Brown Recluse Spider Home Invasion, A Look Into Colorado
What would you do if you bought a house only to find out within days that is was infested with spiders?
That is exactly what happened to a couple in Missouri according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Now, personally I hate spiders, so it surprises me that I am even writing this. But this story just blew me away.
The couple found webs in corners, in window blinds, in vent covers, literally all over the house. Okay, maybe it just needed a deep cleaning right? Wrong, those webs were found literally within days of a deep cleaning.
They had exterminators come in several times and do rounds and it didn't help. At one point they estimated the house to be infested with anywhere from 4,500 to 6,000 Brown Recluse spiders. But that number was in the winter so the estimate is low.
So it triggered me to also look here in Colorado for the good, the bad and the ugly. Did I mention I hate spiders?
Here is a look at spiders across the U.S. below.
So which spiders are poisonous here in Colorado?
- Black Widow
- Brown Recluse (Although rarely found in Colorado)
- Hobo Spider
Okay, I have had enough spiders for today (shaking it off!)!
