Why do I have them?

In many cases, spiders are accidental invaders who have entered around doors, windows and other holes or openings. Although it varies by species, spiders primarily live outside, but will move indoors to find secure areas to build their webs and trap prey. 

Are spiders dangerous?

Most species are harmless and are merely considered a nuisance when they leave behind unsightly webs.  However, there are species that may bite with a result that can be compared to a wasp or bee sting.  In some people, an allergic reaction to the venom can occur, and/or medical attention may be required.
