All About Spiders

Spiders are arachnids. Which is a class of arthropods that includes scorpions, ticks and mites. Arachnids differ from insects in various ways. For example, arachnids only have two parts of the body. Whereas insects have 3. Spiders have 6 legs and between 6 – 8 eyes.

There are roughly 1,100 species of spiders in Ireland. However, there are only a small few that can potentially bite. While some consider spiders to be pests, they are beneficial. Spiders keep the insect population in check.

The spider life cycle consists of three phases. Egg, spiderling, and adult. Females can lay up to 3,000 eggs depending on the species. Eggs are mostly laid in silk sacs. And hidden in nests or webs. However, some species carry the silk sacs in a chelicerae. Females die after laying eggs in some spider species.

Spiders enter the larval stage within the egg. They then emerge from the egg as spiderlings. Which is just a miniature version of their adult selves. The average lifespan of a spider is between one or two years. However, many species do not live past one season.

Are Spiders Dangerous?

Spiders indigenous to Ireland are not considered dangerous. However, there are a few spiders that do bite. For the most part, a spider bite in Ireland would have very little effect on a person. However, some spiders bites can cause a reaction. So, if bitten it is important to contact a medical professional.

It is important to contact a spider pest control professional if you have a harmful spider species on your premises. Do not attempt to treat a dangerous species spider infestation.

Do You Have A Spiders Infestation?

  • Spider webs are obvious indicators that there are spiders in your premises. The quantity of webs is determined by the amount of spiders and the species. However, not all spiders use webs. Some burrow and hide in crevices.
  • Spider eggs are a sign of an infestation. Spider eggs can be laid in a silken sac, hidden in a web or carried by the female. If you see silken sacs in webs, a spider infestation is imminent. As each sac contains roughly 100 eggs.

Can I Prevent a Spider Infestation?

There are a few preventative measures available. Firstly, seal up potential entry points to prevent a spider infestation. Such as gaps in doors or windows. Additionally, seal around pipes.

Secondly, closing windows and doors at night, is an obvious but simple preventative measure. Especially in late Autumn as the weather is getting cooler.

Thirdly, as spiders feed on insects, it is important to ensure your premises is insect free. Ants, moths, wasps etc will attract spiders. As they go where the food goes.

And finally, keeping your home or business clean is a simple preventative measure. Vacuum areas that aren't frequented regularly. Regularly clean attics, and any crevices.
