Oklahomans are no stranger to a wide-variety of spiders and neither is Arrow Exterminators. We have over 60 years’ experience in spider control within the state. Spiders are an essential part of Oklahoma’s ecosystem and help control bug populations, however, the arrival of poisonous spiders within a home can be an immediate justification for spider control.
Many spiders build webs for shelter or gathering food sources, however, not all spiders exhibit this behavior. Spider webs can be found in several different varieties, although the orb web is the most commonly seen. Spider webs are created out of a proteinaceous silk extruded from spinnerets on the spider. The silk that spiders use to weave webs is strong, elastic and very adhesive.
Spiders have become reviled over time as one of the creepiest and most feared organisms in the world. Spiders are often confused to be insects but belong to the arachnid family. Arachnids are characterized by their two body segments, eight legs and lack of wings or antennae.
Most spiders have four pairs of eyes that can be arranged in a wide variety of patterns between species. In some species of spider, the number of eyes they possess can vary from six all the way to none. This is determinate on their natural habitat and evolutionary hunting methods.
Spiders bites on humans generally are rare. The main reason for spider bites on humans has historically been attributed to the spider being threatened. Given the size advantage humans have on spiders, the likelihood of one attacking unprovoked is low.
Generally, spiders will be found in dark areas that limit the risk of them being disturbed by human interaction. There are many different nesting habits for the wide variety of spiders encountered within Oklahoma. For this reason, there are many different places they can be found within a home.
Like all other lifeforms, a spider’s life cycle starts in a baby form then progresses to adulthood. For arachnids, young are developed within eggs instead of a womb as seen with mammals. This is crucial in the way spiders have adapted to develop their young.
Oklahoma is home to several different species of spiders. The variety of spiders found within the state exhibit a rich diversity. Oklahoma is also home to two of the most venomous spiders in North America, the black widow and brown recluse.
Of the spiders listed above, only two are considered a threat to human health. The brown recluse and black widow are commonly found in Oklahoma and can be dangerous to every age group. For this reason, spider control is an issue of safety. Arrow exterminators can keep your property safe with our spider control services.
Brown recluse bites can be accompanied by a wide range of symptoms including localized pain, fever, tissue damage and exposure of muscle tissue. In these extreme cases, skin grafting is required to repair the damage. This is because of the necrotic properties of the brown recluse’s venom.
Black widow bite symptoms mimic the common symptoms of appendicitis, colic or food poisoning. If symptoms are becoming apparent after a black widow spider bite, victims should contact a doctor immediately. Though rare in recent times, untreated black widow bites can be fatal to humans.
