Does the sight of a spider give you anxiety? Are you tired of spiderwebs covering the exterior of your home? Have you seen a poisonous spider and are worried for your family’s health? If you are dealing with any of these problems in Lenexa, Kansas, help is available. With a few simple prevention tips and some professional pest control help, you can get rid of the spiders in your home for good.
Common Spiders in Kansas
The midwest is a haven for bugs because of its hot, humid weather. Common spiders found in Lenexa, Kansas and surrounding areas include: wolf spiders, orb spiders, jumping spiders, garden spiders, brown recluses, and black widows. Of the many species of spiders that call Kansas home, only the brown recluse and black widow pose a real danger to humans. These two spiders are poisonous and should be carefully controlled to prevent problems.
Brown recluses in Lenexa are approximately the size of a quarter. They are usually light brown with a dark brown violin shaped mark on their back. This marking has given it the nickname “fiddleback” spider and is one of its most identifiable features. Brown recluse bites can cause pain, swelling, nausea, and in some cases necrosis (death) of the surrounding tissue. Recluse bites are often slow healing and very painful.
Black widows may be the most feared spider in the U.S., and they are quite common in Lenexa. These spiders are also easy to identify by their shiny black bodies and red (or orange) hourglass shape on the underside of the abdomen. Black widow bites can cause pain, vomiting, sweating, difficulty breathing, and in very rare cases death in susceptible populations.
Only a handful of people in the United States die each year due to a spider bite, but it is still a risk that most people do not want to take. It is therefore important to know how to prevent spiders in areas of close contact with humans. Spiders like to live in dark, moist areas that are undisturbed like basements, attics, wood piles, closets, or in other stacks of debris. When you are in these areas, take some precautions so that you do not unintentionally bother a spider. When working in the garage or moving storage boxes, it is a good idea to wear gloves and long pants. It is also wise to not leave piles of clothing, shoes, or other things on the floor. Before wearing an article of clothing that has been on the floor, shake it out carefully.
