How To Identify Nuisance Spiders

There are two types of spiders, nuisance spiders, and dangerous spiders. The one thing that separates these two categories is threat level. Most kinds of spiders pose no direct threat to human health and either lack the ability to bite or do not have venom that is strong enough to cause harm. There are, however, a few species in America that are known to be dangerous. These pests include black widows, false widows, brown recluse, and yellow sac spiders. Because there are so many species, the best way to identify an infestation inside your home is to research keywords associated with the spiders you are seeing. Another great option is to bring in our team for a thorough pest inspection. We are experts and know how to tell harmful arachnids apart from common nuisance spiders.

The Problems Spiders Can Create In Homes

Spiders are not always problematic. In fact, most species in our area could be considered more of a benefit than a threat. This is because of the way they cull local pest populations. A few webs around your home’s exterior can help reduce your chance of infestation. It will also, however, increase your chances of finding spiders indoors. The one thing you need to worry about, besides the fact that spiders are creepy, is that some local species pose a threat with their bites. Two common dangerous spiders are black widows and brown recluses. Although not aggressive, both of these pests can cause severe medical trouble with their venomous bites. For safety’s sake, it is better to sure no spiders get into your home than to tolerate a few of these pests.
