Utah Spiders

Spiders are one of the most feared creatures by humans even though they are usually harmless in this region. While most house spiders do not pose any high threats to people, there is still a possibility of encountering common spider species in Utah.

Common Utah Spiders 

The most common Spider Species in the area consists of:

These spiders listed above are generally harmless to humans. Dangerous spider species in this region include the Black Widow, a poisonous spider, or the Brown Recluses. There are few poisonous spiders in Utah due to the climate that includes seasonal weather and frequent temperature changes.

Where Are The Spiders Living?

House spiders tend to live in quiet, hidden spaces. Since spiders need water to live, you can find them dwelling in dark places near your plumbing. To keep spiders at bay, make sure your under-sink areas are clean and organized. Other common hiding places for spiders are stairwells, attics, garages, crawl spaces, sheds, closets, and underneath stairs. No matter the type of spider, it is important to enlist the service of a professional spider exterminator for your home or business. 

Why Do Spiders Get Inside My Home?

Spiders love to catch insects and flies that get into your home or surround it, which spiders feed on. In Utah, a main reason is that they want to get warm as the seasons change. Spiders can’t live in freezing weather and need a place to hide and lay eggs. 

How Can I Prevent Spiders From Getting into My Home?

Some of the things you can do to prevent spiders from getting into your home include:

The Importance of Yearly Spider Treatment

The best time to schedule a professional spider control service in Utah is early spring, mid-summer, and fall because this is the most productive part of the year for spiders in Utah. We recommend the first spray of the year follows the snow melt when temperatures are warming up through the 50s. For Northern Utah, that usually means the end of February or early March. Routine spider inspections and spider treatments are important for a spider-free home year-round. 

Spider Bites 

The most common interaction with spiders is spider bites. Spider bites are overall harmless. They commonly cause swelling, minor irritation, and muscle twitches. 

How Do I Treat My Spider Bite?

Treatment commonly includes cleaning the bite, applying ice, and watching for infection. Seek medical attention if the bite gets worse after 24 hours. Look out for things like increased pain around the bite, spreading redness, and fluid flowing from the bite.
