Common Spiders to Control in Providence
There are a lot of spiders out there. You can find them weaving classic webs between your rose bushes, or find them living in your home crawling up walls where even a fly swatter won’t reach. While there are a lot of different spiders out there, here are some of the more common types of spider that want to make your home into their home.
Yellow Sac Spider: The yellow sac spider gets its name from first its color. These spiders range in color from yellow, tan, and even a greenish yellow. Yellow sac spider skin is thin and their color will alter depending on what they have eaten. The second part of its name comes from its habit of building little web sleeping bags. The most common place to find these web sacs is along your walls where they meet the ceiling. Most spiders will only bite you when they feel threatened. This is not true for the Yellow Sac Spider. They are one of the few spiders that will bite you for no reason. If they happen to be walking across your leg while you are taking a nap, the chances are high that you will awaken with a spider bite. The pain of a Yellow Sac Spider bites have been compared to bee stings. Not very painful, but irritating none the less.
Black Widows: Black Widow spiders are extremely shy. Their venom costs a lot of energy for them to create, so they only want to use it to capture prey, or protect themselves. Black widows will bite if they feel threatened. Unfortunately, they love to live inside of garages and basements. If a black widow happens to crawl inside of your shoe or and old glove and you put it on, the spider will bite you to protect itself. Our technicians have even found black widows living in children’s toys that have been left outside for a while. Black widows built haphazard webs that look like odd stands of silk going in all directions. Black widow bites are concerning. If you even get bitten, you should seek our medical attention.
Wolf Spiders: These common brown spiders do not build nests. They prefer to ambush or simply run down their prey. Wolf spiders are fast runners, but not the best climbers. They have excellent vision and are able to move with stunning speed. Wolf spiders will bite if they feel threatened. Their bites might hurt, but they are not medically significant.
