Description

Are Jumping Spiders Dangerous?

Let’s go ahead and address the elephant in the room. You’re wondering whether jumping spiders are poisonous. Technically, yes. Jumping spiders are venomous spiders. They use their venom to paralyze their prey.

However, you needn’t worry about being bitten by one. Jumping spiders are pretty shy and will usually run — or jump — away when humans approach. Additionally, their venom is not dangerous to people because they can't deliver a large enough dose of it to be harmful.

A wonderful macro image Candace! We have learned to live with our Red Back Spiders, and have developed a very effective anti virus injection for them! #1707796
