How Long Do Jumping Spiders Live?

The lifespan of jumping spiders (Salticidae) varies between species. However, generally, jumping spiders live for about a year, with some living maybe over 3 years. Females tend to live longer than males. Males often live for a few months after reaching sexual maturity, long enough to mate, and then die. It’s also worth noting that many spiders, including some jumping spiders, have a lifespan that is tied to the seasonal cycle. This means that they hatch in the spring, mature over the summer, and then the adults die in the fall or winter. The eggs they lay before dying then overwinter and hatch the following spring, continuing the cycle.
