Big brown spiders and Green spiders
Far Hills to Mahwah to both Unions spiders are all over the place. We are getting numerous calls regarding spiders. Big brown spiders, which are usually a wolf spider, making large webs that intimidate people. These are sometimes the most problematic because once seen people want them gone. Like now! We understand. There is currently a very prevalent metallic green spider proliferating . Rarely does a property only have one or a couple. When this spider shows up it seems to be always in a crowd. Spiders do not have one baby at a time like people, they have around 500 at a time. When the new spiders come out and are carried by the wind they may end up anywhere. Homes with a regular service plan are usually safe because there is a protective barrier in place to discourage and eliminate new infestations. Properties without pest service may find the spiders setting up home and quickly multiplying. Spider webs AKA cob webs are kept clean by spiders and when the spider is no longer around dirt collects on the filaments with stickum. This is a sign of an old web that should be removed, cloth or a broom will do. If you are curious as to how the spider knows which filaments have stickum and which are safe to walk on, the radial filaments ( the filaments that run from the center outward) have no stickum and the filaments in the concentric circle pattern are sticky.
