House Spider

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

The House Spider

If you say “spider” most people develop “arachnophobia.” In fact, spiders are important, as predators, in the balance of certain insect populations within an ecosystem.

That ecosystem may be your own home. The house spider, Achaearanea tepidariorum (Koch), finds its fame from the fact they are most often seen in-doors. Statistically, you are more likely to see this spider’s “web-work” than the spider itself.

Reproduction

Produce an egg sac.

Are They Harmful?

Only two species are harmful to humans in the United States.

The House Spider

  • Voids where plumbing is located.
  • Voids behind electrical outlets.
  • Molding around windows and doorways.
  • The attic, crawl space and basement.
  • The soffits.
