What is the Best Environment for Spiders?
The state of Texas provides ample resources for spiders to thrive multiply and grow. There are hundreds of species of spiders crawling around our state like the American house spider with its long skinny legs and comb like hair on the backs of its ankles. The American House Spider is known for its “Halloween” like webs that are left around homes, patios and other parts of your property. The Bark Crab Spider is another spider in Texas that can be found crawling around forests, parks and tree bark. These spiders are active hunters and do not spin a web for hunting. Bark crab spiders resemble a crab by walking sideways. The black and yellow garden spider, the bold jumping spider, the Carolina wolf spider and many other spider species call Texas home.
How Do Your Protect your Home from Venomous Spiders?
Texas is home to two main venomous spider species; the brown recluse and black widow. These spiders pose a serious threat to humans due to their venomous bites. The brown recluse spider closely resembles the shape of a violin and has six eyes. The brown recluse spider usually can be found around loose piles of debris outdoors. Many brown recluse bite victims put on clothing that was left on the floor and are bitten as a defense against pressure and crushing felt by the spider inside the clothing. The brown recluse is not naturally aggressive but will bite when it feels threatened. The black widow spider is black with a red shaped hour glass symbol underneath its abdomen. Like the brown recluse spider, the black widow is not naturally aggressive but will bite if it feels threatened. Many black widow spider bites occur when someone has reached into a dark area on a shelf or other space that is rarely disturbed.
