The ones to fear

Spiders have definitely been given a bad rap. Sure, they look freaky but the biggest reason for fear is for the several arachnids that bite and inflict pain and death. People are afraid of sharks and bears for those reasons, however they don’t typically sneak inside your house. Spiders do and it’s something to be cautious of. Bull’s Eye Pest Control is skilled at spider removal and keeping your home free of these scary invaders. In California, these are a few of the spiders to keep an eye out for:

The recluse spiders

California has several types of recluse spiders. They all look very similar to each other, though their size and coloring may be a little different. The most common ones are the Arizona recluse, the Baja recluse, the Chilean recluse, the desert recluse, Martha’s recluse and Russell’s recluse. All these spiders are often mistaken for the brown recluse, but the brown recluse doesn’t live in California. However, these recluse spiders are known to cause the same reaction and are just as dangerous so beware.

The widow spiders

California has two types of widow spiders, the black widow and the brown widow. The black widow is the most commonly known with its shiny, black body and red hourglass marking on its abdominal underside. The brown widow is a tan or dark brown color. This spider also has the hourglass shape but one some spiders it’s red and on others it’s a brown color. Both of these widow spiders are equally dangerous and can cause severe reactions, eventually leading to death if medical attention is not sought immediately.
