Affordable effective spider control for your home.
There are 39 common spiders found in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and more than 3,700 species of spiders in North America. Spiders play an important role in nature, keeping other insect populations in check. In fact, an exterior spider infestation around your home is an indication of a larger insect population infesting the area.
Spider Feeding Habits
Most spiders are predators, using poison venom to paralyze and eventually kill their prey. Active hunters may have cracks & crevices they return to on a regular basis, but these spiders are extremely mobile as they search for prey. Passive hunters, on the other hand, sit and wait for the prey to come to them – these are the large web spiders.
Active Hunters: Wolf spiders, Ground spiders, Jumping spiders
Passive Hunters: Common house Spider, Crab spider, Recluse spider, Black widow Spider, Orb-weaver, Cobweb weavers, Cellar spider.
