Brown Recluse Spiders

How do I get rid of Brown Recluse spiders?

OPC has a dedicated Brown recluse spider program.  Our program is not your typical service.  Our service is extremely thorough and typically takes several hours to complete.  We will meticulously treat all areas the spiders frequent.  We treat all the areas of the home including the attic with different pesticides to achieve the greatest results.

We will place monitoring glue boards throughout to record the level of activity and to identify any potential hot spots.

Brown recluse is not a do-it-yourself project.  Request your free inspection and estimate.  Our service is backed by a Brown recluse spider service agreement.

Characteristics of the Brown Recluse

What Do Brown Recluse Spiders Look Like?

Brown recluse spiders are one of two poisonous spiders in our area.  It is sometimes referred to as a ‘fiddleback’ or ‘violin’ spider due to the identifiable violin marking.  The color can vary from tan to dark brown.

Where Do Brown Recluse Spiders Live?

Brown recluse live outdoors under logs, woodpiles, debris and rocks.

Brown recluse can live virtually anywhere indoors.  They are commonly identified in attics and are resilient to survive in the winter in unheated basements and garages.

what about their habits?

They given their name due to their reclusive nature and prefer to retreat to dark and secluded areas especially during daylight hours.  They will hunt at night in search for dead or alive insect prey.

Are Brown Recluse Spiders Dangerous?

While brown recluse spiders are not aggressive they are one of two poisonous spiders in our area.  They most commonly bite in response to body pressure when they are inadvertently trapped against bare skin.  Bites are commonly misdiagnosed.  In rare circumstances a necrotic-like sore could result (too gross to show here). 

The fangs of brown recluse are very small and will not allow them to bite through clothing.

"I have the Four Seasons plan with OPC. I am so pleased with this. I had a problem with big black ants and this plan has gotten rid of them. I have peace of mind about pests now."
Pamela Troutman
"We have been OPC customers for several years. They check for termites and we also have the internal check for bugs. They have immediately responded when we have had a problem especially with silverfish. This year we added the mosquito control. The mosquito population is definitely down and a side benefit is we have no flies this year. OPC is easy to deal with and professional in dealing with our pests. Watch out bugs, we are OPC customers.” "

She informed me of what she was applying in terms of chemicals and how it was child and pet friendly and the process of getting rid of the ants.
