Spiders are commonly found in San Antonio. These arthropods frequently invade residential dwellings and create problems for homeowners and renters in our area. They’re frightening since they can bite and inject venom into their victims. Researchers have identified 40,000 unique spider species around the world. Spiders build webs by releasing silk from their bellies. The web is ultimately used to capture prey that will later be killed and consumed. Spiders in our area tend to feed on other spiders and insects. However, some of the largest spider species can kill lizards and birds. Suffice to say, you don’t want to encounter the larger species.
Although some spiders live alone, others do not. They live in communal webs alongside thousands of other spiders. In some cases, they can live with 50,000 other spiders. Depending on their environment, spiders can live a few years up to 25 years. Adult male spiders tend to be slightly smaller than female spiders. Sometimes, the size difference is dramatic. Males are easily identified because they have larger mouthparts which are also referred to as palps. Male spiders are frequently found in residential structures because they enter when searching for female mates.
Unfortunately, spiders pose many dangers to humans and their pets. As you already know, these pests can bite and inject venom into their victims. However, it might not be as bad as you might believe. Ultimately, not all spider bites are dangerous. Research has shown that 99% of all spider bites will prove to be harmless. Therefore, you shouldn’t overreact to the spiders in your home. Still, you shouldn’t ignore them either. In rare cases, spider bites can lead to necrotic wounds and systemic toxicity. In some cases, a bite will be fatal. The primary concern is that you’re going to be injected with venom. It is best to stay away from spiders. If you get bit, you’ll want to pay close attention to your condition and get medical help if necessary.
Causes Of Spiders
Why have spiders decided to invade your home? Ultimately, there is no specific reason. The spiders in your home could be searching for food. Your home likely has plenty of moist, dark spots. Insects thrive there so spiders will come there to eat. In other cases, male spiders have entered your home to look for female spiders to mate with.
