Thought Your Holiday Guests Departed? Not Spiders.
The holidays are quickly approaching, and just as fast as they arrive, they pass us by! The colder weather is coming and spiders are discovering again their favorite places to build webs, homes. Most spiders are just an annoyance, but the NPMA warns that the brown recluse and black widow spiders can be a health risk.
The Brown Recluse is known to inject poison with its bite, but it usually doesn’t bite humans unless it feels threatened. The bits are painful and cause open sores. This spider measures in around a half inch with a dark brown violin mark on its back. They build their nests in warm, dry and dark environments like basements and closets.
Black widow spiders do not bite humans instinctively but when they do bite, the bite is extremely painful. The black widow can be recognized by a red hourglass shape under the abdomen. They spin their webs close to the ground and are found in woodpiles or any undisturbed area.
