What Kinds of Spiders Are in Georgia?

Georgia is home to a variety of spider species, each with its own unique characteristics and behaviors. Many of us are familiar with the Joro spiders that seem to be invading our state, but there are many others. Some of the most common types of spiders found in Georgia include:

  1. Brown Recluse Spider: Brown recluse spiders are known for their distinctive violin-shaped marking on their cephalothorax. They are light to medium brown in color and typically measure about 0.25 to 0.75 inches in body length. Brown recluse spiders are venomous and can deliver a painful bite that may cause tissue damage and necrosis.
  2. Black Widow Spider: Black widow spiders are shiny black in color with a distinctive red or orange hourglass-shaped marking on their abdomen. They are venomous and can deliver a neurotoxic bite that may cause severe pain, muscle cramps, and other symptoms. Female black widow spiders are larger than males and typically measure about 1.5 inches in body length, while males are smaller and may have red or pink markings on their abdomen.
  3. Wolf Spider: Wolf spiders are large, robust spiders that are commonly found throughout Georgia. They are typically brown or gray in color with patterned markings on their abdomen. Wolf spiders are ground-dwelling spiders that hunt for prey at night and may enter homes and buildings in search of food and shelter. They are not considered dangerous to humans but may deliver a painful bite if provoked.
  4. Orb Weaver Spider: Orb weaver spiders are known for their intricate, wheel-shaped webs that they use to catch prey. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, depending on the species, and are commonly found in gardens, wooded areas, and other outdoor habitats. Orb weaver spiders are not considered dangerous to humans and are beneficial for controlling insect populations.
  5. Jumping Spider: Jumping spiders are small, agile spiders known for their ability to leap long distances to catch prey. They are typically black or brown in color with patterned markings on their body and legs. Jumping spiders are commonly found both indoors and outdoors and are not considered dangerous to humans.
  6. House Spider: House spiders, also known as cobweb spiders, are small brown or gray spiders commonly found in and around homes and buildings. They build messy, irregular webs in corners, crevices, and other secluded areas where they wait to ambush prey. House spiders are not considered dangerous to humans and are beneficial for controlling insect populations indoors.

Understanding How Spiders Behave

Spiders are primarily carnivorous and play a crucial role in controlling insect populations. They typically hunt for prey using silk webs or by actively stalking their victims. While most spiders are harmless to humans, some species, such as the brown recluse and black widow, can deliver venomous bites that may require medical attention.

Spiders are attracted to areas with ample food sources, such as insects, and prefer dark, secluded spaces to build their webs or burrows. Common indoor hiding spots for spiders include closets, basements, attics, and behind furniture or stored items.
