All About Spiders

According  to the New York City Department of Health, spiders are Arachnids, which makes them different from insects in several ways. Arachnids have four pairs of legs instead of three pairs, Arachnids don’t have wings, while insects often do. Insects have antennae, but spiders don’t. Arachnid bodies come in two segments while insects have bodies with three segments.

Spiders subdue their prey using venom, but rarely use it against humans unless they’re disturbed. Spiders also bite, particularly when they’re surprised or threatened. So if a spider gets into your shoes, clothing or bed sheets, you might get bitten. Some bites are painful while others can be itchy. Some spiders like the black widow or brown recluse spider can cause health threats.

Taking Care of Your Spider Problem
