Common spiders in Pekin, IL
The most common species of spiders found living and invading properties in Pekin, Illinois include the following:
Black Widow Spider
These spiders are venomous. If bitten, the venom will affect a person’s nervous system. These spiders are shiny black in color and have a distinct red hourglass-like marking on their backs.
Brown Recluse Spider
These spiders are also venomous. The venom from a brown recluse spider bite will cause the area around the bite to ulcerate. The wound is slow to heal and can be prone to infection. Brown recluse spiders have yellowish-brown to dark brown bodies and very long legs that are a darker color than the rest of their body. They also have a unique violin-like pattern on the top of their body.
These spiders eat venomous spiders like the brown recluse and black widow. They have a small body that is yellow, gray, or light brown and have eight very long and skinny legs. These spiders are often confused with “daddy long-legs”.
These spiders are the most common species of spider to be found living and hiding out in homes and other buildings. They are yellowish-brown in color with a white colored abdomen and dark chevron-like markings on their body and legs.
These spiders do not create webs to catch their prey. Instead, they hunt and chase down their prey. Wolf spiders have a stout body that is covered in hair and their hunting speed comes from their eight spiny legs.
Yellow Sac Spiders
This species of spider is small and pale beige to yellow in color. These spiders are typically found creating their webs in trees, bushes, and garden areas.
