Brown Recluse Spiders: There are many spiders that have venom and when they bite it can cause irritation. The brown recluse spider is one of the spiders that have a medically significant amount of venom that can be extremely dangerous to a person’s health. They are usually brown, tan or yellow in color and have long skinny legs that are usually quite a bit lighter in color than the body. They have a space on their body that is the shape of a violin on their back. If you suspect that a brown recluse spider has bitten someone in your home call your doctor and a pest control company right away.
Black Widow Spiders: The black widow spider is the most commonly talked about spider and they deserve some respect and fear. They are not a serious danger since the amount of venom is not substantial enough to cause any real serious health concerns unless there is some allergy. They are shiny black in color and have a bright red hour glass figure on their belly that sets them apart from other black spiders. They feed on insects that are caught in their web. They are not an aggressive species of spiders and will run off if they see someone coming their way. People are usually only bitten by an accident when someone grabs a shoe or piece of clothing that the spider is hiding in.
Wolf Spiders: This is a scary spider for people to come across since they care pretty large. They are big and hairy and they have extremely thick legs that can be pretty intimidating. If you have seen one hanging around it was probably in the ground since they do not live in a web but in the ground in a burrow somewhere.

They are usually a tan or grey color and have some darker lines and markings in them that set them apart and make them identifiable.
