Spiders are found in every home in Utah. There are only a few that may pose life-threatening problems to humans. All spiders can cause problems with their webs. Knocking webs down will, not only make one's home look cleaner, but will help control the holistic spider population. Because spiders are predators, they are present wherever their prey (other bugs) is nesting.
(1/2 inch, shiny black, with red hour-glass on abdomen) Black Widows are found throughout Utah. They are usually found in the garage or crawlspace, but sometimes in basements. They are often found hanging upside down in their thick, sticky webs. Their bite feels like a needle prick. In worse occasions, some victims may start having convulsions and may even die.
Hobo Spiders are part of the Brown Recluse family and can leave a bite that deteriates the flesh. They are brown and their abdomens have several chevron shaped markings. Males have two large palps that look like boxing gloves, while females' palps are not swollen.re not 'swollen' as they are on the males. Females tend to have a larger abdomen when compared to males. own Recluse spiders are rarely seen. They prefer to be hidden indoors. They are found in closets, garages, and bedrooms. They will not normally bite unless pressed up against the skin. At first, the bite of the Brown Recluse does not hurt. After about 8 hours, the pain will increase. If not treated, the venom from the bite will start to eat away at the skin until a nasty scar is left.
Yellow Sac, Daddy Long Leg, Wolf, House, and Garden Spiders all help make the spider population in California. Many times these are the culprits to the spider bites that we encounter. Although these bites are not as serious as those of the Black Widow and Hobo Spider, they do often disturb the skin and cause itching.
