Types of Spiders in Utah

There are several different types of spiders in Utah, though these are ones you’re most likely to encounter. Hobo spiders, which are often confused with the brown recluse spiders, may cause a painful bite. Black widows can also cause a painful bite, which may be lethal for some individuals. Wolf spiders are more likely to stay outside and don’t spin webs, while orb weaving spiders may come inside to lay their eggs. Spider extermination companies should have experience with all of these species.

How to Get Rid of Spiders?

You’ve likely heard of many home remedies for getting rid of spiders, like peppermint oil or vacuuming up the webs. However, if you’re determined to solve your spider problem correctly, your best bet is to consult a professional spider extermination company. With the right experience, they can quickly and effectively remove the spiders with their specified techniques. After the initial pest inspection, they may use chemicals or employ other methods, depending on the species and size of the infestation.

How to Spot a Black Widow Spider

One of the common problems with spiders is that people have a difficult time identifying them. Luckily, black widow spiders tend to be fairly easy to recognize by their red hourglass markings. Not every spider will have one, especially if they are young or male, though they are usually black and hairless. The markings in male or young black widow may be brown or white, and their bite isn’t as powerful.

How to Identify a Brown Recluse

While you may think you have an infestation of brown recluse spiders, they can be tricky to identify since they look so much like other species. A pest inspection can help you be sure. Brown recluse spiders have six eyes and a brown, violin-shaped mark on their bodies. They only have two colors, usually a darker brown for the mark and a lighter brown for their bodies. If their leg color is darker than their body color, or it has stripes, it’s probably not a brown recluse.

Spider Extermination and Web Dusting

A spider exterminator may have various techniques for getting rid of spiders, including web dusting. They may recommend you remove certain plants outside your home, that you provide a better seal for windows and doors, or clean specific parts of your house more often. If other bugs are entering your home, they’re providing a food source for spiders. You may need to eliminate outdoor lighting or package food more securely. While extermination experts can be effective, you’ll want to make sure the spiders don’t come back.
