Satisfied Customers
John was very helpful in explaining how ants may be coming in to my home. He was diligent in his work and a pleasure to work with. He seemed to really put forth a great effort to help and I appreciate that. So many tech these days are just going through the motions and don't really seem to care so much about what is going on. John definetely was just the opposite and it was a refreshing change. I own a business and know what it's like to have a great employee, and you all have one!‎

Black Widows In Knoxville

Perhaps the most recognizable of all spiders in Knoxville, the Black Widow is also one the city's most hazardous. The Black Widow spider frequents dark corners, crevices, basements and garages of your home.

The female Black Widow is easy to spot with her long legs and her large, glossy black abdomen marked with a red hourglass underneath. Unlike her male counter-part, she is dangerous. She can even be deadly.

The Threat of Black Widow Bites

Most spiders in Knoxville are deemed harmless, unless of course you are talking about the Black Widow spider. The female Black Widow is actually not an aggressive spider, but Knoxville homeowners do get bit when they bump into this spider unintentionally. When she is being disturbed or when she is protecting her eggs she will attack, biting her victim and unleashing potent venom.

Upon being bit by a Knoxville Black Widow spider, a victim will experience pain, muscle cramping, abdominal pain, and tremors. Vomiting, dizziness, and chest pain can also follow a Black Widow bite. While fatalities due to a Black Widow spider bite are rare, they can happen to young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. If you are bitten by Black Widow spiders in Knoxville, seek immediate medical attention.
