How to get rid of spiders in Seattle, Olympia, Puyallup & Tacoma.
Most spiders are beneficial. They feed on a variety of small insects including mosquitoes, moths, and other flies. Many species build intricate webs in strategic locations like windows, ceilings and corners. Since the webs are highly visible, most homeowners choose to remove them.
Virtually all spiders have venom and fangs, but only a few are likely to bite humans. The hobo spider is common throughout Washington state and is quite common in and around homes in western Washington. The black widow spider is common in eastern Washington but rarely found in western Washington. Contrary to popular belief, the brown recluse spider does not occur naturally in Washington.
