Pest Control

Green lynx spiders are beneficial spiders, used as a natural form of pest management in agriculture. In cotton fields, Lynx spiders hunt several moth species and their larvae including the Bollworm moth, the cotton Leafworm moth and the cabbage Looper moth. In gardens and shrubs, Lynx spiders hide among foliage and ambush passing insects. Unfortunately, they also prey upon other beneficial insects such as the honeybee.

Green lynx spiders are non-poisonous and rarely bite humans but the bite can be painful. Females, when threatened, are known to spit venom from their fangs (up to 8 inches). If the venom enters the eye, it may or may not cause irritation.
