Are spiders dangerous?

Many people don’t realize that all spiders have fangs and venom. Even though this is true, only two species in the United States are medically dangerous to people. Unfortunately, both of these species are in California. They are black widows and brown recluses.

Neither of these species is aggressive, but they will bite if threatened. Because of this, it is best to steer clear of them. If one of these spiders ever bites you, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Although black widows and brown recluse spiders are considered the only dangerous species in the area, some people are allergic to spider venom in general and can experience reactions, so you should always monitor any spider bite.

Why do I have a spider problem?

While most people dislike spiders, they are beneficial to us as they help control pest populations. Pests are also why you may end up with a spider problem; they will follow their prey into your home. Most spider species are shy and prefer to keep their distance from people, but they might wander in if there are food sources.

Where will I find spiders?

Spiders tend to stick to lightly trafficked areas such as closets, window sills, garages, attics, basements, and similar places. Because spiders feed on prey pests, you might also find them living in potted plants.

Interestingly, wolf spiders don’t make webs but live in burrows where they can actively hunt for prey. If they make their way inside, they will likely hide under furniture or other places that provide the same protection as a burrow.

How do I get rid of spiders?

No matter what species you are dealing with, it is best to leave spider control to professionals. As you read above, spiders are attracted to homes because there are prey pests, so you likely have other insect issues beyond spiders. At A-1 Bonded Termite, we can assist with spiders and the prey pests they feed on with our residential and commercial control services in Anaheim, as well as pest management programs in Santa Ana and other surrounding areas. With our help, you can have year-round protection from unwanted pests, so call today to learn more!

How can I prevent spiders in the future?

To reduce spider populations on your property, you should reduce the food sources and other factors that attract prey pests. Clean up crumbs, store open food properly, repair leaks, address other moisture issues, and seal up entry points.

Don’t forget to contact us at A-1 Bonded Termite for assistance with all your pest control and property fumigation needs.
