Facts about Spiders
The life spent of the black widow is 1to 3 years in the wild. The size of the black widow is 1.5 in., (38mm) long, and 0.25 in (6.4mm) in diameter. The black widow weighs about 0.35 ounces(1 gram). The black widow is considered the most venomous spider in North America. The Black Widow
The Brown Recluse Spider The brown recluse length is 1/4 to 3/4 in (6.5 to 19mm). The color of the brown recluse is golden brown with dark brown or black fiddle shape on his head. It eats insects.It is found in the United States. You know how most spider’s have eight eyes but the brown recluse has six eyes. It’s lives in small dark places.
The Wolf Spider The Wolf spiders length is 1/5 in to 3in (1 to 8 cm). The color of the wolf spider is dark brown. The wolf spiders eat insects and other spiders. They are found all over the world. There are more than 2,000 different kinds of wolf spiders in the world. The wolf spider hunts it’s prey by running after it.
The banded garden spider The most largest and most striking of the orb weaving spiders found in Colorado is the banded garden spider. It is found in the late summer and the early fall among the shrubbery and in the gardens where they make a highly symmetrical orb web. Females are generally silvery, with a dark and yellow striping. Males are rarely observed and are much smaller than the females. The banded garden spider is harmless.
The ground spider The ground spiders, or as their common name implies, are most often found under some rocks or logs where they build silken retreats and emerge only to hunt. Some of the species wander indoors when the weather turns cold. Ground spiders are so harmless to humans.
Funnel web spider Funnel web spiders, or grass spiders, are the most common spiders found in homes, particularly during late summer and early fall. They can produce dens of mats and of silk in some areas such as shrubs, in thick grass, or in corners of buildings. In a central retreat (the base of the funnel) is usually used by the spider which moves rapidly onto it’s web when the prey enters onto it. Javier Gomez:
Tarantulas Tarantulas are found in the southeastern and the southwestern of Colorado. Tarantulas are among the longest lived of all of the spiders. Populations of the tarantulas tend to be localized, where they burrow into the soil and feed at night. They rarely enter homes and are essentially harmless. They may produce a pinching bite if it is handled. Tarantulas defend themselves by flinging hairs from the abdomen which can be irritating to the touch.
The Hobo spider A European species of the funnel web spider, known as the “hobo spider,” is slowly spreading across western North America and was also recently found in Colorado. Some of the reports indicate that bites of this spider may also produce wounds similar to that of the brown recluse. Hobo spiders are closely related to other species, known as European house spiders, that are not poisonous.
