Frequently Asked Questions About Spiders

What are spiders?

Spiders belong to the scientific classification of arachnids, and they are one of the most diverse groups of species on the planet. Spiders are characterized by their eight legs, six to eight eyes, and fangs, which deliver varying amounts of venom depending on the species. In our areas of Goldsboro, NC, most of the types of spiders you will encounter are common house spiders, though some spider species, like the black widow, may present more serious issues on your property.

Arrest A Pest Exterminators will provide you with spider identification in Goldsboro to help you figure out which pest is on your property and the best methods of treatment.

Are spiders dangerous?

Most spiders that you will encounter aren’t likely to be particularly harmful, and they will generally be more afraid of you and attempt to hide instead of attacking. However, spider bites can be painful, and they may trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. More dangerous spiders like the black widow also inhabit our area, and bites from this spider may result in a range of serious medical issues.

Additionally, spiders are frightening, and dealing with a widespread infestation on your property may result in fear, anxiety, and stress until the problem is dealt with by our professional team.

Why do I have a spider problem?

Spiders are typically opportunistic, and they tend to flock to properties where they have easy access to food, moisture, and secluded sheltering spaces. If your property has lots of pest prey for spiders to eat, cluttered areas inside and outside, and moisture issues, you are more likely to develop a spider infestation at some point.

Where will I find spiders?

Spiders tend to hide in dark and secluded locations. Prime spider hiding spots outdoors include around wood piles or piles of debris, underneath decks, and behind plant pots. Once they invade interior areas, you may find spiders at the backs of closets or cabinets, in garages, around basements, and in attics or other storage spaces.
