Let’s talk about spiders

Every home has spiders. The most important thing is to realize that spiders aren’t dangerous if you don’t upset them. Some species are dangerous for humans; some are not. Those who are dangerous should be removed from your home or killed. The thing is, you don’t want to make a situation for the spider to bite you. If it’s a dangerous spider, then you could be bitten while you roll over to the other side of the bed and accidentally squish the spider. These cases are rare, but they exist nevertheless. So if you realize you have spiders in your home, it would be a good idea to remove them or kill them. But if you are too afraid of them which can be a pretty common thing, or you are afraid of being bitten, you should call the professionals to deal with the case. It’s for the best.

Their appearance

Everybody knows how a spider looks like. Eight legs and no wings. Spiders have two body regions. There are however all sorts of species and subspecies. Some spiders like damp environments or they like moisture. Others like dark and cold areas like basements. Some of them also like areas that are super dry like air vents or attics. Don’t be surprised if you find them in the corner of a sealing.  They like dark because that is how they hide from potential attackers and their pray. They usually eat insects that are weaker than them, but they can also eat other spiders. If they can subdue another spider, they will. So as you can see, they will eat anything that comes into their net, and that is weaker than them.

Spider reproduction

spiderAs for spiders, females produce the eggs in the form of an egg sac. From that sac, the little spiders will come out. Those little spiders or spiderlings will change several molt phases, and finally, they will become adults after that. The interesting thing is that males will try to charm the female. They have a series of courting. Spiders that jump, for example, will usually dance to attract the females attention. Something that most of other animal species will do, even humans. But let’s get serious. They will need to perform a dance ritual to attract a female. Some species of spiders will usually eat males if they become an easy prey. The Black Widow is a spider species that kill their males after the mating has ended. If the mail manages to escape, which is quite rare, he will live to see another day.

Some useful information

Believe it or not, we have more than 10000 species around the world. Spiders have three or four pairs of eyes depending on the species. They are also very dangerous if provoked. Some spiders are big like a human hand. Others are very small. And just because they are small doesn’t mean that they are not dangerous. As always, even the little ones are dangerous.
