Brown Recluse Spider Bites

Do brown recluse spiders bite?

Yes.  They do not attack people or pets, but bite out of instinct when threatened.  Most often, they bite when accidentally pressed against, such as when a person inadvertently puts their foot in a shoe where a spider is hiding.

Are brown recluse spiders poisonous?

Yes.  Brown recluse spiders are poisonous and their bites cause a minor reaction to most.  Some, like children under the age of 7 or people with compromised immune systems, can have more severe reactions.  Most common symptoms are redness and pain at the injection site within a few hours, followed by itching and possibly nausea.  Some people develop a painful necrotic lesion from a bite. 

What should I do if I think I've been bitten by a brown recluse spider?

 

If you think you've been bitten by a brown recluse spider, stay calm.  Apply ice to the wound to reduce swelling, and if possible, capture the spider and keep it in a jar for identification later.  Most brown recluse bites resolve themselves without medical attention.  You may not notice much of a reaction for several hours.  After about 4 hours you may begin to feel the effects of the bite, like a burning or aching sensation at the area of injection.  You may also feel some minor flu-like symptoms such as nausea, fever or vomiting.  Seek medical care if these symptoms do not improve or if your wound becomes a lesion.  After you’ve taken care of yourself, call a pest control professional like Ace Walco and rid your home of brown recluse spiders.

Walked into my kitchen in the middle of the night and saw a mouse or something. Fussed around with traps for a couple weeks then realized I needed pro help. Thanks Sasha at Ace for helping me get rid of them!

They have come every time I've called. I have had numerous problems and two techs weren't taking care of it so I called and lou said he would send his top guy and he sure did. Walter borda came out and took extensive time to show me why I was having certain issues and worked diligently to
Make sure every detail was paid attention to and did things the other techs hadn't done the times before He is super friendly and hard working. I wish he didn't live so far away because he is amazing. Great job Walter you're the best by far

I called this company in a panic a couple of days ago because I had ants coming into my house. Some had wings! A real person answered the phone. She gave me some good advice over the phone with no pressure to book a visit. But I went ahead because my problem was freaking me out. The technician named Javier came promptly this morning. He was thorough and he explained everything.He was knowledgeable and calm. Now I am so relieved. Price for the service was under other estimates I'd been given.

Natasha did an inspection today.....and she is the most pleasant, knowledgable and helpful person I could have had for this job. She put my mind at ease since I have not had an inspection since Ace Walco did it many years ago. I would recommend your company to anyone who needs this service. It was a most complete inspection by a most delightful person.

Excellent overall experience with Ace Walco commencing with Devon, the representative who performed a thorough inspection, followed by Kim, who answered my questions and scheduled a convenient and timely appointment and finally Hector, the technician who promptly eradicated the hornet problem. Every member of the Ace Walco team was knowledgeable, patient, considerate and a consummate professional! Pricing was fair and the ValPak coupon was accepted without a problem. I purchased the TriPak Program and believe it to be very cost effective. Kudos and my sincere appreciation for a job well done!!!

I was devastated when I found out we had bed bugs, but Devon was my savior for helping me through the process like an expert. He walked me through each step with patience and understanding of the position I was in. I contacted several other pest control companies and all were pushing chemical this, chemical that. But Devon showed me there was another option--the heat treatment. It was new to me, but he explained it well and now I am bed bug free and not ashamed to go out any more. Thanks guys for all your help!

We realized for the first time in 5 years since living here that there was an issue with mice. We placed a call and a rep not only was at our house with an estimate the next day-but was able to start step 1 in an effort to take care of the problem on HIS visit. I signed up immediately for his Tri Pak plan which covered for many issues (such as ants, bees, carpenter ants, any bug or rodent really) for $500.00 LESS than those other companies you see value pak coupons for!! My mother recommended them highly and now I would. Thank You Ace Walco!!!!
