Keeping Spiders Out Of Your Greater Chicago Home

Finding spiders in your house is inevitable. Unless you move to Antarctica, the only continent without spiders, these arachnids will find their way into your home at some point. Houses often experience an uptick in spider activity as the weather cools down in the fall, and spiders start making their way inside to find warmer accommodations. Still, regardless of the time of year, it’s likely that you can find spiders in your house that you don’t want there.

Although there’s typically nothing to worry about when you find a spider or two in your Greater Chicago home, they can become a problem if they have a steady food supply and begin to reproduce. If you have more spiders in your house than you want, it may be time to contact EcoGuard Pest Control. Our spider control service will protect your home and family from unwanted nuisance and dangerous spiders.

What Kinds Of Spiders Are You Likely To Find Around Your Greater Chicago Home?

Greater Chicago is home to many different kinds of spiders. While most of them are harmless, there are some species of spiders in Illinois that are venomous and can cause problems if you are bitten. Even nuisance spiders can be a problem since they build unsightly webs throughout your house and can be an indication of another pest infestation. As a homeowner, knowing the types of spiders you may encounter in your Greater Chicago home can be helpful.

Black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders are the two most well-known venomous spiders, and both are active in the Greater Chicago area. Although the chances of dying from the bite of one of these spiders is tiny, they are still a danger to your health. Black widow bites typically result in fever, nausea, and increased blood pressure. You should seek out medical treatment in the event of a black widow spider bite. Brown recluse spiders also deliver venomous bites that should be seen by a medical professional if you receive one since these bites cause skin and tissue necrosis.

Basement spiders, also known as cellar spiders or daddy long legs, are common nuisance spiders frequently found in Greater Chicago homes. There are many myths about these spiders' venom and ability (or inability) to bite humans, but the truth of the matter is that these spiders are harmless to humans. Yellow sac spiders are another common spider to find in homes in our area. Although they can deliver painful bites, most people won’t experience any serious symptoms from those bites. In fact, yellow sac spider bites are often confused for bed bug bites.
