Making sure spider populations are under control on your property is a year round task by the lakes
After what seems like the longest winter, spring is finally starting to show its’ self in Canandaigua NY. I was doing some spring-cleaning the other day and came across one of those super flashlights that I had purchased the year before but never even took out of the box. Be aware there are different spider pest control companies out there.
Now we all have at least a couple of these types of items around the house that we just buy because we think we will use it all the time. Or how about when you are at the store and in your mind you say, “Just in case, I will have it”. We have all said something alone those lines to ourselves.
So as I tried to remember why I bought it in the first place I decided to take it out of the box. I did want to try it out after all. As I took the flashlight out of its packaging I headed out to my back yard, which I was doing a major overhaul. When I say overhaul, I mean that all the grass and dirt was dug up across the whole yard. As I stood on my patio I looked into the nice crisp night. Nothing seemed to be stirring in the dark but boy was I wrong. The second I turned the light on, all I could see was what appeared to be diamonds shining all over the yard, no matter where I pointed the light, all I could see was the dirt sparkling.
Quick Fact | New York State has 48 unique species. The Yellow and Black Garden spiders are considered the largest in the state.
At first I didn’t know what to think but after a couple minutes I wiped my eyes turned the light off and on a couple times only to have the same results. I was so confused and intrigued that I had to go get my wife. I made her put her shoes on and come outside. When she tried she saw the same thing. We both stood there puzzled but the curiosity got the best of us and we had to inspect. As we got closer to all the shiny objects they all started to run (so much for those diamonds) and disappear. Thankfully we were able to put that super light to good use and spotlight one of the moving pest and much to our surprise there was this wolf spider staring at us. With the area getting disturbed this was like a playground for these guys.
