Arkansas is home to some of the more dangerous spiders such as the black widow and the brown recluse. And although these spiders are not aggressive by nature, their bites can cause serious reactions including skin infections which may require immediate medical attention. Spiders will generally only bite when they feel threatened or if they are disturbed.

Summertime means more energy to tackle those home projects both in and outside. But if you are planning to do some organizing in the shed, garage, attic or other desolate spaces of the home, be on the lookout for spiders! Because most spiders prefer to be in hidden areas where they can spin their web and find food, it is the storage spaces that are most likely to be hosting a creepy crawly or two. And unfortunately in Arkansas, some of the commonly found spiders are not just a scary sight but also dangerous.
