Spiders

Brown Recluse Spider

Also known as the violin spider, or fiddle back spider because of the spiders distinct markings that looks like a violin on its back.  The brown recluse spider is usually not found in it irregular shaped web but rather walking around in search for food and water.  Feeds on other insects especially the silverfish.  Older homes and homes with shake roofs tend to be more abundant  with the brown recluse due to food supply level.  Brown Recluse can be difficult to control because of its ability to hide so well. Hence the name recluse. 

Black Widow Spider

Black widow spider

The most venomous spider in North America.  Only the female black widow is dangerous to humans.   Females usually have a reddish hourglass shape on the underside.   In most instances they avoid homes,  but you can find them in outside areas like porches, sheds and garages.   Only the female black widow bites humans, and she bites only when disturbed, especially while protecting her eggs. Good news is thru years of spraying the black widow is one of the easiest spiders to control.

Cellar Spider

Oh yes I get blamed for every thing.  I am mistaken for brown recluse and cause panic thru out Springfield mo homes.  I am every where in Springfield.  Love damp cool basements.  Low light areas and you will find me hanging in corners of your garage and basement.  Don't  want to see me you better get busy knocking down webs and egg sacs.  Good thorough spraying keeps me at bay

Black and Yellow Spider

Such a beautiful spider.  Very short life span.  The female will attach her egg sac to her web and lay somewhere around 300 to a 1,000 plus eggs.  The spider lings will hatch in fall but will remain in egg sac until spring arrives. 

Wolf Spider

 Wolf spiders are usually brown, grey, black or tan, with dark markings.  Wolf spider hunts its prey at night.  When spotted in homes is often confused as a  tarantula.   The wolf spiders color helps it  camouflage itself from  predators.  The female wolf spider is known to be aggressive when carrying her egg sac or spider lings on her back.
