Spiders are a non-colonial insect and function as individual predators. Not all spiders are medically significant and many times bites and swelling attributed to them are caused by other factors. From a medical standpoint, the most significant spiders in Southern California are black and brown widows. Brown widows are a non-native species which have supplanted black widows in some locations. In many locations, both live in the same areas.
Spiders in general cause a primal fear. Exactly why is unknown. But their webs are unsightly and they evoke an emotional response for many people.
Successful treatment for spiders is extensive and may require multiple materials to control them. Regardless of the thoroughness of application, it is likely that some spiders will be present in the environs of almost all structures. What can be accomplished is a tremendous reduction in the spider population. Their populations can rebound between applications due to migration from other yards or properties. All of our customers see significant decreases in spider populations.
