What Kinds of Spiders Kill Other Pests?

The emotional energy that creates a fear of spiders is probably a waste when it focuses on creatures that do not deserve it. The roughly 3,400 known species of spiders in North America provide free pest control by using venom to paralyze their insect prey or by spinning webs to trap them. Recognizing Insect Predator Spiders Most of California’s spiders wait for insect prey to enter their webs, but others take a more direct approach. None of these attack humans. Wolf With an appearance that vaguely resembles a tarantula, the wolf spider has no web. It's two large eyes that sit above a row of smaller ones help it attack other spiders and ground-dwelling insects usually at night. Common House As its name indicates, the house spider usually builds webs in the corners of homes, but it also weaves its characteristic three-dimensional cobweb outdoors. It feeds on insects, mosquitoes, and flies....

Don't Get Stung This Memorial Day

Memorial Day is set aside to remember the troops and everything that they have done for us, but for many people, it also marks the start of warm weather and sunny skies.

What is an Earwig?

The term “earwig” is generically applied to insects in the order Dermaptera, of which there are at least 2,000 species. Found all over the globe, these bugs are easily identified by their long, almost worm-like bodies and a distinctive pair of pincers that come together near their heads. Pincers aside, earwigs bear a striking resemblance to crickets. Because earwigs are nocturnal, preferring dark, moist places during the day, many people with earwig infestations are unaware how severe the infestation is, and others do not even know the problem exists at all. Luckily, there are some things you can look for if you suspect a severe infestation in your home or yard: • Look for molted skin casings: Like snakes, earwigs frequently shed their skins.
