Spiders fold, spin and weave their homes.  Some live in webs that are shaped as orbs (spiral wheel shapes) or funnels.  Not only does a web help the spider to catch and store its food, it also serves as protection from some predators.

Spider webs are fascinating objects that are both strong and stretchy.  According to a civil and environmental engineer at MIT, spider silk, pound-for-pound, is stronger than steel!

At right is a spider web photographed in the early morning covered with foggy dew drops.  The water droplets appear as crystal beads along the strands of the web.  Gently swaying in a slight breeze, the child beside me thought it looked like a chandelier made by nature.

Some arachnids "fold" their homes from grasses like the Leaf-curling Sac Spider.  

Read more about these fascinating creatures at the Spider page.

 

Did you know...   

that according to the US Library of Congress, spiders often have poor eyesight and weave their webs using only their sense of touch!

Yellow Sac Spider ???

Might the images below be of a Yellow Sac Spider, Cheiracanthium inclusum?  This species ranges in colour from yellowish-green, to tan or light brown.  Although native to Europe, they arrived in North America in storage containers in the 1940's.

I found that this species lives primarily in the Pacific Northwest US and Southwestern Canada.  This specimen was photographed in Northern Ontario.

The Yellow Sac Spider has 8 eyes that are arranged in 2 horizontal rows and are of similar size.  What are the large protusions on my specimen?  Eyes?

Why I thought this specimen might be a Yellow Sac Spider - it has made its nest in a typical Yellow Sac Spider location - in an area of a home where walls meet with ceilings.  It also has the characteristic first pair of legs being longer than the 4th pair.  Can you help identify this spider?

Are You Baffled 
by Bugs ?

Did you know...

That all insects are bugs, but not all bugs are insects!

 

 

Insects have 3 body parts:  a head, thorax and abdomen.  They also have six legs and two antennae.

Spiders and Scorpions have eight legs and are not considered insects!

 

According to some sources, the total number of insect species is somewhere between 15 and 30 million!

There are 900,000 known species in the world.

 

Insane About Insects ?

 

Did you know...

Scorpions can live for more than one year without eating!

 

Mosquitoes have 47 teeth, but only the female mosquitoe bites using it's proboscis.

Fireflies, sometimes called Lightningbugs, are not true bugs or flies.  They are beetles!

 

Every year, insects eat about one third of the world's food crops.

Only male crickets can chirp.  They will chirp faster in warm weather.  

 

Most insects hatch from eggs.

 

The average bed contains 2-6 million dust mites!

 

Are You An Enthusiastic
Entomologist ?

Did you know...

Every year, the average person eats several insects while sleeping.  

Insects breath through a complicated network of air tubes called tracheae that open along the sides of the insects body.

 

 

Nearly all insect growth involves metamorphosis.

 

The average housefly lives only two weeks!

 

 

A female ladybug lays about 1000 eggs in her lifetime.

Honeybees fly at a speed of 13-15 mph.

Even though spiders have eight eyes, they still can't see very well.

A cockroach can live up to 9 days without its head!
