Grass Spiders In DC, MD & VA

Spiders come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. One species we see here are grass spiders. You can learn more about grass spiders and the best practices to keep them away in this handy pest guide and hear what the professionals at Miche Pest Control say.

What are grass spiders?

Grass spiders are often confused with other types of spiders, like wolf spiders. They are generally brown with darker bodies and lighter legs with two dark lines running parallel down their backs. On their abdomens, they have a chevron-style pattern from front to back. Grass spiders grow to about 3/4 of an inch, and females are larger than males.

Are grass spiders dangerous?

There are two dangerous spiders in North America, but grass spiders are not one of them. They can bite, although it is rare, as they are shy, preferring to stay away from people. They are also fast and tend to scurry away quickly.

If you experience a bite from one of these spiders, you might have mild pain, swelling, and itchiness. But some people are also allergic to spiders, so it's best to monitor your symptoms if unsure.

Why do I have a grass spider problem?

If you know anything about spiders, you likely know they are predators, with many using webs they construct to catch their prey. No matter how they catch their prey, food is one reason you will see grass spiders around your property.

Another reason you might see grass spiders, especially in the fall, is because they are looking for somewhere warm during dropping temperatures outside.

Where will I find grass spiders?

Because they feed on other insects, grass spiders prefer to build their webs in places where they can easily find prey. Typically, grass spiders make themselves at home in grass, ground cover, weeds, bushes, leaf and brush piles, and other similar places.

Grass spiders might make their way inside but they are not a species that does well indoors, so with the help of pest experts, you can create a preventative barrier around your home to keep them out.

How do I get rid of grass spiders?

As mentioned above, grass spiders, like other species, are attracted to places because of prey pests, so the best way to get rid of them is with professional pest control.
