Spiders can be a major concern for Emmett homeowners.

There are over 37,000 types of spiders, but only 25 of them are venomous.  Of those 25, 2 can be found in Emmett: the black widow, and hobo spiders.  How venomous the hobo spider is, is still being debated.  While most spiders live between 1 to 3 years, some can live past 20.  The diet of most spiders are insects, but some are large enough to eat birds and lizards. Whether you live on Mimosa Ln or Apache St, spiders can still cause painful bites, even if they don’t cause necrosis.

Common Spiders

Black widow spiders get their name due to the fact that the females eat the males soon after they mate. Venomous, they can be identified by their black shiny bodies, which include a bright red hourglass marking on the underside of their abdomen. They range from 1½ to 1¾ inches in length and can be found throughout the entire United States.

Hobo spiders are also known as aggressive house spiders. As one of the three most venomous spiders found in the United States, the Hobo is brown with a yellow chevron-shaped marking on its abdomen. Easily distinguishable, they range from ½ to 2 inches long. They are most commonly found in the Midwestern and Southern states.

House spiders are typically brown or gray in color. They are small to medium in size, and range from ⅛ to ⅜ inches long. Males and females vary in their appearance due to their round or elongated abdomens and are found throughout the entire United States. Unlike their poisonous counterparts, house spiders are more of a common nuisance than a dangerous one.
