Main spiders in Greater Phoenix include Wolf Spiders & Black Widow Spiders. We have other spiders too, but these are the most common. Wolf spiders are big, hairy and scary but not a medical threat. However, Black Widow spider bites are 15x’s MORE venomous than a Rattlesnake, and that makes them a real pest threat!

Spiders in Greater Phoenix AZ
For continuous control of spiders, we recommend using a monthly or bi-monthly pest control services. We have several different types of spiders in the Phoenix AZ Valley including:
Although most people are alarmed when they find a Tarantula inside, they’re just a nuisance pest, not a pest control target. Tarantula bites are no more dangerous than other wolf spider bites, or bee stings. If you find one in the house, the best thing to do is capture and release it outside! Tarantulas are a spider that you see for a SHORT time each year, they are not a regular Phoenix Pest Control target. Sometimes male Tarantulas, who are out looking for a mate, fall into swimming pools and drown.
In the Southwest there are several species of black widows, and they are all venomous. Actually, Black widow venom is a full 15 times more toxic than that of a rattlesnake. Usually female black widows are black with a reddish hourglass mark on their under belly. BUT, adult males are not venomous. Males are also are smaller than females. Black Widows are actually the most venomous spider in the U.S., but victims don’t normally die from a bites because they inject very small amounts of venom. Female Black Widows spend the majority their time hanging upside down in their large webs. They lay up to 750 eggs throughout the summer. And they produce up to to 9 egg sacs in just one summer.
We don’t have the true Brown Recluse spider in the Greater Phoenix Arizona Valley. We actually have a close relative of the Brown Recluse spider, known by two names: The Sonoran Brown Spider & The Mojave Brown Spider.
As SCARY as these HUGE spiders look, Wolf spiders will run away when they’re disturbed. These spiders aren’t a medical threat, BUT bites can cause reactions in some people similar to a bee sting.
Despite their intimidating look and size, Western Spotted Orb Weaver spiders pose no medical threat to residents. They are actually a beneficial spider as they prey on other insects;) – (Carl A. Olson, Associate Curator, 1140 E. South Campus Dr. Dept. of Entomology University of Arizona)
Jumping spiders in Greater Phoenix AZ valley areas are common, but they usually go unnoticed because they’re very small. Jumping spiders come in about 300 different species throughout the United States and Canada. They’re NOT threatening spiders; and of no medical threat or importance. However, up closed they look amazing!
Camel Spiders do not usually bite people, and are not a medical threat. As scary as they really look, Camel 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.
Let’s cut to the chase, these prickly green spiders don’t usually bite humans, and do NOT spin webs either! So you can relax a little… They jump a distance to pounce, like a cat, on other insects. The name “Lynx” comes from the way these spiders pounce like a cat on their prey!
The only Spiders with serious medical concern in Greater Phoenix areas are Black Widows & Brown Recluse.
When the weather cools during fall and winter months, Wolf spiders come in looking for a warm place. They are often seen: running along walls, corners, by doors, windows, house plants, and in garages. As big and scary as they are, Wolf spiders run away when disturbed.
Although the “squish it” method is fatal to all spiders, it can be too much for many people. You can also help prevent spiders from coming in your home by sealing up points of entry. Spiders can get through VERY small holes, so calking around windows and doors is a must. You may also need to replace or add a door sweep because this is an area where there is usually holes for insect entry.
Our professional products are very effective against all spiders including Wolf Spiders and Black Widows. The BEST way to kill spiders is to use a regular pest control program that does all the dirty work for you, and prevents spider problems in the future.
