Hobo Spider

Example of Hobo Spider

Hobo spiders look about as creepy as they come.They vary from ½” to 1 ¾” in body length, with dark brown carapace. Most people would rather live with a hobo than a hobo spider. These nasty spiders love dry, dark, cluttered and dirty environments so typically attics, basements, or storage spaces are their preferred hangout, where they can lay in wait for other small insects to fall into their funnel-shaped web. Though their bite isn’t deadly, it can produce some nasty side effects such as:

  • Muscular weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Severe headache
  • Joint pain

Remove the threat

While most arachnophobics would argue that the hobo spider’s diet consists of primarily humans, hobo spiders usually live outside feasting on little bugs and that’s where they need to stay. If you find an infestation in your home, removing it quickly is best for the mental stress of all who live there.
