The thought of any type of creature crawling across your bed at night is quite unsettling. But knowing a spider may come creeping across your pillow is enough to ruin a good night’s sleep. Spiders can crawl on you while you are sleeping. But the good news is that they aren’t after you. Spiders want to avoid human contact as much as people want to avoid spiders. So unless there is some sort of food source for them in or around your bed, spiders are not likely to come crawling on you while you sleep.
Spiders love to eat bugs and other creepy crawlies. If you have crumbs or plates of half eaten food next to your bed, flies or other bugs maybuzz around, attracting spiders. By simply removing any food from your bedroom, you will likely not have any skittering bug friends at night. If you happen to see multiple spiders not only in your bedroom, but in other places in your home, you may have a spider infestation. Giving your local pest control professional a call can eliminate the spiders from your home so you can sleep peacefully at night, knowing there won’t be eight tiny legs creeping across your cheek.
Though spiders try their best to avoid humans, it is certainly possible to get bit. Many species are experts at camouflaging, like the wolf spider, and can surprise you. If you accidentally pick up something with a spider in it, or stick your hand in a pocket, or your foot in a boot, you may receive a painful bite.
There are two common venomous spiders in the United States to look out for. The Black Widow and the Brown Recluse are two spiders you do not want to mess with and may require medical attention if you get bit.
