We have all had them in our house. Close encounters with these eight-legged creatures often leave people shaking in their boots. Most of us have also woken up with a spider bite somewhere on our person. Is there anything creepier than knowing something like that was crawling on you while you were asleep? With Toodaloo’s Moosejaw spider control and removal service, you don’t have to wonder.
There is one thing that might be scarier than seeing or touching a spider – and that’s getting a bite from a venomous one. There are a few species to be especially careful of in Canada. Of them all, the most likely danger is the black widow. It has a black body, with a vivid red hourglass shape on its torso. This spider is venomous, and in rare circumstances can be fatal as well. Those most at risk from complications following the bite are infants or the elderly. However, those with pre-exisiting conditions may also be affected differently. No matter what, a bite from a black widow should always be followed up with immediate medical attention.
There are a couple more venomous spiders that you can find in the area, but for the most part, Canada does not have that many dangerous species. Even so, there is no such thing as too much concern for your safety. And even non-venomous kinds can still cause damage and stress to property owners.
Arachnids don’t scare us. We have dealt with them before and are conscious of their behaviours. Knowing is half the battle, as they say. The other half is the rest of the work we do to get those spiders out of your home. This includes exclusion work, sealing up any and all entry points, and clearing out the affected area. Leaving clutter and dark spaces is not something we would allow, since this is one of the things that would attract spiders to a space. And we want to make sure those spiders don’t come back.
