Spiders seek out the warmth of your home during the winters here in the Valley. Many spiders are harmless. The cellar spider—commonly known as the “Daddy Long-Legs Spider” in the United States—is an example of a spider that poses no threat to humans, but is a predator to other insects. Unless you’re an arachnophobe, we recommend leaving them be.
The same is not true for two other species: the black widow and the brown recluse, both found here in Arizona. These spiders love to make their winter homes in Gilbert garages, attics, and other secluded spaces. As venomous species, both can pose a threat to you and your family.
If you spot either the black widow—one of the most recognizable spiders in the world—or the brown recluse, reach out to Arizona Wild, Our technicians have the experience necessary to handle all species of spiders in the area as well as their pest prey.
