4 Fascinating Facts about Spiders


4 Fascinating Facts about SpidersIn the United States, the vast majority of spiders don't pose a serious threat of physical harm to humans. In fact, many spider species can be helpful to have in the yard because they eat lots of nuisance insects. That said, there are certain spider species that you definitely don't want anywhere near you. In the Phoenix area, there are a lot of black widows around. There are also brown recluses. These species do pose a significant threat. If such spiders are on your property, you'll want to have an experienced pest control professional handle their removal. At Eco-Logic Management, our technicians specialize in spider removal in the greater Scottsdale area. While some spiders are indeed threatening, spiders are still interesting creatures. Here's a look at four interesting facts about spiders.

Biggest Spider in the World

The Goliath birdeater, which lives in northern South America, can reach a length of more than five inches and a weight greater than six ounces. By mass, they're the world's largest spiders. However, these spiders actually eat insects and worms more often than they eat birds.

So Many Spiders

There are more than 30,000 spider species known to science, and there are likely many more that have yet to be classified, or even seen. One estimate pegs the total global spider population at around 21 quadrillion.

Tarantulas that Shoot their Hair

Similar to how a porcupine uses its quills, there are some tarantulas that can fling their hairs to discourage their predators.

Spiders Working Together

While spiders are generally regarded as solitary creatures, there are some spider colonies that work together to build enormous communal cobwebs. These webs are used to trap prey, which is then shared among the populace.
