There are over 4,000 different species of spiders in North America, and Southern Utah is home to 621 of them. While each of those species has venom, only a few types of Southern Utah spider bites can cause sickness in people: the black widow, hobo, wolf spider, yellow sac, camel, and huntsman. Their bites can be very painful and will likely require a trip to the ER.
Most spiders try to avoid humans and will not attack unless threatened. They like open air and dry heat. A few types—like the yellow sac spider—prefer dark, secluded nooks and may be holed up in the corners and crevices of your house.
Even if a spider is harmless, no one likes having it in their home. Spider bites can cause allergic reactions, and their webs are a nuisance. Here are a few simple tips you can follow to keep spider infestations at bay.
These tips can be effective; however, it is always best to call in the experts.
