Eliminating Common Pests from your Home

• Colour varies from light brown to black, legs are small and  the abdomen (stomach) is big. Black button spiders are more venomous than brown button spiders.
• They’re often found around and in the house, beneath window sills, garden furniture and post-boxes.
• Their bites are usually very painful. Symptoms can include nausea, sweating, muscle pain, cramps and weakness in your legs.
• You should seek immediate medical assistance, as most cases require anti-venom.
c. Sac and violin spiders
• Sac spiders are yellow to light brown but are slightly shiny and bigger in size while violin have extremely long legs and are brown in colour with the stomach being bigger than the head.
• You’re most likely to find these spiders at night and they’re often found in the folds of curtains, under clothes, behind picture frames and in the dark corners of cupboards and drawers. They have cytotoxic venom – the bite is painless and looks like a mosquito bite.
• After a few days, swelling may develop which is painful and eventually forms a large lesion. No anti-venom is available, but you’ll need to get antibiotics to treat the lesion and to prevent infection and tissue damage.

Mosquitoes: Known as the most dangerous insects in the world, mosquitoes can carry malaria, West Nile virus, encephalitis, dengue fever, yellow fever, Zika and more.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches are a health threat because they commonly come in contact with humans after they emerge from unsanitary areas such as garbage storage, sewage systems and septic tanks. They can carry salmonella into your kitchen, which can cause food poisoning and gastroenteritis. Cockroaches can also induce asthma attacks and cause pneumonia.
Rodents: Rodents can chew through wires and cause damage to appliances and electronics. They also have the potential to carry and rapidly transport diseases. Rodents are known to transmit diseases such as hantavirus which can lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome.​
