Spiders

Spider overview

Although spiders in Arkansas are often considered insects, they are arachnids. They have eight legs, no wings or antennae and feed on insects.

The American house spider is a nuisance spider that infests homes and businesses in Arkansas. An adult female house spider can measure up to 8 mm in length while an adult male only measures 4 mm. Both are typically brown or gray in color with darker markings along their bodies.

There are also dangerous spiders including black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders.  Black widows are shiny black spiders with fat abdomens and the easily recognizable by a red, hour-glass shaped mark on the underside.  Female black widows are larger than males, measuring up to 1 1/2".   Brown recluse spiders are larger in size with both genders of the species measuring approximately 1/2 inch in length. They are yellow-tan in color with long legs and a fiddle-shaped pattern close to the eyes. Visit our brown recluse spider identification page to learn more about this dangerous spider.

My technician was wonderful! I would definitely recommend your company to others. It is a breath of fresh air today not to feel used and abused when dealing with most businesses as a customer. All of the staff with whom I spoke displayed the best attitude and "human" approach. Please don't change.
