, with all of these species in Florida, are they a threat to me and my family? While there are many venomous spiders in Florida, they’re rarely encountered indoors. Florida has four species of venomous Widow Spiders, of which two, the Southern Black Widow and the Brown Widow, may be found around buildings. The Northern Black Widow makes its web at the end of tree branches and the Red Widow is mainly found in sand pine scrub habitat. Another venomous spider that gets a lot of attention in Florida is the Brown Recluse Spider. Although a very few have been collected, the evidence is overwhelming that there is no widespread established population in Florida. Of the few that have been collected, all have been imported from other areas of the world. The Florida climate appears to be one reason why the Brown Recluse has not established here.
