For being such a small pest, spiders have a big presence in our lives and can pack an even bigger punch. Arachnids are a diverse group, with estimates suggesting there are close to a 1000 species across our state. Out of that large group, there are only a few of these 8 legged creatures that pose a serious threat. The most common spiders you’ll find across Texas are grass spiders, orb weavers, wolf spiders, and jumping spiders. None of them are harmful to humans, and most of them help keep flying insect populations in check—something we can all be thankful for. The main species we have to worry about in Texas are the famous Black Widow’s and Brown Recluse. Both of these spiders prefer dark places and like to keep to themselves, typically close to the ground. Both of these spiders are poisonous and should be avoided when seen. Here at 855Bugs we have strategies and means of keeping your property free from these pests. Give us a call today to find out about our Don’t Bug Me Plan, as well as to schedule a free inspection.
