Spiders   Photo


All spiders have two body regions (cephalothorax and abdomen), eight legs, and fangs (chelicerae). Spiders do not have wings or antennae. Most, but not all, spiders have eight eyes. Spiders are arachnids and are closely related to mites, ticks, and scorpions. A common spider species is the huntsman spider. They are a large species of spider and have large legs that extend from their bodies at a 90-degree angle. They are good hunters. They do not build webs to catch their prey. Instead, they chase after and "hunt" down their prey. Huntsman spiders come in various shades of brown. They have black spots on their legs and a lighter-colored band on their head.
Most of the spiders that live throughout the United States, including the huntsman spider, are not dangerous to people and are considered nuisance pests. However, there are a couple of species whose venom is strong enough to cause serious health problems in people. Care should be taken around all spiders and they should not be purposely handled. Spiders usually prefer to live outside, but do sometimes move inside buildings while following their prey. They may also move indoors if the weather becomes too hot, dry, or wet for them to live successfully outside.
To stop spiders from becoming a problem on your property and finding their way into your business, we suggest removing piles of wood, fallen trees, rock piles, and other piles of debris from your property that spiders can live and hide within, keeping your lawn trimmed short, trimming back tree branches, bushes, and shrubs away from the outside of your building, sealing all openings leading into your building through its exterior, placing weather stripping around windows and doors, eliminating as many water sources as possible by making sure gutters are clear of debris, and repairing leaky pipes, faucets, or fixtures.
