Suncoast Pest Control Curbs the Threat of Florida Spiders as Temperatures Rise

Florida Spiders Overrun Homes While Escaping Detection

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Almost all Florida spiders are venomous. Despite only a handful being harmful to humans, homeowners must remain constantly vigilant to protect their families and pets. With summer quickly approaching, these eight-legged arachnids are actively seeking shelter inside Florida homes. Distinguishing the dangerous Florida spiders from the harmless can prove a trying task for even the most seasoned expert. For the everyday homeowner, this can be nearly impossible.

Black widow, brown widow, and brown recluse spiders are the three most venomous Florida spiders. They have been known to cause serious injury and even death. Making these critters even more dangerous is the fact that they live in spaces tucked away from view. For families with small children, these arachnids make it absolutely necessary to conduct regular home inspections. Sadly, these pests are most often discovered only after an attack has occurred.

Statistically, more people are bitten by spiders in the summer than any other time of the year. Numerous families and happy vacationers have had their plans abruptly changed because of spider bites, with many of these instances extremely avoidable. Prevention against spiders is difficult. They are known for their ability to breed quickly and with the abundance of Florida mosquitoes and other small insects, food is not in short supply. Prevention is key to eradicating the threat of venomous Florida spiders. Around the house, it is best to keep one's property clear of debris. Trash and wood piles make safe havens for spiders.

Although do-it-yourself chemical treatments exist, they usually just attack the symptoms of an underlying problem. Furthermore, many homeowners misuse these treatments, making them impotent against venomous pests or even harmful to one's family. The best way to protect against Florida spiders is to consult a Florida pest control expert. Technicians are professionally trained to identify and exterminate pests.
