Although spiders have a poisonous attribute limited to the actual kind of specie, only a few are known to be dangerous to humans, such as the black widow and the brown recluse. A considerable majority of spiders are harmless and pose a vital objective. In terms of agriculture, spiders’ control other insect populations by feeding on them that could otherwise desecrate crops and reduce crop infestation risks.
Most species are predatory, either trapping flies and other insects in their webs or hunting them down. They can’t swallow their food, though—spiders inject their prey with digestive fluids and then scavenge out the molten debris.
However, not all spiders build webs, and every species produces silk. They use the robust and flexible protein fibre for many different purposes:to wrap up prey, to climb, to make nests, to tether themselves for safety in case of a fall, to create egg sacs, and more characteristics.
Spider species have eight eyes, while others have six. Regardless of their compound eyes, spiders still find it difficult to see very well (especially the jumping spider, which can see more colours than humans do. Using filters in their eye cells, the jumping spider can see the different red spectrum from the green range in terms of UV lights.
