Taking time to relax is a good thing. Relaxing is hard, however, when pests like spiders are around. These local arachnids have a bad habit of showing up when we least expect them.

If you are sick and tired of finding spiders inside your Miami-Dade County home, here are some things to consider to keep them out. Call our team at The PEST Group if you would like to know more about our pest control offerings. We will share with you some of your options for spider control in Miami-Dade County and find a service that will best solve your troubles with these pests.

The Role of Spiders In The Ecosystem: Benefits And Drawbacks

Spiders are not entirely bad. They pose many benefits to our planet's ecosystem. Specifically, they help to control pest populations. Around properties and inside homes, these arachnids work hard to capture and eat nuisance bugs like flies, moths, and even cockroaches.

As nice as this is, having different types of spiders around your home is not a preferred method for pest control. There are much better options available to help you keep spiders and the pests they hunt out of your living areas. We will talk about these methods in just a bit. First, here are some things you should know about the problems spiders cause.

Spiders In The House: Danger Or Nuisance?

Not every spider poses a direct threat to human health. In fact, most local species are completely harmless, and either cannot bite humans or do not have venom strong enough to cause lasting harm.

Keeping this in mind, there are a few species of dangerous spiders that could send you to the hospital. The most common is the brown recluse spider. This pest is small, brown, and has spindly legs. You can best identify it by the dark brown violin-shaped mark behind its head. A bite from this pest causes moderate to severe pain and causes necrosis around the affected area that can turn into an infected ulcer. We highly recommend avoiding this pest as much as possible. If a brown recluse bites you, seek medical attention to reduce symptoms and avoid long-lasting medical problems.
