Spiders are expert hunters that feed on moths, flies, mosquitoes, and other insects. Some species capture and disable their prey, wrapping it tightly in silken web. Others use fangs to inject venom and paralyse their prey. Some spiders are timid, while others will readily bite when threatened.
Not all spiders are dangerous to humans, and many are useful for insect control. While most spiders are harmless, you should always seek medical attention for all spider bites.
