Yellow Sac Spider Prevention For Moline Homeowners

April 4, 2019

Many Moline homeowners are aware of the issues venomous spiders can bring into their homes. However, many people forget that non-dangerous spiders can be quite a nuisance themselves. While the yellow sac spider is a small, non-dangerous type of spider, it can still cause great frustration for homeowners. Yellow sac spiders are about 5/16 of an inch long, have light beige colored bodies (that are often tinted green), dark-colored legs, and two rows of tiny, beaded eyes.

What Problems Do Yellow Sac Spiders Present?

Though these tiny spiders are not a threat to your health and well being the way black widows or brown recluse spiders are—yellow sac spiders are still capable of creating problems in your peaceful Moline home. They leave large, messy webs in corners, behind shelves, under curtains, and in doorways. These are not only unpleasant to look at, but they may be frightening to individuals who run into them by mistake. Having yellow sac spiders in your home may also draw their predators, such as larger spiders, into your home as well. Additionally, just because yellow sac spiders are not particularly dangerous does not mean they won’t bite. They will and do bite humans when threatened, which can create skin irritations for some individuals.
