Brown House Spiders
While all spiders can produce spider silk, did you know that some spiders do not create webs? Take the wolf spider for instance. Wolf spiders do not create a web, instead they wander around looking to either ambush or chase down their prey. Their eight eyes arranged in three rows, gives them good eye sight. Wolf spiders can grow to be about 5 inches in length and will only bite you if they feel threatened. Female wolf spiders carry their young on their back. You have probably jumped back in terror if you accidentally bumped one and watched as tons of baby spiders explode off the spider’s back. Wolf spider bites are not life threatening. If you get bit, you may experience localized pain, swelling, and even itching. Whenever you get bit by a spider, try to capture it in a plastic bag. This will help medical professionals identify the culprit.
Yellow Sac Spider
Even though their name suggests they are yellow, these spiders can range in color from a light yellow to tan to brown. Yellow sac spiders love to build their bag like nests where your walls meet your ceiling. The biggest problem with yellow sac spiders is they are one of the few spiders that will bite for no reason. Their bites are immediately painful and have caused many homeowners to hate them.
Brown Recluse Spider
Bites from brown recluse spiders have been associated with skin necrosis and large open wounds. Whether this is caused from the venom or a secondary infection from bacteria is not fully known. No matter the source, make certain you use caution around the brown recluse. Brown recluse spiders have the notorious violin shape on their back. But the very best way to identify them is with their eyes. Other brown spiders have eight eyes, in various arrangements. Brown recluse spiders have six eyes that come in pairs. Each pair of eyes is arranged in a line across their head. Brown recluse spiders love woodpiles and stacks of cardboard. They build irregular webs to trap prey.
