    These eight-legged insects are part of everyday life, yet an unexpected spider sighting will make almost anyone jump out of their skin. Typically, a tissue is all you need to take care of this pest, but sometimes, spiders invade your home and take over, causing fear and anxiety at every turn. Though most spiders are harmless, there are some poisonous ones that can invade your home. The Brown Recluse and Black Widow are spiders in North America whose venom is deadly and can take effect in minutes.

    Spiders invade homes in search of food, warmth, and water. With over 45,000 species of spiders, it’s difficult to differentiate between the harmless and deadly. Though some spiders are considered “good,” meaning they eat other annoying pests in your home, typically, these invaders are unwanted and cause discomfort for anyone who comes across them. Though one spider may seem like an insignificance, it may be an indication of a larger problem. Spiders reproduce at a rapid rate. One egg sac from a female can have over 3,000 eggs! Spiders lay their eggs in protected places like closets, dressers, under the sink, and any other hidden space in your home. So, once the sac hatches, there may be a much larger problem on your hands.
