Identifying Spiders in New Jersey

Spiders. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors, spin webs, and are super fast when skittering across a surface. On top of that, they look menacing and other worldly, and can make a grown person cringe.

There are around 50,000 spider types in the world and Allison Pest Control NJ takes care of handling at least 39 of these spider species that inhabit homes, sheds and surrounding properties. While spiders play their own role in nature, many pose no health threat to humans, but there are some arachnids that have a venomous bite.
