Spider Exterminator In Jackson MS
Spiders (order Araneae) are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all other orders of organisms. Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica and have become established in nearly every habitat with the exceptions of air and sea colonization. As of 2008, at least 43,678 spider species, and 109 families have been recorded by taxonomists; however, there has been dissension within the scientific community as to how all these families should be classified, as evidenced by the over 20 different classifications that have been proposed since 1900.
Arachnophobia, or fear of spiders, is something plenty of people suffer from and such fear is not always unfounded. It is true that some spider species are beneficial, helping to control
obnoxious insect pests by feeding on them. Other kinds of spiders not so much. Here in Mississippi, exterminators find themselves dealing primarily with several different spiders.
The black widow can be identified by a red or orange hourglass-shaped marking on its body. Its bite is not always fatal (although it may be too young children). It can however make one very sick for almost two days, and symptoms from the toxin which include muscular pain and swelling can go on for a month or more.
The wolf spider looks a bit scary, but they are harmless. They are lone scavengers and do not spin webs. They are often mistaken for small tarantulas with their larger bodies and fur. They most often feed on other insects and find themselves inside homes or businesses looking for food and water.
We also treat for a variety of common house spiders, which we generally find in the eaves of homes, corners of the foundation, corners inside the home, and at the base of windows.
