Frequently Asked Questions About Spiders

What are spiders?

Spiders belong to the class Arachnida and possess distinctive characteristics, such as eight legs and silk-spinning abilities. Unlike insects, they lack antennae and they have two main body segments: the cephalothorax and abdomen. Here's a brief guide to identifying the types of spiders found locally:

  • Wolf spider: These large and robust spiders are often found outdoors, hunting for prey. They are recognizable by their stout appearance and may carry egg sacs on their abdomens.
  • Brown recluse: Small to medium-sized, the brown recluse spider bears a violin-shaped mark on its cephalothorax. These spiders prefer dark and secluded areas and possess a potentially dangerous bite that can cause necrotic skin lesions.
  • Black widow: Shiny black in color, the black widow spider has a distinctive red hourglass-shaped mark on its abdomen. Often found in undisturbed areas like woodpiles and cluttered spaces, its venomous bite can cause severe symptoms.
  • Tarantula: Tarantulas are large and hairy spiders that give an intimidating impression. While they prefer warm climates and may dig burrows, their venom is generally not harmful to humans.
  • Common house spider: Small to medium-sized, these spiders come in various colors and markings. They often build their webs indoors, typically in corners and ceilings, and are not dangerous to humans.
  • Orb spider: The orb spider is known for its vibrant colors and for building intricate orb-shaped webs in gardens and outdoor spaces.
