Getting Rid of Spiders with Sterifab

A Bit About Spiders

There are over 45,000 species of spiders and they inhabit nearly every continent on our planet. Their closest relatives are other arachnids including scorpions, mites and ticks.

Every spider produces venom, but only a select few species pose a threat to humans. In the United States, the most common poisonous spiders are black widows and brown recluse spiders. Dangerous or not, spiders often find their way into man-made structures and can be hard to get rid of.
