The Itsy Bitsy Spider

admin 18 Aug, 2018

I was 18 years old in Army basic training, having just come back to the barracks from a field training exercise. As always, we were beaten and worn from days of living in the most basic of conditions, exposed to the unforgiving natural state of the elements and wildlife alike. Before we could see our first shower in over a week, there was one thing standing between the platoon and our long sought running hot water- equipment cleanup.

Hurriedly, we sped through the cleaning of all equipment, with our first hot meal in a week invading our senses from the chow hall nearby. The entire platoon systematically rummaged through the heap of sorted equipment consisting mainly of tent parts. I chose my target- piping used to support the canvas of the tent. I nearly stuck my finger in the pipe, but decided to clear the equipment of dirt by banging it on the floor first. To my dismay, out came a black widow spider.

Spiders are predators of other insects and their webs act as perfect traps to allow a pest control professional to check for nearby pest activity. The residential pest control of spiders can normally be accomplished through vacuuming of webbing and live spiders. Identifying spiders in New Jersey is important prior to interacting with a potentially dangerous spider. A pest control professional can best identify the invading arachnid and suggest the method to get rid of spiders. A pest control spray can be helpful around the perimeter of your home.
