Tucson Tarantula Removal | Safe Tarantula Relocation Services


Tarantulas are one of the most misunderstood creatures in Tucson and surrounding areas. While their large size and hairy appearance can be intimidating, tarantulas are generally harmless to humans. These solitary spiders play a beneficial role in the ecosystem by controlling insect populations. However, finding a tarantula inside your home or business can be an unsettling experience. Bill’s Home Service specializes in the safe removal and relocation of tarantulas, ensuring the safety of both the spiders and your family.


  • Color: Typically black or brown.
  • Size: Can grow up to 5 inches in leg span.
  • Legs: They have 8 legs.
  • Body: Covered in dense hair, which can be flicked off as a defense mechanism.


Tarantulas prefer the arid and desert environments typical of Tucson, where they find plenty of food and suitable habitats. They are nocturnal hunters that feed on insects and sometimes venture into human-occupied areas during their mating season.


While tarantulas are harmless to humans and do not pose health risks, their presence can be alarming due to their size and appearance. They are not aggressive but may bite if provoked, which is generally not harmful.

Control Measures 

Preventing tarantula encounters involves:

  • Sealing cracks and gaps in your home’s foundation, walls, and around doors and windows.
  • Keeping outdoor lighting to a minimum or using yellow lights that are less attractive to the insects that tarantulas feed on.
  • Removing debris, woodpiles, and dense vegetation close to your home that can serve as hiding spots for tarantulas and their prey.
