Pests We Treat Photo Album: Multiple Black Widows Found in Our Bait Stations in Marlboro, NJ
Another reason why we always have to careful when checking our rodent bait stations!
One Black Widow
As we were replenishing the bait in our rodent bait stations, we found not just one black widow spider...
Two Black Widows
Black widows are black in color with two reddish triangular markings that look like an hourglass.
Black Widow Egg Sacs
Black widow eggs sacs can be recognized for their grey and spherical appearance, and are generally around 9 mm in diameter. Each egg sac contains an average of 255 eggs inside!
Stronger Than a Rattlesnake
Their venom is reported to be 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake! Fortunately, they only bite humans when they are disturbed.
Treatment for the Black Widows
We applied a knockdown liquid application directly to the black widows. This treatment will rapidly exterminate them. Lastly, we replenished the bait in the bait stations and then performed a crack and crevice treatment around the entire exterior of the building with a residual application that is specifically labeled to eliminate spiders.
