Spider Identification: How To Recognize Different Species

There are over a dozen different types of spiders that live here in Brighton. Many have no interest in breaking into your home. Some are less common but are still important to know about. That said, here are the four species you should know how to identify:

  • The wolf spider is ¼ to 1 ?” long, dark brown with lighter-colored stripes and markings, and has thinly-haired, thick legs and a wide body.

  • The house spider is ? to 5/16” long, yellowish brown with white stripes, and has thin, hairless legs and a bulbous abdomen.

  • The black widow spider is 1 ½ to 1 ?” long, black, and has thin, hairless legs and a bulbous abdomen with a red mark on the bottom.

  • The brown recluse spider is ¼ to ½” long, light to dark brown, with a dark, violin-shaped mark behind its head. Its legs are thin, and its body is wide and flat. 

The latter two are the ones to pay the most attention to, as they’re the ones that can cause the most harm if they bite you or a family member.

Symptoms Of Spider Bites: What To Expect And How To Treat

Not all spiders have the ability to bite or venom strong enough to cause pain or harm. The wolf spider does bite, might bite humans, and can cause mild to moderate pain with its venom.

The black widow and brown recluse, on the other hand, have extremely painful venom. A bite from either of these dangerous spiders is immediately noticeable and might come with some severe symptoms, including necrosis, restlessness, muscle pain and stiffness, nausea, and vomiting. To reduce pain and symptoms, seek medical attention if you suspect that a spider bit you.
