Pest Library – Spiders

Proudly Serving South & North Carolina Since 2017


House spiders are the most common spiders found in peoples living areas.  They are usually a yellowish brown with a dirty white abdomen and range from 1⁄4 to 2 inches long.  A spider’s physical characteristics include two body regions and eight legs.

These pests love hanging around areas that are low in traffic such as high corners, closets, garages, basements, attics, under sinks, and furniture.  They usually get in homes from small cracks or holes. House spiders produce a large amount of webs and, if left alone, they can live for over a year feeding on insects, and other spiders.  During a female spider’s life, she has the ability to deposit 12 or more egg sacs which each contain 140 to 380 eggs. With the potential of having these many spiders roaming around your home, it’s very important that you take care of an infestation right away.

A house spider infestation is much more troublesome to have than it is life threatening.  The first thing you’ll notice is an increased amount of webs around your home.  If house spiders are outside your home they will most often hang around any kind of shrubs because it’s a great place to hide.  When they are indoors, it is most likely because they are trying to cool themselves down from the summer heat.
