Many people fear or dislike spiders but, for the most part, spiders are beneficial because of their role as predators of insects and other arthropods, and most cannot harm people. Spiders that might injure people--for example, black widows--generally spend most of their time hidden under furniture or boxes, or in woodpiles, corners, or crevices. The spiders commonly seen out in the open during the day are unlikely to bite.
The Black Widow Spider gets its name from the popular belief that the female eats the male after mating, although this rarely happens in nature.
Black widow spiders are most recognized for the red hourglass shape under their abdomen.
Indoors, black widows prefer the undisturbed and cluttered areas of garages, basements and crawl spaces.
Black widows spin irregular webs, which they usually build at night.
To get rid of or prevent black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, hobo spiders, yellow sac spider and golden orb weaver spiders from entering your home, we recommend a Spider Service - One Time, Annually, Semi Annually, Quarterly, and Monthly services.
