Believe it or not, spiders are beneficial to ecosystems. They can eliminate a multitude of annoying and dangerous insect pests on your property. However, spiders that get inside homes are not so beneficial and are not welcome guests, for a number of reasons. One reason is fear, which is common because spiders can move quickly and drop down from out of nowhere. Some spiders are large and hairy too, not to mention extremely creepy looking.

A spider infestation is usually an indication of a more serious issue that will need to be addressed. Not only will you need to get rid of the spiders, but also the insects that they are feeding on. Complete eradication of these pests can give you peace of mind that your home is not being invaded throughout the year.

There are more than 3,000 spider species in the United States. New Castle is host to a good number of them. But most of them are considered harmless. Wolf spiders and house spiders are the most common spiders that you will encounter in New Castle. Although the name is ominous, wolf spiders only look scary and have a few characteristics similar to wolves, like hunting in packs. They do not carry enough venom to cause any serious reactions when they bite. House spiders can be found all over, spinning unsightly webs to catch their prey. If you have cobwebs popping up in the corners of your house, you probably have ordinary house spiders. There are some more dangerous spiders in New Castle that can be harmful. They are the black widow spider and the brown recluse spider, and they come from packages and boxes that come from out of state. Black widow spider venom can cause serious health problems and a bite from a brown recluse spider can result in tissue damage. In either case, if you think you have been bitten by one of these spiders, you should seek medical attention immediately.

If you were to do an internet search on how to get rid of spiders, you will find that everyone has ideas, opinions, and DIY methods that claim to get rid of any pest that you are looking to eliminate. Unfortunately, these often can't get to the root of a spider problem or keep the problem from returning. The best solution is to enlist the help of a professional pest control service in your area.
