ABOUT THE PESTS / OTHER PESTS / SPIDERS
Long bodied cellar spiders, commonly known as "daddy long legs," live in many places inside and out of the home. You will typically find them in your attics, under eaves, in porches, sheds and shrubbery. When alarmed, this spider shakes its web so rapidly that both spider and web appear as a blur. They feed on small insects, and their bite is harmless to man. However, due to its extensive webbing, pest control operators receive numerous requests for control.

Black widow spiders are found throughout North and South America, and are the most common in the Southwest United States. Their name derives from the female's tendency to eat the male after mating. Adult black widows are black with a red or reddish-orange hourglass shaped marking on its lower abdominal surface. The female is much larger than the male.

These spiders nest close to the ground, usually in dark, quiet, undisturbed places such as woodpiles and boxes. They feed primarily on other insects, thus making regular treatment of other insects absolutely necessary in minimizing black widow population.

A black widow's venom is a neurotoxin that may cause a severe reaction with intense local pain that spreads to other parts of the body. Most fatal cases, which result from respiratory paralysis, occur in children.
