Our state is home to many spider species, both poisonous and non-poisonous. And unfortunately, some of these spiders are notorious for making their way indoors and setting up camp inside of homes and businesses.

And most people would agree that spiders make their skin crawl. So today on the blog, Ameri Care shares how to get help dealing with spiders in Murfreesboro.
Common spiders found in Middle Tennessee
Some homeowners don’t care too much about identifying different spider types. They just want them dead or to be kept outside. But some of the most common spider species in Nashville include the cellar spiders, wolf spiders, orb weaver spiders, American house spiders, zipper spiders, and jumping spiders, which are all non-poisonous. Now, that doesn’t mean that if bitten by one of these spiders you won’t have a reaction, it just means that the reaction, if any, should not be severe. However, poisonous spiders in Nashville the brown recluse and black widow could result in a severe reaction that requires medical attention. It’s easy to confuse wolf spiders with brown recluses, and there are several other black spiders that resemble the infamous black widow, but that are actually quite harmless.
What should you do if you see spiders in your home?
It’s not uncommon to discover a spider or two inside your home. But if you start seeing a lot of spiders are see new ones every few days, you could be dealing with a different kind of pest infestation because spiders like to hang out where they can find plenty of food. Spiders will eat flies, ants, mosquitos, moths, and sometimes other spiders. Therefore, if you find what seems like a lot of spiders inside, it’s time to call a professional pest control technician for help. Also, we recommend that you call a pest professional if you believe that you have a black widow or brown recluse in your home. Do not kill it as you could burst an egg sack, which sends tiny baby spiders crawling all over the place. Instead, have a pest technician properly remove the spider and ensure that no eggs are left behind.
