Habits And Behaviors Of Common Spiders

While the most common spiders you'll find in your Roseville home are harmless to people, these critters can still bite and overstay their welcome. The most common spiders in Roseville include: 

  • Green lynx spiders: With females growing larger than males, green lynx spiders have green coloring and black spines, and prefer to keep to themselves.
  • Fishing spiders: As their name suggests, fishing spiders aren't afraid to take a dive in the water to hunt for prey. While they often stick to areas with abundant water, they can occasionally end up in homes by accident, especially if you've got a pool or pond. Their large size at three inches can be frightening, but their venom is not toxic to humans.
  • Wolf spiders: Growing up to over an inch in length, wolf spiders have thick, hairy bodies and prefer to hunt their prey on foot like the predator they're named after.
  • Crab spiders: Crab spiders get their name from the way they spread out like crabs, and their coloring can vary from pale green to yellow.
  • Brown recluse spiders: Brown recluse spiders are one of the few species that are dangerous to humans in California, and you can usually recognize them by looking for the violin-shaped mark on their cephalothorax.
  • Black widow spiders: With black bodies and red or orange hourglass markings on the underside of their abdomens, black widows pack a dangerous bite but are rarely aggressive.

Five Easy And Effective Spider Prevention Tips

While spiders may not ask your permission before they make your home into their own, there are some steps you can take to prevent spiders in Roseville, such as: 

  1. Keep all trash containing food scraps in durable garbage receptacles to avoid attracting various insects that spiders prey on to your property.
  2. If you use exterior lights near entryways, consider installing yellow or sodium vapor bulbs that are less attractive to insects.
  3. Fill any cracks near the foundation that might allow entry with caulk or sealant.
  4. Promptly repair damaged window and door screens.
  5. Carefully remove webs and egg sacs to discourage spiders from staying.

Along with these tips above, the best way to prevent spiders is by working with the pros. While most of the spiders that enter your home will be harmless, you may occasionally deal with a dangerous spider – or even a full-blown infestation.

What It Means If You're Seeing Spiders In Your Home

When it comes to getting into your house, spiders can be creative about their entrances – anything from open doorways and tears in window screens to cracks in your foundation can serve as an entrance for spiders. 

In some cases, you may bring the occasional spider in on your own – firewood and yard debris make excellent hiding spots for spiders, and bringing these items inside could also mean bringing a spider inside. 

As for why they get inside, spiders aren't interested in human food or warm shelter like most pests are. Typically, spiders get inside Roseville homes because they're following pest prey, like flies, ants, or other insects they want to eat. Homes that have spider infestations or problems generally have other pest problems as well. 

Do wolf spiders climb into beds? Encountering a spider is already unsettling enough, but nobody likes the thought of a spider crawling onto their bed while they sleep – but do these arachnids really favor sleeping areas? 

As it turns out, spiders, including wolf spiders, don't care about crawling into beds any more than they care about any other part of your home. Most spiders prefer to stick to areas where they won't be disturbed by humans, like storage areas, dark corners, or other spots without a lot of human traffic. 

However, spiders can still crawl into beds, but it's usually only because they're on the way to a potential food source. If you've got an existing pest problem in your bedroom or around your bed, spiders may spend more time in there because that's where their food source is.
