Pest Control in Sandy: the Black Widow & Brown Recluse Bites

Pest Control in Sandy against the Black Widow and Brown Recluse Bites

brown recluse spider

Many residents of Sandy, Utah are easily intimidated when they are confronted by spiders inside their own house that they waste no time calling their local Sandy pest control company to deal with these pests. It could just as well be a wise move; although most spider bites are harmless, the black widow and the brown recluse could be dangerous.

spider bitesA medical article from Spider Bites (Black Widow and Brown Recluse) Center – South Jordan, UT, cited some of the symptoms from spider bites, and how to identify these toxic bites:

“A black widow spider bite is said to feel like a pinprick, although victims may not realize that they have been bitten. Sometimes double fang marks may be seen at the location of the bite. The most common localized symptoms of a black widow spider bite are immediate pain, burning, swelling, and redness.

The bite of a brown recluse spider leads to a mild stinging, followed by local redness and severe pain that usually develops within eight hours but may occur later. Some reports of brown recluse bites describe a blue or purple area around the bite, surrounded by a whitish ring and large red outer ring in a “bull’s eye” pattern. A fluid- filled blister forms at the site and then sloughs off to reveal a deep ulcer that may turn black.”

Other general symptoms of bites from both black widow and the brown recluse are: nausea, abdominal pain, fever, joint pain/stiffness, headache, overall feelings of malaise, muscle cramping and tension, rashes, and vomiting. The bite of a black widow is actually hardly fatal, but deaths from the brown recluse spider have occurred and have been recorded.

Whenever you suspect you’ve been bitten by a Black Widow or a Brown Recluse, it is best to seek medical help as soon as possible. For immediate pest control in South Jordan, call your local pest exterminator, such as Beeline Pest Control, to get rid of the infestation.

Reviews from Utah Residents

I have had Beeline spraying my house for several years now. Adam is the best to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, respectful of my home and friendly. If you have any bug issues, I would highly recommend calling.

Tanner is very efficient and pleasant to work with. He has treated our properties several times. We started using Beeline several years ago when we had an ant problem in our house. Since we started using Beeline, we don’t have that problem any longer.
