Arachnophobia is one of the most common and prominent fears in the world! Don’t feel bad if you suffer from this common fear. One way to beat your fears is to learn more about what causes them. In this blog post, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about common house spiders.

what makes a spider a spider?

Did you know that arachnids are not just spiders? In fact, scorpions are also technically arachnids. To be an arachnid rather than an insect, an animal must have four pairs of legs and no antennae, which both spiders and scorpions accomplish.

So what’s the difference between a scorpion and a spider? Well, to be classified as a spider, an animal must have two body parts and fangs.

do i have house spiders?

If you own a house, then you have house spiders. You just might not see them around all the time since they enjoy spaces like your attic, basement, windowsills, or houseplants. But don’t worry, most spiders pose no threat to humans! In North America, there are only two types of spiders with venom that is threatening to humans, the black widow and the brown recluse.
