Different Types of Spiders

There are dozens, even hundreds of varieties of spider that are native to the Houston area, and that means your spider infestation will be completely different from the one that someone else is dealing with. In some cases, your infestation might be made up of a mix of different varieties of spiders, while in other cases you may be dealing with a huge colony of one particular species of spider. 

Common Houston Spiders and How We Manage Them

  • Grass spiders: Small spiders that weave distinctive webs in grass and lawns.
  • Orb weaver spiders: Somewhat larger spiders with a distinctive yellow, orange, or white pattern on their otherwise black abdomen. Generally harmless to humans.
  • Woodlouse hunter spiders: Spiders that have a distinct shiny brown abdomen and a dark red head and midsection.
  • Wolf spiders: Generally larger spiders with a body that can approach one inch in length (not including their legs. They generally hunt insects along the ground, so they don’t often spin webs.
  • Black widows: A venomous spider with a trademark red mark located on the underside of the abdomen. Female bites can be very painful and harmful to humans.
  • Brown recluse spiders: A brown long-legged spider about the size of a penny that packs a nasty bite. While it may not be immediately harmful, they can be dangerous to humans and pets.
  • Long-bodied cellar spider: Also known by it’s more common name, the “daddy-long-legs,” these spiders are generally harmless to humans, but do have an intimidating appearance. They are venomous, but they are generally incapable of actually biting most humans.

Signs Your Home Has a Spider Infestation

Identifying a spider infestation in your home is essential for implementing timely control measures. While spiders are generally beneficial predators that help control other pests, large populations can become a nuisance and indicate an underlying issue. 

Key Indicators of Spider Presence

  • Webbing: Spiders often leave behind intricate webs, particularly in corners, ceilings, and other undisturbed areas of the home. The presence of multiple webs may indicate a significant spider population.
  • Visible Spiders: Spotting spiders, especially during daylight hours when they typically hide, can be a clear indication of an infestation.
  • Egg Sacs: Spider egg sacs are small, silken spheres usually found near webs or in hidden areas such as behind furniture or in storage spaces.
  • Dead Insects: Spiders feed on insects, so an increase in dead insects around your home could signal a thriving spider population.
  • Bites or Skin Irritation: While spiders generally avoid human contact, unexplained bites or skin irritation may indicate their presence, especially if bites occur repeatedly.
  • Unusual Spider Behavior: Aggressive or unusual spider behavior, such as running erratically or appearing in large numbers, may indicate an infestation.

Being vigilant for these signs can help you address a spider infestation before it becomes a larger problem. If you suspect an infestation, consider seeking professional spider control services to effectively manage the situation and prevent future occurrences.

Preventing Your Spider Problem from Getting Out of Control

Preventing spiders from invading your home in Houston involves a combination of strategies to make your living space less appealing to them. Here are some tips to help you keep spiders at bay:

  • Seal Entry Points: Inspect your home for gaps and cracks in windows, doors, and walls. Seal any openings using caulk or weather stripping. Make sure screens on windows and doors are in good condition.
  • Clean Regularly: Spiders are attracted to clutter and debris. Regularly clean and declutter your home to eliminate hiding spots. Pay special attention to areas where spiders might find food, such as crumbs in the kitchen.
  • Remove Spider Webs: Regularly clean and remove spider webs from corners, ceilings, and other areas where spiders tend to build their webs.
  • Vacuum Regularly: Vacuuming helps eliminate spiders and their egg sacs. Pay attention to corners, baseboards, and other hidden areas.
  • Keep Outdoor Areas Tidy: Trim vegetation and bushes around your home to reduce hiding spots for spiders. Clear away any debris, woodpiles, or other items spiders might use as shelter.

Remember that while spiders can be beneficial in controlling other pests, it's understandable that you may not want them inside your home. By implementing these preventive measures, you can reduce the likelihood of spiders invading your living space.
