Comments & ID Thoughts

Have killed about 15 of these in our new camper that was manufactured in Indiana in February, then transported to Tampa, Florida in March. We purchased it and brought it to southwest Georgia where its been for the past 8 months. Most of them have been about 1/4 of an inch, with only one that was much bigger, about 1/2 an inch. My initial ID guess is the Red House Spider. Given the number, I’m very concerned we have an infestation (we’ve been full time RV’ers for 3 years and the only insects we’ve ever briefly had a problem with are sugar ants). Unfortunately, there’s no sign of a nest or web to tell where they’re coming from!

They hide from humans most of the time and can live for quite awhile in a dark spot. They might be under or behind an appliance, in spaces between cushions. There are a lot of spots in a camper they… Read more »
