Signs You Have a Spider Problem

Increased Spotting Of Spiders

This one is pretty obvious. Seeing more spiders than usual around your home. While it's normal to encounter the occasional spider, an increase in sightings could indicate a larger problem. This is particularly true if you're seeing different types of spiders, as this could mean that multiple species have taken up residence in your home.

Spider Webs

Be on the lookout for webs in corners, behind furniture, and in other hidden areas. Some spiders prefer to build their webs in dark, secluded areas, so be sure to check attics, and crawl spaces as well. Spiders create webs to catch their prey, so finding an abundance of webs in and around your home is a clear indication of a spider infestation.

Increased Dead Insects

Spiders feed on insects, so if you're finding an increased number of dead insects in or around your home, when you have done nothing to cause the insects to be dead, it could be a sign that spiders are present and actively hunting. Pay close attention to window sills, baseboards, and other areas where insects may be trapped and become easy prey for spiders.

Egg Sacs

Female spiders lay their eggs in small, silk-wrapped sacs. If you find these egg sacs in your home, it's a sign that a spider infestation is present and likely growing. Depending on the species, a single egg sac can contain hundreds of eggs, so it's crucial to address the issue as soon as possible.

Bites Or Skin Irration

While most spider bites are harmless, some species, like the brown recluse and black widow, can cause painful bites and even serious health complications. If you or a family member experiences unexplained bites or skin irritations, it's possible that dangerous spiders are present in your home.

Spider Fact #1

Female spiders can lay up to 3,000 eggs at one time. These eggs are housed in one or more silk sacs. 

Some females will die shortly after laying eggs while others will carry spiderlings on their backs or share prey with them.

Spider Fact #2

Most spiders have eight eyes, but some, like the brown recluse spider, only have six. Spiders typically have a main set that can create images while the secondary sets can only detect light and shadow. Even with all these eyes, spiders are known to not be able to see far distances. Therefore, they are nearsighted.

Spider Fact #3

Not all spiders can jump but there are some that can. They jump up to 50x their own height. They use this when trying to hunt or escape predators.

They alter the pressure of fluids in their legs resulting in a springing motion that propels the spiders forward.

Spider FAQs

Spiders have all sorts of clever ways to find their way into your home. Due to their small size, they can work their way through cracks or holes that are barely visible to the human eye.

Common points of entry for spiders include air vents, doorways and windows, gaps around plumbing and electricity, and unfilled holes or cracks. They can also be found in produce or other products you bring into your home.

Generally speaking, the most common types of poisonous spiders you’ll encounter are the black widow and brown recluse. The black widow is clearly recognizable from the large red hourglass-shaped marking visible on their abdomen. The brown recluse can be slightly more difficult to identify, but it’s certainly possible to do. Look for violin-shaped marking on top of the thorax, as this is their most distinguishing feature. 

Spiders typically show up in dark, out of the way places such crawl spaces and attics. Some species of spider are particularly drawn to moisture, while others seek out dry areas in your home.
