The Nature of Spiders

Spiders have an essential role in our environment by helping us keep insect populations in check. However, some spiders are harmful to humans. Spider venom usually results in a slight inflammation, uncomfortable sensation, itching, or swelling in humans. In some cases, there is a more severe reaction to spider bites for humans who are sensitive to spider bites or have other medical conditions.

You will find that spiders live in basements, crawl spaces, attics, air vents or in main living areas, in windows or ceiling corners. Sometimes they hide in dark places. Some action you could take to reduce spider infestation includes keeping the perimeter of your home or structures clean, sealing cracks and crevices, repairing all broken screens and weather stripping, reducing unnecessary lighting outside your home and maintaining adequate cleanliness around your home.

Spiders Make a Mess

Typically, spiders do not cause significant damage to homes. However, they certainly can make a mess. They also may worsen cracks and rotten areas that they use to get in and out of the house. Spiders lay eggs protected by a silk egg sac. Some spiders also use their silk to make webs to catch prey. While most spiders may be helpful in combating pest populations, it is understandable that many people do not want webs and numerous spiders around their homes.

Common Spiders

As you likely know, there are many different species of spiders. In North America, there are around 4,000 species that can be found around humans. In Ontario, you can expect to see some of the following types of spiders:

  • Common house spider
  • Long-bodied cellar spider
  • Sac spiders
  • Jumping spiders
  • Wolf spiders
  • Barn funnel weaver
  • Grass spider
How Spiders Invade

These are some of the most common species and types of spiders to live in and around homes. You may find some other species in the garden, the garage or other exterior parts of the home. For the most part, these species are relatively small and pose no danger to humans.

Some spiders weave webs that catch flies and other insects. Other types of spiders, including wolf and jumping spiders, are hunters that look for and attack insects and other pests. Crab spiders, which may be found in the garden and on flowers, ambush unsuspecting insects that fly by.

Are Spiders Dangerous?

There are only two species of spiders in North America that are considered significantly dangerous to humans, the brown recluse spider, and the black widow. Neither of the species is known to commonly live in Ontario.
