Removing Dangerous Spiders from Your Texas Home
Spiders can cause extreme fear and anxiety when found in your home. While every home is different, Fulcrum Pest Control is confident that we can provide effective ongoing solutions to help you keep these pests out of your home as consistently as possible.
The phrase “Everything's bigger in Texas” unfortunately also applies to our spiders. In addition to common house spiders, Texas is also home to some large and dangerous spiders.
The two most common venomous spiders found in Texas are the brown recluse and black widow.
- The brown recluse is a medium-sized spider, reaching ¼ or ½ an inch in body length. However, their bites can be painful, causing blisters and even fever. These bites heal slowly and may become infected.
- The black widow is a notorious spider that builds webs close to the ground. Their bites are very painful and can compromise the nervous system, causing vomiting, fever, stomach cramps, and difficulty breathing.
The most common non-venomous spiders in Texas are the American house spider, wolf spider, and jumping spider. The largest of these spiders is the wolf spider. It can reach up to two inches in body length - and that doesn't include the legs.
While not considered dangerous, these non-venomous spiders should not be ignored. Keep your home and yard free of these pests with experienced spider control specialists from Fulcrum Pest Control.
