Frequently Asked Questions About House Spiders

What are house spiders?

House spiders, commonly referred to as common house spiders, are arachnids that aren’t particularly dangerous, but they are a major nuisance and can be frightening to encounter around your property. There are a few different types of spiders that might be considered common house spiders, and Uinta Pest Solutions can help you identify the specific type of spider you are dealing with on your property.

In most cases, house spiders are dark brown in color, and they spin webs that are high up or located in cluttered areas. House spiders love dark, secluded, and quiet areas like most other spiders, and they are fairly prolific if an infestation isn’t treated.

Are house spiders dangerous?

While house spiders aren’t the most dangerous spiders around, they are problematic to deal with. Encountering house spiders can cause fear and anxiety, and large infestations of this pest might have you too stressed to enjoy your property properly. Additionally, all house spiders do bite, and though their bite isn’t considered medically dangerous like that of the black widow or brown recluse, bites may trigger allergic reactions, mild pain, itching, or swelling.

Why do I have a house spider problem?

You most likely have a house spider problem because there are factors on your property that attract this pest. House spiders love cluttered, dark, and secluded areas to hide, and having lots of clutter on your property outside such as piles of debris and overgrown foliage, or piles of boxes and clutter inside, provide ample hiding spaces. House spiders may also be drawn to excess moisture on your property or the presence of pest prey, such as an infestation of ants or roaches.

Where will I find house spiders?

House spiders are typically found around dark and crowded areas, spinning their webs and waiting for food to come along. You may find house spiders in attics, basements, or garages, at the backs of cabinets, and around secluded or cluttered areas outside. House spiders also hang out around crawl spaces, underneath decks, and behind plant pots.
