There aren’t many things creepier than spiders with their eight legs and many eyes. Just the mention of a spider causes anxiety for many people. Unfortunately, there are a lot of spiders in Olathe, Kansas and throughout the midwest. Residents may like them in their yards and gardens to eat bugs like mosquitoes, flies, and roaches, but they definitely don’t want them in their homes. So, what is to be done? Effective prevention methods and a little help from Six Brothers Pest Control can keep spiders out of your home, while allowing them to live freely in the outdoors.
Types of Spiders in Olathe
Spiders live nearly everywhere in the world, but the heat and humidity of the Midwest makes it a hot spot for spiders. Common spiders in Olathe include: wolf spiders, orb spiders, jumping spiders, garden spiders, and many more. The two most dangerous species of spiders in the United States, the black widow and brown recluse, are also common in Kansas. Proper identification of these spiders can help protect your family.
Black widows in Olathe can be southern, western, or northern widows. Regardless of the exact species, most are black and shiny with a large round abdomen. Black widows are easily identified by the red hourglass marking on their underside. They can grow up to 1 ½ inches long and can give a painful bite that can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, and breathing difficulties.
Brown recluses are usually light brown with a dark violin shape just below their heads. This explains the nickname of “fiddleback” spiders. Brown recluses in Olathe are about the size of a quarter and are often found in basements, attics, crawl spaces, and piles of debris. Recluse bites can cause pain and swelling, but can also sometimes cause systemic symptoms or necrosis (death) of tissues.
The Best Olathe Spider Exterminators
While it is very rare for spider bites to be deadly, they are still something you want to avoid if at all possible. Homeowners can help the situation by keeping their homes clean, sealing the exterior of their houses, and decluttering, but sometimes that still isn’t enough. The professional exterminators at Six Brothers Pest Control have the knowledge and experience to be able to identify dangerous spiders and keep them out of your house. Common treatments include a perimeter treatment that creates a barrier around your home and indoor treatments around baseboards, cracks, and corners. These spider treatments are effective and completely safe for your family and pets. For pest control in Olathe, contact Six Brothers Pest Control today.
