Don’t let the name common house spider fool you. If you are having a hard time identifying what kind of arachnid you have, call us at University Termite and Pest Control so you aren’t putting yourself too close to what may be a venomous spider.

Common House Spiders

The common house spider will appear small and have yellowish and white stripes that are angled. The female will lay anywhere from 250-300 eggs in a sac and multiple egg sacs on her web.

Honorable Mention Spiders

The following are a few species that are not as common to see in Tucson, AZ as the ones we have discussed but may still be seen and you should be aware of:

  • *Black widow spider – also venomous*
  • Jumping spider
  • Widow spider
  • Cellar spider
  • Wolf spider
  • Hobo spider

It is best to get them out of the house and away from your loved ones, no matter the spider. Our University Termite and Pest Control team is trained and equipped to deal with all kinds of arachnids and pests.

How do I Get Rid of Spiders?


While spiders help us eliminate unwanted household pests and insects, we don’t want to see spiders inside the house. Remember that most spiders will not bite people since they are focused on insects, but we need to get rid of them nonetheless.

The most efficient way to remove these 8-legged pests from your home is to call the professionals. At University Termite and Pest Control, we pride ourselves on providing a responsible and effective means to get rid of and remove spiders from your property. But, of course, we will also help with whatever insects lure them into building webs in your home.
