Spider Control in Seattle & Tacoma
the 4,000 known species of spider in the United States, the Northwest is home to quite a few. Lucky for us we only have to pay attention to a handful of dangerous species, including the Black Widow, Hobo spider, and Wolf spider.
Regardless of whether a spider is poisonous or not, no one is comfortable having their home infested by spiders of any kind. Spiders can be scary and create an uncomfortable living environment. They’re especially worrisome if you have children or pets.

Black Widow Spider Removal
The black widow spider is one of the most harmful spiders to humans around the Pacific Northwest, although rarely is their bite lethal. A black widow's bite is so dangerous because their venom affects their victim’s central nervous system. Symptoms of a black widow bite can include abdominal pain, weakness, muscle cramps, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, chest pain and difficulty breathing.
Black widows are well known for their shiny black bodies and legs, combined with a red spot on their abdomen. Females and males can be identified by the different colored marks on their abdomens. Female black widows have two deep red triangles that resemble an hourglass located on their underside. Males are marked with a row of semi-red dots with white or yellow lines around them.
Female black widows are also much larger than males. Males usually range from 3 to 10 millimeters in length while females can grow up to 13 millimeters long. It’s important to be able to identify a female versus a male black widow because only the bites from female black widows are dangerous to humans.
Hobo Spider Control
Unlucky for us, when hobo spiders first landed in the United States, their destination was Seattle. They probably arrived sometime around the 1920s or 1930s. Scientists think hobo spiders were brought over on ships from Europe.
Hobo spiders may also be referred to as funnel weavers because they weave their webs in the shape of funnels. Funnel weaving spiders are large and brown. They range in size from approximately 11 to 18 millimeters in length and their abdomens are decorated with chevron patterns.
You can identify a male hobo from a female hobo because of the frontal palps of a male. The reproductive organs of the male stick out in front of his head. Females also have larger abdomens than males.
Wolf Spider Pest Control
Did you know that a wolf spider can live up to 11 years? There are over 200 types of wolf spiders; types range in size from ½ inch to 1 ½ inches in length.
You can tell a wolf spider by its eyes; they have three rows of eyes with four small eyes on the bottom row and two eyes on the upper two rows. Needless to say, these spider species have excellent eyesight.
Female wolf spiders carry their egg sacs on the end of their abdomens by attaching them to their spinnerets. After the spiderlings hatch from their eggs, they crawl on top of the mother’s abdomen and find safety until they’re old enough to branch out on their own.
Wolf spiders can bite and their bites are venomous. Although biting is a wolf spider’s last defensive resort, humans are oftentimes bitten because they pinch or disturb a wolf spider unknowingly. A female wolf spider will be more prone to biting her victim if she is defending eggs or spiderlings. Their bites can produce swelling, itching, and pain to humans.
