Georgia Spiders: There are a couple common

Black Widow Spider,
Golden Silk Spider
Black & Yellow Garden Spider,
and the Brown Recluse Spider.
Black Widow Spiders

life threatening. They are black with a red
to orange mark on their abdomen, usually in the
shape of an hourglass. Their webs are
usually found in dark, undisturbed places.
are robust and agile
hunters with good eyesight. They live mostly
solitary lives and hunt alone. Some are
opportunistic wanderer hunters, pouncing upon
prey as they find it or chasing it over short
distances. Others lie in wait for passing prey,
often from or near the mouth of a burrow. Wolf
spiders will inject
freely if continually provoked.
The Golden Silk
primarily on flying insects, which they catch in
webs that may be greater than a meter in
diameter. They are most commonly found in
forests, along trails and at clearing edges.
The Black &

harassed, but apparently the venom does not
cause problems for humans.
garden spider can be found in a variety of
habitats, but prefers sunny areas among flowers
The last spider we would like to mention is the
Brown Recluse Spider.
Indoors, these spiders are often found in boxes,
among papers, in folds of clothing, and in
bedrooms, bathrooms, cellars, and attics. They
tend to prefer dry locations that remain
undisturbed, such as closets, attics, and
garages. Outdoors, the spiders are found under
rocks, logs, or loose bark in relatively dry
areas, such as under rock ledges. Recluse
spiders are not aggressive and bite only when
forced into intimate contact with human skin.
Bites often occur when spiders are trapped in
clothing or bedding.
