Spiders Found In Lake Worth
June 28, 2018
There are many spider threats in the Lake Worth area. Spiders serve an important ecological purpose in nature, but can become a threat when allowed in human settlements. Spiders living in your home and on your property can cause many problems, ranging from a mere annoyance to presenting serious and dangerous health risks. In the best case scenario, they are just a nuisance pest, building webs to catch the other invading insects that may have drawn them to your home; however, in the worst case scenario, venomous spiders can and will bite, and those bites can be deadly!
There are several species of invasive spiders in Florida, including daddy long-legs, house spiders, spiny orb weavers, and wolf spiders. These spiders are not dangerous in the sense that they bite or inflict harm on humans; the problem with these types of spiders is that their webs and nests attract other pests. Finding these pests inside your home is also an indication that your home has unsealed areas that are allowing pests in, including spiders. Let’s face it, spiders are just plain creepy. Who really wants them in their home?
The more concerning issue in the Lake Worth area is the spiders that bite and inflict pain on their human victims. Banana spiders do not come indoors often, but can be found on South Florida properties; while not poisonous, their bite can be very painful. Southern black widow spider bites pack a powerful punch. Their venom can be toxic to humans; if bitten, medical attention should be sought immediately. Another dangerous spider that people should watch out for is the brown recluse. While this species is not native to the South Florida area, the constant stream of tourists to this area can bring these harmful spiders with them. The bite of a brown recluse is very painful and can cause a negative reaction in humans. Again, this type of bite should be evaluated and treated by a medical professional.
