Jumping Spiders In DC, MD & VA
Jumping spiders often make people wonder if spiders can fly. The good news is that spiders can’t fly, but jumping spiders can jump incredible distances. Learning about jumping spiders is the best way to keep these predators from taking over your indoor or outdoor space!
What are jumping spiders?
Did you know that jumping spiders make up the largest group of spiders in the world? While most jumping spiders have made themselves at home in the tropics, many call the United States home.
There are many types of jumping spiders, each with a unique appearance, but, in general, these spiders are of the smaller variety, with most being one inch or less in size. Their eyes are uniquely placed (two pairs of forward-facing eyes and two other pairs pointing outward) and provide jumping spiders with excellent vision to hunt and keep themselves out of harm’s way.
As their name suggests, these spiders excel at jumping. They will jump to ambush prey (from the ground or above) or quickly move away from predators. Jumping spiders produce silk but don’t typically use it to build webs; they primarily use it as a tether to keep them safe when jumping.
Are jumping spiders dangerous?
Jumping spiders only pose a threat to their insect prey. They are not dangerous to people. Like any spider, jumping spiders will bite if they are being squished or otherwise feel threatened. However, these spiders are more likely to use their superior jumping skills to move out of the way of danger. Though they shouldn’t be encouraged to take over our indoor or outdoor spaces in large numbers, they are more of a harmless spider species.
Why do I have a jumping spider problem?
Jumping spiders prefer to live outside in areas with plenty of sunshine and vegetation. Gardens, landscaping, and grassy areas offer them places to hide and easy access to their prey. Our properties are prone to attracting spiders and the insects they feed on because they provide both with so many different places to hide, hunt, and lay their eggs.
Where will I find jumping spiders?
Jumping spiders thrive outside and are active except for the coldest parts of the winter season. Sheds, garages, play structures, outdoor furniture, gardens, and landscaping are places we regularly find jumping spiders.
While jumping spiders prefer living outside, don’t put it past them to move into your home while chasing their insect prey or to locate a nice quiet spot to lay their eggs. We can also unknowingly transport them inside on something like a potted plant or piece of firewood.
