What are spiders?
Some of the most common species of spiders found living throughout our area of Greater Baltimore include the following:
American house spiders
American house spiders have bodies that are typically yellowish-brown with dirty white underbellies. They also have distinctive dark markings on their bodies and legs. These are the most common species of spider found living inside of our homes in Central Maryland.
Black widow spiders
Black widow spiders are shiny and black in color with a red hourglass-shaped pattern on their backs; they may also have lighter red or white spots on their abdomens and backs. Black widow spiders possess a powerful venom that attacks the nervous system and is strong enough to cause health problems in people. As is the case with brown recluse spiders, however, bites are rare and usually accidental.
Brown recluse spiders
Brown recluse spiders come in various shades of brown and are primarily identified by three pairs of eyes that are arranged in a distinct semi-circle pattern, and the violin-shaped pattern found on the top of their bodies. Although they have venom that is strong enough to cause severe health problems in people, brown recluse spiders are not aggressive and bites are rare.
Jumping spiders can be black, brown, gray, or tan in color, with pale or white markings on their bodies and legs. They have eight short, powerful legs that allow them to jump a distance up to 25 times their own height. Jumping spiders are excellent hunters and tend to be most active on bright, sunny days.
Wolf spiders are a large species of spiders with robust bodies and powerful legs that are covered in hair. Wolf spiders are dark brown with pale, yellowish markings. These spiders do not build webs; instead, they run after and chase down their prey.
