What Are Spiders?
Spiders are the largest arachnids on the planet and represent the #1 pest of our nightmares for people who suffer from arachnophobia. These eight-legged insects can be found on every single continent except Antarctica, due to freezing temperatures. 46,000 species of spiders have been classified by scientists, and more are discovered every day. They range in size from smaller than a dime to more than foot in leg span from end to end. The common feature aside from 8 legs is venomous fangs used to paralyze and kill their prey. Their primary food source is other insects and spiders, but the larger ones can prey on animals as big as a bird. Spiders catch their meal by trapping their prey in a web or chasing it. The spider web is the most common technique because spiders have terrible eye sight. Webs allow them to sense vibration when an unfortunate creature happens to bump into it. The majority of spiders only live a couple years, but certain species like the Tarantula (when kept as a pet) can survive for 20 or more.

Spider removal should be requested if you notice more than one. Unfortunately, these particular pests almost always find their way into your home or office at some point, squeezing through cracks and crevasses to get in. Its venom varies by species, with most bites not having any more of an effect on humans than a bee sting. However, in certain species, like the recluse or widow spiders, a bite could result in serious injury or death.
