Spiders Give More than Bites

Spider Silk used to weave this beautiful tapestry

This is a 11-by-4-foot tapestry made completely of spider silk!  It took 4 years to make it and the help of over 1 million spiders.  While these particular spiders were farmed and harvested in Madagascar, Texas has very similar orb spiders.  Yes, they do bite and they are very large.  Austin orb spiders can weave massive webs.  When threatened they will actually swing/jump their webs.  This action makes them seem fearsome and aggressive.  My advise is not to play with them too much.  They may not be poisonous, but that doesn’t stop the bite from hurting.

And if you are not planning on spending the next four years weaving a spider silk tapestry then I would suggest not housing the Texas Orb Spiders in your home.  Better to call your local Austin spider control company.
