Most common house spiders don’t really pose a threat to you or your family, but they can be a bit of a nuisance and unpleasant to look at. It is important to be aware of what attracts spiders into your house. You might also see more spiders in your house as the weather cools down and they begin looking for a warm place to set up shop. Additionally, spiders can make their way into your home during the dead of summer when temperatures are high as they look for a cooler place.
Identification of the spider is important when it comes to determining the risk the infestation poses. Spiders such as black widows or brown recluses are highly poisonous and should be dealt with quickly and professionally.
How to Identify Spiders?
Spider webs are a key sign that you have a problem. If you find a spider’s egg sac it is important that you take care of it immediately as you don’t know how close it is to hatching and, once hatched, it can lead to a bigger problem.
Spider infestations tend to follow other insect infestations such as flies since they need food to survive. So keep this in mind when you are dealing with other infestations.
If you start to see spiders or spider webs in the corners of your house, it is likely that you have a spider infestation. A spider infestation is also a good sign that there is another insect infestation happening and it might be a good time to get a professional to have a look around because you might have a bigger problem.
Is it a brown recluse?
Brown recluses are very common spiders in Kansas and Missouri. They are typically quarter sized (1/4 to 1/2 inch wide). Commonly referred to as “fiddleback”, the brown recluse spider has a violin shaped back. Their color can vary between a light sandy brown with thin legs and a slightly darker body.
