Unlike other fall invaders, spiders don't attack homes to escape the winter, and most of the spiders you see now will likely be in your home before the temperature drops. In the spring and summer, most spiders are young and younger and would rather hide in the cracks of your walls than venture into a predator that could harm them.
With the onset of fall, all the spiders that have been living in your home will grow much larger and start looking for mates in the common areas of your home. You can visit www.planetapestmanagement.com.au/pest-control/spiders to get spider pest control.

Some common spiders to look out for during the fall are the various types of house spiders, brown recluse spiders, and black widow spiders.
House spiders come in a variety of sizes, and their colors usually include black, brown, and yellow. Although the bite of a house spider can cause mild skin irritation, the bite is not harmful to humans.
This black widow is widely known for her distinctive red hourglass shape on her belly. However, it is important to see a doctor immediately if you suspect that you have been bitten by a black widow spider to make sure there is not a severe allergic reaction to the venom.
The brown recluse spider is another species of spider known to be dangerous to humans. Unlike black widow venom, the venom of the brown recluse spider attacks tissue cells instead of the nervous system, which can result in severe scarring and damage to the bite site.
