Identification & Prevention
What are spiders?
Spiders are predatory arachnids that feed on nuisance and dangerous insects and other spiders, helping to control their populations and preventing them from taking over gardens, crop fields, and other outdoor spaces.
Spiders have two body segments, eight legs, produce silk, and lack antennae and wings. Depending on their species, spiders use their silk to build their webs, line their burrows, wrap up their prey, and as a tether.
The spiders that homeowners in our region are most likely to find in their yards and homes include:
Are spiders dangerous?
Spiders are naturally reclusive and not aggressive toward people. However, that doesn't mean they won't bite if they feel threatened. Spiders most often bite people after we make accidental contact with them while they are hiding in items like clothing, bedding, storage boxes, and gardens.
Where will I find spiders?
Spiders live in areas where they can mostly live out of sight and successfully hunt down their insect prey. Preferring quiet and rarely disturbed areas, spiders usually hang around overgrown gardens, basements, and attics.
