Spiders are abundant here in Southwest Florida, but they don’t have to a part of your lifestyle. Almost all Spiders found in Florida are harmless to humans and most species do not attempt to bite unless they are provoked. Spiders usually remain hidden and do not seek out humans to bite. Most Spiders cannot penetrate the skin of a human with their fangs. Almost all Spiders possess venom, but only a few are considered dangerous to humans.
Most Spiders build webs to trap flying insects. Web building Spiders may build several webs per year and abandon them. These webs are produced form glands on the Spiders abdomen. The silk web is a liquid which hardens when exposed to the air. This silk webbing is used to construct webs, safety lines, egg sacs, and as a parachute to long distance travel.
Other types of Spiders search for their prey. Then hide and wait for them to pass. As their pray passes they will jump on or chase their pray down before biting them with their fangs. These types of Spiders are called hunting Spiders.
Spiders can be identified by their having 8 legs and only 2 body segments. This means they are not an insect but a member of the arachnid family.
Controlling Spiders indoors may involve nothing more than vacuuming up the Spiders and webs. Outside Spider control could involve sweeping down Spiders and webs or pressure cleaning the exterior of your home. Keeping outside lights turned off will eliminate attracting insects which will draw Spiders to those areas.
