Detroit Spider Control

Are you sick of sneaky Detroit spiders?

We’ve all encountered creepy, crawly spiders from time to time in our homes, but it’s the sneaky spiders you need to watch out for in Detroit. You might wake up and start going through your morning routine, only to find a spider hanging out in your shower, when you clearly had first rights to the bathroom!

Spiders are definitely a bothersome roommate, and with the pros at Rove Pest Control, you won’t have to deal with spiders on your own. In fact, Rove has you covered from all types of creepy spiders.

Time to evict your spider tenants

Spiders aren’t exactly the most fun roommates. While they certainly can be beneficial to the environment and even occasionally eat other pests, they are still annoying. They might even decide to start a brand-new family right in your house. Before you know it, every nook and cranny around your home is filled with spiderwebs.

Even worse is that spiders are usually invited by their other pest friends. Unlike many pests, which feed on food, you may have left out or uncovered, spiders actually eat other insects and pests. This means that if you are seeing a lot of spiders, it could mean you have lots of other pest issues you might not know about.

Some spiders common to the Detroit area, like the brown recluse or black widow, can inflict horrible pain and, if you are in a weakened condition, even cause death. With this is mind, you might want to rethink what you are doing for spiders in your house.

These spiders don’t hunt you down and attack. Most brown recluse or black widow spider bites take place when you put on clothing or shoes, where these spiders like to hide.

This probably doesn’t make you feel good, but it’s a helpful warning. It’s also helpful to know that if you get bit by a brown recluse or black widow spider, immediately apply ice to the bite then head to the hospital. If you can, have a brave soul in your house capture the spider in a clear container and bring it with you.

More often than not, we at Rove Pest Control identify spiders that are thought to be a brown recluse or black widow, but instead are harmless. Spiders are difficult to identify and a bite mark alone can be almost impossible to determine what kind of pest bit you.

Spiders don’t usually bite, but if you feel you’ve been bitten, be sure to find out if the “bite” mark is actually a bite. A doctor can do a better job identifying bug bites than most people.

Spiders can be a nightmare

Arachnophobia included, most movies about spiders are in the horror genre, and rightfully so. Spiders are the stars of many nightmares, especially when you wake up at night and feel something crawling on your arm or across your face.

Even if it’s just one spider living in your bathroom, closet, or attic, is usually just the tip of the iceberg. We can help rid your home of these frightful pests. There is no need to be scared in your own home. Let Rove Pest Control tackle your spider control needs in Detroit and the metro.

A bit more info on Spiders

With more than 30,000 species of spiders, the potential for trouble in your home is great. Some are smaller than the head of a pin, while others can be larger than a person’s hand. Many people confuse spiders as insects, however they are classified as arachnids.

Spiders have eight legs but ants, bees, beetles and other insects have only six legs. Arachnids include pests like daddy long legs, scorpions, mites and ticks.  Some common colors for spiders are brown, grey or black. A spider also has no bones, but it does have a protective outer skin called an exoskeleton.

A spider’s body consists of the cephalothorax and the abdomen. Each of these sections have parts attached to it called appendages. A spider’s eyes are on top and near the front of its head. Different species of spiders have different numbers of eyes and the size and position also varies. This can be helpful when determining what kind of spider issue you may have in your home. Most species have eight eyes, arranged in two rows of four each, making identification difficult to the untrained eye.

The number of eggs that a spider can lay at one time varies with the size of the spider. An average sized female spider can lay about 100 eggs, but some of the largest spiders have been known to lay more than 2,000 eggs! The most common types of spiders in this area are black widow spiders, wolf spiders, jumping spiders, garden spiders, crab spiders, funnel-web spiders and hobo spiders.

With spiders laying as many eggs as they do, a small spider issue can turn into a large spider issue very quickly. In addition to this, an abundance of spiders in your home is usually a sign of other looming pest issues. Spiders feed on other pests and insects, so if there are high numbers of spiders, they are going to require high numbers of insects and pests to feed on as well. For this reason, we recommend setting up a pest control treatment whenever spiders are noticed in your home to eliminate spiders and their pest food sources.
