In addition to various other common, non-lethal spiders, these three spiders are commonly found in residential homes.
These notorious and solitary spiders are less than 1.5 inches long, black with a red, hourglass shaped body. Their venom is rarely fatal to adults but have been known to kill the elderly, children and those with compromised immune systems.
Less than a half inch long and brown, the brown recluse is another venomous spider that should be taken seriously. A healthy female can produce over 150 offspring in a year (according to livescience.com).
Less than 1.5 inches in size, these spiders do not spin webs but chase down their prey instead. Their venom is not poisonous, but it is possible to experience an allergic reaction.
These spiders mainly survive off of insects, therefore it is important to minimize the presence of bugs in your house. Spider webs are a clear sign of a spider’s presence, but they can also live in small cracks and crevasses throughout your home.
