LONG BODIED CELLAR SPIDER (DADDY LONG LEGS) PEST CONTROLSpiders are arachnids, not insects.

Spiders don’t bite people very often. There is a belief that spiders come into your bed and bite you during the night and they all use webs. Not all spiders spin these silk structures to catch their prey. In fact, several species of spiders use different strategies for obtaining food.

Long-bodied cellar spiders are commonly referred to as “daddy-long-legs” because of their very long, thin legs, and as their name implies, are found in dark and damp places like cellars and basements.

Diet: American cockroaches will eat just about anything, including plants and other insects.
Habitat: Although American cockroaches can be found in homes, they are also common in larger commercial buildings, such as restaurants, grocery stores and hospitals.
Impact: Cockroaches crawl through dirty areas and then walk around our homes tracking in lots of bacteria and germs. They can contaminate food by shedding their skins. Their cast off skin and waste byproducts are allergens that can trigger allergic reactions, asthma and other illnesses, especially in children.
Prevention:

  1. Keep cooking, eating and food storage areas clean and dry.
  2. Act at once due to the illness they can spread
