Spiders can be a major concern for Wilder homeowners.

Scientists believe there are around 38,000 more spider species yet to be discovered. This is approximately the same number of spider species that have already been discovered. That’s enough undiscovered spider species to line up from Huff Rd to Mitchell Dr, which is about 11 city blocks.

Luckily, we feel comfortable saying any spider you find in your home has already been identified if it’s a nuisance or hazard.  Feel free to ask our technician what type of spider you’re seeing at the time of your appointment.

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’re most commonly found in the Midwestern and Southern states.

House spiders are typically brown or gray in color. They’re small to medium in size, and range from ⅛ to ⅜ of an inch 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.
