Spider Webs: How They Are Made And Their Purpose

Not all spiders make webs. The ones that do make webs do so to catch their prey. That said, not all web-building spiders build their webs in the same way. Some build irregular webs low to the ground. Others build circular webs higher up. There are even some species that work together to create blanket webs over shrubs and grass. Spiders do this by producing silk from their hind section. This silk can either be sticky or smooth. Different types of spiders use smooth silk to walk on and sticky silk to catch prey.

If you notice webs around your home or property, let us know. We will schedule an inspection and find out what types of spiders you are up against.

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

Thankfully, there are no life-threatening spiders in our area. Keeping this in mind, if you are ever bitten by one of these pests and experience moderate to severe pain, seek medical attention immediately. This will reduce your chances of developing some of the more severe symptoms associated with spider bites.
