White-tailed Spiders have a dark reddish to grey, cigar-shaped body and dark orange-brown banded legs. The grey dorsal abdomen bears two pairs of faint white spots (less distinct in adults) with a white spot at the tip.
As White-tailed Spiders do not make webs, there are no signs to look for, other than the presence of the spiders themselves. They are often found in bathrooms and laundries.
If you know that White-tailed Spiders are present in your area, check your shoes and clothing before wearing them. It is also sensible to check for them in bedding and laundry. White-tails are normally active at night.
