Spider Identification & Prevention

What You Need To Know About Spiders In Henderson, Nevada

Controlling spiders and the insects they feed on is vital to maintaining a property that is not overrun by unwanted pests. The hot temperatures in Henderson, Nevada, allow spiders and the insects they feed on to thrive year-round. They are pests that frequent our properties as our indoor and outdoor spaces provide them with perfect habitats. Use the information in this pest guide to learn more about spiders in Nevada and how to keep them away from your home and family.

What are spiders?

Spiders are unique-looking pests and are easily identified by their unique features:

  • Two body segments
  • Eight legs
  • Many eyes
  • Fang-like mouthparts
  • Ability to produce silk

Spiders are arachnids that live worldwide. They play an essential part in the ecosystem and help to stop insects from taking over our outdoor spaces. Though many people have a fear of spiders, these arachnids are regularly referred to as gardener’s best friend. Spiders help gardeners guard their plants and crops against destructive pests. However, when spiders move from our gardens to inside our homes, they are unwelcome pests.

Are spiders dangerous?

To hunt, spiders use specialized mouthparts, or fangs, to inject venom and paralyze their prey. Luckily most of the spiders that live near people, like wolf spiders, only have venom potent enough to harm their insect prey, not people. Though spider bites can be painful, in most cases, they don’t cause long-lasting symptoms.

However, some species of spiders living in our area, like the black widow spider, have venom strong enough to affect a person’s health if a bite occurs.

If you are spotting large numbers of spiders in or around your home, contacting a pest control professional is essential. Local Henderson, NV pest experts will be able to identify the spiders present and provide effective pest control solutions to remove them from your home.

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders live outside in various places; in fact, whenever you are outside, more than likely, spiders are lurking somewhere nearby. Spiders are predators and feed only on other living things. Some of their favorite prey are mosquitoes, flies, and garden pests. The more insect activity in or around your home, the more spiders will be drawn to your property. In addition to ample prey, our yards, gardens, and homes offer spiders plenty of harborage sites, places to lay their eggs, and water sources.

Where will I find spiders?

In our yards, things like trash or recycling bins, compost, pet food, gardens, fruit trees, exterior lights, and standing water attract both insects and spiders to a property. If you are suddenly noticing an increase in spiders living near or inside your home, it is an indicator that you have an overall pest problem on your property that you need to address.

Spiders usually don’t want to live inside our homes but move indoors while following their prey. While spiders don’t eat the food we store in our kitchens and pantries, they happily eat the insects that use our kitchens and pantries as foraging sites.

Common entry points that spiders take advantage of to move into our homes include spaces in the foundation, gaps along the roofline, gaps around windows and doors, and torn screens.

How can I prevent spiders in the future?

Helpful tips to prevent problems with spiders: 

  • Reduce hiding and nesting spots for spiders on your property by cutting the grass short and removing piles of leaves and dense vegetation from your yard. 
  • Cut back shrubs and bushes from the outside walls of your house; spiders use the branches to gain easy access to your home’s exterior. 
  • Stop spiders and insects from gaining easy access into your home by sealing cracks in the foundation and spaces around utilities.
  • Place covers over vents and drains. 
  • Maintain gutters, fix leaking pipes, repair foundation damage, and use dehumidifiers to eliminate excess moisture. 
  • Replace white outdoor lights with LED lights that are less attractive to insects.
