Spider Identification & Prevention

What are spiders?

Large numbers of leggy spiders crawling around our yards and especially inside our homes are an unwelcome sight for most people. Spiders are arachnids and belong to the same class as mites and ticks. A hard exoskeleton covers their two body segments body and offers them some protection. Spiders move by jumping, running, or using the silk they produce as a tether, but they do not fly as they lack wings.

Many different spider species can invade our Georgia properties; partnering with a professional is the best way to identify which of the following are in your home or business:

  • Black widow spiders
  • Wolf spiders
  • Brown recluse spiders
  • House spiders

Are spiders dangerous?

Some spiders are a considerable threat to people. Spiders like the black widow and brown recluse have venom that is strong enough to affect people’s health. While their bites are usually not life-threatening, their symptoms typically need to be managed by a health professional.

Most other spiders, including wolf spiders and house spiders, aren’t harmful to people but make us feel uncomfortable. Having spiders lurking in dark areas or the corners of your Pooler, GA home is enough to give anyone the chills!

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders move onto our properties in search of food and shelter. Spiders are predators and feed mainly on insects and other spiders; they gravitate to any property where prey is plentiful. Many insects move inside to seek shelter from unsuitable weather. Spiders follow insects from our lawns and gardens and into our homes and garages. Trash cans, gardens, flowerbeds, and similar areas are where you will find spiders and their food sources (insects) hanging out.

Where Will I Find Spiders?

Wolf spiders are not web-building spiders. They build burrows in the ground because while they can run fast, they are not great at climbing. Outside, they burrow under rocks, woodpiles, landscaping timbers, and fallen trees. Inside, they rest on the floor along walls, under furniture, and in the bottom of closets and utility rooms.

House spiders are good climbers and often build their webs up off the ground. Outside, they place their webs in trees, shrubs, woodpiles, under roof eaves, and in doorways. Inside, they are the spiders you find building webs in the corners of rooms, around windows, and in the rafters of basements.

Black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders both build their irregular-shaped webs mostly at ground level. Outside, they live under stones, shrubs, decks, woodpiles, and outbuildings. Inside, they like dark, quiet places like basements, crawlspaces, rafters, and spaces under furniture.
