Common pests in texas


Though most species of spiders are usually harmless, there are dangerous spiders which can be found in Texas. The dangerous spiders of Texas are venomous and hence their bites can easily kill.

The most common poisonous spiders found in this state include Black Widow spiders and Brown Recluse spiders. Generally, they are never aggressive but can easily bite when provoked. Also, the females can be very nervous when they are breeding and hence more aggressive. The females usually seek refuge in homes to breed and can be found in dark areas of the house such as the basement, washroom and even in bedrooms.

Tarantulas, large species of the spider family, are also common in this state. They may appear frightening, but generally, tarantulas do not bite people. As a matter of facts, they are beneficial because they feed on other pests. However, this is not a justified reason to have them in your house.

Moreover, they are usually resistant to common over-the-counter pests' repellants.
