Spider Identification: How To Recognize Different Species

Recognizing different spiders in Maine can be challenging. These pests come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. The two most common types of spiders in Auburn are ground spiders and web spiders. Many different species fall into these two categories. Common spiders you should know about include wolf spiders, cellar spiders, jumping spiders, crab spiders, brown recluse spiders, and black widow spiders. Because there are so many species, the best way to tell what species are inside your home is to bring in a pest control professional for an inspection. This is one service we offer at Big Blue Bug Solutions.

Spider Problems: Why You Don't Want These Arachnids In Your Home

It is not hard to see why spiders might be a problem. There is a good chance that you already know that these pests bite and are venomous. What you might not know is that not all spiders are dangerous spiders. Most local species do not have the ability to bite humans or possess venom strong enough to cause serious harm. That said, there are a couple of local species that do pose a medical threat. Beyond this, you can expect many spiders to build annoying webs all around your home. These webs are good for catching other pests, but in and of themselves are a problem, especially from a visual standpoint. Thankfully, there are options to stop spiders before they get indoors and become a bigger issue. Let’s talk about those options now.

Spider-Proofing: Tips For Preventing Spiders In The Home

Spiders invade local homes and try to find pests to hunt or catch. To stop all sorts of creepy crawlies from breaking into your living areas, here are some general pest prevention options you should try.

  • Address gaps, holes, and cracks around your home’s exterior foundation by sealing them up with a caulking gun and some silicone caulk.
  • Keep all unscreened windows and doors closed if you are not using them and make sure your home’s screens are in good working order.
  • Install weatherstripping and door sweeps as they are necessary to seal your home’s exterior.
  • Reduce clutter indoors by organizing storage areas and getting rid of trash/debris.
