Do House Spiders Bite?

House Spider Bites

House spiders rarely bite unless they feel threatened. However, spiders may defend themselves when crushed in shoes or clothing being put on by a human.

Bite Symptoms

The bites of house spiders are not medically threatening. In the event of severe swelling, lesions or headaches, victims should immediately seek medical attention. If possible, take the spider along for proper identification.


It is best to allow a medical professional to determine the best treatment.
