Most Venomous Spiders; Black Widows & Brown Recluses
The two spider species that pose a big threat to humans is the black widow and brown recluse spider. Both spiders keep to themselves unless they are disturbed. Here are some identifying features of each one.
Black Widow– The black widow is identified by the shiny black body and red hourglass shape on the underside of the abdomen. With messy webs, they are most often found outside in bushes or wood piles, but can occasionally make their way indoors.
Brown Recluse– Ranging in color from tan to dark brown, they have a dark brown or black fiddle shaped marking behind their head on the top of their back. Their bite is especially lethal and these spiders should always be avoided. They are usually found in dark places like crawl spaces and basements when indoors.
Spider Infestations in the Fall
In preparation for the winter months, spiders are most often active in the fall. This is when most of them are laying their eggs that will hatch in the spring. You may notice they try to make their way into your house during this time of year.
