Are you afraid of spiders? Many people are, and we do not blame you. These pests are terrifying to look at and occasionally threaten people with painful bites.

We are going to take some time today to talk about why spiders invade homes and how to stop these pests from invading your property in Collegeville.

How Can I Tell What Type Of Spiders Are In My House?

Lots of spiders live here in Collegeville. Only a few are dangerous. Sadly, all dangerous spiders do not look alike. The two most harmful species in our area are the black widow and the brown recluse. The black widow is a large black web spider with a bulbous abdomen and a red hourglass-shaped mark on its underside. The brown recluse is a small brown ground spider with a backward violin-shaped mark behind its head.

To identify other common spiders in your Collegeville home, consider scheduling a thorough pest inspection. Our team can help you identify what species are causing you trouble and offer solutions to get them out fast. 

Do All Spiders Bite?

All spiders are capable of biting. Some, however, do not have mouth parts that are capable of piercing human skin. Keeping this in mind, most spiders that can bite humans rarely do so. These pests are naturally timid and do their best to avoid interacting with anything that could squish them in a second. Remember, all spiders that can bite will bite if they feel threatened or trapped. Some species have potent venom that causes severe pain and other symptoms.

If you suspect a dangerous spider bit you, seek medical attention to minimize symptoms and avoid the risk of further injury. Otherwise, do your best to avoid putting your hand in secluded areas where these eight-legged menaces might be hiding.

Why Do I Have A Spider Problem In My Home?

Spiders are not the most complicated creatures. There are only a few reasons why spiders might be inside your home.

Here are three of the most common reasons:

  1. They wandered in through a gap, crack, or other entry points in your home's exterior.
  2. They were hatched inside.
  3. They came indoors to search for insects, arthropods, and arachnids to hunt or catch as prey.

If you do not want to find spiders or the pests they hunt inside your home, we recommend addressing potential entry points around your home's exterior and investing in some form of professional pest control. We have options for this at Terra Pest Management Specialists.
