Joro Spider New Jersey Heading

New large palm-sized Joro Spider may be moving to New Jersey and New York soon. Stay tuned for potential sightings.

Ah, the joys of summer - the season of bugs. Some insects are helpful, while others can be a real nuisance. And now, there's news of a new "bug" making its way to New Jersey. Officials are warning that a rather large spider known as the Joro Spider is slowly migrating to the Garden State and New York.

Imagine a spider the size of your hand - that's how big the Joro Spider is. University of Georgia research scientist Andy Davis believes it's only a matter of time before these palm-sized spiders start showing up in New York and New Jersey. The Joro Spider, native to East Asia, is known for its wheel-shaped webs and vibrant colors. While their venom isn't harmful to humans or pets, their sheer size can be quite intimidating, especially for those with arachnophobia.

So, what are your thoughts on this new spider species? Personally, I'm not a fan of spiders, so the idea of a giant one roaming around doesn't sit well with me. Hopefully, they won't cause too much trouble once they arrive in Jersey. Have you encountered these spiders before? Share your experiences in the comments below.
