Are Spiders Harmful?
The majority of spiders that are found here in Minnesota are relatively harmless. Spiders are usually very shy and will only bite you when they feel threatened or if mishandled. Bites produce temporary moderate to slight pain, localized swelling, and redness similar to a bee sting. The only two species of spiders that pose a danger to humans are the Black Widow and the Brown Recluse although uncommon, even rare, in this region. However, some people may develop allergies from hair and skin shed by spiders.

It is possible to get rid of spiders with a do-it-yourself project, but there are some drawbacks. It can be time consuming, expensive, ineffective and may only kill the spiders that you can see and does not target the other spiders in your home that you can’t see.
