Pest NameDescription 
Hackled band weaversHackled band weaversThese are robust spiders commonly found in crawl-spaces in western Washington. Hackled band weavers have grayish abdomens and chestnut colored legs and carapaces (exoskeleton over their head and thorax). A bite from a hackled band weaver results in a temporarily painful sensation much like a yellowjacket sting. If you are bitten by a spider, you may want to seek medical attention. Also, bring the spider to an expert for correct identification. For more information, see the following publication: Common Spiders of Washington EM113E at
