Characteristics Of Common Spiders

There are thousands of different types of spiders in the U.S.; thankfully, most don't come anywhere near homes or people. These arachnids all share some common traits, including:

  • They have similar body types with eight legs, two body parts, and no antennae or wings.
  • Spiders are predators and eat insects like cockroaches, beetles, and mosquitoes.
  • Their bodies produce silk, which they use to create webs to catch prey or as a retreat.
  • Spiders have fangs with small holes that release venom when they bite to subdue their prey.
  • Most spider's fangs aren't strong enough to break human skin.
  • Many spiders that enter homes lay hundreds of eggs at a time, creating the potential for an extensive infestation.

If you are having trouble getting rid of spiders or are unsure if the type you have is dangerous, the experts at Anver Pest Control are here to help. Contact us today to learn more about our spider control services or to schedule an appointment.

Some Spider Bites Are Worse Than Others

Common house spiders rarely bite unless they sense a threat. These bites typically leave you with some redness and swelling and sometimes no symptoms at all. Here in Las Vegas, black widow spiders are the most concerning species we find in homes.

Black widows have a neurotoxic venom that is medically significant, causing symptoms such as pain, nausea, fever, sweating, and increased blood pressure. Bites are rarely fatal as long as people seek prompt medical attention. If you are seeing a lot of spiders around your Las Vegas home or dangerous black widows, contact us today at Anver Pest Control for assistance removing them.
