Pest Control Brown Recluse Spiders and Black Widow Spiders
Pest control brown recluse spiders and black widow spiders should be taken seriously. There are many different types of spiders in the Springfield, Missouri area, but these two species pose the biggest threat to people. Both can cause painful bites, which can be deadly in some cases. The brown recluse spider bite can cause severe blistering, blue discoloration, and necrotic lesions with scarring. However, the black widow spider bite can cause severe neurological symptoms.
Brown recluse spiders are a venomous spider commonly found all over the United States. Its name comes from the distinctive violin mark on its back. With its small, brown body it can be hard to see, and because it prefers dark hiding places (both indoors and outdoors) it can inflict its bite before you even know its there. Although they are not particularly aggressive, brown recluse spiders do tend to lash and bite if it’s accidentally touched or disturbed.
You may not even notice a bite from a brown recluse spider at first. It is not unusual for someone to realize they’ve been bitten until several hours later. The severity and aftereffects depend on a person’s sensitivity and the amount of venom released. Usually, within a few hours, the bite area will become inflamed and start to hurt, and within a day, you will begin vomiting, become feverish and experience flu-like body aches and rashes or pain in your joints. In addition to illness, a brown recluse spider bite causes necrosis (tissue death), and the bite area can take months to heal and leaves a large, unsightly scar. You should seek medical attention right away when someone is bitten by a brown recluse spider.
Black widow spiders are also one of the most venomous spiders in Springfield, Missouri, although death from a bite is rare. The black widow spider can be easily identified by its solid, shiny black color with a red hourglass-shaped mark on its underbelly. Most bites are caused when someone reaches into a dark place such as woodpiles, corners of garages or closets and the like, where the black widow likes to hide. In some cases, a black widow’s bite may produce general muscle aches and nausea. However, their bite can be especially dangerous to small children, someone with a compromised immune system, or someone who is allergic.
