Why Spiders Are So Dangerous To Virginians
Most spider species in the Chesapeake area are relatively harmless to humans and pets. Although all spiders possess both fangs and venom, they rarely, if ever, affect our health in a meaningful way. However, there are exceptions to the rule. Virginian home and business owners are at risk for black widow and brown recluse activity, two arachnids with a history of deadly bites.
Protecting your Northern Virginia home against potential spider infestations begins with you. Eliminating infestations already inside your property ends with Hawk Mosquito & Pest. As a BBB A+ accredited organization, our technicians use a combination of Integrated Pest Management, professional treatments, and education to eliminate spider infestations for good.

- Wipe spider webs away from the sides, corners, and crevices of the home.
- Control interior moisture levels, and be sure to repair clogged drains and leaky pipes.
