What Are Spiders?

Many people believe spiders are insects. But, they are wrong.

Spiders that are air-breathing arthropods typically characterized by an external skeleton, simple eyes, eight legs, a segmented body and fangs that inject venom. They use this venom while hunting or when in danger. With around 40,000 known species, they are very diverse in terms of size and color. They weave silk webs that are elastic in nature and waterproof. A spider can live up to 2 years.

Contrary to the popular belief, not every spider is dangerous. Only about 2% are potentially harmful, the rest don’t actually pose a threat to humans and only attack in self-defense, when proved. A bite by a poisonous spider can cause pain, swelling, itching, nausea, and in severe cases, system failure resulting in death. The black widow and brown recluse contain powerful venom, enough to kill a human.

Spider Identification

This spider identification guide will help you identify the spider you have found. First, we’ll look at the two kinds of spiders in North America that are potentially dangerous to humans—widow and recluse spiders. In addition, this guide will help you identify other species commonly found in basements, garages, and gardens throughout the world.

Often the first thing people do when they find a spider is to start looking for a way to kill it. That’s too bad, since spiders catch and eat all kinds of pest insects, especially mosquitoes, flies, and roaches.

Your house is better off with a few spiders around, and in any case you’ll never kill all of them. If you did somehow wipe out all the spiders, you would soon notice swarms of houseflies, fruit flies, mosquitoes, gnats, clothes moths, and assorted other pests flying around your house.

Different type of Spider

  • Common House Spider.
  • Cellar Spiders.
  • Harvestmen.
  • Jumping Spiders.
  • Funnel Weavers.
  • Wolf Spiders.
  • Types of Spiders With Poisonous Bites
  • Sac Spiders.
  • Brown Spiders.
  • Widow Spiders.

Common House Spider

Achaearanea tepidariorum, also known as the common house spider, is just what the name implies: incredibly common. Also known as the American house spider or the domestic spider, these arachnids are the most regularly seen spiders in all of North America, with sightings ranging from Southern Canada throughout the United States.

If you have noticed dirty cobwebs in the corners of your walls, they very well could have been left by a common house spider. These dust-covered cobwebs can easily be vacuumed up or swept down without fear of coming in contact with a spider.

Common house spiders choose web locations at random and will readily abandon their web to build one elsewhere if their chosen spot does not result in a meal. When they leave, they ditch their old web, leaving it behind to collect dust.

Cellar Spiders

The two most common cellar spiders are short-bodied cellar spiders and long-bodied cellar spiders. They are found throughout Canada and the United States and tend to build their webs in dark, moist environments such as cellars, warehouses, barns, and garages, where they spend their days eating insects and other spiders.

Many people mistakenly believe that long-bodied cellar spiders have venom that would be lethal to humans if the spiders’ weak mouthparts were capable of biting skin. While it’s very true that long-bodied cellar spiders have no ability to pierce human skin with their jaws, their venom is not potent, making these spiders harmless pest-eaters.


Harvestmen, also known as daddy long-legs, are not technically spiders. They are actually a distant relative of the spider and get an honorable mention because they are frequently confused with the above cellar spider.

When trying to determine if you’re dealing with cellar spiders or harvestmen, look at their body shape. Cellar spiders are a yellow color and have two distinct body parts including a long, skinny abdomen.

Harvestmen have two body segments as well, but they don’t look like it. Their body looks like it has a single, brown or grey oval shaped segment with eight spindly legs protruding from it. Harvestmen are not venomous and are typically found outside in spaces such as wooded areas or gardens.

Jumping Spiders

There are a variety of jumping spider species through the United States and parts of Canada, but they are all part of the family Salticidae. Jumping spiders are hunting spiders that are capable of jumping up to six inches, depending on the species. These spiders commonly wander into homes but can also be carried in on firewood or plants.

Many jumping spiders have red or white markings on their abdomens and can be confused for black widows. Jumping spiders, however, are not dangerous and are actually beneficial, as they enjoy hunting and pouncing on nuisance insects.

Funnel Weavers

Funnel weavers, including the hobo spider, are part of the family Agelenidae and are most noticeable in the fall when their dew covered webs are visible in the morning hours. Not to be confused with the funnel-web spider of Australia (the only spider in the word that is considered actually aggressive), funnel weavers build their webs in a variety of places including windows, doorways, and cellars.

It was long believed that hobo spiders had a dangerous bite. Reactions vary from person to person, but hobo spiders are not considered toxic to humans according to the University of California’s Pest Management Program.

Wolf Spiders

Frequently confused with tarantulas, wolf spider are large, hairy hunting spiders that do not construct webs but instead spend their lives running from place to place seeking out food sources. Part of the family Lycosidae, wolf spiders are found throughout North America north of Mexico. These are primarily outdoor spiders that hunt nocturnally. If you’re seeing one inside, it’s likely looking for dinner.

Common Types of Spiders With Poisonous Bites

Sac Spiders

Part of the family Miturgidae, sac spiders are normally found inside (or outside) homes. They use their silk to construct tent-like coverings in low corners. They hide behind these silky structures during the daytime, resting before their nocturnal hunting starts.

There are not reliable visual distinctions used to identify sac spiders. They vary drastically in coloring and are sometimes confused with other spiders due to shades ranging from yellow to brown to green.

It’s a good idea to keep your distance from these spiders, as their venom contains cytotoxin and has been shown to be poisonous to humans. Use a vacuum or broom to clean them up. Don’t want to do it yourself? Hire a local IPM specialist SOS-Extermination.

Brown Spiders

Brown spiders, also known as fiddle-back or violin spiders, are a part of the Sicariidae family. Some are harmless, but this group of spiders also includes the brown recluse, the most dangerous spider of the Loxosceles species.

Identification of brown spiders can be difficult because they all have very similar markings and colorings. If you suspect the spider you’re seeing is a brown spider, give it space. Luckily, they are not aggressive and are not likely to bite unless pinned against skin.

It is most common for brown recluse bites to happen on the arms, hands, and feet while doing things like dressing or cleaning storage areas. These bites can often go undetected until hours later when the discomfort sets in.

If you are concerned about brown recluse spiders and live in an area where they are known to be present, before getting dressed, shake out any clothing that is left overnight or stays outside (including shoes), make sure you’re not going to lay down on any spiders before climbing in bed, and wear rubber gloves when cleaning out storage spaces or moving firewood.

Brown recluse spiders are found most often in the midwestern and southern United States. These spiders are naturally found outdoors in areas where hiding places are readily available, such as debris piles, bark, raked leaves, between or under stones, and within wood piles.

These spiders are also well adapted to indoor habitats and will venture into storage areas, closets, attics, and other dark hiding spots.

Widow Spiders

Widow spiders are certainly not one of the most common types of house spiders, but they’re at the top of the list when it comes to spider related concerns. If you’re seeing a spider in your home, it is likely not a widow spider, but it’s still a good idea to know what to look for and how to avoid disrupting them.

Widow spiders range in color, as there are both brown and black widows, but both have a distinct reddish-orange hourglass shape on the underside of their abdomen. There are also false widows, which look similar to a black widow but are completely harmless.

Black widows are widely known for the toxins associated with their bite, but keep in mind that black widows are very shy. They generally hide in areas that are not commonly accessed and are not likely to bite, as they are not aggressive and rarely leave their webs.

It is during the period of time after laying eggs and guarding their egg sacs that a black widow is most likely to bite, but only when disturbed. If you need to be reaching into an area where a spider could be hiding, such as a woodpile or rarely touched storage space, wear rubber gloves to protect yourself from possible spider bites.
