Spiders Commonly Found in the New River Valley

There are millions of different spider species around the world, and many of them can be found right here in our own backyard. Some spiders are incredibly small, growing to barely larger than the tip of a pen, while others can measure several inches across. Likewise, each type of spider has different characteristics and preferences for where they spin their webs, what they like to feed on, and more.

We can handle issues with any kind of spider found in the New River Valley, such as:

  • House spiders
  • Wolf spiders

  • Sac spiders

What Spiders Are Venomous?

It’s a common misconception that some spiders are venomous while others are not. While the amount and potency of venom can vary, every spider actually has some level of venom. This venom is a key tool in their ability to hunt, allowing them to paralyze and digest their prey. However, most spiders will generally do everything they can to avoid people and won’t bite unless they feel threatened. 

Brown recluse and black widow spiders are the most dangerous types of spiders you might encounter around your home. If you are bitten by one of these spiders, we strongly recommend seeking medical attention as soon as possible, especially for the elderly, young children, and pets. 

While they may not be as dangerous, bites from other spiders will typically still be painful and can leave behind a nasty sore that can be extremely itchy. This means you should take any sign of a spider infestation seriously and reach out to us for assistance as soon as possible.

How We Eliminate Spider Problems

Spider control starts with a thorough inspection of your property to identify any hotspots and features that could be contributing to your spider infestation. Spiders love to hang out and build their nests in areas that provide cover and give them the ability to hunt. Some spiders prefer to hunt along the ground and are often found in wood piles, leaves, and lawn clippings or under large rocks. Others prefer to capture flying insects and can frequently be found near windows or up beneath the eaves of your roof. Our technicians will educate you on what draws spiders in and what you can do to prevent them from returning.

We’ll also go through and eliminate current nets and webs to remove spiders from around your home. This will prevent them from making their way inside, particularly during cooler weather. Finally, we can also treat for spiders with a pest barrier around the perimeter of your home, which can eliminate spiders before they are able to get inside or spin a new web.
