Brown recluse infestations in Murfreesboro homes
When brown recluse spiders get into out Murfreesboro homes, it can be quite distressing. These spiders present a serious issue in our service area and we have many customers that are in a really difficult situation. If you're seeing these poisonous spiders in your home it is important to understand what you're dealing with. Here's what you need to know.
Is it a brown recluse?
This is the first question that needs to be answered. Not every brown spider that gets into your home will be a brown recluse. A brown recluse spider is ¼ to ½ inches in length, has 8 legs, no antennae, and is light to dark brown in color with a dark brown violin marking on its back.
Will a brown recluse attack?
These spiders don't prefer to attack humans. Bites usually occur when a brown recluse spider gets trapped or when it is started. Bites can sometimes be averted by shaking footwear and clothing out before wearing it.
How bad is a bad recluse bite?
A bite from a brown recluse spider is sometimes painful. This pain often grows over an eight hour period. These bites may be accompanied by chills, fever, body aches, and a localized ulcer. In some cases, bites can lead to a spread of necrosis. Put ice on the bite wound and consult a healthcare provider if you are bitten.
Where do these spiders hide?
They prefer to hide in the secluded areas of a home, such as attics and closets. Sometimes they go into areas that are undisturbed for a while and this can bring them into contact with people when they return home.
Should I use DIY brown recluse spider control?
If you have a brown recluse problem, we would not recommend turning to DIY solutions. The reclusive nature of brown recluse spiders makes it extremely difficult to confirm whether or not your control methods have worked. And, it is easy to make mistakes with brown recluse insecticides. Some products won't work unless they are sprayed directly on a spider or a spider comes into contact with the product while it is still wet. If it dries, it has no effect.
