There are over 40,000 species of spiders worldwide, with approximately 3,700 of those species occurring in North America. While they do not spread disease and will eat other harmful pests, spiders are considered a nuisance pest in homes and businesses.
Spiders often evoke more psychological damage than physical. People’s dislike for spiders can range from general annoyance, to an irrational psychological fear, called arachnophobia.
Spider webs can also create problems in residential and commercial settings. Spider webs are often considered unsightly and give visitors an impression that a space is not clean or inviting.
