Spiders have colonized all environments in the world with the exception of salt water. Even in Sri Lanka we have many species of spiders in a wide range of environments. Spiders play a significant role in the biological control of invertebrate pests. All spiders spin silk, produced from specialized glands at the tail of the abdomen called spinnerets. Frequently many threads are spun together, each one being perhaps less than one hundredth of a millimeter in diameter. The liquid silk pulled into threads is spun together. The liquid silk pulled into threads dries chemically, rather than due to the action of air and weight for weight is considerably stronger than steel.

EXTERMINATORS SPIDER CONTROL

Every situation is unique, there is no single spider control program that will work in all cases. That’s why you need a ‘Exterminators Pest Spcialist’ with the experience and the tools to find the right one for you. Exterminators Spider Control begins by identifying the breeding and harborage areas. Combination of methods and tools will be carried to treat fly infestation.

 Initial inspection to identify the breeding and harboring areas

 Recomendation to improve sanitation

 Recomendation to prevent spider entry

 Design strategic spider management plan

 Implemetation of the spider management stratergy

 Follow-up and continues monitoring process

SPIDER FACTS

 Fear of spiders is called Arachnophobia

 It is one of the most common fears among humans

 Spiders are not insects. Insects have three body parts and six legs

 Spiders have eight legs and two body parts, the abdomen and the thorax

 Not all spiders spin webs. Spiders belong to the Arachnid family

 There are more than 30,000 species of spiders

 Most spiders have either six or eight eyes

 Spider bites can be quite painful, and a select few can be fatal

 Spiders eat many types of harmful insects, helping to keep your garden free of pests

 Webs get dirty and torn, so lots of spiders make a new one every day

 They don’t waste the old one, though–they roll it up into a ball and eat it!

 Young spiders resemble adults. Only their size and coloration differ

 Male spiders are usually smaller than female spiders

 The largest spider in the world is the Giant Bird-eating spider. One that was found had a leg span of 28 cm (11 inches)!

 The smallest spider is the Patu Marplesi. You could fit 10 of them on the end of a pencil

 Spider silk is possibly the strongest material in the world!

 Scientists believe that if they gathered the same weight of spider web as a piece of steel, the web would be much stronger than the steel!

 As hard as scientists try, they cannot match or copy the silk.

DUST MITES

Dust Mites are microscopic creatures that live in your bedding by the millions and cause allergies. Dust mites do not bite in the sense that they do not inflict a wound to obtain food. Dust mites feed exclusively on the dead skin cells that we shed every day in the form of dandruff and other flakes and particles. They are essentially scavengers, not predators or parasites.

FLEAS

There around 2380 species of fleas worldwide. Fleas are small & very specialized, adult fleas are blood suckers, the majority feeding on mammals & some feeding on birds. Fleas transmit disease from animals to humans. Historically, bubonic plague has claimed untold millions of human life. (The “Black Death” that occurred in the middle ages in Europe).

FLEA FACTS

 Fleas are vectors of Bubonic Plague, carried from rodents to humans when they suck our blood

 In an epidemic in Europe in the 14th Century 25,000,000 people died from the disease

 That was over one-third of the entire population of that continent

 This epidemic was part of a worldwide epidemic 1347 to 1351 over 75 million people died around the world

 It epidemic reached Sri Lanka in 1367, killing thousands

TICKS

Although ticks are commonly thought of as insects, they are actually arachnids like scorpions, spiders and mites. All members of this group have four pairs of legs as adults and have no antennae. Adult insects have three pairs of legs and one pair of antennae. Ticks are among the most efficient carriers of disease because they attach firmly when sucking blood, feed slowly and may go unnoticed for a considerable time while feeding. Ticks take several days to complete feeding.

CENTIPEDES

Worldwide there are estimated to be 8,000 species of centipede of which 3,000 have been described. Centipedes have a wide geographical range, reaching beyond the Arctic Circle. Centipedes are found in an array of terrestrial habitats from tropical rainforests to deserts.

Within these habitats centipedes require a moist micro-habitat because they lack the waxy cuticle of insects and arachnids, and so lose water rapidly through the skin. Accordingly, they are found in soil and leaf litter, under stones and dead wood, and inside logs. Centipedes are among the largest terrestrial invertebrate predators and often contribute significantly to the invertebrate predatory biomass in terrestrial ecosystems

CATERPILLARS

Caterpillars are the larvae of butterflies and moths. Many are major pests but several merely make us curious as to what they are doing. There are many types of caterpillars and they feed in or on a broad array of trees and shrubs. Some are simple leaf feeders and others bore in tips or are leaf miners. Most feeding by caterpillars takes place in the later instars as they approach maturity. Small caterpillars are easier to control.
