Household Insects and Spiders

The Oregon Department of Agriculture created this guide to provide information about some common, but still unfamiliar, insects and spiders spotted in homes across Oregon. There are over 20,000 species of insects in Oregon, therefore this is not a complete guide. This guide is intended to help residents make informed decisions about pest control. We hope to reduce some of the unfounded fears and misconceptions about insects and spiders.
