Spider Behavior: How They Hunt, Feed, And Mate

Spiders are unique in a lot of ways. To make sure we are not throwing unnecessary information at you, here are some of the key details you should know about these pests. To start, all spiders have eight legs. All spiders do not, however, use webs to hunt for their prey. Some species hunt from the ground. When a spider catches an insect, it injects it with venom. This venom liquidates the creature's insides so that it can be sucked out.

As for mating, different spiders have different rituals. What you should know is that most common species produce hundreds of eggs at a time. This is part of the reason why spider infestations can grow so quickly out of hand.

Spider Problems: Why You Don't Want These Arachnids In Your Home

We are not going to lie to you. There is little to no chance that you will die of a spider bite in the United States. In fact, the last fatality recorded happened over 20 years ago.

Keeping this in mind, there are still some local species that pack a punch with their bites. The black widow has a neurological bite that causes moderate to severe pain and symptoms like restlessness and muscle aches/spasms. The brown recluse has a bite that is necrotic and can create ulcers. To avoid both of these dangerous spiders, take some time to spider-proof your home.
