Specialists in Spider Removal
Although spiders do a lot of good through natural insect control, in particular predating on over-wintering queen wasps, there is no question that there is a general fear of them.
In one or two instances you without a doubt don’t want them around, and one of those is the case of the false widow spider. This spider is certainly ‘on the march’ in the UK and although most reports often tend to be from the Southern Counties, reports are popping up from other areas too, including Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. Although its bite is by no means as nasty as that of the black widow, they do give an unpleasant venomous bite with the pain said to be similar to that of a wasp or bee sting. The bite of this spider and others of the genus Steatoda can also produce symptoms known Steatodism in which the victim exhibits an extreme pain radiating from the bite, along with fever and general malaise. To puts it simply, something to avoid if you can! The False Widow constructs a scaffold style web of tremendous strength, normally including a tubular hole into which is retreats. They have poor eyesight and rely on vibration to latch onto their prey.
The false widow spider has a brown body and legs with a shiny appearance, and has distinct cream markings on its bulbous body. The creamy markings are frequently likened to a skull shape. Females (9.5-14mm) are slightly bigger than males (7-11mm), and their bites are considerably worse!!
Do not attempt to rid your house of false widow or other biting spiders– if in any doubt, call a professional. Treatment involves a combination of physical collection, web destruction and the use of professional strength insecticidal sprays with a powerful residual.
