Spiders are not insects. Many species of spiders are common household pests in the United States. They are considered a beneficial pest because they prey on other insects and many people do not consider pest control measures when it comes to dealing with most spiders. Spiders have eight legs, which makes them easy to separate from insects, which have only six legs. Spiders are arachnids.
Location of Spiders
Certain Spiders populations are found in humid and moist locations like basements and crawl spaces. Other Spiders prefer dry and warm places. They can be found in upper corners of rooms and attics as well as sub floor air-vents. Spiders prefer to hide in dark areas and in cracks as a retreat in order to construct material for their webs. Some species web over lamps, in corners, attics and basements. Every “cobweb” seen was made by a spider.
Spider Bites and Venom
In order to kill their prey, all spiders use venom. Not all spiders however are dangerous to humans.
It is important to note that the Black Widow Spiders and Brown Recluse Spiders, Hobo Spiders and European House Spiders are found, pest control treatment should be considered. These spiders do not create spider webs indoors. Although there is generally little danger resulting from spider bites from most spiders, it is advisable to consult a physician from spider bites.
