Spiders details

Spiders are characterized by four pairs of legs, a lack of wings and antennae, and a hard exoskeleton (outer skeleton). With nearly 40,000 species worldwide, they vary greatly in size, shape and colour. Though most spiders are harmless and do not pose a serious threat to your property, they can be a real nuisance to your family and guests.


Common household spiders are generally linked to humidity. This explains why they are mostly found in basements, garages, attics and crawl spaces. However, when an excessive population of spiders invades your home, you may start seeing them in upper corners of rooms, retreated areas, wall cracks and more. It is important to note that every spider web belongs to a different spider. Therefore, if your spider or web encounters exceed the typical odd few in the basement or garage, it may be time to contact Axon Extermination.
