spiders, pests


Spiders are very common throughout the United States, and are easily recognized by most people.  At Georgetown Pest Control we have developed practices to eliminate these pests in and around your property.  Spiders prefer dimly lit areas that are seldom disturbed by people.  Although all spiders use venom when they bite and kill their prey, there are only a couple of documented spiders that are dangerous to people.  The two dangerous spiders in our area are the Black Widow Spider and the Brown Recluse Spider.  The female Black Widow Spider can be recognized their globular, shiny black abdomen with two reddish or yellow triangles on their abdomen.  The Brown Recluse Spider is yellow to dark brown in color, and has a  darker brown violin mark on top of the cephalothorax.
