Hobo Spider (0)

Spiders are one of the most common arthropods found in all seasons. Are you afraid of spiders? No matter what the answer is, you must have thought about getting rid of them at least once in your lifetime. Among thousands of spider types, Hobo spiders are one of those species that you may find in your home. Here, at Mega Pest Control, we help you get rid of these spiders. But let’s first know more about Hobo spiders.

Identification

Hobo spiders are difficult to identify. The spider is huge and hairy. And it can move really fast. Hobo spiders lack colored bands in their legs and they have evenly colored brown legs, which help identify them. Also, many of these spiders have a V-shaped pattern on their abdomens.

How toxic are Hobo Spiders?

There are many species of spiders that are venomous and Hobo spiders also fall under this category. They are not aggressive, unless they feel that their egg sac is being threatened. They usually do not bite but when they do, the bite can gradually get serious.Hobo spiders bite for the sake of their own protection or when they are trapped between skin and the cloth.The bite of Hobo spidersis usually dry,which means no venom is injected. But the bite is dangerous for rabbits, as dermal lesions are seen and in humans, the bite can cause necrosis (localized death of cells). Unfortunately, if a Hobo spider bites you and injects venom, it can form a hole in the skin.

Where are they commonly found?

Hobo spiders are found in damp places,like in the foundations of houses, in the attics of your house and under the rocks. They are found in farming areas as well. Since these spiders cannot climb high, you will usually find them in the lower parts of your home. Their abundance in urban houses is decreasing as giant house spiders are taking their place. If you find hobo spiders inside your house, that is possibly due to the presence of insects that they can prey on.

Remedy

To get rid of Hobo spiders, first of all you should not create any sustainable environment for their existence. You need to clean all the mess inside your home: the basement, storage rooms and empty rooms. Also clean the surrounding of your home too. And most importantly, you need to get rid of the food (the insects) that is attracting Hobo spiders to get inside your home.
