Spiders are terrifying little pests. There is no doubt about it. These sometimes large arachnids like to invade homes here in Honolulu and cause serious problems for locals. They are also fairly difficult to control if you don’t know what you are doing.

We are here today to provide you with some information to identify and deal with the spiders inside your Honolulu home. Call our team at Able Pest Management if you are looking for a professional option to deal with these or other local pests. We will offer some quick and effective spider removal services and help you find permanent freedom from these invasive arachnids. 

Characteristics Of Common Spiders

Two main types of spiders live around the world: ground spiders and web spiders. Web spiders use intricate webs to catch their prey and typically have smooth bodies, bulbous abdomens, and long, thin legs. Ground spiders look a bit different. Many species are hairy and have thick legs and wide bodies. They are usually flat. This helps them to keep a low profile while hunting for prey on the ground.

Common web spiders in Honolulu include house spiders and yellow garden spiders. The most common ground spider is the huntsman spider. If you would like to know what types of these pests are inside your home, you are in luck. We offer fast and thorough inspection services at Able Pest Management to help you understand your risk. 

Spiders In The Home Can Be Problematic

Finding a spider inside your home does not mean your health is at risk. Most common spiders in Honolulu pose little to no threat to humans. This does not mean, however, that there are no dangerous species in our area. Some spiders have potent venom that leads to serious symptoms. Although not lethal, some bites might require hospitalization.

In fact, if you suspect you were bitten by a dangerous spider, we recommend that you seek out medical attention to reduce pain and avoid potentially lasting symptoms. Otherwise, do your best to implement prevention strategies to keep these pests out of your home. Here are five of the easiest methods to stop spiders from getting into your home.
