You may have heard that spiders are useful, eating bugs, such as mosquitos, that may harm us. While that may be the case, you still don’t want these pests in your home or business. Not only are they unpleasant to see creeping around indoors, but many types of poisonous spiders also call Illinois home.
According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, 3500 species of spiders are found in the United States, and they are usually classified in two categories: those that make webs and those that hunt. The presence of a spider web is a strong clue that there may be an infestation, and most web-hanging spiders tend to stay near their web. Getting rid of these types of spiders is often easy; you may be able to evict unwanted web-hangers by using a vacuum to get rid of each web and any visible spiders.
Hunting spiders, however, are more stealthy, difficult to detect and trickier to eradicate. One type of hunting spider in Illinois is the infamous brown recluse. They like to nest in dark, hidden areas, such as inside boxes, furniture or voids in a wall. What makes a brown recluse infestation difficult to eradicate is the fact that females only have to mate once to be able to produce offspring during their entire lifetime.
