House Spider

What are house spiders?

If you see spiders wandering around your home, they are most likely house spiders. The house spider is an arachnid and is a yellowish-brown color with an off-white abdomen. It has angled stripes that produce chevron-like markings on its body and legs.

Like all spiders, house spiders have eight legs, two body segments, and produce a silk-like material that they use for many things, including building their webs, climbing, and wrapping up their insect prey.

House spiders are common and live worldwide in our houses, garages, sheds, barns, and warehouses.

Are house spiders dangerous?

House spiders are not dangerous; they do have venom that they inject through their fangs into their prey to paralyze them. However, their venom isn’t potent enough to cause harm to people. House spider bites are usually accidental and occur when they are trying to protect themselves from being squished.

Why do I have a house spider problem?

Having a problem with house spiders indicates that there are likely other spiders and insects living in your home. House spiders will only stay in an area that provides a constant source of food!

Where will I find house spiders?

House spiders are excellent climbers and found living above the ground, using their webs as a place to rest and to catch their insect prey. They generally place their messy webs in the corners of rooms, closets, windows, and doors. They also like to build webs in cluttered areas.

Newer homes with good ventilation and tight seams are less likely to experience problems with house spiders than older homes with lots of cracks and crevices. Older homes also tend to have moisture problems that attract both spiders and their insect prey.
