The common house spider gets its name from the fact that it is usually the spider most often encountered indoors. These pests, while less likely to cause significant damage to your property like a termite or rodent might, can still be a nuisance and potentially dangerous depending on the species of spider you're dealing with. That's why it's imperative you contact the pros at Guardian Pest Control at the first sign of an infestation. Our Providence team offers interior and exterior spider control services and can help you identify conditions that may contribute to your existing spider infestation.
What Is the Most Common Spider in Rhode Island?
As previously mentioned, the most common spider in the Rhode Island area is a house spider. These eight-legged creatures can range in size and color, though they are typically either tan, gray, or brown, with markings along their body. They tend to build their webs close to human dwellings and are known to hide in dark, quiet areas where food, warmth, and shelter can be found. This might include hiding in attics, basements, garages, sheds, beneath furniture or sinks, and inside firewood.
While house spiders are common, there are other species of spiders that can also find their way into your home or business. Below you will find some additional types of spiders that are known in the Rhode Island and Massachusetts areas.

It is a common misconception that all spiders are poisonous to humans. While most spiders do have venom, it typically will not cause harm to a human but rather the spiders prey. In fact, the vast majority of spiders don’t pose a significant risk to humans. For example, wolf spiders, orb-weavers, and jumping spiders, all look intimating, but aren’t actually dangerous. That being said, spiders can bite when they feel threatened or provoked, and while the bite is typically harmless, it’s best to leave these pests alone.
It’s important to note, that there are some species of spiders that are indeed venomous and potentially dangerous to humans, most commonly the black widow spider and brown recluse spider. If bitten by one of these spiders, it’s best to seek medical care right way.
