Dangerous Spiders In Las Vegas
While most spiders are beneficial – and many are harmless – there are certain species of arachnid you don’t want taking up residence in your living spaces. No one likes to see an eight-legged “friend” climbing up the wall or surprising you in the shower.
There are many types of spiders in Las Vegas, but only a few are truly dangerous. Keep an eye out for evidence of spider infestations around your home and call Flatliners Pest Control. We’ll send out our best spider exterminators to get rid of them and any other pests hanging out in your home. We are experts in removing the valley’s most dangerous spiders.
- Wolf Spider
- Camel Spider
- Black Widow
- Brown Recluse
- The Wolf Spider
The wolf spider is most easily identified by its size, eye configuration, and brown camouflage coloring. They can span several inches in total and don’t spin webs at all. They are agile and aggressive hunters and rarely bite unless threatened. They do inject venom, like most spiders. The wound from a bite may require medical attention, especially if bitten repeatedly.
The Camel Spider
The camel spider is the only spider on this list that is not venomous, but it does have huge pincers, and their bite is painful for that reason. They are large and tan and have similar coloring to the desert hairy scorpion. In fact, at first glance, they can look like one. They can grow up to six inches and have been known to move as fast as 10 miles per hour!
The Black Widow
The black widow spider, one of the more venomous on the list, is easily identified by its black color and red hourglass marking on a round-shaped abdomen. A bite from a black widow is not usually fatal, but it can cause severe reactions in some people and requires medical attention. Their webs tend to look very chaotic and disorganized, with multiple layers for trapping insects.
Call our pros for black widow spider removal in Las Vegas. They are not a spider to try and remove yourself.
The Brown Recluse
The most dangerous spider on our list, by far, is the brown recluse. This relatively small spider has a fairly small body, with long, thin legs. It’s brown in color with a violin-shape on its abdomen. The brown recluse has very potent venom, and its bites can cause serious injury, including necrotic flesh.
If you suspect you have the brown recluse around your home, call right away.
