What are Spiders?

Spiders are arachnids. They’re perhaps the most popular arachnids in the world. While they can be confused for insects, spiders aren’t. They have more legs and body parts than insects, and they move in a different manner.

All spiders have eight legs. But, there are so many variations of spiders that keeping track can be tough. All of these variations have their uniquenesses – some are poisonous, while others aren’t. Some lay webs to catch their prey, while others don’t.

Spiders are carnivorous. So, they feast on meat. Some spiders are large enough to even eat rats and mice – although most spiders focus on smaller insects. Below are some of the species we remove in our spider pest control service.

Types of Spiders

There are currently over 38,000 species of spiders available. However, the most well known of these include the following.

Brown Recluse Spider

This is one of the most dangerous in the United States. Its venom is capable of destroying blood vessels, and it could even cause skin diseases.

Most brown recluse spiders are about 7 mm in length. Their leg span is also about 2.5 cm. It has a violin-shaped design on its front body part, as well as a neck that is formed by a prominent furrow on its back.

These spiders tend to live in caves, rodent burros, and other safe environments But, some can be found in buildings – especially in walls, ceilings, attics, and dark storage spaces.

Brazilian Wandering Spider

Brazilian Wandering Spider

Also known as banana spiders, these spiders are usually found on banana leaves. They’re very poisonous to humans, and they’re seen as the world’s deadliest spider. Their venom is toxic to the human nervous system, causing issues like irregular heartbeat and excess salivation. In severe cases, their bites can cause tissue damage and even death.

These spiders are quite widespread. They dwell mostly in the wild, but there have been instances where they move into human settlements.

Sydney Funnel Web Spiders

As you can imagine, this family of spiders is known for their funnel-shaped webs. They’re especially prominent in Australia and South America, and they use their webs to trap their prey.

The Sydney funnel web spider is large, with a bulky brown body that makes it easy to spot. Their bites are also very venomous, and they can cause different health problems to humans.

Black Widow Spider

The black widow is a species of spider that has also spread around the world. They live in different settings, from burrows and woodpiles to plants that help their webs to stand.

The female black widow has a shiny black body and a red or yellow hourglass frame under her abdomen. The body measures about 2.5 cm in length, while the males are usually a quarter of that length. Males also tend to have white and red stripes on the sides of their abdomens.

A bite from the black widows often produces significant muscle pains and cramping. Other results include nausea and even diaphragm paralysis.
