Did you know that all spiders are venomous? Spiders use venom to paralyze and kill their prey. Thankfully, their prey are other types of insects! The venom contained by a typical house spider is not strong enough to affect humans when bites occur. However, a bite from a black widow or brown recluse can be much more dangerous. To avoid these spiders altogether, it’s important to know how to tell them apart from other spiders:

  1. Black widows can be easily recognized by the red hourglass on the underside of the abdomen.
  2. Brown recluse spiders can be identified by the darker brown hourglass on their back.

How to Control Dangerous Spiders

Black widows and brown recluse spiders typically reside outdoors in hidden areas. When they do manage to get inside, they will hide in dark and undisturbed areas of the home. If you think you’ve spotted either of these potentially dangerous spiders, it’s important to call your local spider exterminators. Thankfully, most spiders you will encounter are house spiders. These are typically harmless unless handled directly.
