Here we have an example of a wolf spider. These are typically pretty fast runners. Right now he is affected by an insecticide. They'll set up camp inside the weep holes; that's the gap between the bricks that is established by the builder to let moisture out of your wall. You can see his fine, little threads of web in there. Problem is, often times they lay their eggs and their baby spiders inside the walls and then you see them inside your house.
The Brown Recluse Spider is one of the most feared spiders in all of North America; and with good reason. The spider is dangerous. Bites from the Brown Recluse spider can be quite painful, with the venom killing the living tissue near the bite site. Although rare, bites from this venomous spider can cause death. Because of these severe reactions to the spider's venom, there is much awareness out there about this particular spider... Some of which is false. In fact, the Brown Recluse spider is often misidentified, with many homeowners believing that any brown spider is indeed a Brown Recluse. So how do you know if a spider you find in your house is indeed a Brown Recluse? Where in the country are they prominently found? And a question I hope nobody ever has to answer, what do you do if I'm bit by a Brown Recluse spider?

Many of us cower in fear at the thought of a spider. If there is even an inkling that the spider might be dangerous, we run screaming in the other direction looking for the nearest broom to take the spider out. There are many feelings out there about spiders; some are misconceptions. This got me thinking... Why are people so afraid of spiders? Here are 10 reasons:
Spiders have two major weapons at their disposal, their fangs. If a spider so chooses it can literally sink its teeth into you. Many people keep spiders as pets. Tarantulas, who can have fangs as long as 2.5 inches, are a common household pet. The tarantula’s bite isn't any more poisonous than that of a bee sting, but still is very painful. When a tarantula is getting ready to bite, it lifts its four front legs. Those fangs in combination with that threatening stance are definitely intimidating and grab at a person’s sense of fear.
Many people fear spiders because of their poison. In reality there are very few spiders with venom lethal enough to kill humans. The two most poisonous spiders to humans are the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow. Even the poison of these two spiders would have a hard time killing an adult. Mainly young children and elderly people are susceptible to more serious consequences from these bites; otherwise, bites from these dangerous spiders can easily be medically treated.
Yes, spiders are gross to even look at. All species of spiders look different, but we can definitely agree that they are all ugly. Some have thick legs, while some have thinner legs. They can be hairy or bald. Their buggy little faces give most of us the heebie-jeebies! So how can you get close enough to kill something if you can’t even stand to look at it?! Just, time haunting questions of the universe, I guess.
Spiders can move swiftly and quickly to avoid the sandal’s smash. From there, they hide in places people can’t reach or even see. The trick is to spot it and out sneak it. However, spotting a spider when you’re asleep is difficult. This can give us nightmares, and an unrelaxing night’s sleep. This paranoia is a huge factor to a person’s sense of fear. The fear is that this tiny creature is smarter and sneakier, and this can really perturb some people.
Most people see spiders as predators, and while a spider is a hunter, it definitely does not spend its off-time sniffing out humans. While there are some jumping spiders in existence, they’re definitely not harmful to people. These jumping spiders live mainly in tropical environments. Most spiders among people are not aggressive at all. The two most harmful spiders, the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow, are non-aggressive and in reality are very shy. They cannot jump and will definitely not hunt out people.
Spiders also have angular shaped legs that we as humans are wired to fear. Their legs and also their dark color are a spider’s natural defenses. Their unpredictability and visible difference causes human fear.
Spiders are so different and vary dramatically. This unpredictability raises the fear in all of us. Some spiders can be extremely large. The Goliath Bird-eating Spider is the largest spider in the world. Its leg span is about 12 inches, which is about the size of a dinner plate. Along with the massiveness of this giant, spiders can also be extremely small. Spiderlings can be really small, even microscopic, yet they look exactly like a full grown spider, leaving the human mind to wonder just what a spider’s size can really be.
Spiders seem to produce spiderlings endlessly. Many spiders can produce hundreds of eggs at a time. The creation of these new spiders can be as quick as a few weeks. After those baby spiders hatch, the mother spider is back at it again, creating more weapons of mass destruction.
We've all had those nightmares, getting stuck in a giant web and getting our flesh sucked away by a nasty spider. While it is true that many spiders can produce silk webs, only about half of the species of spiders in the world can produce silk. All other spiders use different tactics to catch their prey. Regardless of the tactic, no spider technique is threatening enough to people. While a web may be nasty and scary, it is definitely not strong or sophisticated enough to ensnare us… well, maybe just ensnare our fear.
All things spider are scary, but in the end, their bite is definitely the scariest thing about them. While not many of these bites are lethal, they are painful. Some of the world’s largest spiders can pack unfortunate punches. Most household spider bites will cause an itch at most, but you can’t help compare those little critters to their powerful cousins found all over the world.

So how do all those little spiders get inside your home? The ones that kind of run along, jump along the grass, they hunt organisms like these pincher bugs and other insects down-deep right along the foundation where the grass meets the foundation. What happens though is that these running hunting spiders will set up camp inside what we call the weep hole. That's a gap between the bricks that allows moist air to escape your wall; that moist air draws insects in. They'll set up camp and nest back there and unfortunately when they lay their eggs their eggs are inside your wall two to six hundred babies will then hatch inside the wall and you'll start seeing little tiny spiders running around the corners of your home. You also see little cobwebs set up in the corners. This is where it comes from. Bulwark Exterminating is the #1 pest control option for keeping pests out of your home.
Garages are notorious places for cobwebs and spiders. This area has been treated, but there are quite a few egg sacs. Let me see if I can pull a few out for ya. Typical house spider egg sac has anywhere from four hundred to eight hundred baby eggs in it because these little white markings eventually within a year those egg sacs will hatch and even though the garages been sprayed it'll reinfest. If this was in your wall or up around the siding on the exterior of your house around your windows sill those baby eggs would be all over inside your home.
Anytime you live next to an open field, a golf course or a lake you get a lot of little spiders ballooning over to your house they spin a little web in the wind when their babies and the wind picks up that web and carries it to the high tree or to your house where they'll attach to your house and start to thrive. Eventually they grow up in a way and this is what we have here we have five egg sacs each containing about two hundred ends so while the problem did not originate here they got here and now they're laying eggs directly on your wall, problem is that these egg sacs, hatch they're gonna find a way in this window from small cracks or crevices and pressure inside your home.
