Types of Spiders in Oregon

In Oregon, you may spot a few spider species indoors or around your property. While some are harmless, others could require pest control prevention. Here are some common Oregon species:

Black Widow Spider
(Latrodectus hesperus):

With its shiny black body and striking red hourglass marking on the underside of its abdomen, black widows are hard to miss. Although encounters with these pests are rare, their bites can cause severe reactions that may necessitate medical attention.
Hobo Spider (Eratigena agrestis):
Often mistaken for brown recluse spiders, hobo spiders are typically brown with chevron-shaped markings on their abdomens. While their bites were once thought to cause necrosis, recent studies suggest their venom is less harmful than previously believed.
Giant House Spider (Eratigena atrica):
Found commonly in homes and buildings, giant house spiders are large and typically brown in color. Despite their intimidating appearance, their bite is not considered medically significant.
Cross Orbweaver Spider (Araneus diadematus):
Recognizable by its intricate orb-shaped web adorned with a distinctive cross-shaped pattern, the cross orbweaver is a common garden spider in Oregon. While harmless to humans, their large webs can still become a nuisance for homeowners.

Top Signs of a Spider Bite

Spider bite reactions can vary widely, and not all bites result in severe symptoms. Long-term effects are unlikely unless bitten by a black widow or brown recluse spider. Here are some common signs of a spider bite, regardless of the species:
Localized Pain and Itching: Most spider bites cause localized pain, itching, and irritation at the bite site. This discomfort may range from mild to moderate and typically resolves within a few days.
Redness and Swelling: The area around the bite may become red, swollen, and tender. This inflammatory response is the body’s natural reaction to the spider’s venom or saliva.
Mild Rash or Hives: Some individuals may develop a mild rash or hives around the bite site. This reaction is usually a result of the body’s immune response to the spider’s venom and may resolve on its own. If it lingers or gets worse, contact a medical professional.
Minor Bruising: In some cases, spider bites can cause minor bruising or discoloration of the skin. This bruising is typically localized to the area of the bite and may fade over time.
If you have an unfortunate encounter with a black widow, watch for severe muscle cramps and spasms in your abdomen and back. Typically, these symptoms are accompanied by sweating, dizziness, nausea, and difficulty breathing. Individuals may develop a fever and experience chills or other flu-like symptoms in severe cases. 
Regardless of the species, contacting a doctor at the first sign of a spider bite is always a smart idea, especially if symptoms continue to worsen.
