Spiders are always a concerning sight for area homeowners. Spiders can be scary-looking in general, but some can back up their looks with venomous bites. Children and pets tend to be naturally curious and have the highest risks of negative encounters with spiders, placing increased importance on proper residential pest control methods.

Spiders in your home can be a risky proposition. Don't take a chance that you or anyone else in your home will have negative encounters with spiders. Give All-Safe Pest & Termite a call when you see spiders, and let us take care of all your Houston pest control needs, including spiders.

Types Of Spiders You May Find In Your Home

There are many different types of spiders, and you can encounter more than one type in your house. Here are some common house spiders that you may have to address at some point:

  • Black widow: A large spider with a red hourglass marking; the black widow is venomous but rarely bites.
  • Brown recluse: This arachnid is considered the most venomous spider in our area.
  • Orb Weaver: Responsible for weaving the classic 'spider web,' this spider loves light.
  • Wolf spider: A large, predatory spider, the wolf spider catches its prey by running after it. They carry their babies on their backs.

Spiders come in all varieties, shapes, and sizes, but what bothers most people is when they come into their house. When that happens, contact All-Safe Pest & Termite. We are well-versed in the latest pest control treatment methods and can handle all kinds of common household spiders.

What Kind Of Spiders Are Dangerous To Find In My Home?

Black widow and brown recluse spiders are considered the most dangerous spiders you will encounter in your house. Both types of spiders are generally non-confrontational and will seek to avoid contact with humans. Regrettably, both these types of spiders like hiding behind and under things in your house, and unfortunate encounters can occur. If either species of spider feels threatened, it will bite. The black widow spider has a venomous bite that can cause pain and discomfort for an extended period. The brown recluse spider, however, has a bite that can cause muscle, skin, and nerve tissue to die in a process known as necrosis. Children and pets are naturally curious and tend to have the most encounters with spiders.

You don't want to risk negative encounters with spiders, especially venomous ones. All-Safe Pest & Termite knows how to treat all different kinds of spiders. If you suspect that you have a spider infestation, call us, and let us help you get rid of them. 

How Do I Get Rid Of Spiders And Their Prey In My Home?

What causes spiders in the house? Usually, it is because you have other pest insects in your home, and spiders are hunting them. Spiders are predatory and actively hunt insects. Some spiders use webs to trap insects; others are fast runners and chase prey down. One of the best ways to decrease your chances of encountering spiders is to eliminate other pests in the house. Doing so eliminates the main thing that attracts spiders in the first place.

Spiders come into your home while hunting insects. Contact All-Safe Pest & Termite to eliminate the pests that attract spiders and the spiders themselves.

How Do I Permanently Get Rid Of All The Spiders In My Home?

Treating spiders with DIY methods is not effective. Spiders do not respond well to bait traps and tend to hide in many areas of the home, making it hard to eliminate them regardless of what you try. Your best solution is to call All-Safe Pest & Termite to help. We have the knowledge and experience to get spiders out of your home and to keep them out.
