Pest Control during seasons changing is vitally important to keeping your home pest free. Kansas City experiences four distinct seasons and the creepy crawly pests take advantage of our temperate homes and businesses when they don’t like the outdoor weather.
Spider bites happen more frequently this time of year as people winterize RVs, clean out sheds, or are bringing out hunting gear or Christmas decorations from their attics or basement storage areas. Any place that hasn’t been visited for a while is a good place for a spider to hide, and since we in Kansas City are often frequenting those during the cooler months, it’s important to keep up on your pest control efforts.
Missouri is right at the middle of brown recluse bite map. If you have gotten bit and were not able to identify the spider, you don’t need to get too worried. What you should be concerned about is the appearance of the wound. Any drastic changes. These include swelling of extremities, darkening of the wound or expansion of would site. If left untreated even for only a few days, some brown recluse bites may need surgical intervention accompanied by hyperbaric chamber therapy.
During the winter months, Milberger will focus keeping a firm perimeter around the interior of your home so any pests that cross that will be killed on contact. Reducing the spider’s food source (aka other bugs) will mean spiders are less likely to enter or stay in your home to survive. Milberger will also place sticky traps and insect baiting treatments for less chemical methods of controlling spiders and their food supply.
