Spider Identification & Prevention

Frequently Asked Questions About Spiders

What are spiders?


Spiders are eight-legged arachnids that come in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and danger levels. Most common household spiders are relatively harmless, despite their appearance, but there are a few dangerous spiders that you should be actively avoiding, such as the black widow and the brown recluse spiders.

For the most part, you can identify spiders by their colors, patterns, size, and living or feeding habits. However, it can be dangerous to get too close to a spider, which is why you should contact Accutech Pest Management for all of your spider identification and removal needs.

Are spiders dangerous?

Though most spiders won't harm you with their bites, save for a little bit of pain and itching, some spiders can be incredibly dangerous to encounter. Black widow and brown recluse spiders are considered the two most medically dangerous species in the United States. Bites from these spiders cause symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, vomiting, muscle pain or weakness, difficulty breathing and swallowing, or even death.

It's also important to keep in mind that any spider bite can cause an allergic reaction, and children, those with compromised immune systems, or the elderly are the most likely to have severe symptoms from a spider bite.

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders are typically attracted to properties with lots of easily available food in the form of pest prey infestations, plenty of dark and secluded sheltering spots, and excess moisture. Removing and reducing these factors is key to preventing further spider problems.

Where will I find spiders?

Spiders will hide outdoors in long grass, overgrown trees and shrubs, around woodpiles, in holes in the ground, or near piles of debris. Once inside your property, spiders will seek any dark, secluded, or cluttered location that makes for a safe hiding spot.

How do I get rid of spiders?

Removing spiders from your property can be difficult; you never want to risk an accidental bite. You also want to be sure to remove all spiders and their eggs so that problems don't return.
