Professional Spider Management San Antonio TX
The spider is a member of the “Araneae” order of arthropods. Spiders, along with other arthropods, have between 3 and 4 sets of eyes and 4 sets of legs. The species also have mouthparts with fangs, which are utilized to poison prey and predators. All species of spiders are venomous, some more than others. Contrary to belief, the spider is not as dangerous as it may seem. In fact, entomologists believe there are only two species of spiders that pose a danger to humans. These two spider species include the brown recluse and the black widow.
There are over 45,000 spider species, each of which has abdominal spinnerets utilized to generate silk. The arthropod utilizes its spinnerets to make silk. To produce silk, the spider’s ampullate gland is utilized to excrete proteins, known as “spidroins”.
In protected environments, the spider has a long life, up to 25 years in many cases. The largest of the two genders is the female, which is how they are identified. While the female spider is significantly larger in size, her male counterpart is more often detected indoors. After home infiltration, the male spider remains indoors until breeding season, at which time, a search is initiated for a female to mate.
Do Spiders Pose A Danger To Humans And Animals?
Yes, highly toxic spider venom poses life-threatening risks to humans and animals. Depending on the species, the spider bite can lead to a severe allergic reaction and even death in some cases. Scientists believe only 99 percent of spider bites are dangerous. However, a venomous spider bite can lead to severe skin infection, resulting in necrosis (death of skin) when left untreated.
Systemic toxicity and death have also been reported in rare cases. All spider bites should be examined by a medical professional.
Why Is My Shed Infested With Spiders?
Scientists do not know the true cause of home infiltration by the spider. It is only known that the male spider is generally responsible for home infiltration. And the male spider is drawn to damp, dark, cool, and discrete areas. This explains why your garage is infested with spiders.
What Is The Most Effective Spider Extermination Method?
Professional spider management is more suitable because it utilizes industrial-strength baits and traps. Our spider management protocol calls for custom extermination strategies. We firmly believe custom treatments are more effective than do-it-yourself spider control.
With your help, our extermination team can ensure a speedy eradication of the spider responsible for infesting your property.
Is Spider Bait Environmentally Unfriendly?
Not when the treatment is implemented per the manufacturer’s recommendations. To ensure the state and federal laws, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) requires all manufacturers to seek and obtain approval for their spider bait and pesticide. Only the brands approved by the CDC can lawfully produce and sell their spider bait products in the United States.
Our exterminators and pest control technicians are required to follow strict guidelines when treating spider infestations. These guidelines protect our clients and the environment from unnecessary exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.

What Is The Most Effective Spider Prevention Solution?
Spider prevention is a joint effort of our San Antonio extermination team and clients. If the client is not on board with the prevention strategy, it will be a complete waste of time. Not only is it important for the client to be involved in the process, but also other members of the household. Everyone must be involved, or all our effort will be flushed down the drain.
You can help by sealing all exterior-to-interior openings to prevent further infiltration by other male spiders. This is a major component of our professional spider control.
Since spiders are drawn to damp areas, it is important to combat humidity problems in your garage. We suggest installing ceiling vents and/or dehumidifiers in your garage. Both products are effective in driving down humidity levels in problem areas.
