Spiders are one of the most feared and misunderstood pest that humans come into contact with. Associated with Halloween and other creepy images, spiders, upon sight, tend to give many the chills and are definitely an unwelcome visitor in most homes. With over 3,000 types of spiders in the world, there are only a few that are dangerous to humans. No one is happy to find spiders in their house or at their office. Although most spiders are harmless, there are a few spiders in our area that are dangerous, including black widows, recluses, wolf spiders, and hobo spiders.
Spiders are most active in homes during the late summer and fall months, as spiders begin to make their way into homes to prepare for the cold, winter months. When seen in homes however, spiders will rarely bite people, and in most cases when a spider does bite it is more of a reactionary measure when they are startled rather than with the intent to attack. Spiders will build their nests in areas where prey is easiest found. Nests are usually built in dark and protected areas such as under rocks, in wood piles, or even under furniture.
Spider control is important for homeowners, as this preventative measure helps to keep any potential harm as well as anxiety away from your family. Because there are so many types of spiders, having a treatment that is going to be designed for the particular spider is important. The incorrect use of over-the-counter materials can actually be hazardous to families with small animals and children. Hiring a trained pest control technician who has both the tools and training necessary to efficiently handle a spider problem is always recommended.

The infamous female displays a red hourglass mark on her abdomen and can grow as much as 1.5 inches long. Males are smaller, not as dark, and sometimes have yellow markings. One venomous bite from these spiders can leave someone feeling nauseous with muscle aches, paralysis, and there is a chance of the bite being fatal. Their tangled webs are strong and hold their eggs that are white/brownish in color. Black widows can be found mostly in early summer or late fall and can lay up to 9 egg sacs a year - each containing about 750 eggs! If you come across a black widow in your front or backyard, it’s important to call a professional spider removal company. Don’t try to remove the black widow by yourself.
Black widows typically won’t be found inside of your house, but you might find them in your shed or garage. If you see a black widow, it’s extremely important to contact an exterminator for spider control. Female black widows are especially dangerous; their bite usually contains more venom than their male counterparts. It’s best to not get close if you suspect these dangerous arachnids on your property since they bite when they feel threatened. Our spider control technicians can confirm the type of spider and give a free estimate for black widow extermination. We will take care of the dirty work, keeping you and your loved ones or customers safe in the process.
Wolf spiders are not your typical arachnid. They don’t have webs. They like open spaces to hunt. They are known for being fast and aggressive, which means they are more likely to bite! Looking at them can make anyone wince, with their hairy brown bodies that can grow up to two inches in length. Be careful around leaves and wood piles, where they are known to hang around. Their bite is venomous and painful, but not normally fatal.
Wolf spiders are brown and fuzzy. They have eight eyes, which allow them to have extremely good sight. Wolf spiders are known for being especially creepy looking because of how they carry their babies- on their back. However, wolf spiders aren’t harmful. A wolf spider bite feels like a poke and might cause redness and swelling for a short time. If you are looking for brown recluse spider control, you might actually be looking for wolf spider control. It is common to mistake them as a brown recluse, which doesn’t reside in so let us help with spider identification. If you notice
Hobo spiders are sometimes called giant house spiders. They are attracted to housing structures, especially in the fall when they’re looking for mates. They are extremely fast and tend to stick close to the floor, as they aren’t good crawlers. It’s hard to get rid of hobo spiders on your own. Spider traps and DIY spider repellents don’t work well.
The hobo spider is the spider most likely to cause you trouble. It likes to reside inside houses and hide in between boxes, sheets, and other small and dark places. Hobo spiders cannot crawl up walls well; you'll usually find hobos running across the floor at night or in the corners of your walls. The female hobo is especially poisonous. Her bite has the potential to be deadly and can cause necrosis to the skin.
A hobo spider can deliver one of two kinds of bites: wet or dry. A wet bite is when the hobo releases venom into its victim and a dry bite is when the hobo doesn’t release venom into its victim. You can generally tell whether a hobo bite was venomous or non-venomous by the symptoms you produce. If the bite is mildly irritating, red and swollen, the bite is most-likely dry. If the bite is severe and turns black or blisters, venom was released into your body. This can be extremely dangerous.
Orb-weaving spiders are not poisonous and hardly ever bite humans. They’re usually found outside on pieces of wood or in gardens and they create large, round spider webs to catch prey. A common type of orb-weaving spider is called the cat-faced spider. It’s light brown and translucent, with a black streak on its underside. It has a large abdomen and small head. It’s called a cat-faced spider because its abdomen resembles a cat’s face.
