Encountering a tarantula on your Deming property can be a frightening experience, but with the proper prevention and control steps, you can safely eliminate infestations of this pest. Deming pest control is available to help you out when it comes to removing tarantulas and providing you with advice on keeping this arachnid away for good.

The Docile, Not Deadly Tarantula

Despite the tarantula's large and somewhat frightening appearance, this spider is not one of the most dangerous pests in Deming. Tarantulas are generally docile by nature and are unlikely to attack humans. This spider is more interested in hiding out and hunting insects than it is in getting close to humans; most tarantula encounters with humans happen by accident when this spider sets up its home too close to human-inhabited areas. 

Tarantula bites are unlikely to cause significant health issues or even hurt unless you have preexisting allergy issues. If you have trouble breathing or swallowing after receiving a bite, always seek medical attention. But again, it's rare for a tarantula to get close enough to a human to bite in the first place.

Where Tarantulas Most Frequently Build Nests

While you may see tarantulas sometimes inside Deming properties, this pest prefers to make its nests outside. They live in small holes in the ground, choosing to use their web to establish their nesting sight rather than capturing prey. Areas sheltered by potted plants, foliage, or other debris are favorites for tarantulas who prefer their living areas to be secluded and out of the way of potential danger.

Around your property, you are likely to find tarantulas nests in the corners around decks and patios, behind plants or potted items, in boxes, or around shrubs and lawn ornaments.
