Dangerous Spiders Found In Homes In Henderson, CO
Spiders elicit a strong reaction in most people. Even if your fears do not reach phobic levels, it is alarming to find one on you or crawling along a wall in your home. Spider webs make your home feel unclean and indicate the presence of what is likely to be a bigger problem. As these creatures typically stay in dark, undisturbed areas, seeing a spider or a web means there are likely more breeding somewhere in your home.
The fear factor is not the only motivation for getting rid of spiders. It is important to be aware that in addition to being painful, spider bites can have serious adverse effects on your health. Out There Colorado warns that some local spider types are poisonous and potentially dangerous than others. In terms of spiders in Henderson, the ones to look out for in your home include:
Black Widow Spiders
These are among the most feared and potentially deadly of the spider species. Black widow spiders are aggressive in biting humans, particularly if they think you are threatening them or their nest. They can live in woodpiles or in debris in your yard or in decks or storage spaces. From there, they can easily make their way indoors. Their bite itself is not that painful but reactions to their venom can be severe.
Another poisonous type of spider that can get into homes in Henderson, the brown recluse spider likes wooded locations as well as cardboard. They can infest attics, crawl spaces, sheds, and basements, or maybe in boxes of items you have stored. Due to enzymes found in their venom, bites can lead to large, oozing sores. Seek treatment immediately if a brown recluse bite is suspected.
Yellow Sac Spiders
While these are not as poisonous as the above, yellow sac spider bites are extremely painful. These tend to gather webs indoors, near junctions between walls or ceilings. They are very aggressive and their bite is extremely painful. Similar to that of a brown recluse spider bite, the bite can leave victims with red, swollen, itching sores that may become easily infected.
Other common spiders in Henderson are wolf spiders and hobo spiders. These are very common throughout Colorado and can easily make their way into your home via gaps in doors or windows and cracks in the siding. Even though they are not poisonous, they should still be approached with caution. They can be aggressive when threatened, their bites are very painful, and their venom causes serious allergic reactions in many people.
