Common Species Of Spiders Found In My House
There are over 3,000 different types of spiders local to the United States. Here are the ones you'll most likely find lurking inside your home:
House spiders: These tiny yellowish spiders are the most commonly found in the country. Common household spiders are not a direct threat to humans but a nuisance.
Wolf spiders: These strange spiders don't weave webs to catch prey. Instead, they hide in holes and other small openings and wait in ambush.
Orb-weaver spiders: This family of spiders spins the intricate spiral webs made famous in popular culture. They have brightly colored exteriors.
Black widow spiders: One of the famous dangerous spiders in North America. The shiny black spider hides in nooks and crannies. Its venom can be fatal but is treatable.
These are just some of the more famous spiders in the country, but there are plenty more lurking around. If you're struggling to identify a spider you found in your home, give us a call. One of our technicians will inspect and get to the bottom of your spider problem.
What It Means If You're Seeing Spiders In Your Home
Why do spiders enter our homes? In most instances, they are hunting other pests in your home. Spiders, like other insects, usually wander inside because we provide easy access to something they need to survive, like food or water.
However, just because spiders eat other insects doesn't mean you should leave them be. Though many spiders won't seek out or prey on humans, they can still attack if they feel threatened. Call us today to talk about our comprehensive spider and web removal services. All of our treatments are EPA-registered.
