Spiders – North Carolina & Beyond

The venomous spiders of the eastern United States migrate to North Carolina every year in numbers as large as one million, carrying millions of arachnids with them. Because of the size and quantity of their arrivals, and the fact that they have the potential to spread rapidly, it is important that we take care of the spiders while we can. As we come into the springtime, a particularly severe season of hunting is likely, especially as many abandoned houses and buildings remain in the woods – any spider, bird or mammal in these shadows can be just a few steps away from a hungry creature. If you want to keep the forest preserve, pets and wildlife protected, understanding how to control and contain the spider population so that it does not overrun our preserves will help everyone involved.

Controlling Spiders in Your House

While there are some general rules for spiders that we can all understand, when it comes to spiders that live in our country – or that we want to control – there are some details that become particularly important. One of the most fundamental principles of controlling spiders is the need to use an insecticide designed to either restrict the species or to kill them. While there are some exceptions, such as black widow spiders, which do not pose a significant risk to people, if left unchecked, even the most timid of spiders can quickly expand to numbers that threaten the conservation of the species. Using an insecticide that specifically targets the spider’s species – rather than the individual animal – is an essential step in ensuring that the population is controlled.

Many people unfamiliar with spiders may not realize that the scientific name of a particular species refers to the genus or type of spider in which it belongs. Not only is this important for identification purposes, but the word “spider” is also used to describe the broad range of genera of spiders that exist. In North Carolina, a large portion of the species occurring in this state, especially in the woods along the central ridge of the Soddy Mountains, are known simply as “scorpions”, because they usually feed on other insects in their range. Other common species are often identified as “venomous spiders” or “book spiders”. Most often, however, when a spider is found in its natural habitat, it is identified as “raphosporous spiders” or “venomous spiders and book lice”.
