STEPS TO AVOID BEING BITTEN BY A SPIDER...

Although the chance of being bitten by a venomous spider is extremely slim, you can reduce the likelihood by heeding the following:

  • Keep away from areas where black widow or brown recluse spiders area known to concentrate. The widow often makes tangled webs around outbuildings, storage units, old tree trunks or cabins not in regular use.
  • Keep cellars, rooms, closets as clean and clutter-free as possible. These spiders usually will not remain in a constantly disturbed area. This rule can provide a powerful incentive for children to clean their rooms.
    Shake clothing, blankets, towels, and such if they have remained in an area where these spiders may be found.
  • Take care to look before placing your hands in a lumber pile, window-well, under rocks or in little-used cabinets or drawers.
  • Professional pest-control agents and sprays can be used, but these are often expensive and generally unsuccessful. The spiders are tenacious and not highly susceptible to insecticides.
  • Do seek medical attention if you suspect that you have been bitten by either a brown recluse or black widow. However, with most spider bites, victims do not even know they have been bitten. If they do notice, they often attribute the spot to a scratch or splinter.
