What kinds of spiders are there in California homes?
There are many different kinds of spiders in California. Spiders are common throughout the state, but they can be a nuisance for homeowners. If you have a problem with spiders in your home or business, it’s important to know how to recognize them.
Some species spin webs inside buildings. These webs may become very large over time as more spiders build their nests on top of existing ones (this is known as “webbing”). This can cause problems such as clogging drains with debris from broken webs when people clean them out with water or other tools.
There are about 2,700 species of spiders in California. Spiders are important to the ecosystem because they eat other insects and bugs that can be harmful to humans and pets. They also play an important role in controlling pest infestations.
Are spiders dangerous?
Spiders have been unfairly stigmatized by Hollywood movies like “Arachnophobia” and “Eight Legged Freaks,” but they’re not dangerous or aggressive toward people or pets. You probably won’t even notice your house has been invaded by thesecritters unless you see one scurrying across your kitchen floor every now and then.
Most species of spiders do not bite people, and those that do will only be interested in biting if they are threatened or disturbed.
If you do get bitten by a spider (even if it’s just a slight nip), there’s no need to panic; the symptoms are usually mild and go away without treatment within 24 hours. However, it’s still important to identify what kind of critter has bitten you so that your doctor knows what kind of antivenom might be needed if things get worse.
What are ways to prevent spiders in your home?
- Keep your house clean. Spiders will be less likely to come inside if there are no crumbs and dust around, so be sure to vacuum regularly.
- Remove clutter from corners and under furniture where spiders like to hide.
- Make sure there are no holes or cracks in your house that could allow a spider entry, such as gaps around baseboards and window frames, missing shingles on roofs (particularly flat roofs), etcetera…
