Spiders are predators feed primarily on insects. Depending on the species, some spiders rely on their webs to capture their prey, while other actively hunt their prey.

Medical Importance:

Spider bites usually result only with great provocation such as squeezing or handling. Many spiders cannot penetrate skin and the bite of those that can, usually result in no more than slight swelling. The primary exceptions are black widow and brown recluse spiders.
