What draws spiders to bananas and grapes—and what should consumers and produce workers who find the potentially deadly critters in their fruit do? At the top of the body there is one pair of eyes that are pointed sideways. Having killed their prey they will dismember it with their powerful jaws and fly it back to the nest a bit at a time. For water, they should each get about 3mL a day. Black widow spiders prefer dark undisturbed areas, such as woodpiles, rubble piles, bales of hay, water meter boxes, under eaves, and fences.

Journal of Medical Entomology 41: 593-597. One of the more pertinent causes listed here is that the expression of Lyme disease can give the classic bulls-eye patterning characteristic of brown recluse bite. All beetles have hard forewings, called elytra, which do not do much help in flying but cover the membranous hind wings and protect the abdomen. Note: Female horse flies feed on the blood of livestock, humans, and other large mammals and in doing so give a painful bite.

Many insects survive harsh conditions by burrowing and remaining inactive, and some can even survive for years after being completely dried out—they revive when placed in water! Here's some info from Everyday Mysteries: "Many people believe that spiders have special oils that repel the stickiness of their threads. There are spiders that float ON the water, such as fishing spiders, those that live UNDER the water, such as diving bell spiders, and even spiders that live as parasites on the webs of other spiders.

The noise of the rattle was believed to summon spirits to a ritual. There is one exception to #2: If you use a pesticide spray on the surface of a crack that a spider goes in and out of, (such as between a baseboard and the carpet, or a piece of wood trim around a window), the spider's body will likely contact the spray and the pesticide could be effective. Install door sweeps under all exterior doors.

Most spiders have such poor vision that they will not even notice a dead insect. These large aquatic mammals, which are also called sea cows, are curious and not particularly agile, so their existence is most threatened by human-related causes, such as collisions with boats and propellers, and the destruction of their habitat.
