Also known as “cricket spiders,” camel crickets are often found in cool, damp environments such as caves, animal burrows, under stones, or in cellars. Camel crickets are sometimes called “Seaford Jumping Spiders” in Virginia. They are recognizable by their very large hind legs and long, thin antennae, brown color and somewhat humpbacked shape. Their distinctive attributes help them maneuver in their often dark environments through a sense of touch. Because of their limited vision, these crickets will often jump at perceived threats. Although they try to seem intimidating, they are harmless. They are usually “accidental invaders” who wander into homes by mistake from surrounding areas.
