    I was going trough google looking for what time of year I can find jumping spiders(?), and came across that link, this info didn't sound true to me , about the jumping spider and wolf spider, ill quote some stuff for you.

    Now, I thought jumping spiders are too small to bite ? correct me if i'm wrong?

    Here is what they had to say about wolfies

    Spiderpharm has this to say about P. johnsoni:

    "This species may bite when disturbed and in defense of its retreat and egg sac. Typically, there is an immediate sharp pain at the bite site, which dissipates rapidly. In some cases, the pain may extend from the bite site and there may be inflammation with persistent pain, which last a few days."

    -from: http://spiderpharm.com/venoms/spider/salticidae/phidippus_johnsoni.htm

    --which is nowhere near what the calpoison site described.
