Spiders are not insects, they are arachnids (along with ticks and scorpions). Unlike insects that have three body segments, spiders only have two. Spiders don’t have antennae or wings, but they have eight legs. Common spiders in Texas include American house spiders, wolf spiders, brown recluse spiders, black widow spiders, and jumping spiders. Spiders will spin webs in eaves, corners of rooms, and other bug prone areas. Attics, basements, and crawl spaces are also common places to find spiders.
However, some spiders are venomous. Brown recluse spider bites result in small blisters and swelling around the bite and may result in restlessness, fever, and difficulty sleeping. Black Widow Spiders have venom strong enough to compromise the nervous system of a person that has been bitten. Symptoms include vomiting, difficulty breathing, fever, and stomach cramps. Medical attention should be sought for help if a bite occurs.
