Jumping Spider Bite

Jumping spider bites are not considered particularly harmful to humans, especially since the species tends to flee from humans rather than attack. While jumping spiders do produce venom, this venom is not considered medically threatening.

If at all possible, the biting spider should be captured and brought along to assist the physician in identifying the cause of the person’s symptoms. In many cases, spiders have been crushed following a bite; the remains of the arachnid may still be sufficient for identification.
