The people who say that “fear is only in your mind” apparently never had a close encounter with a spider. But for the rest of the population, spiders typically spell bad news. At All-Safe Pest & Termite, we get the sense of urgency to live in an arachnid-free environment and provide quality pest control in Plano to make sure that happens. Read on to learn more about different kinds of spiders and their effect on your garden.

What Kind Of Spiders Like To Invade Gardens In Plano?

Texas residents aren’t the only ones who like getting out and about once the weather in the Lone Star state starts to heat up around spring and summer. Unfortunately, spiders are also outside right along with you, enjoying all of your backyard accouterments, including your garden. If you were wondering what types of spiders are likely to invade your outdoor spaces, check out the list below: 

  • Jumping Spider
  • Wolf Spider
  • Brown Recluse Spider
  • Black Widow Spider

Spiders aren't particularly interested in what’s growing in your garden; they enjoy your garden's environment. For example, you may be growing plants ideal for spiders to spin their webs to catch insects. Additionally, some plants or flowers provide the perfect shady setting spiders love; plus, they make lovely hiding places, so be careful the next time you’re tending to your garden.

Are The Spiders In My Garden Venomous?

If you haven’t gotten into the habit of wearing gloves while gardening before, you may want to know knowing there could be some venomous spiders lurking around. Here in Plano, we play host to some super scary spiders. The black widow and brown recluse are two of the most dangerous of all spiders found in Plano yards and gardens. If you are concerned about the presence of these insects on your property, take these steps: 

  • Mow your lawn often.
  • Remove spider webs regularly.
  • Cut overgrown vegetation around your house.
  • Clean and declutter your yard of debris.

You can also apply an insecticide to your lawn if you’ve noticed spiders crawling around. But the best way to reduce their existence is by contacting your local pest control company. They’re highly skilled at getting rid of different kinds of spiders safely.

Are The Spiders In My Garden Beneficial Or Can They Cause Harm?

Spiders in your garden can be a double-edged sword, especially if you’re terrified of them. In Plano, we’re home to several venomous spiders that would make anyone shudder. But surprisingly, having spiders roaming throughout your garden is not as bad as you might assume. These eight-legged creatures can be quite helpful in eliminating insects that could potentially do damage to your greenery and flower beds. Insects like flies, beetles, wasps, mosquitoes, and aphids are all on a spider’s menu. When arachnids are around, you stand a better chance of maintaining a beautiful, healthy garden.
