With 3000 species of spiders living in North America, spider control is frequently a major concern for homeowners. Luckily, there are only two species of spiders in the southeastern United States that can cause serious harm when they are accidentally disturbed by humans – the black widow and the brown recluse.
Many species of spiders are commonly found in homes in the United States. Certain common household spiders spin webs over lamps, in corners, and in basements. While unsightly, these cobwebs cause no real harm. Under most conditions outdoors, spiders are considered to be beneficial because they feed on insects.
Spiders commonly found in homes in the southeastern United States include:
- Black Widow Spider
- Brown Recluse Spider
- House Spider
- Jumping Spider
- Long-bodied Cellar Spider
- Wolf Spider
