What are Spiders?
There are more than 45,000 known species of spiders, found in habitats all over the world, but only a handful are considered to be dangerous and 27 species are known to cause human fatalities.
Spiders are attracted to warm, dark small spaces, like wall cracks, corners, air vents and in the washroom. But some prefer the outdoors, weaving their webs in your garden or near your outside lighting.
Most spiders are carnivorous, either trapping flies and other insects in their webs, or hunting them down. Spiders inject their prey with digestive fluids, then suck out the liquefied remains. All spiders do not build webs, but every species produces silk to climb, to create egg sacs, to wrap up prey, to make nests, etc.
Most spider species have six to eight eyes. However, they cannot see well. Although most common spiders at home are not really harmful, they can be a nuisance because of their webbing and can induce fear to some people.
How do spiders get into your home?
Spiders tend to enter homes in two main ways:
- Through open windows or doors.
- Through cracks and gaps around door and window frames.
Spiders will typically enter your home looking for food and shelter. The other common method of entry is accidental by hitchhiking inside boxes, on outdoor items, and numerous other things that are brought inside your home or business premises.
Signs of Spider Infestation

- Looking for spiders in their known hideouts like basements, sheds, walls, and crevices.
- Signs of spider egg sacs and fecal matter.

- You may also find some spider species hiding out in attics, closets, wall junctions, and storage boxes.

Some people have an extreme fear of spiders known as Arachnophobia. But overall spider webs and other signs of spiders can make your home seem dirty, at the same time more dangerous. Although most species are harmless, a spider infestation in your home can be dangerous:
Although spiders are known to bite in defense only, some bites can be extremely venomous. Spider species like black widows, brown recluse spiders, and wolf spiders are some of the most common and dangerous spiders found in Canada.
