Tips On How To Recognize Local Venomous Spiders
One of the many worrisome pests that Portland locals may have to deal with this spring is local venomous spiders. Of course we don’t recommend trying to remove venomous spiders on your own, but it is useful to be able to identify common venomous spiders that we sometimes get in the area.
The Hobo Spider is one of the venomous spiders that is local to the Portland area. This spider is larger, brown in color, and had darker brown marking on its back. Most spiders have darker joints on their legs. Hobo spiders lack this feature. Hobo spiders can also be identified by their funnel webs. While local to the Pacific Northwest, Hobo spiders are still fairly rare.
Black Widow Spiders
Another type of venomous spider you may see in the Portland area is the Black Widow. Fortunately, black widows are even more rare than Hobo spiders as they tend to prefer the warmer climates local to the south. Still, Black Widows sometimes make their way north through human travel. Black Widow spiders are black in color and have a red hourglass-like shape on their abdomen.
Brown Recluse Spiders
Finally, Portland locals should be able to identify the brown recluse spider. The brown recluse is the spider you’re least likely to see. Like Black Widows, they usually reside in the south – specifically, the southwest. However, they are sometimes seen in Oregon. Most spiders have eight eyes, arranged in pairs of two. Brown recluses have six eyes in three pairs. Just behind the eyes, the Brown Recluse will have a violin-shaped spot.
If you notice any of these spiders in your home, be careful not to get too close. They are venomous and their bites are serious business! For safe and effective spider extermination, call on Wildwoods Pest Control.
