One spider in the home can already feel alarming to some, but dealing with an infestation can feel overwhelming, especially if you know all the concerns that come with it. If you are suddenly seeing more spider webs than you care to clean, start thinking about the best ways to identify the spiders in your home and consider letting a professional remove them for you altogether.
What kind of spiders will I have to watch out for in St. George?
Southern Utah is home to several distinct spider species, and it’s natural to fear them. These include the black widow spider, desert recluse spider, hobo spider, wolf spider, banded orb weaver spider, and ground spider.
The black widow spider and desert recluse spider are poisonous, with venomous bites warranting an immediate need for medical attention. Black widow bites will elicit various symptoms, such as fever, nausea, headaches, muscle cramps, torso pains, dizziness, and other ailments that accelerate over time. Desert recluse spider bites damage the skin and tissue, leaving an open wound that takes a while to heal. These spiders can be especially dangerous for young children and pets. If you do believe you’ve been bitten, be prepared to safely identify the spider and give all your symptoms to a medical professional, as symptoms may vary with the individual.
There are also non-poisonous spiders in the areas around St. George, such as the hobo spider, wolf spider, banded orb weaver spider, and ground spider. Their venom isn’t strong enough to harm humans, but their presence may signal another problem. Spiders of any species come to feed where there’s prey. If you start seeing more than just one or two common house spiders, it could signal a more significant pest infestation that needs to be dealt with.
What general concerns should I have?
An infestation of spiders can lead to anxiety and sleepless nights for those in your household that fear them the most. Certain allergies can be aggravated due to the presence of dead spiders, or the various pollen and debris that can be trapped in their webs. Just like any unwanted insect presence, an abundance of arachnids in your community, kitchen, and pantry areas will increase the risk of food contamination.
