All spiders have two body regions (head and abdomen), eight legs, are wingless, and lack antennae. These arachnids are predators and feed on a variety of nuisance and garden insects, helping to control their populations. All spiders also have spinnerets at the end of their abdomens that they use to produce silk. However, while all spiders produce silk, not all spiders build webs. Those that don't build webs use their silk for things like lining their burrows, wrapping up prey, and climbing.In the Las Vegas area, some of the most common species of spiders invading our homes and yards are listed below:
Black widow spiders have round, shiny black bodies with a red "hourglass" marking on the underside of their abdomens. Some may also have lighter red or white markings on their abdomens and backs.
Wolf spiders are dark brown with pale or yellowish markings. Their large, robust body and powerful legs are covered in hair. These spiders are hunters, creating burrows where they then wait for prey to come by.
Spiders are not known to spread diseases and most of the species that people come into contact with don't have potent enough venom to pose serious health risks for people. However, there are still some spider species that are dangerous and do have venom capable of causing serious health problems. In our area, dangerous venomous spiders include the black widow spider and the desert recluse spider. If you find either of these species on your property, a pest control professional should be contacted to eliminate them safely.
Spiders seek refuge in dark, secluded places, and our homes and yards offer many hidden spots for spiders to build their webs and burrows. Our properties also provide ample areas for a variety of insects that spiders feed on. Like all pests, spiders live near their food sources.
Spiders are reclusive by nature and prefer to stay out of sight. Gardens, tall grass, woodpiles, rock crevices, window shutters, wooden shingles, and areas under decks can all function as sources of shelter for spiders. While these pests prefer the outdoor life, they will move inside homes, garages, and sheds through cracks and other openings in the exterior to escape harsh weather or while chasing down prey. Inside, spiders will hide in dark, quiet areas and usually gravitate to the corners of rooms, closets, basements, attics, and under furniture.
