How To Prepare for Black Widow Season in Las Vegas

As the weather starts to warm up in Las Vegas, so does the activity of black widow spiders. These venomous spiders can pose a serious health risk to humans, so it’s important to take steps to prepare your home and property for black widow season. 

In this post, we’ll take a closer look at how to prepare for black widow season in Las Vegas, and what you can do to keep yourself and your family safe.

1. Know what black widows look like:

Black widows are shiny black spiders with a distinctive red hourglass marking on their abdomen. They are typically found in dark, secluded areas such as garages, sheds, and crawl spaces.

2. Check your home for potential entry points:

Black widows can enter your home through small cracks and gaps in doors, windows, and walls. Seal up any potential entry points to keep them out.

3. Keep your property clean and clutter-free:

Black widows are attracted to cluttered and dark areas. Keep your property clean and free of debris to discourage them from taking up residence.

4. Use caution when working in dark, secluded areas:

When working in areas where black widows may be present, such as garages and sheds, wear gloves and protective clothing.

5. Use residual Black Widow repellent:

Applying insect repellent can help keep black widows and other spiders away. Often “over the counter” products won’t be effective enough.

6. Hire a pest control professional:
