Questions about Spiders

There are myths and misconceptions about spiders, but the truth is that most of them are harmless. We believe that a spider control service is a perfect solution for your spider problems!

Can a Spider Bite you?

Spiders come in different shapes, sizes and colors. However, they do not get inside your house (except for a few exceptions). Due to their unique body characteristics and their potent neurotoxins, only spiders will bite you. All other insects do not possess this particular capability. Instead of harming humans or pets, spiders are beneficial to the environment.

Do Spiders fly?

Spiders have been found to use the earth’s electric field to stay airborne and survive through ballooning. So far, scientists have found that spiders can fly almost as well as bees. If a spider is trapped, the best thing you can do is keep it in a ziplock bag so that it does not dehydrate out or starve to death. In some cases, your local exterminator may use a safe capture method which involves sticky sheets and plastic wrap.

Are All Spiders Poisonous?

Most spiders are venomous, but so far, only the widow and black widows are capable of killing humans. Keep in mind that all spiders will let go of their venom if they are young and do not have fully formed fangs. It is also crucial to note that most spiders eat each other. So even though a spider may be poisonous, it will not attack you if you do not behave like prey.

Types of Spiders that Can Be Found in San Jose

There are over 40,000 types of spiders, so it is not surprising that all of them are not capable of living in the exact location.

Black Widow or Latrodectus Hesperus

Black Widow

The black widow spider is one of the most recognized spiders, known for its distinctive black color. When you encounter this spider, it may look dull and can be easily confused with other harmless species. However, its distinctive red hourglass marking on the underside of its belly is what makes it recognizable. If the spider bites you, it will not inject any venom. Instead, it will leave a small red mark on your skin which will soon go away.
Brown Recluse or Loxosceles Reclusa

Brown Recluse

The brown recluse spider is unique because it appears to have a violin mark on its back. It also has six eyes instead of most spiders that only have eight eyes. Its presence in houses and properties is sporadic, but when you encounter this spider, it may enter your home carrying boxes and other items. They can also get inside the house by latching onto boxes, clothing and boots.
Orb-weavers or Araneidae

Orb Spiders

The orb spider gets its name because it makes a circular web that is usually found in corners. It is one of the enormous spiders, growing up to 2 inches in length. They are found throughout the world and have eight eyes. Their fangs and venom are not harmful to humans, but their bite can be pretty painful if they are not cautious about where they live and what they eat.
