There are over 35,000 known spider species worldwide, but only a handful are considered to be dangerous and 27 species are known to cause human fatalities. Spiders are attracted to warm, dark small spaces, like wall cracks, corners, air vents and in the washroom. However, some species prefer to stay closer to the outdoors, weaving their webs in your garden or near your outside lighting.
Although most common spiders at home are not really harmful, but their fear is called Arachnophobia and some of these can give a deadly bite. Mostly they are nuisance because of their webbing. Spiders can be easily spotted if we:
- Look for spider webs
- Some spider species live in crevices.
- Some species of spiders are attracted to moist environments.
- Other species can be found in closets and storage boxes.
- Spiders feed on other insects and prey on ants, flies, woodlice and other spiders, so where there is a plentiful supply of other insects, spiders will wait to find their next meal.
- Spider eggs are laid into a silken sac, on average about 100 eggs in each sac, which may be fixed to a surface, hidden in the web or carried by the female. Signs of the sacs fixed indoors indicate that soon there will be more spiders around.
