Indiana Home Found Infested With Brown Recluse Spiders

By |  July 14, 2006

The Evansville Courier and Press of Evansville, Ind., recently did an article on Jamel Sandidge of Kansas University and an industry leader on the topic of brown recluse spiders. Sandidge gave advice on how to prevent and control the dangerous arachnids:

Jamel Sandidge, a researcher at Kansas University, came to Evansville, Ind., to help Action Pest Control improve the company’s techniques in combating infestation of the brown, long-legged spider with a violin-shaped marking on its back.

He said there were probably about 200 brown recluse spiders inside one Newburgh house where he spent two hours working with Action.

But he’s seen more. Once the spiders native to this area are inside a house, he said, just one or a few can multiply into an infestation problem. Another area house he’s seen easily had more than 10,000 spiders, he said.

Read the complete story from the Evansville Courier and Press.
