Spiders in Your Home? What are the Dangers?

So you may have bats in your Virginia home. Bats are indeed extremely important to the ecosystem as they keep insect numbers low. So important in fact, that it is against the law in the United States to kill them, and a majority of the bat species here in Virginia are endangered.

Despite their value to the ecosystem, they are very dangerous to have in your home for two reasons. Damage to your home and they possess an extreme health hazard aside from rabies.

Damage to your Home

The good news is that spiders cause no damage to your home. They do not burrow into walls, destroy carpets, chew wires, or leave any droppings. The only evidence they leave behind is their webs which do not do any harm to your home. These webs are not flammable and will not combust into flames. Rather than bursting into flames, they will melt.
