What are house spiders?
As its name suggests, the house spider is the most common type of spider that you will find living in your home.
They are usually a yellowish color with a dirty white abdomen and some dark spots on the top of their body.
They will range in size from 3/16 to 5/16 of an inch.
They are commonly found in Tennessee and throughout the rest of the United States.
Are house spiders dangerous?
The common house spider is not dangerous. They are considered a nuisance pest when they establish unsightly webs in the corners of rooms and other areas of the house but do not cause any harm to humans.
Why do I have a house spider problem?
House spiders will enter homes, sheds, garages and other buildings for no real reason other than to get out of the heat and find a prey source. House spiders like to catch their prey in high humidity areas, which is why you often find their webs high up in buildings. They will build their webs in the corners of your ceilings, in windows and they especially love attic and garage spaces.
