Thousands of little black spiders

Asked January 13, 2020, 1:41 PM EST

There are thousands of little black spiders that move rapidly in my lawn. I live in South Africa and they have survived the wet winter, the warm spring and the hot summer. Not scared of them, just seriously want to get rid of them.

I know that there is an abundance of little black jumping spiders in some locations in South Africa. This spiders are not a threat. Local pest control companies may be able to apply a general pesticide to the lawn to kill the spiders.
