Spider Control

Besides being a nuisance, some spiders can also be potentially deadly. The two main species of poisonous spiders are the brown recluse and the black widow. They are capable of inflicting severe pain or even causing death for the very young, the elderly, or others with weakened immune systems.

House Spider:  Striped legs that are alternating tan and dark brown in color characterize the common house spider. The main torso is generally dark brown with lighter-colored designs. House spiders are often found inside homes, especially in attics, basements and on ceilings. They are known for making compact, fluffy webs in the corners of rooms and other structures.

Daddy Long Legs:  While house spiders are one of the most abundant types of indoor spiders in Connecticut, outdoors it is the daddy long leg. They are known to live in tree trunks and other organic materials.

Brown Recluse Spider Pest Control ConnecticutBrown Recluse spider: The brown recluse, sometimes referred to as the violin or fiddleback spider because of the violin-shaped marking on its dorsum, is potentially dangerous. Although bites are rare, the venom can cause serious wounds and infestations should be taken seriously. The brown recluse spider prefers dark, sheltered areas such as under porches and in woodpiles.


Wolf Spider Pest Control ConnecticutWolf Spider:  Wolf spiders are larger, hairier and scarier than any other type of spider in Connecticut. They vary in color from gray to brown. You can often find wolf spiders in or around windows, doors and houseplants, or outside in gardens and under rocks.


Black Widow Pest Control ConnecticutBlack Widow:  Black widow spiders inhabit almost every state in the United States, including Connecticut. Female black widows are the easiest to recognize with their bulbous abdomens and distinctive hourglass red marking.  Males have more elongated abdomens, and instead of an hourglass, have red and white designs on their sides. You can commonly find black widows in basements, woodpiles or under other man-made structures. The severity of a black widow's bite depends on the physical condition of the individual who is bit. Children and elderly individuals are more likely to have serious symptoms, such as chest pain, fainting, elevated heart rate, elevated blood pressure and respiratory complications.
