Spider Pest Control Services

Spiders are a common sight in Arizona, especially during the summer months. While most of these eight-legged creatures are harmless and beneficial to have around, there are some species that can be dangerous and cause health or safety risks if they get too close for comfort.

The most common kinds of spiders found in the Arizona desert include wolf spiders, black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, tarantulas, and camel spiders. Wolf spiders are typically gray or brown and can grow up to two inches long. They are nocturnal hunters that spend their days hiding in quiet places like under rocks or logs. Black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders are both venomous, with black widows having a red hourglass shape on their backside. They prefer to hide in dark places like woodpiles, garages, and sheds. Tarantulas are large hairy spiders that can grow up to four inches long and have a painful bite. Lastly, camel spiders are brownish-orange and have a leg span of up to six inches. They can be found in the desert, but they don’t spin webs and generally aren’t considered dangerous.

If you suspect that you may have an infestation of spiders in your home or yard, look for signs like webs around windows or doors, cobwebs in dark corners, or a general increase in spider activity. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to contact a pest control professional who can help identify the species and eliminate them safely and effectively.

It’s important to remember that some spiders are venomous and can cause health problems if bitten. Black widow and brown recluse spiders are the most dangerous species in Arizona and their bites can cause severe reactions such as nausea, fever, muscle cramps, and pain at the bite site. If you’re bitten by one of these spiders, it’s essential to seek medical attention right away.

Now that you know more about the common spiders found in Arizona, it’s important to remain vigilant and check for signs of an infestation. If you think you may have a problem, don’t hesitate to contact our pest control professionals for help.
