Despite spiders’ helpful activity of preying on insects, some humans find them very scary, and some species are harmful to people. Arizona contains different spiders such as wolf spiders and orb weaver spiders.
Species of wolf spiders are common in Arizona, and even though the name sounds menacing, do not get too anxious about the prospect of health problems due to their bite. The Copper State also contains orb weaver spiders, which have abdomens that are generally relatively large. The Western black widow spider (Latrodectus hesperus) can be present near structures and it is not likely to be aggressive. Still, a black widow spider bite can produce a lot of pain.
Here’s one of the most important facts to keep in mind: If a spider has bitten you and severe symptoms crop up, get medical attention. You may be pleased to learn that the brown recluse spider does not call Scottsdale or the state of Arizona home.
