Spider Elimination Kit (5 traps)
Spider Trap for poisonous Hobo and Brown Recluse Spiders. Each kit contains five traps.
Hobo Spider Information SheetThe Hobo Spider is one of the most dangerously venomous spiders in the United States. The Hobo’s "stronghold territory" ranges from extreme southern Alaska through southern B.C. and Alberta Canada to central and southern California, east into central Colorado. However, we have confirmed catches throughout the continental USA to the eastern seaboard and into all Gulf States, making the "Hobo Spider" a national pest.The Hobo Spider, originating from Europe began its infestation of the continental USA in the Port of Seattle some time before the 1930's. Most poisonous spider bites in the western half of the USA are due to the Hobo spider.A venomous bite from a Hobo or Brown Recluse Spider can be severe. Necrotic arachnidism results from envenomation (venom poisoning) from the bite of Hobo, or Recluse. It occurs due to the venom's ability to clot blood that results in an area of tissue receiving inadequate blood flow and thus dying secondary to oxygen starvation.Up to 50% of bites by dangerously venomous spiders are "dry" with no venom injected and no signs of poisoning developing. Most people bitten and envenomed by Hobo or Recluse spiders do not feel the initial bite and do not see the biting spider. Bites that are more serious occur when the Hobo gets between clothes or bedding and skin and is trying to get away. Keeping clothes, bedding and storage boxes off the floor is a wise precaution, since they are preferred hiding places for the Hobo. People often get bit in bed, sleeping on couches or floors, when putting on clothes, coats, gloves or shoes that have been on the floor, getting into sleeping bags and when picking up piles of laundry.Seek immediate medical attention if you think you have a Hobo or Brown Recluse spider bite. If possible collect up the spider or what remains of it and take with you to your doctor or emergency clinic."The Spider Elimination Kit" is regularly featured in TV news and radio reports as the most effective way to control and eliminate populations in your living environment of the dangerously venomous Hobo and Brown Recluse spiders, as well as a variety of other poisonous and nuisance crawling insects commonly found in homes.Chemical spraying does not control the Hobo spider. Spraying kills far more predator and competing spiders and insects than it does Hobo's, and has been a major contributor to the Hobo's population explosion throughout the USA. It also kills insects the Hobo hunts and prey upon, forcing the spider to roam over wider areas in search of food. Customers report Hobo populations increasing upwards of three times after spraying. The spider is also becoming highly resistant to some chemical sprays. Conversely, dramatic declines and elimination of Hobo populations are being reported from consistent year round use of our traps in widely varying living environments.The Hobo spider has a three-year life cycle and is more active during its mating months of June to late October, when the males are roaming widely entering homes and other structures looking for nesting females. The three-year-old mature males generally die off after mating. The females often remain at their nest with the egg sacks until late November, into December. Hobos' lay one to three egg sacks containing 100 or more eggs each.Reports indicate no matter the infestation location, juvenile Hobo’s (one and two year olds) are regularly caught inside homes and other heated structures, as are adults throughout their non-mating cycle months (November through May). Proving the Hobo Spider has year round activity inside heated structures. Reports also indicate as many bites occur during these (non-mating cycle) months as during mating season months. The bite from juveniles are often more toxic than the adults.Homes are "crawling with food sources" for juvenile Hobo spiders and two year olds maturing into mating adults. Since “The Spider Elimination Kit” is effective at trapping a wide variety of crawling insects and other spiders, it is removing potential food sources while catching Hobo Spiders. This also tends to attract and trap Hobo's in the immediate area to the traps for what looks to be an easy meal.It is very important for people to become aware Hobo spiders are not just around and active and a concern during their mating months, they are an active and dangerous year round pest.Many assumptions about the Hobo Spider based on the behavior characteristics of its European cousin, simply have not turned out to be the case at all with the Americanized Hobo Spider.The Hobo Spider has adapted to its (North American) habitat very well, to modern dense urban living environments, peoples living and building practices, temperature extremes and geographic location. These adaptations and "environmental adjustments" in the spiders’ behavior have not followed predictions about their adaptations, making the Hobo spider a far more dangerous pest than it's European cousin. Misinformation regarding the Hobo spider and refusal to believe they are happening by “authorities that should know better” can cause people harm. Misinformation is responsible for creating a self-perpetuating mythology now in place about the Hobo spider. Misinformation is also responsible for the national spread of this spider, by using ineffective control practices that contribute to its spread.Some of the more important environmental, behavioral and nesting characteristic adaptations of the Hobo Spider are:They are now widely found throughout all states, coast to coast.The Hobo is highly adaptive to location, environmental and temperature changes.Coastal shipping, interstate commerce, more people moving more often and over greater distances have facilitated the Hobo’s spread nationally.They are active year round and throughout the winter months inside heated structures, with one and two year olds commonly not only wintering over inside homes, but living out their life cycles in homes.Adults are nesting more inside heated inhabited structures then thought.The Hobo spider has a three-year life cycle.People receive confirmed Hobo bites throughout the year, not just during the generally more active mating months (June to late October), indicating higher levels of year round adult and juvenile activity.Chemical spraying "does not" control the Hobo, but has become a major reason for their behavioral changes inside and out; they are resistant to many of these chemical sprays. Sprays kill down many traditional food sources, forcing the spider to hunt over a broader spectrum of potential pray and locations.They roam widely within structures and outside.A bite from the Hobo can kill you; people with weakened immune systems, the elderly and young children and pets are most susceptible.Hobo populations are effectively depleted through year round use of “The Spider Elimination Kit” traps, the original and best non-poisonous sticky traps.To effectively control and eliminate Hobo spiders from your living environment, keep our traps in place throughout your home year round, thus catching juveniles before they mature and adults before they can breed. Our traps also catch a variety of small anthropoids and other crawling insects (even mice), helping to rid your homes of potential Hobo food sources and other pests.”The Spider Elimination Kit” traps have a natural organic attractant, are 100% environmentally and contact safe.The Hobo is "not" an aggressive spider. That is a myth. Hobo's have poor vision seeing clearly only to about a foot or two away. However, being a fast spider - listed as one of the fastest spiders in the world by Guinness Book of World Records - when they sense potential danger or are startled they will run, often towards the source – which is often a person. A startled spider can run up the shoe and pant leg very quickly. The bites from both male and female Hobo's as well as juveniles are poisonous and young and old all have a distinct herringbone or chevron like pattern on top their dorsal abdomen. Hobo spiders prefer floor or ground level habitats, rarely found high on walls or at ceiling level. However we have many reports of them climbing carpeted stairs to upper floors with ease.Designed to catch the Hobo and Brown Recluse spiders, "The Spider Elimination Kit" traps are also an effective, safe means of controlling many insects commonly found in the home. Consistently catching ants, flies, inside centipedes and other anthropoids, silverfish, beetles and other nuisance spiders, all potential food sources of the Hobo spider. They will even catch mice.”The Spider Elimination Kit” is available worldwide from T&J Enterprises and can be ordered XXX at XXX or toll free at 888-769-3878 or by stopping by our retail center at 2328 west Providence, Ave., Spokane, WA. 99205.For up-to-date information on the Hobo Spider or to learn more about "The Spider Elimination Kit” or order on-line visit our web site at: www.tandjenterprises.com/spiders.htm - the official manufacturer information site for "The Spider Elimination Kit".Thomas GiannouT & J Enterprises2328 West Providence Ave.Spokane, WA 99205Main office - 509-327-7670Toll Free Order Line: 888-769-3878www.tandjenterprises.com
