Easily recognisable by their eight legs, some people happily accept the presence of spiders whilst others cannot bear the thought of them. Although spiders are mostly beneficial to our environment, many people do have an inherent fear of them, known as arachnophobia. This causes feelings of uneasiness at the mere sight of spiders, which in its extreme can lead to excessive sweating, crying and panic attacks.
Thankfully, most species of spiders found in the UK are not considered dangerous and are not pests. However, we do have extensive experience of dealing with spiders from Asia & South America that have entered properties and warehouses via stock. The few that may bite very rarely do. If bitten by a spider, it often has very little effect on most people, while a few species can cause an exceptional reaction due to their venom.
Our specialists are well trained in providing professional solutions to spider infestations in your home or business, using professional and approved methods that are best suited to the scale of the infestation and the surrounding environment.
Spider Species & Description
Below are some common species of spider that you may encounter in you home or business;
False widow spider - False widows (steatoda sp.) are sometimes confused for black widow spiders (latrodectus sp.) and are mistakenly thought to be as dangerous. Both have a similar dark-coloured, globular body.
Harvestman - The harvestman is very distinctive with a round, compact body and extremely long legs. Although it looks like a long-legged spider, it isn't one. It is one of the opilones, a group of arachnids closely related to spiders.
Giant house spider - The giant house spider has been treated as either one species, under the name Eratigena atrica, or as three species, E. atrica, E. duellica and E. saeva.
Zebra jumping spider - The zebra spider (salticus scenicus) is a common jumping spider of the Northern Hemisphere. Like other jumping spiders it does not build a web. It has a particularly large pair of forward facing eyes that help it to locate and stalk its prey before pouncing on it.
There are more than 35,000 species of spiders worldwide, but approximately only 650 of these are found in the UK. Several spiders are mistaken for the rather deadly black widow spider. These lookalikes are often grouped together as false black widow spiders. While these spiders are venomous and their bites can be very painful, they're no more dangerous than a wasp sting and the spiders are non-aggressive.

“ Both me and my mum are so scared of spiders. Have had M.E.S come out once a year to spray the house. They always do a fantastic job and they are such a friendly, nice bunch of people. Made our house a home again. ”
