Types of Spiders

A lot of spider species are common in Canada, but most types you’ll find here are not dangerous or harmful to humans. However, in Toronto, spider extermination is still a highly sought-after service.

These are some of the most common types of spiders we’re called upon to eradicate:

Brown Recluse Spiders

This type of spider is light brown in colour with a dark brown mark on its back. They tend to be found outdoors or in woodpiles, but they are sometimes found under furniture or in enclosed areas like closets. Their bite is often painful and creates an open sore that requires medical attention or treatment. The brown recluse spider’s name originated from their reclusive habits and colouration.

Black Widow Spiders

This species of spiders are black, as the name implies, and always shining. They can be found inside firewood or in woodpiles, but they also like to be in secluded areas, like boxes, where they can reside far from disturbance. This spider spins its web close to the ground. If a human is bitten by a black widow spider, they will experience symptoms such as fever, nausea, high blood pressure, and constant sweating.

Common House Spiders

This type of spider is yellowish-brown in colour with a stretched out abdomen. They are found worldwide, typically in basements, garages, crawl spaces, and inside closets. They spin their webs around windows close to light sources to attract prey. This species poses no threat to people.

Jumping Spiders

Jumping spiders have short, compact legs and are mostly black in colour with pale lines and are not poisonous.

Long-bodied Cellar Spiders

Pale-yellow in colour with a small body and long skinny legs, this particular spider type is mostly found in damp or dark areas like basements. This species does not bite and are not harmful to humans.

Wolf Spiders

These spiders are dark-brown with a hairy body and long, spiny legs. They are mostly found close to ground level. They do bite, but it’s very rare unless provoked. These spiders do not hunt with a web.

Facts about spiders

  • Generally, spiders are arachnids and can be easily differentiated from other insects since they have eight legs with no wings or antennae
  • Some spider species can be found in humid or moist areas while other types of spiders might be found in warm, dry places.
  • Spiders are mostly found in dark places or between cracks so they can make the material they need to build their webs.
  • Spiders sometimes are said to be beneficial because they can help control other pests in the home.

Spider life cycle

These are the stages and changes experienced by a spider from the time of birth to adulthood. During their lifecycle, spiders evolve from an egg into a fully grown adult spider.

Spider Egg: ​This is the first stage of the spider’s life cycle. It occurs after mating when the female spider stores the male spider sperm until it is ready to produce eggs. The egg is stored in an egg sac where the female spider fertilizes the egg as it emerges. This egg sac is protected by the female spider until it hatches. Some spider species might leave the egg in a safe place on its own until it hatches, while some spiders carry the egg sac with them and bite the egg sac when it is ready to hatch.

Spiderlings:​ This is the immature stage of the spider. At this stage, they look just like the parent spider but quite a bit smaller.

Adulthood:​ When the spider reaches this stage, it is said to be fully grown and can therefore mate and the life cycle begins all over again.
