Why Are Spiders In My Home?

In many cases, spiders are accidental invaders that 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. In other cases, spiders may spend their entire lives in your home, as it offers a secure, fruitful place for them to set up webs in undisturbed corners and capture whatever bugs they find.

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.
