Many residents are afraid of spiders. It should be noted, though, that they are helpful due to their role in eating insects. In most instances, they are completely harmless to humans. The poisonous venomous that you might come into contact with in Vista is the black widow.

Where to find this kind of spider?

In most instances, venomous spiders like the black widow won’t be in your home. When they do come into homes they are found in dark areas such as closets and basements. More commonly, black widows are discovered in piles of firewood or sheds. To protect yourself, make sure that you always put gloves on when reaching into dark areas such as woodpiles. As you’ve likely seen, they can be identified by a jet-black body with a red hourglass shape on its underside. If you see one of these in or around your home or business you should call us or another spider control expert immediately.

Is their bite deadly?

Their bite is quite painful. The pain starts from the bitten part, then a few minutes later, it will spread to other body parts. A bite from them can barely result in death. Male bites are not that dangerous but the female type can pose a threat to humans. They only bite when they are disturbed.

They also tend to be extremely timid and has rarely been reported to bite. Its webs may occur anywhere that there is sufficient space to make one. It may be extremely abundant in houses and other man-made structures (e.g., barns, fences, guard rails, bridges). They reproduce frequently and disperses rapidly, which makes it nearly impossible to control.
