KNOW ALL ABOUT SPIDERS
BASIC BIOLOGY OF SPIDERS
– Spiders are voracious predators, feeding on insects, other spiders and even small mammals and reptiles. – Spiders are voracious predators, feeding on insects, other spiders and even small mammals and reptiles. – Spiders have four pairs of legs, while insects have three pairs of legs. They possess modified appendages called pedipalps located in the front by the mouth, which in some species resemble an extra set of legs. – Most spiders have eight simple eyes located on the front of the cephalothorax, but some spiders have fewer eyes. The arrangement of these eyes is often used to distinguish between various species of spiders. – The abdomen is unsegmented and contains the genital structures, spiracles and the spinnerets used to spin silk. – Many types of spiders spin some type of web, and the shape or type of web is often as distinctive as the spider itself. Other spiders are active hunters that move about looking for prey, but they do not spin webs.
HOW TO GET RID OF SPIDERS
Some spiders may be harboring outdoors in piles of firewood and debris, under items lying on the ground or in voids in hollow blocks, while others may live in attics and crawl spaces or other areas throughout the home. A thorough, professional inspection from Terminix will reveal these hiding spots and help eliminate spiders from your home.
HOW SPIDER CONTROL WORKS
During your first visit, a Terminix technician will perform a comprehensive inspection and treatment of your home’s interior and exterior. The exterior treatment creates a perimeter to keep pests out.
With each ongoing visit, we’ll treat outside your home, fortifying the perimeter. And, if you request, we’ll treat inside your home again.
