Warehouse Black Widow Spider Pest Control
One of our specialties is removing spiders from warehouses and garages of any size. Black widows can be a nuisance for many reasons, and they are scary looking as well. However, the biggest problem with these spiders is the female’s poisonous bite, which may not even be felt at the time it occurs.
The Black Widow Problem
These spiders are common in warehouses, like other spider types. However, female black widows can give a pretty good poisonous bite that can be very dangerous to people and even cause death in the young or elderly. If you see one or more black widow spiders, you should definitely leave them alone and let a professional handle the removal.
Black Widow Spider Bite Symptoms
These spider bites can be painless when they occur or they can be painful. Within a couple of hours, you may have the following symptoms:
- you may feel nauseous
- your blood pressure may increase significantly
- your chest may hurt and you may not be able to breath properly
- you may have a bad headache and a fever along with chills.
IF YOU FEEL YOU MAY HAVE BEEN BITTEN BY A BLACK WIDOW SPIDER, CALL 911 OR SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Why are black widows common residents of warehouse facilities?
These spiders are loners (hence the name ‘widow’) and their habitat typically consists of dark places that are not disturbed often. Therefore, garages and warehouses that have goods which are left undisturbed for longer periods of time offer perfect opportunity for them to nest, eat, and breed. Although they prefer to be left alone and do not attack without accidental or purposeful provocation, they will bite if necessary to defend themselves. As stated above, this is a very bad thing and is not something that you even want to take the chance of occurring.
What to do if you see black widow spiders
If you own or work for a company that uses warehouses or garages for storage or other purposes, especially if some areas are undisturbed for periods of time, you may have a black widow spider problem and not even know it.
