Why House Spiders Are In Your Baldwyn Home

Wolf spider crawling

Spiders strike fear into the hearts of most people. Even if you are someone who isn’t scared of spiders and is brave enough to eliminate them, you likely still find these arachnids off-putting to encounter.

But, while spiders look scary, most spiders in Baldwyn are surprisingly harmless. The majority of house spiders that invade properties cannot cause harm. While they have fangs and venom, their venom isn't potent enough to harm people or most pets. But regardless, house spiders can be unsettling. Find out how Baldwyn pest control services can help if you're dealing with a spider infestation.

What Do House Spiders Look Like?

The common house spider is one of the most prevalent home-invading species in the area. These spiders are brown or gray with darker markings in chevron patterns. However, other species that invade homes are also called the house or nuisance spiders.

These species include cellar spiders, which are yellowish and have exceptionally long, spindly legs. There’s also the wolf spider which is often mistaken for a dangerous species. Wolf spiders have fur-covered bodies and legs and mix brown, gray, and black colors.

House Spiders Like Insects

Some pests in the area invade in search of shelter from the weather or find crumbs that people leave behind; spiders come inside for another reason. They follow their prey around, so you likely have an underlying insect infestation if you see more spiders. 

You might not even realize that you have a pest infestation at first, as some species are small and hide in out-of-sight areas, but spider infestations can indicate a problem. This usually means the need to address general pest control.
