Frequently Asked Questions About Spiders

What are spiders?

Spiders are classified as arachnids, and many people might startle at the sight of these eight-legged pests crawling around their property. In addition to eight legs, spiders have six or eight eyes, range in size from very small to several inches in length, and display various colors and patterns based on species. Spiders are one of the most diverse groups in the environment and they can be dangerous depending on how strong the venom delivered by their bite is.

Local spiders you're likely to encounter in Brighton include the house spider, jumping spider, and wolf spider. First Choice Pest Control will help you with the identification of any of these types of spiders.

Are spiders dangerous?

While most common house spiders are more scared of humans than we are of them, some spiders may be dangerous to encounter, such as the black widow and the brown recluse. The spiders most commonly seen in Brighton include house, jumping, and wolf spiders, and even though their appearance tends to be unnerving, none of these species are particularly venomous.

However, all kinds of spiders may deliver bites that are painful or trigger allergic reactions. Serious allergic reactions to spider bites include difficulty breathing and swallowing, and these need to be met with immediate medical attention.

Why do I have a spider problem?

A spider problem around your property is most likely the result of an excess of the factors that attract spiders being easily available. Like many other pests, spiders are drawn to food, moisture, and sheltering spots. With spiders, this means an abundance of pest prey, moisture issues inside and outside, and cluttered or overgrown areas outdoors are likely to attract infestations and leave you dealing with an out-of-control problem.

Where will I find spiders?

Spiders prefer to hide around dark, secluded, and quiet places. You are likely to see these arachnids outside near piles of debris and overgrown grasses, hiding behind plant pots, and making their webs under the eaves of decks, patios, and overhangs. Once inside, spiders are often found in basements, attics, storage spaces, garages, and closets.
