This spider (Tarantula) was spotted in a customer’s yard. Even though I may be in the pest control industry a big spider like this one is still a little scary!
The tarantula was dead so I picked it up. It was very soft to the touch, however; I do not recommend picking up spiders without knowing what type of spider it is.
Here in Henderson, where this tarantula was found, there are 2 poisonous spiders you should stay away from: the Desert Recluse and Black Widow spiders. These spiders are quite poisonous and can hurt you.
