Though there are only about three species of Colorado spiders that are really dangerous to humans, they still pose a threat to your everyday life. And, for people who are afraid of spiders, even the common ones need to be eradicated from the home.
The three dangerous species previously mentioned are: the black widow, the yellow sac, and the hobo spider. To help protect you from them in Colorado, here are some ways you can identify each of them:
As people honor the season with synthetic web displays and plastic spiders, true arachnids begin to make more public appearances. Many of the nation’s spider species are harmless, certain exceptions to the rule could be moving in with you as we speak.
Often mistaken for their potentially deadly doppelganger the Brown Recluse, Yellow Sac Spiders like to weather winter in and around the warmth of human homes. You might find them and their silken hideouts in your firewood cache, under eaves, high up where your walls meet your ceiling and even around picture or window frames. They usually sleep during daylight hours, reserving nighttime for their more active routines.
If the spiders themselves manage to remain hidden from view, signature funnel-like nests are telltale signs of their presence. Now, it’s worth mentioning the Hobo Spider is often referred to as the aggressive house spider.
According to their bios, Hobo Spiders typically don’t bite unless they or their eggs are in danger. When you’re bringing in firewood or cleaning in and around your home, you could stumble upon them without even realizing until it’s too late.
At this point, we reach the true villains of the North American spider population. Females of this slick, black species ranging from half an inch to an inch and a half in length are easily identified by the red hourglass on the underside of their abdomens, and these are the ones to watch out for.
