You’ve seen their ‘powers’ clearly displayed on the big screen for years, but are these ferociously fanged pests truly as incredible as they seem? The answer is no.
Spiders have never possessed any great powers, but perhaps there are still some hopeful holdouts that allow arachnids to bite them every year just in case we're wrong (we're not). Sadly, a bite from a run-of-the-mill Tukwila spider won't send you swinging from Manhattan skyscrapers any time soon. A shortlist of the most common arachnid species in Tukwila include:
- The Wolf Spider
- The Cellar Spider
- The Jumping Spider
- The Brown Recluse
- The Black Widow
While not all of the above species are dangerous, two, in particular, are both rare and potentially life-threatening. Brown recluse and black widow spiders are shy and almost entirely conflict-avoidant. However, a bite from one of these spiders will cause severe pain and should receive immediate medical attention. Thankfully, most spider species are harmless and cannot puncture human skin. Yet, they are usually not a welcome sight in the average Tukwila home.
How Tukwila Homeowners Keep Spiders Locked Out For Good
These helpful spider-prevention tips have helped Tukwila homeowners stay safe and healthy since 2013.
- A great place to start with spider prevention is by eliminating any other pests that spiders could be feeding on. Regular pest control services are an excellent way of eliminating pest prey species in the home.
- Consistently maintain proper food and trash storage in the home, clearing clutter, sweeping away webs, and vacuuming often.
- Addressing moisture issues in the home is a good way to mitigate both spider activity and the pest prey they feed on.
- Identify and seal up potential entry points by checking screens and door sweeps, as well as checking for cracks within the foundation and walls of the home.
