What Kinds Of Spiders Can You Expect To Find In Orlando? 

There are lots of spiders that live in Orlando. Many have no interest in invading your home. The types of spiders you might see indoors include jumping spiders, crab spiders, wolf spiders, crevice spiders, house spiders, orb weaver spiders, brown recluse spiders, and black widow spiders. All of these arachnids can be separated into two categories, ground spiders or web spiders. Ground spiders hunt for their prey on the ground while web spiders build webs to catch their meals. 

Although most species of spiders are not dangerous, there are some local spiders that pose a direct risk to your health. We recommend avoiding black widows, brown widows, and brown recluse spiders. All three of these pests have incredibly painful and venomous bites. 

What To Do If You've Been Seeing Spiders In Your Home?

Seeing spiders inside your home does not mean your life is at risk. That said, there are some dangerous spiders in Orlando that can hurt you with their painful venom. For this reason, we highly recommend taking caution with spiders you see indoors. One thing you should learn is how to identify a bigger problem. Seeing a single spider once every few weeks is not a sign of an active infestation. What is a sign of an active infestation is spotting several spiders indoors, noticing baby spiders, or finding a spider egg sac. Often these eight-legged pests will find shelter inside secluded areas indoors. If they feel comfortable and have food to eat indoors (flies and/or other pests), they are likely to multiply.

Simple Spider-Prevention Tips 

In order to protect your home against spiders, you have to put in place some form of prevention. To help you deter these arachnid invaders, here are a few strategies to try today. 

  • Seal off holes, gaps, and cracks in your home’s exterior foundation using a caulking gun.
  • Make sure all of your window/door screens are in good condition.
  • Install door sweeps under exterior doors.
  • Replace damaged weatherstripping.
  • Keep exterior lights off at night or change white bulbs to yellow, insect-resistant, bulbs.

Fully sealing a home against pests is difficult. An easier way to keep out spiders is to invest in year-round pest control. For treatments you can trust, look no further than Green Flag Services.
