Black Widow Spider Pest Control

Black widow spiders can be found all over the United States and reside in attics, basements, garages, sheds, crawl spaces, underneath furniture, and in other dark, rarely disturbed areas of homes. While they rarely bite unless threatened, black widow spiders are considered one of the most poisonous spider species in North America, with venom that’s 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake’s. If you suspect you have an infestation of black widow spiders, it’s in your best interest to seek local pest control services as quickly as possible.

Black Widow Spiders

What Does A Black Widow Spider Look Like?

The female black widow spider is characterized by its shiny black body and the red hour-glass-shaped marking on its abdomen. Male black widow spiders are usually smaller than females and differ slightly in appearance, with brownish bodies and orange markings. Black widow spiders have eight legs, eight eyes, roundish bodies, and are usually anywhere between .5 inches to 1.5 inches long. Additionally, black widow webs usually appear messy, lacking shape and form. Not sure you have black widow spiders or some other species? Check out our pest identification guide!

Black Widow Spider Prevention

There are several steps home and business owners can take to minimize the risk of a black widow spider infestation. One of the most effective ways is by limiting the places around your property where they can hide. For example, reducing clutter in your garage or attic can eliminate spots they could otherwise set up habitats. Additionally, you should examine your property’s exterior and seal any cracks or openings where spiders can gain entry.
