Spiders

Time to send those spiders packing!

Spiders are perhaps the most feared pest. Some species are large and dangerous, such as the funnel-web spider, while others are smaller and shiny, such as the red back. Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders, affects many Australians and can be quite a debilitating problem.

Spiders are arachnids, not insects. Arachnids include spiders,  scorpions, harvestmen, ticks, and mites. Spiders are the only arachnids  that have special glands in their abdomen which produce silk. Spider bodies have two parts: the cephalothorax (combining of head and thorax)  and the abdomen.

There are many different  kinds of spiders. All spiders have eight legs, and most have eight  eyes. Spiders do not have ears; instead they feel the sound vibrations  with tiny hairs on their legs. Spiders also breathe.

Blood fills up all the empty space in a spider’s body and helps it to  keep its legs stiff so it can walk. As spiders grow, they moult. That  means they shed their old skin and grow a new one. They moult many times  before they become adults. Many spiders live for only one year, but  some can live much longer.
