While spiders are generally harmless and sometimes even beneficial, many people don’t want to see them in their homes. In Southern California, the worst spider to see is the venomous black widow, which is about 1.5 inches in length, is brown or black in color, and sports a reddish hourglass or triangle pattern on its body. Be sure to contact a doctor immediately if you’re bitten by a black widow spider.
While other spiders’ bites are generally harmless to humans, they can be avoided by shaking out shoes or clothing to ensure you don’t surprise a spider trapped inside.
Spiders generally enter homes through cracks in doors and around windows, or tears in window screens. They like dark, humid environments such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces. They can also build their webs on and around door frames, window casings, eaves, fences, and outdoor furniture.
To help prevent spiders from entering your home, ensure cracks and gaps in and around windows and doors are filled, clear your yard of tempting food and water sources, and keep trash bins well-secured away from your home.
Because spiders trap insects in their webs, the presence of spiders can mean the presence of other pests. Removing spider webs is an effective way to discourage the return of spiders, but it can be a lengthy process.
