How to avoid spider bites in a single bed
What to do if you see a spider bite in your house?
We know it can be scary, but here are a few simple tips for staying safe: If you see it in your bedroom, leave it alone and let the spider move on to another room, a bed, or even the floor.
If your bed is already covered with a sheet, leave that area open.
You might have seen a spider in the window or in the wall.
Don’t try to move your spider into a different room.
If you have a bed and it’s in a different bedroom, don’t try and move the spider.
If it’s still in the room, put a sheet over the bed to keep it from escaping.
Stay away from windows and doors that aren’t made of glass, glass that has been broken, and glass that is damaged from an accident or spill.
Avoid using mirrors or other mirrors in rooms with open doors and windows, and avoid putting glass or other surfaces on your bed.
Never allow your cat or dog to stay in your bed, even if it’s close.
Keep your cat, dog, or other pet inside a secure cage or on a leash if you’re staying at home with them.
If your pet escapes, make sure it is captured and humanely killed.
Don’t take any pets out of your house without first consulting a licensed veterinarian.
