Spiders Pest Control: Beneficial Predators or Pests?

Spiders get mixed reviews when it comes to being considered pests. While many spiders help control other insect populations by preying on them, certain species can become a nuisance problem around homes and businesses. There are both harmless and potentially dangerous spiders found in Connecticut.

Beneficial spiders like jumping spiders, crab spiders, and cellar spiders are excellent insect hunters that rarely bother humans. However, infestations of "house spiders" like cobweb spiders and grass spiders can become unsightly nuisances when webs accumulate around doorways, corners, windows, and basements.

Perhaps the biggest spider concern for most people are the more venomous types. Black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, and yellow sac spiders all have necrotic venom that can be quite harmful, especially to the elderly, children, and those with compromised immune systems. Great care must be taken to avoid getting bit.

Signs of Spider Activity

Noticing an abundance of cobwebs around the home interior or exterior

Finding spiders inside, especially in bathrooms, basements, garages, etc.

Seeing spiders scurry away when moving boxes or items in storage
