This Is How Spiders Avoid Sticking to Their Own Webs

Spiders are among the most vilified of all household pests, and nearly every home has plenty of them. The most effective way to get rid of spiders is to schedule professional pest control services. In the meantime, feel free to let them spark your scientific curiosity. When you watch this video, you’ll find out exactly how spiders don’t become trapped in their own webs.

Some species of spiders can produce a special coating that’s thought to help their legs repel the stickiness of the threads. Orb spiders are capable of making non-adhesive threads. This lets them build pathways through the web that are safe for the spider to walk on. The majority of spider species avoid sticking to their webs simply by being cautious. They walk carefully, letting just the hairs on their legs touch the web.

Just one egg sac can contain hundreds of tiny baby spiders. Don’t let spiders take over your home—call Payne Pest Management today at (877) 365-5629 for prompt and professional pest control services in Orange County.
