Arachnophobic workers raising concerns about spiders at your business? The NJ pest control pros at Stern want you to understand the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of a building that hosts spiders.
Benefits of Spiders
Spiders help control populations of other nuisance insects in your business by eating ants, cockroaches, mosquitoes, flies, moths, aphids, earwigs, and other smaller spiders. One spider can consumer 2,000 per year. This helps stop the spread of diseases and reduce the number of crop-destructive pests. Because of these benefits, leading arachnid researchers cite the absence of spiders could lead to famine.
Drawbacks of Spiders
Before you put pest control measures on hold, however, be forewarned. Hosting spiders isn’t ideal. Buildings that have spiders most likely host other insects, which act as a food source to draw the arachnids in.
Though most species are not poisonous, all spiders bite. Spider bites can cause large, painful welts, which if not medically treated can lead to complications. Eliminating spiders reduces this risk. Spider webs can also make the work environment look worn and unkempt to potential customers, effecting your reputation.
While beneficial in some instances, spiders do not make for good coworkers. Eliminate and prevent spiders and the nuisance insects attracting them to your business with the help of the NJ pest control experts at Stern Environmental. Contact us to learn more today.
