SPIDERS IN YOUR HOME CAN BE HARMFUL TO YOUR KIDS AND PETS!

YOU OFTEN WON'T SEE SPIDERS, YOU WILL ONLY SEE THEIR WEBS!

Spiders are invertebrate insects with two body segments and eight legs. Spiders prey on other insects including other spiders. Many spiders form webs in secluded areas which they use to catch food. Spider webs come in many forms and patterns and can be used to identify the spider type. Spiders prefer dark, secluded areas where they can hide and catch prey. Spiders consume other insects through internal and external digestion but do not have the necessary mouthparts to chew their prey. The purpose of spider venom is often to kill their prey, but is primarily used to start the digestion process before the insect is consumed.

DON'T LET THE SPIDER BITE!

Bites usually occur unexpectedly and can range from harmless to fatal. Spiders do not seek out human interaction but are rather prone to avoid confrontation. Bites usually occur when humans inadvertently encroach upon a spider's territory; like when reaching behind a rock, a chair or any other object in which a spider could reside. Spider bites also often occur during sleep. Spider bites create allergic reactions in humans which range from harmless but annoying pricks to necrotic wounds or fatal injections. Two dangerous types of spiders include the brown recluse and the black widow.
