Pest Control 24-7 False Black Widow Spider Service
The False Black Widow spider is one species that has been accidentally imported into the United Kingdom.
It is native to the South West Mediterranean, including Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands.
Although related to the Black Widow, it is a less venomous spider. It is not a particularly aggressive spider, but it can bite. This species can adapt to the British climate and there are reports of it becoming established along the South Coast.
The female False Black Widow is of similar appearance to the Black Widow, a relatively small spider, the female body length being 10-15mm, the male only 3-6mm. The False Black Widow are shiny black and globular like the Black Widow, but they lack the characteristic red double triangle or hourglass marking.
Pest Control 24-7 can offer different treatment methods depending on the size of infestation.
An insecticide ULV fogging machine or smoke generator can be applied to voids such as lofts whilst a residual insecticide spray may be applied around windows, ceilings and walls.
The insecticide lasts for up to 3 months and the spiders will absorb the insecticide as they walk over it. All treatments carried out adhere to COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Heath) Regulations 2002.
Although venomous, Noble False Black Widow bites are not fatal. But the swelling can be substantial, with inflammation lasting for several days. A dry necrotic wound may form after the inflammation subsides. The bite may become extremely itchy.
