Fort Worth is home to tens of thousands of satisfied homeowners. Unfortunately, it is also home to millions of spiders. Common house spiders are routine pests that all homeowners have to deal with if they live in a home for any length of time. Unfortunately, Fort Worth also hosts venomous spiders. Homeowners in Fort Worth do not want spiders in their homes and especially do not want venomous spiders in their homes.

Types Of Spiders You May Find In Your Home

Here are some of the kinds of spiders you might find in and around your home:

  • Woodlouse Hunter: Comes inside when the weather turns cool; long fangs feel like a bee sting if a bite occurs
  • Common House Spider: Not venomous, but the most commonly encountered
  • Orb Weaver: Generally found on porches and walkways and weave large webs.
  • Grass Spider: Cool weather drives them inside
  • Wolf Spider: Will bite if provoked, which feels like a wasp sting
  • Brown Widow: Prefer quieter, darker places and will bite if provoked
  • Texas Recluse: Venomous and will bite if provoked
  • Black Widow: Notorious for their venomous bite
  • Brown Recluse: Considered the most venomous spider in America

Some of these spiders sound scary, and all of them can be unwanted pests in your Fort Worth home. If you find yourself suddenly struggling with unexpected spider visitors, call All-Safe Pest & Termite. We know how to get rid of spiders.

The Potential Dangers Of A Brown Recluse Spider's Bite

Most spider bites come as a surprise. Brown recluse spiders like to hide in sheets, clothing, and bedding and may bite during inadvertent contact. Brown recluse bites can destroy skin tissue, nerves, and blood vessels through a process called necrosis. Other symptoms of a bite can be chills, dizziness, rash, fever, and vomiting. Immunocompromised individuals, older individuals, and young children are the most vulnerable to bites.

No homeowner wants to come into unnecessary contact with spiders, especially venomous spiders, and All-Safe Pest & Termite understands. We don't want that either. Contact us today so that we can help get dangerous spiders out of your house quickly.

Six Practical Tips To Prevent Future Dangerous Spider Infestations

Here are some tips to help keep dangerous spiders away from your home:

  1. Keep outside trash containers sealed tightly. Trash draws bugs, which attract spiders.
  2. Minimize outdoor lighting at night. Lights draw bugs, which draw spiders.
  3. Knock down spider webs as soon as you see them. Spiders will leave that area.
  4. Keep floors/carpets vacuumed. Crumbs draw bugs, and spiders will follow them in.
  5. Keep counters clean. Dirty counters attract hungry bugs. Hungry spiders come for bugs.
  6. Keep clutter clean. Clutter provides many places for spiders to hide.

These tips can help reduce the chances that spiders may move into your home, but nothing can guarantee that spiders will not eventually come in. When that happens, contact All-Safe Pest & Termite to help get spiders back out again.
