Cellar Spiders

Cellar spiders are commonly known as “daddy-long-legs” because of their long, skinny legs and are found in dark and damp places like cellars and basements but also in warm and dry places like household windows and attics.

They spin messy, irregular webs under rocks, loose bark, and mammal burrows. The irregular web tangles other insects as prey.

Also known as “Pholcidae”

Cellar spiders build loose, messy, irregular, tangled webs in corners, and hang upside down in them. They continually add to the webs resulting in extensive webbing over a brief time.

Then the web is disturbed, or spider is threatened, the cellar spider can rapidly shake its body in a rotary gyration movement to confuse the prey and eventually capture it.

WHERE THEY’RE FOUND

Cellar spiders and webs are most commonly found in dark and damp places, like basements, crawl spaces, and cellars. But they can also be found in the undisturbed areas such as corners of garages, sheds, barns and warehouses, on eaves, closets, ceilings, windows, sink cabinets and plumbing traps.

PEST THREAT LEVEL

3/10

Cellar spiders are a nuisance pest and do not pose a threat to humans.

Although they do bite, but their weak mouth parts keep them from puncturing human skin and injecting venom.
