Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Maybe a grey wall spider?
Found on my car. I have seen them IN my car before. First one in April. I've seen about 8 of them in or on my car. Small and grey. They jump. I do travel to regina beach often which is wooded with lots of trees and bushes. Some sand.

Why are they on and in my car. Haven't seen them anywhere else. How do I get rid of them?
Are they dangerous to humans?

I don’t think it’s a grey wall spider—the abdomen doesn’t match the pattern exactly. Some jumping spiders have been observed to seek out sunny spots, if your car is in the sun; it could also be that an egg sack was laid in your car or you are seeing the same one over and over again. Either way, jumping spiders tend to stay in the same general area for extended periods of time. Technically, not enough research has been done on their venom to know whether it is dangerous, but I handle them all the time without being bitten.
