Spiders are considered to be synanthropic. That means they thrive in the same environment as humans and live in and around the same structures we inhabit. There are hundreds of different types of spider, but the two that cause the most concern are the brown recluse and black widow

Standard Pests

Although bites from these two types are rare, they do happen. The venom in each is different and humans will have a different reaction

Brown Recluse

Black Widow

The brown recluse’s venom is hemotoxic and causes necrosis of the skin. This can produce a bleeding, ulcerous wound that can take a long time to heal and is prone to secondary infections

 The black widow venom contains a neurotoxin and usually causes a painful, burning sensation with localized swelling and redness

The degree of severity of these two spider bites depends on the sensitivity, health and size of victim. Fatalities are extremely rare

There are effective control measures for spiders that will greatly reduce populations

Pest Control 

Spiders, Ants, Roaches, and Bed Bugs


Ants are a social insect. They live in colonies that can number in the thousands

It's all the
worker ant's fault...

The worker ant forages for food for the colony, cares for the queen and young and defends the colony

It can range a great distance looking for food and water and is very invasive to structures

Once a food or water source is found, they lay a pheromone scent for others to follow

This is the “trail of ants” people may see on their kitchen counter

Over the last several years, ants have over taken roaches as public enemy number one

The key to effective ant control is to find the trails and treat directly. There are specialized products for the exterior and specialized baits for the interior. All of these products are target specific and extremely effective if placed and used properly


The 2 main types are the German Roach and the Oriental Roach


Although both will illicit the same response of disgust, they vary from each other on size, color and biology

The glue from the back of a postage stamp can sustain several roaches for months

Roaches are an insect that most people have ZERO tolerance for


Shaws Pest Control specializes in the location and removal of roaches




The german roach is small, fast and very adaptable. One of these can survive by eating on one human hair for months

These typically start in and around a kitchen environment and are usually carried in from an outside source

The oriental roach is large, slow and prefers to live in the damp basement, garage or exterior

People who don’t like to throw the word “roach” around loosely will refer to these as "waterbugs"

Cockroaches can pick up disease-causing bacteria, such as Salmonella, on their legs and later deposit them on foods and cause food infections or poisoning

House dust that has cockroach feces and body parts can trigger allergic reactions and asthma

They are common in basements, crawl spaces, cracks and crevices of porches, foundations, and walkways adjacent to buildings

Bedbugs need a blood meal to survive, molt, mate and for the females to lay eggs

The blood eaters

They are not considered to be a social insect, but release an aggregation pheromone that causes them to cluster

Dave has partnered with hundreds of customers to help them eliminate Bed Bugs

Crickets, Box Elders, Fleas, and Rodents
