The house spider is an arachnid that has been known to invade a home. Often found in dark corners, they are nocturnal and prefer to stay out of sight.
They are typically tan in color, although some can be black or brown as well. They have eight legs and a body broken into two segments, the cephalothorax and abdomen. The cephalothorax is where their eyes and mouth are located.
The house spider uses its fangs to deliver a bite to its prey, which is usually insects like flies but can also include small rodents. The venom will kill the victim, and then the house spider will wrap it up in silk before eating it.
The house spider’s web may be found both indoors and outdoors. Webs may be built in corners, under furniture, or in areas where the spider can catch insects that fly by.
House Spiders typically live in damp areas, like basements and bathrooms. They are not harmful to humans, but they can be pests.
You can find house spiders by:
-Looking for cobwebs! Spider webs are easy to spot and the spider may be nearby.
-Checking under furniture and appliances. House spiders like these places because they are out of the way.
It’s kind of easy to forget that spiders are valuable. They eat a lot of the other little bugs that would otherwise be hanging out in your house, like ants and flies. They don’t reproduce that fast, and they’re not particularly dangerous to humans. In fact, they’re pretty harmless!
But I get it. Spiders are just not all that cute. They’re kind of weird-looking and they make you think of webbing and poop and all sorts of other gross things. But if you want to protect your home from other forms of creepy crawlers, you should think twice before you squash every spider you see.
