January 15, 2024
Living in a home with spiders is not fun. These pests are creepy and occasionally dangerous. The good news is that most local species are not harmful. This does not make these pests any less of a problem indoors, however. If you have not taken the time to think about methods to prevent spiders in Tulsa, here are some things you should know today.

The Anatomy Of A Spider: Understanding Their Physical Characteristics
Not all spiders are the same. Some of these pests are incredibly small. Others are large. Some have bulbous abdomens and thin legs. Others have wide bodies and thick, hairy legs. Some spiders are quick on their feet and hunt for their prey from the ground. Others move slowly and build intricate webs to catch their meals.
The question is, what types of spiders are inside your home? We can help you find out. The absolute best way to identify what species you are dealing with lies here with our team. Let us inspect your property and find out exactly what you are up against.
Spider Bite Symptoms: Warning Signs To Watch For
The good news about spiders is that these pests are typically not dangerous. Most local species are either too small to bite humans or do not have venom strong enough to cause any serious harm. Keeping this in mind, there are some species that pack a punch with their bites. If you are ever bitten by one of these pests and start to experience moderate to severe pain along with other symptoms like nausea, muscle spasms, aches, headaches, fever, chills, or restlessness, you might have a serious problem with your hands.
Fortunately, there have been no deaths related to the most common dangerous spiders in the United States in over a decade. With that in mind, seek medical attention if you ever experience any negative symptoms after a bite.
