Although some people enjoy spiders, the majority of the population would probably say that they’re not the biggest fans of them. And even if we are not scared of spiders and we understand their beneficial qualities, that doesn’t mean we want them in our homes.
Are spiders dangerous?
When you live in Texas, having spiders around in your house and outside on your property is a common occurrence. In some cases, these spiders are simply a nuisance. House spiders, for example, aren’t dangerous and don’t cause any real damage, but they can be annoying, especially if their populations get out of control. House spiders love to create, and then abandon, webs, which means, if you end up with more than a few in your house, spider web clean-up could become a full-time job.
Of course, there are also the kinds of spiders that are dangerous. Black widow and brown recluse spiders can both be found in Texas and both have venomous bites. Although they would much rather keep to themselves and live in seclusion, if the secluded spot they choose to live is somewhere in your home, it’s possible that you’ll come into contact with them at some point. And the results of that meeting could be very unpleasant.
Spider Prevention Tips
You may think that having spiders in your house is simply a nuisance that can be taken care of by removing the spiders as you see them. However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind when you start to see spiders popping up here and there.
Spiders can sometimes be an indication of a larger pest problem. If they are in your house, they are getting food from somewhere inside. Sometimes the presence of spiders means that you have another bug infestation.
Spiders like to hide. Just because you don’t see them, doesn’t mean they’re not there. Although most spiders won’t cause harm, eradicating them can be difficult because of their ability to hide. If you think you may have poisonous spiders in your home, trying to find and eradicate them on your own can be downright dangerous.
