The Yellow Sac Spider is a common spider that is found in our home state of Virginia. In fact, this spider species is considered to be one of Virginia's most dangerous. However their venom is much weaker than a recluse spider bite. Even so, a Yellow Sac spider bite can leave skin tissue damage and can resemble a brown recluse bite.

Due to their bite they are an unwelcome guest that should be prevented. Eagle Pest Services will share how to identify and control yellow sac spiders.
