Spiders are arthropods that live in the corners of the most hidden places in our house. Many times while cleaning our home we have found nests of these animals, or we have come across spider webs. Although most spiders are harmless, discovering a spider web in your home can be an unsettling experience.
A common misconception is that “if you get bitten by a spider you will die”. Not all spiders are poisonous. Among those that are, we have the black widow, tiger spider or tarantula. These arachnids have a deadly venom for people and other animals. Therefore, we must be very careful. If you see these types of spiders in your home, you should contact the fumigation company in Pespro.
The black widow spider is one of the few venomous spiders found in the United States (venom is a type of poison). It is part of the arachnid family, which includes not just spiders, but ticks, mites, and scorpions, too. Its body is about one-half inch long (smaller than a dime), and it has long legs. The black widow spider is shiny and black with a red-orange or yellow mark in the shape of an hourglass on its stomach.
Black widow spiders and their relatives can be found almost anywhere in the Western hemisphere of the world in damp and dark places. Their favorite places are woodpiles, tree stumps, trash piles, storage sheds, fruit and vegetable gardens, in stone walls, and under rocks.
If they come inside, they will go to dark places like corners of closets, garages, or behind furniture. They are shy by nature and bite only when trapped, sat on, or accidentally touched.
The bite of this spider is greatly feared because its venom is 15 times more potent than that of the rattlesnake. In humans, it causes muscle pain, nausea and paralysis of the diaphragm, which can make breathing difficult. However, contrary to what many people think, most people do not suffer serious harm, let alone death. The bite can only be lethal if suffered by young children, the elderly or the sick. Fortunately, fatalities are quite rare; spiders are not aggressive and only bite in self-defense.
Although black widow spider bites are rarely deadly, it is important to get medical attention as soon as possible because they can cause some problems.
But first, you can wash the bite thoroughly with soap and water. Then apply an ice cube to the bite to reduce the spread of the venom. Try to elevate the area and keep it still to prevent the venom from spreading.

Certification of our products
At PesPro, we recognize the important role of pest control in ensuring that pharmaceutical manufacturers can exceed the most stringent regulatory requirements for the manufacture of their products.
Meridiana has developed the preventive pest management service to provide the highest level of peace of mind that pharmaceutical products will not be exposed to contamination risks and provide the information to demonstrate full compliance with regulatory standards.
The principle is to create one or more protective barriers to minimize the risks of pests approaching clean areas. These barriers are regularly inspected to maintain their impenetrability and ensure complete protection.
Our specialist service technicians and biologists will work with you in the field to define effective defenses and advise you on work practices and procedures to reduce the risk of a pest entering the facility or becoming a problem.
With each ongoing visit, we’ll treat outside your home, fortifying the perimeter. And if you request, we’ll treat inside your home again.
We have a rapid response to any signs of pest activity, as well as pest control and elimination, ensuring that the source of the pest is identified in order to prevent future infestations.
