It’s a common misconception that spiders are insects, when in fact, they are arachnids. Unlike insects, spiders do not have chewing mouth parts, wings, or antenna. In fact, they have eight legs (insects have six) and two body segments. Their hollow fangs allow them to inject venom to kill their prey.
The intricate webs created by spiders are due to the silk they produce – which they also use for catching their prey, swinging from one place to another, and covering their egg sacs.
How Long Do Spiders Live?
The life span of a spider in Northern New York and Vermont is usually one year. Most spiders pass the winter as eggs, mate in the spring, develop into full adults in the summer, and then die in the fall. However, some spiders do survive even a harsh Adirondack winter by finding cracks and crevices to hide in, and a type of antifreeze in their blood keeps them from freezing.
