How often do you find spiders inside your home? Some people have gotten used to seeing these eight-legged pests indoors all the time.

Spider Behavior: How They Hunt, Feed, And Mate

Not all spiders are the same. Many local species are not what you would expect. To make things simple today, we are going to be talking about the two main types of spiders here in Bryan: web spiders and ground spiders. Web spiders are typically hairless and have large abdomens with long, skinny legs. As their name suggests, these pests build webs. Sometimes, these webs are intricate. Other times, they are disheveled and abstract.

Ground spiders do not build webs. They hunt from the ground and often have hairy, flat bodies and thick legs. Both ground and web spiders feed on their prey by injecting them with venom before sucking out their insides. As for mating, different species have different processes. To find out what types of spiders are inside your home, bring in our team for a quick inspection. 

Spider Problems: Why You Don't Want These Arachnids In Your Home

Living with spiders is not always a direct threat to a person’s health. These pests are often completely harmless.

Keeping this in mind, all spiders are annoying. They often build webs indoors and can give people a good fright. There are also some types of spiders locally that have dangerous bites. Although there has not been a death related to a spider bite in a long time, there is still the risk of moderate to severe pain and a myriad of uncomfortable symptoms associated with certain arachnids and their venom. If you ever experience a severe reaction after a bite, seek medical attention.
