While many spiders you see around your house are harmless, there are some that can be dangerous when they bite. To protect yourself and your family, it’s important to know what the most common spiders are in the area. You might be surprised to learn what creepy crawlers are out there, especially with the warm weather that Peoria, AZ experiences throughout the year.

1. Brown Recluse

Brown recluse spiders are small but they can be deadly if they end up biting you. One of the identifying details of this spider is the violin shape that they have on their backs, so look for this when trying to differentiate from a house spider. The brown recluse tends to hide in areas where it won’t be found, so you’re most likely to come in contact with one in a dark corner of your garage, a woodpile, or even in the back of your closet.

2. Black Widow

This is one of the most deadly spiders you can come across, so it’s important to seek medical attention if you happen to be bitten by one. While the black color is an identifier, it’s also important to look for a red dot on the abdomen of the body. You’re most likely to see one of these on the ground or underneath rocks and shrubs outside.

3. Wolf Spider

Wolf spiders camouflage quite well thanks to their orange/brown/black splotches and hairy exterior. Although the name might make it sound like this spider is terribly aggressive, it tends to leave humans alone. However, it can be dangerous around pets, as they will chase and jump onto their prey before biting. In most situations, the venom of the wolf spider is not harmful.

4. Tarantulas

A lot of residents in Arizona are surprised to learn that tarantulas are incredibly common throughout Arizona. While their outward appearance and reputation might make them seem scary, these spiders tend to keep to themselves. Additionally, their venom does sting but it generally is not harmful or deadly to humans.

5. Crab Spider

With front legs that curve inward, this spider has an appearance that’s reminiscent of a crab. You’re most likely to see one of these outdoors on trees or plants around your garden rather than indoors.
