Frequently Asked Questions About Spiders

What are spiders?

Spiders are eight-legged, air-breathing arthropods well-known by the scientific classification of arachnid. Their quick movements, the potential for bites, and the varying amounts of venom they possess often frighten people. However, most spiders you encounter around your property will be common house spiders and nothing more than a nuisance. That said, you need to keep an eye out for a few types of spiders around your property, including wolf spiders, brown recluse spiders, house spiders, and tarantulas.

Are spiders dangerous?

Though most spiders want to avoid you more than you want to avoid them, there are some dangerous spider species you need to look out for around your property. Brown recluse spiders are notably one of the more dangerous spiders you can encounter due to the unpleasant symptoms that their bites may produce.

However, it’s important to avoid all spiders that may be hiding around your property, as any spider can bite you and cause an allergic reaction or unpleasant symptoms. Difficulty breathing and swallowing after a spider bite, or intense pain and swelling, should all be met with immediate medical attention.

Why do I have a spider problem?

In general, spiders don’t end up in your home or business because they are trying to terrorize you. Most spiders prefer to stay away from people and only enter human structures in pursuit of food, such as pest prey, moisture, or secluded hiding spots. If you have a spider problem around your property, chances are you have an insect pest prey infestation too.

Where will I find spiders?

Indoors, spiders love to hang out and create their webs in dark, quiet, and secluded areas such as closets, underneath sinks, basements, crawl spaces, storage spaces or boxes, and attics. Outside, you might see spiders hiding behind plant pots, under porches or decks, or hiding in long grass, woodpiles, and piles of debris.

    "Aries knows pest control."
    I had a serious problem a few years back. Kevin came out, set traps, returned and disposed of the critters because I was terrified, put out bait traps and sealed entrances, and I ain't seen nothing since, thank God! Thorough and responsive.

    "I wholeheartedly recommend their company."
    Got home after a long absence and found a wasps nest in our patio. They came out the same day and took care of them and found an even bigger nest and removed it as well.
