Homeowner Guide to Spiders around the Home and Yard
The 28-page publication includes life-size diagrams and color photographs of the overwhelmingly harmless spiders that inhabit Idaho's homes and gardens. It also includes detailed information on poisonous black widows and hobos and on the yellow sac spiders whose bites are likely less symptomatic but far more frequent. The publication debunks five spider myths and gives suggestions for dealing with spiders around the home.
