There are over 35,000 spiders found around the world. Every continent, including Antarctica, has spiders. All species of spiders are venomous; however many do not have the ability to bite humans due to the size of their mouths. Spiders are predators who hunt for their food and their venom is the way they subdue their prey.
There are over 3,000 varieties of spiders found in the United States. While some spiders prefer to live in specific climates, they are not restricted to any single area. Migration of spiders is often quite common. You can find many different spiders in Arizona. However, the most common spiders found in Arizona include two of the most dangerous spiders in the country.
Most Common Spiders Found In Phoenix
- Wolf Spider: These spiders are known to be brown or dark colored with lots of hair on their body. There are many different speciies so appearance may vary. They are known to be fast, have good eyesight and tend to carry a sac of eggs around 100 or more on their back. Wolf spiders are nocturnal, so they hunt actively at night and hide during the day. Wolf spiders tend to seek warmer habitats, so they have the potential to hide in certain areas of the house. They are venomous, but their bit is not lethal to humans
- Camel Spiders: This very common spider is tan and looks almost like a scorpion and first glance. These spiders love to invade homes and are very common inside and outside. Light brown in color and a little oddly shaped, these spiders have huge mouths and give quite a pinch when thy bite. Thankfully, the bites from these spiders are not toxic to humans. However, because they do carry a trace of venom, people who have allergic reactions to insect and spider bites should remain cautious.
- Black Widow: Known as one of the most venomous spiders in the country, these aggressive spiders have absolutely no fear of people and are not afraid to attack to protect their nests. Female black widows can lay eggs four to eight times during the summer season, making them aggressive for a very long period of time. May people react to the venom and need emergency care.
- Brown recluse: This light brown spider has very long straight legs and can fun very fast. The spiders can geet very large and are very aggressive. While their venom is not as toxic as the Black Widow, it has a very dangerous enzyme in it that can lead to skin lesions. Many people that are bitten by a brown recluse have to undergo skin grafts at the area of the bite.
Keeping Spiders Out of Your Home
It can be very difficult to keep spiders out of your home without professional treatment. Spiders can easily crawl through openings that are microscopic, and they are naturally good at hiding and disguising themselves.
Spiders tend to put up webs in areas where they believe prey will pass. Always look around window sills and door openings on both the interior and exterior of your home. Dark areas are also very common for spiders to live, including the spaces under your dressers.
If you believe that your home or property is being invaded with spiders, especially brown recluse or black widows, it is very important to get your home inspected by a professional pest control company to avoid injuries to people or pets.
COCKROACH TREATMENT AND PREVENTION
German Cockroach elimination is particularly difficult. Other common species include Oriental Cockroaches and American Cockroaches. In Phoenix, German cockroaches have high resistance to many insecticides and reproduce faster than all other roaches, making it difficult to apply pest control.
GERMAN COCKROACH IDENTIFICATION
German cockroaches are a nocturnal pest measuring .50 – .63 inches in length. Varieties in Phoenix come in tan, brown, to almost black in color, and have two, dark parallel streaks spanning from the head to the base of the wings. Although the German cockroach has wings, it is unable to fly.
ROACHES INITIAL FLUSH-OUT
Green Monster’s roach elimination in Phoenix is a thorough process. We begin by applying flushing agents to the area. Then, we administer a form of birth control or IGR, to control their reproduction rate. As a final step, we apply residual barriers to ensure colony elimination. This process can take up to 90 days for total elimination.
MONTHLY PREVENTION IS NESSECARY
To eliminate the population of cockroaches and prevent future infestations from outside sources, monthly treatment with liquids, aerosols, dusts and baits are required. All German Cockroach work is guaranteed with a monthly service after 90 days.
Pest Control for Ants in Phoenix
One of the most common, and perhaps most aggravating, insects around the Phoenix Metro area are ants. The weather in Phoenix is very agreeable to ants, and once settled into an area, ant colonies quickly grow. Exterminating these pests will require the help of a professional exterminator because many home remedies often seem to increase egg-laying by the queens, creating even larger colonies.
- Argentine Ants
- Southern Fire Ants
- Crazy Ants
- Leafcutter Ants
- Pavement Ants
- Carpenter Ants
- Odorous Ants
Damage To People And Property
Each of the ants listed above have specific dangers associated with them. Of this list, however, the three most dangerous ants to be concerned about in this area are the Argentine, the Fire, and the Carpenter Ant.
The Argentine ant does not necessarily do anything that would be harmful to humans, such as attacking or swarming, but the breed at such a significant pace that in a matter of a few months a single colony can become several million strong, overtaking a home or property. The Argentine ant is one of the few insects that have multiple queens within one colony, and they have extended life spans compared to other ants. These ant colonies will quickly overtake a property or home making it impossible to live there without professional extermination services.
The Southern Fire ant is a very aggressive ant that is not afraid of people. If the fire ant sees a person or animal approaching it will attack. Fire ant bites are very painful and can cause severe allergic reactions. Even in people who do not necessarily react to insect bites will react to fire ant bites.
Carpenter ants cause the most significant damage to property of all these species. This breed of ants is called “carpenter” because they love wood. They will chew wood and other building materials, destroying any structure from the inside out. Carpenter ants love dark and damp areas to start their colony and then they slowly invade the property until everything edible to them has been used.
While it is nearly impossible to prevent ants from invading a property without professional treatments, there are things that you can do to slow their progression and make our property less appealing to the insects. Removing all debris from your yard and piles of yard waste is the first step. Ants love dark and moist places and love piles of yard waste to start their colonies.
Avoid leaving standing water in any area if possible. Ants look for a water source, much like humans, to start their colonies. It is also very important to make sure that you seal cracks in your home foundation and around windows and doors. At the first sign of a colony developing anywhere in your yard, seek treatments to prevent them from spreading.
If the pest you’re seeing looks like an ant, but is a little off, it might be time to get a termite inspection.
