What are spiders?

Spiders are arachnids notable for their segmented bodies, eight legs, and fangs. Most spiders have eight eyes, though some species only have six, and they come in a wide range of colors and sizes due to their impressive species diversity. Though spiders are very helpful in the environment as they hunt insects, they are frightening to many individuals, and an infestation of these pests on your property is almost always unwanted.

The types of spiders commonly found in our area that property owners need to keep an eye out for include the black widow, brown recluse, wolf, jumping, house, and orb-weaver. Our service professionals at ProForce Pest Control will help you identify the spider species on your property.

Are spiders dangerous?

Though most common household spiders are more frightened of humans than we are of them, there are a few spider species that it's important to be wary of. In general, wolf, jumping, house, and orb-weaver spiders are relatively harmless and don't have strong enough venom to affect human health with their bites.

On the other hand, brown recluse and black widow spiders present serious health risks with their bites, and you may need to seek medical attention if you believe one of these has bitten you.

Additionally, all types of spiders may trigger allergic reactions with their bites. They will also cause fear, anxiety, or stress when seen crawling around your property in large numbers.

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders seek properties with lots of food, water, and access to shelter. If you notice that spiders are becoming more prominent around your outdoor or indoor areas, you might accidentally be encouraging them. How do you prevent this? Eliminate pest prey food sources, excess moisture, and harborage areas to get rid of spiders naturally.

Where will I find spiders?

Spiders are most commonly found in dark, secluded, and quiet places, as this is where they craft their webs to live or hunt. Outdoors, you may see spiders under porches and decks, behind plant pots, hiding in trees, or in woodpiles and piles of debris. Once inside, attics, storage spaces, closets, basements, garages, and cabinets are all prime hiding spots.
