Common House Spiders – Pest Control

There are more than 3,000 types of spiders found in North America alone. Of those, some common house spiders are more likely to be encountered in our homes than others. The common house spider is the spider most often encountered indoors. They are yellowish brown in color, with a dirty white abdomen featuring several dark stripes meeting at an angle. They create tangled webs to catch their prey.

These common house spiders are considered mere nuisance pests, and pose no threats to humans. They often have a difficult time surviving in modern homes due to low humidity and fewer insects for food. However, since spiders are considered nature’s pest control creature, it could signal other pest infestation that you might not be aware of.
