Pass It On! Better Safe Than Sorry! Get Your Yard Treated Or This Monster Could Get You! Its That Time Of Year And They Are Coming Out Full Force!

By
Real Estate Agent with Oakstone Properties, Homes in Richmond VA

Just wanted to remind everyone to treat for the insects this time of year.  There could be some very unwelcome guests in your yard like this one that I found in mine.  There might also be some guests that you can't see...TERMITES!  It's always a good idea to get on a yearly plan with a good termite company to avoid your home getting destroyed.  Termites are everywhere.  I have seen them destroy a home to the point where the home could not be saved, and the worst part about it is that you may never know this is going on.  They get behind the sheetrock and under your home and eat away.  Here is the name and number of a well known termite and pest control company in the Richmond area that can protect you and your family from becoming a victim of termites and/or other nasty insects.

 Loyal Termite & Pest Control Inc. 2610 East Parham Road Richmond, VA 23228. Phone (804) 737-7777. Southside (804) 794-1956. West End (804) 741-3100 ...

Take a Look at this monster.  I posted this picture before, but it is an excellent example of why you should have your home treated.

Eric,

They are all over VA.  I believe it is one of the worst states for them.  I found 5 in my yard and that was without really looking hard.  This one was the biggest I found though.  I wish you the best.

Holy Cow, that one is big enough to roast!  I've heard there are two kinds of spiders in VA...The kind small enough to squeeze through the holes in the screen door, and the kind big enough to open the screen door.

Definitely call the exterminator.

We have them in NC too!  They usually like dark places.  Do you know why they are called Black Widows?  : )

Jim,

Its huge.  She was hanging out in a stump in my yard.  Black Widows have a very strong web.  I think she must have been there for a while as big as she was.  I wish you the best.

Montana Country Sweetheart,

She is very big.  You have to call the exterminator after finding one like that.

Wendy,

I do know why and lets just say that I am glad I am not a male spider that going to lay with her.  I have not met a woman yet that worth that.  I wish you the best.
