SPIDER AND ARACHNID NUISANCE CONCERNS:
In order to kill their prey, all spiders use venom, however most spiders are not venomous to humans and actual deaths from spider bites are rare. A lot of people don’t realize they have gotten bit by a spider. Against popular believe arachnophobia is not just the fear of spiders, but all arachnid. Other members of the arachnid family include scorpions, mites, ticks, harvestman, and solifuges. Spiders commonly enter homes in two primary ways: entering through open, poorly screened windows and doors and through cracks and gaps around door and window frames. Most of the time, spiders come inside the home looking for prey. The other common method of entry is accidentally hitchhiking inside boxes, on outdoor items and numerous other things that are brought inside a home or business.
A scorpion bite on the other hand is painful, comparable to a bee sting. Their venom is a neurotoxin, a chemical that affects the nervous system, which can lead to paralysis or even death. A scorpion can control its venomous production and how potent it is, depending on whether it needs to kill prey or defend itself from predators. Scorpions even have the ability to slow down their metabolism which enables them to use very little oxygen and can live on a single insect a year.
Tick bites generally don’t hurt, however they can carry bacteria, viruses, or parasites and spread illnesses. There has been a vast increase in tick transmitted disease in recent years.
