Spiders are little monsters. Sure, we know they eat other problematic insects but the reality is that no one wants more spiders in their home. We all want fewer spiders! That is pretty much common around the world. Now, we are really only really threatened by a couple of spiders and their venom in the US.
The biggest problems are in the highly venomous varieties that can cause serious problems with your body
The black widow is the queen of your crawlspace. She lives down there in all her shiny black glory. With her red hourglass underside, she is very hard to misidentify. This is a very dangerous spider with a venom that can be fatal to some people.
The brown recluse is another dangerous spider that has a necrotic venom that eats away at your flesh. These guys like dry areas that are rarely disturbed. If you get bit by a brown recluse, chances are you wandering into their territory and you need to spend more time dusting in those dark corners of your attic.
So what methods and means are there to assure that we can fight back against these nasty little creatures.
There are many people who are scared of any spider they see and you are going to rarely come across something dangerous. However, you dont know when that time comes. It’s best to keep spider activity down to a minimum.
You can use all sorts of methods and means to make this happen.
Many people go the route of getting professional help and there is something to be said about that. The pros are going to be able to have the biggest upfront effect.
You can still employ natural modalities like essential oils, as well. You are not tethered to a pest company bill.
