Black widow

Black Widow control in arizona

Black widows are a venomous spider species that are found in Arizona. They are most commonly found in the southern part of the state, particularly in desert and semi-arid areas. Black widow spiders are typically identified by their shiny, jet-black bodies and distinctive red or orange hourglass-shaped markings on the underside of their abdomen.

Black widows are known for their potent venom, which is toxic to humans and can cause serious symptoms, particularly in children and the elderly. Symptoms of a black widow spider bite may include intense pain, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting, and difficulty breathing. In rare cases, a black widow bite can be fatal.

Black widows are not aggressive and will only bite if they feel threatened or provoked. They are generally found in dark, sheltered areas such as woodpiles, garages, and sheds, where they can spin their webs and capture prey.

To prevent black widow infestations in Arizona, homeowners should take steps to eliminate sources of shelter and food for spiders around their homes, such as sealing cracks and crevices, removing debris and clutter from around the yard, and eliminating insects and other small animals that may serve as prey for spiders. If a black widow infestation is suspected, it is best to contact a professional pest control company to assess the situation and develop a treatment plan. It is also important to exercise caution when working or reaching into areas where black widows may be present, such as woodpiles and other dark, sheltered areas.

for five star reviews!

He arrived on time (actually 10 minutes early), was extremely professional, and handled and/or inspected every area of the property without prompting. I have not seen one single spider, silverfish, ant, etc. in the week since Wes was here, inside or on the patios. I would recommend West Coast Pest Control for ANY issues with pests. Great company, great work ethic.

He worked efficiently and quickly dealt with a pretty big hive that was hidden from view. He also gave me a guarantee for several days that if I see any activity in the area where the hive was, he will come back and respray. Excellent service and very professional. Will definitely use for any future bug needs I might have. Highly recommend!

I live in New York and needed advice on how to protect my clothing inventory from pests . Wesley took my call , even though he knew I would be unable to give him business as I live on the east coast . He was informative and knowledgeable and really cares about people who need questions answered . Thank you and I would recommend this company as a first choice to anyone.

Professional, friendly, prompt, thorough, and.....NO CONTRACTS! I called several reputable places to get some quotes for scorpion infestation, and they pretty much all wanted to lock me into a contract, in addition to charging a high initial fee. I called West Coast and spoke with Wes who was friendly and extremely professional.

Wes is awesome. I had a swarm of bees in my backyard and Wes showed up within 45 minutes and took care of my issue. He showed up with a great personality also. Thank you
