Spiders in the home often go unnoticed, which can make them all the scarier. It’s a problem you may not realize you have until you stumble across a spiderweb or — worse — the spider itself.
House spiders range from relatively harmless to dangerous, but even the harmless ones are unwanted pests. Saela offers in-home inspections to identify potential spider entry points. In addition to this kind of preventive care, Saela is a spider pest control company whose service specialists will take care of any and all house spiders using a pet and human-friendly formula. Learn more about the 10 most common types of spiders found in homes that Saela can take care of for your peace of mind.
The brown recluse spider is brown with a distinct violin-shaped marking on the top of its head and down its back. These spiders like to hangout in undisturbed corners of a home, such as in a basement, a shed, or even under a pile of clothes in a closet or inside shoes that aren’t often worn. The bite of a brown recluse is extremely dangerous and requires immediate medical attention. Saela service specialists are experts in brown recluse extermination.
If a brown recluse spider is found in your home, contact Saela right away for spider pest control and a service specialist will be on site to take care of the problem in 24 to 48 hours.
Easily recognizable with its black body and the red hourglass marking on its abdomen, black widow spiders are even more dangerous than brown recluse spiders — even deadly. Black widow spiders like to hide in corners, edges, mailboxes, garages, even tall grass. Anyone with a black widow bite should head to the emergency room right away. Thankfully, Saela service specialists are also experts in black widow extermination.

Hobo spiders are typically a tan color mottled with dark and light spots. Although they usually live outdoors, hobo spiders may occasionally venture indoors and hide in clothing, shoes and beds. While their bite is not deadly, it is painful and causes pain and swelling at the location of the bite. Symptoms typically improve in 24 hours with the use of ice and over the counter painkillers. By the time the bite feels better, Saela service specialists will have taken care of the problem.
A pale beige or yellow color with a dark v-shape on its body, these spiders like to hide during the day in little tent-like webs and hunt at night. Their webs are usually found at the top corners of walls in spaces like living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. Although they typically don’t bite, people with compromised immune systems or pre-existing health conditions may be at risk of hospitalization if they are bitten by a yellow sac spider.
Although you may not know this spider on sight, you would probably recognize its web. Orb weaver spiders vary in appearance but are most often colored brown or gray. They may build webs around the outside of a home or on a deck, especially if there is outdoor lighting that attracts bugs. Their bite is considered harmless.
These spiders are often confused with the brown recluse spider but their bite is harmless. They tend to hang around the foundations of homes, but have been known to make their way inside homes when seeking a mate.
There are over 300 different kinds of jumping spiders and they all look a little different. They don’t build webs but are active daytime hunters, so you may spot them scurrying around during the day. They do bite but their bite is considered nonthreatening.
The American house spider is small with a round abdomen, usually gray with white markings. They like dark, concealed areas and can often be found near windows where flies are active. Although completely harmless, their webs look tangled and messy — not ideal home decor.
There are over 200 species of wolf spider in the U.S., and they range in size. They tend to be found in garages, basements, and sheds where a lot of insects also can be found. They don’t spin webs to catch insects and would prefer to hide rather than bite a human.
A very well-known spider distinguished by its round body and long, thin legs. These spiders typically reside outside, but all spiders may seek entry into homes during colder months. These spiders are harmless to humans.
