In fact, there are some very interesting spider facts we have to share with you. At Pest Control South Side we offer professional pest control service for spiders in both residential and commercial properties. If you have a spider problem, you can trust our team to get it sorted for you! Recently, our friends over at Pesky Possum Bird & Pest Control compiled a list of 5 of the most interesting spider facts. We are sharing it with you here on our site! Let’s get started!

      1. Some Spiders Can Jump 50x Their Length!

      Have you heard of the jumping spider? Although it may sounds like something from your nightmares, the jumping spider is not only real, but it can also jump up to 50 times its own length! The green jumping spider is found throughout eastern Australia. The females measures up to 18 mm while the male is about 12 mm in body length.

      2. Spiders Are Incredibly Common

      Spiders are common all over the world, but you may not know exactly how common they are. A recent study of an undisturbed field of grass in Sussex found about 5.5 million spiders 10000 square meters. That’s a lot of spiders!

      3. Not All Spiders Build Webs

      It is a common misconception that all types of spiders are able to build webs and actively do so. In fact, many different types of spiders don’t use webs to catch prey. For example, daddy-long-legs spiders do not use web making to catch their prey.

      4. Some Spiders Eat Their Own Webs

      It may sound funny or strange at first, however when you really think about it, it starts to make sense. Imagine having made a whole web network and needing to move it due to predators or a storm. It would be pretty wasteful to just abandon it right? That’s why some spiders take to eating their web so they can ingest and recycle the amino acids in their web/

      5. Spiders Have Unique Eyesight

      As humans, we dont tend to think too much about the different elements of the ligh spectrum like UVA and UVB light as we simply cannot see it. However, spiders can! Some studies have shown that spiders are able to see UVA and UVB light, as well as other spectrums of light that we cannot see.
