The Types Of Spiders You May Find In Your New Haven County Business

The most common types of spiders you are likely to come across in your business are the common house spider and the wolf spider. These spiders are more of a nuisance than a danger. 

However, black widows and brown recluse spiders live in New Haven County, and they have the potential to pose a health threat. Because of the possible risk of coming into contact with these dangerous spiders, learning to identify the different spiders can be a benefit. Here's a guide to the different species in the area:

  • Common house spider: These spiders are typically yellowish-brown with dark angled markings and are about 3/16 to 5/16 inches long.
  • Wolf spider: They have hairy bodies and are 3/8 to 1 and 3/8 inches long. Wolf spiders are dark brown with light markings or stripes.
  • Black widow spider: The female is black with the signature red hourglass shape on her abdomen and is approximately 1 ½ inches long. Males have a small group of red dots on their backs instead of the hourglass and are about half the size of the females.
  • Brown recluse spider: These light to dark brown spiders have a violin-shaped marking on their backs. Their bodies are ¼ to ½ inch in length with long thin legs.

If you come across a black widow or brown recluse spider, it's best to call in the professionals. These spiders have potent venom, so professional pest services provide protection. 

What It Means If You're Seeing Spiders Inside Your Business

Suppose you are experiencing a spider problem in your business. In that case, it usually means two things. There's plenty of food available that's attracting them, and two, they have ways to enter your property. Insects and other spiders are the primary food sources for spiders. By controlling the bug population in and around your business, you will, in turn, make your property less attractive to spiders. 

Easy & Effective Spider Prevention Tips For Commercial Space

Spider prevention essentially eliminates the two reasons why spiders enter your home. The difficulty of achieving that goal will depend on the size and type of your business. Some prevention tips can fit into your business routine and help spiders. Here is where you can start:

  • Use eco-friendly baits and baits that are helpful in spider and insect prevention.
  • Turn off unnecessary outside lights when not in use.
  • Try cleaning solutions containing vinegar or citrus products to help deter spiders.
  • Keep all windows and doors closed tightly.
  • Clean food pantries, countertops, and floors to keep them free of spills and crumbs.

These suggested tips are beneficial in preventing all types of insects, including spiders. But they are not a guarantee that your business will be completely spider-free.
