Michigan Spiders

Spiders are something many people are afraid of, or they dislike, but despite this fact, they are a great benefit for getting rid of other insects. There are many spider species in Michigan, but most of them are harmless to humans. Still, there is a handful of spiders that can harm you. There are two such dangerous spiders found in Michigan: the brown recluse and the black widow. The brown recluse can’t live in temperatures colder than 40°F, so they are extremely rare in the state.

They are easily found in homes, and tend to hide behind woodpiles, under furniture, inside crevices, and even under, around, inside storage boxes. These spiders are not seen running around during the daytime, mainly the spiders that are seen running around during the day are harmless to humans.

Michigan Spiders - Identification

Many people confuse spiders with other small insects.  Spiders are not technically insects; they are arachnids. Spiders have eight legs, and two body parts; one of which is his head, and the second is his/ her abdomen. Spiders do not have wings or antennae on their body as some insects do. Spiders are known to eat other spiders and insects. Also, commonly found on plants, and spiders use venom to poison their prey.

Michigan Spiders - Prevention

To control spiders, you need to reduce the areas they can hide in or build webs on/around. So the first step you want to take is cleaning to reduce areas of hiding. Start with any areas of storage. If possible, remove old boxes, miscellaneous items on storage shelves, old furniture not being used, Vacuuming or using a dust ruffle in the rafters of your basement, corners of closets, window frames, and under furniture will also help. Once you have thoroughly cleaned the inside the home, you can begin to see if you have a current infestation by any new webbing created.
