What is the spider most often found in the Florida home?


There are many types of spider that can be found indoors in Florida. Perhaps the most common three are the domestic house spider (Tegenaria domestica), the southern house spider (Kukulcania hibernalis), and the American house spider (Parasteatoda tepidariorum). Jumping spiders (the Salticidae family), yellow sac spiders (Cheiracanthium genus), and daddy long legs (The Opiliones order) are also common. The two spiders to be wary of that you might find in a home are black widow spiders (The Latrodectus genus) and brown recluses (Loxosceles reclusa), which are both capable of delivering nasty venomous bites.
