How To Get Rid Of Spiders


Spiders are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs, and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids. Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica, and have become established in nearly every habitat.


As of 2008, approximately 40,000 spider species, and 109 families have been classified and in California the only spider capable of harm is the female black widow. Another important note is that the jaws of most spiders are too small to bite a human.
