What do jumping spiders look like?

Jumping spiders can come in several different color varieties, black, tan, brown, or gray; whatever the color they usually have pale to white markings on their body and legs.

Their body is compact and they have 8 short powerful legs that allow them to jump 25 times their own size. Jumping spiders are active during the day, seeming to enjoy bright sunshine and are very successful predators.  

Are jumping spiders dangerous?

Jumping spiders are not dangerous to people and are considered to be a nuisance pest. They do have the ability to bite, but they very rarely do, they would rather jump away from danger than attack.

Jumping spiders are venomous, but their venom is usually not strong enough to cause a serious reaction in people.

Why do I have a jumping spider problem?

Jumping spiders are found living outside in places like grass and in tall, dense vegetation. These spiders can enter into homes through small cracks and crevices that they found in the exterior walls of homes and other buildings. However, more often than not this species of spider is brought inside accidentally on a person, plant, package, or other objects. Once inside they are typically found under furniture, in the fold of curtains, between books on bookshelves, in the cracks of floors, and around door and window moldings.

How do I make my property less attractive to jumping spiders?

There are several steps that you can take to help prevent jumping spiders from making their way inside of your New Jersey home. One of the best steps to take is to inspect the exterior of your home and seal any cracks or crevices that are found in its foundation or exterior walls. It is a good idea to caulk spaces found around windows, doors, and utility entrances. It is also important to make sure to inspect your clothing, packages, and potted plants for jumping spiders before bringing them inside of your home.

‟I’m so happy we went with Arrow! We had been using another pest control company and still had a lot of spiders and crickets!! We switched to Arrow and after the first use with them, all the bugs were gone. They do a great job, very thorough, professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend using their services if you have any bug issues!”
