Spider Control in St. Louis
Finding a spider web in your home can be an unsettling feeling. While most spiders are harmless and pose little to no danger to people, some species are venomous and a bite can lead to medical issues. The two most common venomous spiders in the U.S. are the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow.
How to Identify Venomous Spiders
Brown Recluse: A brown recluse can be identified by a dark brown violin shape on the cephalothorax (the portion of the body to which the legs are attached). The neck of the violin points backward toward the abdomen. Additionally, the Brown Recluse has six eyes, whereas most spiders have eight.
Black Widow: The body of an adult black widow is about 1/2 inch long. The female black widow is normally shiny black, with a red hourglass shape marking on the underside of the abdomen.
