As a Las Vegas homeowner, the last thing you want to deal with in your home is spiders. While only two spiders in the area can cause life-threatening issues, many spiders will bite, causing some uncomfortable symptoms. Not only that, but these pests can create numerous issues once they enter your home. If you are dealing with a spider infestation, protect yourself and your loved ones by contacting Las Vegas pest control professionals.

There are a large variety of types of spiders that live in Las Vegas; however, the most common house spiders include:

  • Black Widow Spiders
  • Brown Recluse Spider
  • Wolf Spider
  • Cellar Spider
  • Domestic House Spider
  • False Black Widow
  • Giant House Spider
  • Jumping Spider
  • Orbweaver

If you believe you've discovered any type of spider in your Las Vegas home, contacting pest control experts is best.

The Harm That Spiders Could Cause

While the vast majority of Las Vegas spiders in your home are typically not dangerous to pets or people, you can never be too safe from protecting yourself and your loved ones from the dangers that some spiders can cause. The two most dangerous types of spiders in Las Vegas are the black widow and the brown recluse. It's important to note that even these spiders are not intentionally harmful to humans. They will bite in defense if you accidentally brush up against them or trap them. However, a bite from a widow or recluse can cause significant harm, causing pain and spreading venom that can include neurotoxins or necrotic agents.

Symptoms of a venomous spider bite can consist of:

  • Pain
  • Blisters
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Rash
  • Severe headache
  • Abdominal and chest pain
  • Fever
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Chills

Both black widow spiders and desert brown recluse spiders have venom that is strong enough to trigger severe reactions that require medical attention. If you experience severe symptoms or suspect you've been bit by a venomous spider, contact your healthcare professional or visit the emergency room.

Five Natural Spider Deterring Tips

Spiders will enter your home in search of an area that provides shelter, food to hunt, and sources of moisture. Water sources can also attract insect prey to your Las Vegas property. Luckily for you, you can deter spiders from entering your Las Vegas home by:

  1. Clearing spiderwebs that you find in or around your home.
  2. Eliminating both indoor and outdoor clutter.
  3. Maintaining your property by including gardens, keeping the grass cut short, and pruning overgrown bushes and shrubs away from your home's exterior.
  4. Using caulk to repair cracks in exterior walls or the home's foundation to keep spiders and other pests outside.
  5. Placing a motion sensor on outdoor lights to keep them off when they are not needed.

By preventing spiders from entering your home, you can better protect yourself and your loved ones from the adverse effects of having an active infestation.
