The reality is that most homeowners are going to find some pesky pests within and outside their homes. Some, such as flies and ants, are simply a nuisance to homeowners and pose little to no threat, but others can be downright dangerous. One of the most common of those dangerous pests within the home includes spiders. Although not all spiders are dangerous, pest control experts still recommend that homeowners know how to spot the dangerous kind. Thus the following includes vital information to assign you in identifying a poisonous spider within your home.
Brown Recluse: Dark Brown Violin Shape?
Dark brown violin shape sounds oddly specifics, but that’s only because it is one of the most common poisonous spiders found in the Midwest and Southeastern United States. However, it is this shape and color that as a homeowner you should be looking at. Pest control experts state that this type of spider can often be found within dark and warm areas of a home. If the spider is trapped and feels threaten, it can begin to attack. Bites from these common spiders may cause severe allergic reactions.
Black Widow: Black & Red Color
Those living in the Southern and Western part of the United States may run into one of the most commonly known and dangerous spiders in the country, the black widow. Fortunately, the black widow spider has a distinct look to it with an all black body and a red hourglass pattern on its belly. The black widow will attack when it feels threaten and will leave two very painful puncture wounds on a person.
Hobo Spider: Yellow Markings
You may notice a trend here. Most spiders that are poisonous will have a distinct color to them. Although that does not mean it’s always going to be easily noticeable. Let’s take the Hobo spider as an example. It looks very much like any other spider, but this small brown species does pack a punch. This is why small spiders should not be ignored. Looking for any bright markings, such as a dark yellow color for the Hobo spider must be looked into as a means to identify its threat.
Identifying a poisonous spider is one thing, handling one is another. This is why it is highly recommended that you contact an experienced pest control company to handle all your pesky pests and those which pose a risk to yourself and your family.
