Spiders can be a major concern for homeowners in need of Boise pest control.

The Black Widow, Hobo and House Spider tend to thrive in our dry, semi-arid climate. When disturbed, these pests can pose a very pesky or poisonous risk to anyone who gets bit. That’s why it’s important to learn more about these spiders and prevent them from invading your home.

Our common spiders are not migratory, but they do come inside when the weather cools.  You may see them more often outdoors during the summer at Camel’s Back Park.  In the winter, though, you’ll find them more often indoors. Call us to schedule an appointment and our technicians can help you identify any spiders found in or around your home and alleviate any concerns you may have.

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.
