Spiders in Kansas City

Spiders are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs able to inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all orders of organisms identified. Fun fact: it is estimated that the world’s 25 million tons of spiders kill 400–800 million tons of prey per year. Spiders use a wide range of strategies to capture prey: trapping it in sticky webs, lassoing it with sticky bolas, mimicking the prey to avoid detection, or running it down. Most detect prey mainly by sensing vibrations, but the active hunters have acute vision and hunters of the genus Portia show signs of intelligence in their choice of tactics and ability to develop new ones. There are dozens of spider species in your Kansas City neighborhood, but these are some of the most common:

  1. Black Widows 
  2. Cellar Spiders 
  3. Daddy Longlegs/Harvestman’s
  4. Hobo Spiders
