Different types of garden spidersspecies build their homes in different parts of the United States, but there are some species in many different parts of the country. In addition to spiders, in order to catalog some of the most common arachnids (including ticks and mites), the Plant Pest Diagnostic Laboratory at Utah State University compiled a list of the top 20. The three top spiders areHobo spider, the black widow, and wolf spiders.
1. Hobo spider
One of the three venomous types of garden spiders in the United States, the hobo or funnel web. Spiders are most commonly found in the Pacific Northwest. A large body about 1/2 inch can be most easily identified by its short-haired legs without dark bands. This spider can form a funnel-shaped web and move very fast. Although it is usually not aggressive, it can attack or bite if it feels threatened. Although there may be some evidence that the bite of a wandering disease spider may cause necrotic damage to the human body, this is still uncertain. To control these spiders and prevent them from entering your home, leave wood, debris, and plants outside, and make sure all doors and windows are well sealed. In addition, you'd better block gaps around gaps and ducts, cables, and other perforations that pass through the walls of external houses. If you find hobo spiders in your home, you can suck them up or place a glue collector near the web page. To protect yourself, you’d better wear gloves and protective clothing in potentially infested areas.
2. Black Widow
The black widow, also known as the cobweb spider, is one of the most dangerous types of garden spiders in the United States, because its bite can be fatal to those most vulnerable to infection, especially young children and the elderly. Because these spiders spend most of their time on the web, when people accidentally touch the web, such as when cleaning a garage or garden, people are likely to be bitten. The females of this species are about 1/2 inch long and are usually marked by a red hourglass on their underside. However, this mark is sometimes more yellow and not always easy to identify. The black widow is not aggressive towards humans, but will bite people defensively. The difference in its bite is that there are two thorn marks on its teeth. Since black widow bites can be very dangerous, it is important to seek medical care if you think you have been bitten.
The wolf spiders are so named because, like wolves, they are hunters. They hunt down and ambush prey, and will culled and capture them. There are about 125 tarantula species in the United States, and most regions have at least one species. Although the bite of a tarantula is generally considered very dangerous, its bite is actually not fatal. The wolf can be quite large, with the body extending to 2 inches. Although it has eight legs, like all spiders, it looks like it has 10 legs because their two small attachments protrude from the front. This spider does not hide on the web, but is usually on the ground in the open, or it may be harboured under leaf litter or your garden. In order to control the tarantula, it is necessary to directly contact the insecticide marked with the spider mark, or it can be caught on a rubber sheet. You can also eliminate the cracks and gaps around the exterior wall of the house from your home.
