Insect scientists are probably the only people immensely interested in spiders. The average person doesn’t even want to think about them. They creep people out with their long legs and sticky webs. Most of all, they carry venom and can bite. They don’t call a lot of attention to themselves, so they kind of catch you by surprise. Understandably, Oakland residents don’t want to put much thought into spiders, but they may want to reconsider. Spider control should be on every home and business owner’s mind.
