  • What are spiders?

    Spiders are arachnids and they are easily recognized by their eight legs, six to eight eyes, and pair of fangs that deliver a varying amount of venom depending on the spider species you are dealing with. Spiders have impressive species diversity, something that is notable by the many different sizes, colors, and patterns that varying spider species display. If you need help with spider identification, Mitchell Pest will be able to help you.

  • Are spiders dangerous?

    While most common household spiders are more afraid of humans than we are of them, some spider species are considered medically dangerous. Additionally, all spider bites have the potential to trigger allergic reactions or leave you with unpleasant symptoms such as pain, swelling, fatigue, and nausea.

    If you experience concerning symptoms after being bitten by a spider, especially if you are having difficulty breathing or swallowing, seek medical attention immediately.

  • Why do I have a spider problem?

    If you are suddenly seeing spiders everywhere around your property, you may accidentally be encouraging these pests. Spiders are attracted to areas with plenty of pest prey, water, and sheltering spaces like cluttered areas and overgrown foliage; a plethora of these factors typically means a spider problem will occur.

  • Where will I find spiders?

    Spiders are most commonly found hiding in outdoor spaces such as long grasses and piles of debris, or in secluded areas like underneath porches and decks or behind plant pots. Inside, spiders may be seen in attics, basements, garages, closets, cabinets, and storage spaces.
