Spider Identification & Prevention
Our expert team can identify the type of spider you are dealing with and provide solutions to keep spiders away from your house for good.
What are spiders?
Spiders are eight-legged arachnids that typically prey on small bugs or insects. They can range in size from a few millimeters to several inches and come in many shapes and colors. Some common characteristics all kinds of spiders share are two body parts, eight legs, and sharp fangs used to inject venom into their prey. While many spiders create webs to catch food, others hunt their prey.
Are spiders dangerous?
Some spiders can pose a health risk if they bite humans. However, most spider species are harmless, and their bites rarely have severe effects. It is important to identify the type of spider you may be dealing with to better understand the risk.
In North America, only two types of venomous spiders pose a threat to humans; the widow spider and the brown recluse. A black widow spider has a shiny black body with a red or orange hourglass shape on its stomach. The brown recluse spider has a violin or fiddle-shaped mark located on its back near the head. If you see either of these spiders in your home, contact a pest control professional like Solstys Environmental to safely and effectively remove them.

Why do I have a spider problem?
Spiders invade homes for a variety of reasons. They typically like dark, undisturbed areas and will find harbourage in basements, attics, and closets. They also like moisture and will be attracted to damp areas of the home. Lastly, spiders may be drawn to your home if there is an abundance of their prey nearby. These pests prey on a variety of insects, so if your home is full of other bugs, spiders may come in to hunt.
