Jumping Spider Habitat

Depending on the type and origin of a jumping spider species, habitat can vary widely. They are distributed throughout the world and can be found near the windows of North American homes or in the tropics of South America. Some jumping spider habitats include deserts, scrublands, and tropical forests, where they reside within leaves and wood bark. Inside the house, jumping spiders are found in areas inhabited by insects, such as windowsills, walls and planters. They are usually accidentally brought in on plants or people.
