According to the Washington State Department of Health, there are two spiders of medical significance present in Spokane, Spokane Valley, and Liberty Lake, WA—the black widow spider and the yellow sac spider. They are known for having venomous bites. For those who have spider allergies, any kind of spider bite could make them ill.

Even though it’s just two venomous species, two spiders are two too many. Both species make their way indoors for various reasons. Black widows come inside because they like building their webs in dark, cluttered areas such as the basement. Yellow sac spiders wander inside human homes during the fall because they’re not a fan of the cold.

But you don’t have to accept these visitors who are dangerous to your children and pets as they innocently play and explore the house. Sure Green Lawn & Tree Service has been helping customers with spider prevention and spider removal since 1992. Our spider barrier service is a popular option for protecting your home from spiders.

The Effects of Spider Bites Include Blisters, Rashes, Muscle Pain, & More

Spider bites can range in level of severity. Those who are vulnerable or have compromised immune systems (such as children or the elderly) will likely suffer worse symptoms. Those with high blood pressure will, too, find spiders dangerous to encounter. The symptoms can also be more severe—or even deadly—if the bite comes from a more venomous spider. Black widow spiders can be an especially significant health risk, but the yellow sac spiders can also cause terrible poisoning.

Spider bite symptoms can include:

  • Itchiness and rashes
  • Swelling
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Blisters
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea
  • Fever or chills
  • High blood pressure
  • General pain

Symptoms in pets are similar, and can also include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Weak pulse or increased heart rate
  • Weakness
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Agitation

Spider pest control—from spider prevention to killing spiders—is important to protect vulnerable family members in Spokane, Spokane Valley, and Liberty Lake, WA.

What Is a Spider Barrier?

A spider barrier is a service Sure Green Lawn & Tree Service offers to customers. Our spider barrier is a 4-part repellent. We use the highest quality products, and they create an invisible wall around the external areas of your home that drives spiders away from seeking shelter in your basement or away from the cold.

We carefully spray spider barrier product along the lower two feet of all exterior walls and two feet out from the walls. The spider barrier treatment is used every six to eight weeks. For maximum effectiveness, it can be combined with other treatments and services we offer.

A spider barrier is one of the most critical parts of spider pest control. Once spiders have infiltrated your home, spider removal can become trickier and more expensive. We recommend spider barriers to customers as an affordable treatment which prevents further headaches.
