Creepy Crawlers You Might Spot Around Your House This Fall

Cooler temperatures could mean that more spiders will try to find shelter inside your home. While many are harmless, there are some that could cause problems if they bite you. Watch out for these New Jersey spiders in and around your home this fall and winter.

Black Widow

Black widows are known for being venomous, but they’re not very aggressive. These black spiders have a bright red marking on their abdomen. Their bites can cause breathing problems and other health issues, especially for younger children and elderly individuals.

Brown Recluse

Brown recluses are spiders with light brown coloring. These spiders often remain hidden in boxes and other sheltered areas. Their bite can cause severe side effects in some people.


Orbweavers aren’t aggressive and rarely bite. However, you could disturb them by accident if you walk into their large, round webs outdoors.

Wolf Spider

Wolf spiders are large, but you don’t have to worry much about them biting. These non-aggressive spiders are furry and often confused with tarantulas.

Yellow Sac Spider

Yellow sac spiders can have painful bites and are known for being aggressive, especially if you disturb them. These bright yellow spiders usually come out at night and can easily be seen due to their coloring.
