SCHEDULE MY INSPECTION There are about 20 species of cellar spiders that live in the United States and are labeled as short or long bodied. This classification is made by the size of their legs. The long spiders have legs that are about two inches long, while the short ones are about 5/16 inches long. The long ones are much more common and look a lot like daddy long legs. If you see them on their webs, which are usually in high corners, they will most likely be upside down waiting to prey on insects. These type of spiders are usually found in damp locations such as the cellar, basements, or crawl spaces. They will not cause you any harm, except maybe just a frightening experience and lots of webs around your home.

Signs of Infestation:

An infestation of cellar spiders does not cause much harm but could be a disturbance if you're afraid of spiders. They are not poisonous, don't bite, and have some benefits. These types of spiders help to level out populations of other kinds of insects you don't want around your house. As their name describes, this type of spider will most often be found in dark areas way back in your cellar. Another sign of an infestation is seeing many webs around. They are known to produce an abundant amount of webs in their nesting area and places they travel.
