Spiders find their way inside a property through points of entry like small cracks and openings around doors, windows, and your building’s foundation. Spiders feed on insects, so if they are attracted to your property, it may be a sign that you have an existing bug problem that they wish to take advantage of.
Spiders like to sneak and stay out of sight, so you may not immediately notice them. Often, the first signs of their presence are finding cobwebs in the corners of windows and rooms or underneath furniture. Spiders use these webs both as a place to rest and as a method of trapping insects to eat. When a bug comes into contact with a web, they cause vibrations that spiders can detect, which signal them to return to the web to feast on the capture. This is why you see an increased number of webs in areas that are infested with small bugs.
The Most Common Spiders Found in Florida
As mentioned earlier, our weather conditions allow spiders to thrive. Spiders are predatory pests and hunt relentlessly for other bugs for their meal. This makes them beneficial to the environment by regulating populations of pests like mosquitoes, gnats, and midges. Most of the time, spiders unintentionally come indoors during their scavenging. If the conditions are right, they may stick around and build a habitat in dark, secluded corners.
Some of the more common spiders that invade the properties of our clients include:
- Jumping spiders: This small spider species may not look like much of a threat, but their ability to jump can be frightening. Because they pounce on their prey, they are not known for spinning webs to capture bugs.
- House spiders: As their name suggests, house spiders have an affinity for living inside homes and are known for making webs in corners and around ceilings.
- Crab spiders: This bright yellow spider gets its name from having a crab-shaped body. They typically stay around garden areas and bushes.
- Wolf spiders: This hairy, brown-colored spider is often mistaken for a tarantula because of their larger size. They are skilled hunters that like to track down prey, which can often bring them indoors during their search.
- Black widow spiders: This venomous spider has a trademark shiny black color with a red marking on the underside of its abdomen that is shaped like an hourglass.
- Brown recluse spiders: This spider is known for getting into clothing, where they can bite unsuspecting victims.

Getting the spider population under control is vital, especially if you are worried that the spider species invading your home is aggressive. The average female house spider is known for rapidly reproducing at a rate of 250 eggs per sac. When accounting for the fact that they can make up to 17 sacs in their life span, that can mean a massive new generation of spiders waiting to hatch.
