Black Widow Pest Control in Boise
Instantly recognizable by a bright red hourglass symbol on their abdomen, the black widow spider is one of North America's most venomous arachnids. Found across the United States, the bite of these dangerous critters often times require a trip to the emergency room. If you believe your home has become infested by black widows and you are looking for a black widow exterminator in Boise, call Edge today. We respond promptly to every service call and will be at your residence within 24-48 hours.
Though the red hourglass is an easy way to recognize the black widow spider, only the female spiders carry this marking, making it an inefficient way to determine infestation. Furthermore, the markings may be orange, white, or tan colored. The male spiders are brown and much smaller than their female counterparts. However, don't stress over identifying your pests - if you believe you have spotted unfriendly spiders in your home, give Edge a call. Each location has an Associate Certified Entomologist on staff that can positively identify any pest.
Black Widow Bite
Black widow spiders like to spin their messy webs in dark, undisturbed corners. While they are not aggressive, they will bite if surprised or trapped. If you have an infestation in your home, bites are likely to occur when unknowingly stepping on spiders or reaching into a dark corner that the spider has made its home. While the bites are extremely painful, most healthy adults will heal within 2-3 days with no complications.
Care Tips for Black Widow Bites:
- Wash the bite with water and soap
- Apply ice to relieve swelling
- Take over the counter pain medications
- Seek immediate medical attention If you experience severe muscle pain, nausea or vomiting, fever, or difficulty breathing
- Small children and the elderly should be taken to the emergency room if bitten regardless of symptoms
