Spiders are no strangers to most NJ homeowners. In fact, the state is home to around 39 species. Find out more about some common species of spiders that you might see in or around your home.
Common House Spider
This brown spider is sometimes mistaken for a “brown widow” thanks to its coloring, but it doesn’t have the same harmful bite. Common house spiders are often seen inside homes and commercial buildings.
Garden spiders are larger spiders that are typically black and yellow. These harmless spiders weave webs outside to catch insect pests, so you don’t usually need NJ pest control services to deal with them.
This black and white spider has a striped pattern that resembles a zebra. Zebra jumpers can be seen leaping around near buildings and sometimes inside them.
Southern Black Widow
These spiders have black bodies with a red hourglass pattern on their abdomen. Their venomous bite makes them one of the more dangerous spiders to have around, although they’re shy and stay hidden most of the time.
Longbodied Cellar Spider
These long-legged spiders are usually found in basements, sheds and other dark areas, although you might see them on your ceilings as well.
