Sun Spiders: A Common Phoenix Pest
Scary LOOKING but usually harmless, and VERY common in the Phoenix AZ Valley from March – October.
Although they’re usually harmless, these spiders CAN bite. All spiders are venomous, and reactions depend on the victims response to the spiders venom. Just like with Bee stings, those who are allergic will have a more severe reaction.
- As scary as they look, these spiders are actually good for our environment! If you find one INSIDE, the best thing to do is to move it outside so they can eat other bugs! If you can’t do that, you can vacuum them up.
- To control these bugs OUTSIDE remove harboring habitats around your home and 30 feet out into your yard. Eliminate debris, woodpiles, rock piles, and any other object that would give shelter from the sun.
- Trim all landscaping AWAY from the house, so that no bushes or trees touch the home.
- Replace exterior light bulbs with YELLOW BULBS as they DO NOT attract bugs that these spiders PREY ON.
- The Best Exterminator on Earth will suggest ways to seal Your home against pests with EXCLUSION.
Solpugids are commonly referred to as Sun Spiders, Camel Spiders because of their spider/camel look, and Wind-Scorpion because they run super fast and can cover several feet in just a few seconds!
- Mature adults get up to 1 and 3/4 inches long.
- They are a tan color, with a bit darker abdomen.
- These spiders are active hunting at night.
- They eat lots of different bugs from Termites to other spiders!
- Camel Spiders pose no medical threat.
