Spiders can be your best friend. They eat other spiders and insects that you might not want crawling around your home. But, some spiders are dangerous and can cause harm to your family. That’s why, here at Miller Pest & Termite, we included brown recluse and black widow elimination as part of our pest control—no additional packages needed. Our team of pest exterminators even goes the extra mile by sweeping cobwebs around your home at the end of your service. Types of spiders that are common in the Midwest are:
The brown recluse spider is an unusual arachnid. Whereas most spiders have eight eyes, the recluse only has six. While they don’t typically attack humans, if provoked they may lash out to protect themselves—but they can take any movement in their vicinity as a threat.
The brown recluse is a pretty easy spider to identify. It has a violin-shaped marking on its body that’s always a deeper brown than the rest of its body. If the spider isn’t brown or if the legs are a darker shade of brown than the body, it’s not a brown recluse.
The brown recluse will rarely just “crawl” into your home, they prefer to ride in on boxes or furniture from other infested areas. A female brown recluse only needs to mate once in her entire life to continue to produce eggs, producing 150 or more young in a given year. All your home needs is just one female spider to hitchhike their way into your home for you to have a brow recluse spider infestation on your hands.
Because the brown recluse is venomous, we don’t recommend you handle an infestation yourself. Successful remediation of brown recluse spiders also needs a multi-pronged approach, treatment methods that focus on one method of control, such as just spraying, won’t work. If you see brown recluse spiders in your home, give Miller a call today at 515-518-8864.
Not all spiders in the widow category are black. But, the adult females of the three major species are almost always shiny and black with the familiar red hourglass shape on their backs. Male black widows aren’t considered dangerous but the bite of a female, often described as a “pin-prick” sensation, contains a venom that can be painful to humans. Children, the sick, and the elderly should be especially careful around black widow spiders.
Unlike the brown recluse, the black widow would much rather run away than fight a potential attacker. Most bites occur when the black widow has been touched or pinned against something. For safe removal, contact Miller Pest & Termite today by calling us at 515-518-8864 or contacting us online!

Carpet beetles, while not directly harmful to humans, can cause you a great deal of frustration. If your home has a carpet beetle infestation, you might find small holes chewed in your clothing or other fabrics around your home, like couches or drapes.
There are many different species of carpet beetles that call the Midwest home, but typically we get calls about two: the black carpet beetles and the varied carpet beetle. The easiest way to tell the difference between them is their coloring. The black carpet beetle is black and shiny while the varied carpet beetle is splotched with black, brown, white, and yellow coloring. The adults typically prefer to live outside in wooded areas but are attracted to the lights our homes give off. They’ll slip into your home and lay their eggs near food sources. Once the larvae hatch, they’ll turn your home into a feast!
