Spiders As a Pest

Spiders are arachnids, distinguished by their eight legs and two main body parts: the cephalothorax and the abdomen. With over 48,000 known species globally, spiders are versatile predators that utilize silk for various purposes, from constructing webs to catching prey.


Southern California is home to a wide variety of spider species due to its diverse habitats. While there are many spider species in the region, several are more commonly found in and around homes. This includes the common house spider, cellar spiders (daddy long-legs), black widow, brown widow, and wolf & jumping spiders.

Spider Prevention

When spiders become unwelcome guests in our homes, it's usually due to their unsightly webs, the potential fear of bites, or simply their unexpected appearance. Notably, while many spiders do have venom, most are not harmful to humans. In Southern California, the primary spiders of medical concern are the Black Widow and its relative, the Brown Widow.


These spiders possess a venom potent enough to cause discomfort, but severe reactions are rare. For homeowners seeking peace of mind, prevention is the best approach. Regular cleaning can deter these arachnids, ensuring spaces are free from clutter where they might hide or spin their webs. Additionally, by sealing potential entry points like window gaps or cracks in the walls, one can reduce the chances of spiders venturing inside.
