Spiders are creepy and scary. While most of them are harmless to humans, many people experience extreme fear whenever they just glance at a spider. Most of the spiders you find in your home may not hurt you. However, seeing any type of spider in your home could indicate that you have a different kind of problem on your hands.

At Celtic Pest Control, we are committed to keeping you and your family safe. We provide comprehensive pest control around Sparks and know how to identify and eliminate all spiders from your property. 

Spider Identification: How To Recognize Different Species

Many of the spiders that are in Nevada have an intimidating appearance. However, it is important to note that just because the spider looks menacing doesn't mean it poses any health risk to humans. Some of the most common types of spiders that you are likely to find in Sparks include:

  • Jumping spider: Jumping spiders have small and stout bodies and short legs. They are typically black with white or gray markings, but they can come in a variety of colors, including brown and tan. Their bodies are covered in fine hair, which makes them look intimidating. They also make short and direct movements and can jump long distances, 
  • Wolf spider: The wolf spider may be the scariest-looking spider in the area. They can grow over 1 ½ inches long and have thick bodies. They are usually a combination of brown and tan, but some species may have pale yellow markings as well. 
  • Black widow spider: this spider has a shiny black body with a red marking on its underside shaped like an hourglass. 

The black widow spider is the only spider on this list that can be dangerous to humans. Its neurotoxic venom can cause severe symptoms in some people, which could include muscle weakness, dizziness, and trouble breathing. If you think a black widow spider has bitten you, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible to prevent serious complications. 

Issues Caused By Spiders In The House: Webs, Bites, And Inconvenience

Spiders can be a nuisance when they invade your home. Some species will create large webs in the corners of your home to catch their prey. These webs don't look very attractive in your home and can also collect dust and small bugs. 

While spiders can be a nuisance to have around, they can also act as a warning sign of other problems in your home. For instance, spiders like to eat insects. If you suddenly see several spiders in your home, it could mean you have some type of insect infestation in your home as well—also, many spiders like moist and dark places. Seeing spiders in your home could also mean you have a leaky pipe or some other moisture issue. 

Preventing Spider Infestations: Practical Tips And Tricks

If you have spiders in your home, you should have them inspected to ensure there are no other issues. Make sure that all cracks and gaps are sealed off in your home. Also, check to ensure no moisture issues or other pest infestations inside your home.
