What are spiders?

Most people have a basic understanding of spiders, knowing they are arachnids and have eight legs. However, most people don’t know that all spiders have fangs and venom, not just dangerous ones. Many people may not know that some spiders don’t spin webs but live in burrows where they actively hunt for prey.

As much as some of us dislike spiders or are afraid of them, spiders are essential to our environment and help to control other pest populations.

Are spiders dangerous?

While all spiders have venom, only two species in the country are medically dangerous to people. These are black widows and brown recluse spiders. However, other spiders can be dangerous if you are allergic to the venom. If you are bitten by a spider other than a black widow or brown recluse, you should still monitor your symptoms and seek medical attention if necessary.

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders are actually beneficial to us because they help to keep other annoying and dangerous pests away. However, this also means that if you see spiders in your home, it is probably due to the presence of prey pests. Luckily, treating for spiders and prey pests go hand in hand!

Where will I find spiders?

Most spiders you will encounter in your home prefer to hide in lightly trafficked areas. These places can include closets, under furniture, inside sheds, basements, garages, and attics. You might also find them or their webs around windows and in corners of rooms.

How can I prevent spiders in the future?

If you want to prevent spiders in your Florida home, you should regularly remove any webs you see and focus on keeping prey pests out, as this is the most common reason for spiders. You can do this using the following tips:

  • Inspect and seal any potential entry points. You should focus on your foundation, installing screens, and weatherstripping on exterior windows and doors.
  • Reduce moisture in your home by fixing leaks, ensuring proper ventilation, and using dehumidifiers in areas where humidity tends to build. 
  • Remove crumbs and spills right away and store open food in airtight containers to reduce potential food sources. You should also use trash cans with tight-fitting lids. 
  • Deter some pests by keeping outdoor lights off at night when possible. 
  • Make cleaning your home easier but keep it organized and clutter-free.
