Daddy Longlegs (Cellar Spider)

The cellar spider, or daddy longlegs is a group of many different species. They are named for their frequent appearance in cellars or their disproportionately long legs. Daddy longlegs’ cause no harm to people, and are actually predators of many other pests in the home. The webs they spin in the corner of the home can be a nuisance, and build up more rapidly than other spiders – which warrants control. Typically you will see them hanging upside down from their webs. When disturbed, this spider will vibrate quickly on its web. A combination of their thin bodies and vibrating behavior will cause them to look like a blur.
