Jumping Spider Pest Control Services
Jumping spiders are known for the impressive heights they can jump and their notable big eyes. In the Pacific Northwest, tiny jumping spiders are more commonly spotted than larger jumping spiders and often make their way into residential landscapes during the daytime seeking for smaller pests to prey on.
Jumping Spiders found in the Pacific Northwest are small spiders that typically have 4 pairs of eyes and – as you can guess by their name – can jump up to 40 times the length of their body.
Jumping spiders are the largest family of spiders with over 6,000 types of subspecies. Averaging a ½ inch long, Jump spiders are covered in thick hairs and can be black, brown, or gray with different colored markings such as red, blue, white, or yellow.
You may be wondering: are jumping spiders friendly? Jumping spiders are known to be curious creatures. Even though this small pest can bite when threatened – there is no need to worry about a poisonous jumping spider bite. They are not a huge threat to humans.
Jumping spiders like to wander into homes actively looking for prey. Unlike other spiders, they don’t normally create spider webs within the constraints of your home as they utilize the power of their vision to prey. Jumping spiders may continue to visit the perimeter of your house out of curiosity and in hopes of hunting down smaller insects.
