Are there Black Widow Spiders in Surprise AZ?

Black Widow Spiders In Surprise AZBlack widow spiders are definitely in Surprise AZ and everywhere else in the Phoenix area. This is one of the few spiders in Arizona that are poisonous to humans and pose a legitimate health threat should a bite occur. Never handle black widows – alive or dead (just in case) – and avoid spider webs – especially the ones that are messy, don’t follow any sort of pattern, are very sticky and crackle when when moved with a stick. They can show up in your yard overnight so always check the yard closely before letting children or pets outside. Black Widows, like most species of spiders, don’t have great eye sight and rely mostly on feel and vibration. So if their web is disturbed it’s possible they may come out in attack mode, which is not good for the little ones especially.

Always let your pest control professional know if you think you may have a black widow spider on your property. If you think someone was bitten you should call Poison Control immediately at: 800-222-1222.
