Most people don’t welcome the sight of a stray spider or web. While most spiders inside a home or business are not a threat to humans, there are a few species in New Mexico that can be very dangerous. While many spiders are harmless, that doesn’t necessarily mean you want them hanging around your home or business.

Which Spiders are Dangerous?

Several spiders pose a serious threat to humans. In New Mexico, the two spiders that are the deadliest to humans are the black widow and the brown recluse. Since a few people die each year from the bite of either of these two spiders, it’s extremely important for any person that is bitten by one of these spiders to seek treatment immediately. In some cases, hospitalization may be necessary.

Identifying Poisonous Spiders: Black Widow

A female black widow spider can be easily recognized by the red hourglass on the underside of the abdomen. The male is considerably smaller than the female, with a body up to half an inch long. The black widow prefers to live outdoors. When black widows do live inside, they can be found in dark, undisturbed areas.

Poisonous Spiders: Brown Recluse

The brown recluse spider can be identified by the darker brown hourglass on its back. The brown recluse loves to be indoors, and generally stays out of sight. It may never be seen–until you reach into a dark spot where it is hiding. Then it will bite.

Other Poisonous Spiders in New Mexico

There are plenty of other spiders in New Mexico, such as the grass spider, wolf spider, hobo spider, and the rock spider, just to name a few. These spiders do not have the same strong venom in their bite, but it is very painful, and treatment may be required.
