They typically move inside searching for food, mates, and warmth. Spiders often come into a home if they are sensing other prey. They could also be accidentally brought in on household plants. Most spiders are not threatening to people, however some do hold venomous bites that can lead to many medical issues. The two most venomous spiders in the United States are the brown recluse which is distinguished by the violin shaped marking. The second is the black widow, noticeable by the red hourglass shape on the underside of the jet-black-belly.

The spiders that enjoy moisture are typically found in the basement, crawl space and other damp parts of the home. The spiders that like the warmth will get cozy in subfloor air vents, upper corners of rooms, and even your attic.

There have been thousands of spider species identified. Spiders have eight legs, two body segments as well as three or four pairs of eyes. Even with all those eyes a majority of spiders have bad vision. With the exception of the jumping spider which has exceptional vision.

Since spiders lack chewing mouthparts they utilize their saliva to break down prey before eating.
