Spiders are found all over the world except in extreme cold climates such as Antarctica. Some scientists say there are over 40,000 species in existence today ranging from small to very large and eating from insects to birds. The life cycle of a spider is usually not over 3 years however it is said that tarantulas in captivity have lived up to 25 years. Spiders in the North America can breed in the spring, summer, or fall. They typically appear more abundant in autumn because most of the web weavers have reached adulthood and with less foliage on the trees, their webs become more visible. Also, autumn is mating time for many of the hunting spiders like wolf spiders, and others. Because of this, the males will frequently enter homes and other businesses looking for mates. Spiders can enter the home or business in many different ways. They can walk in, be transported in through boxes and plants, enter through window sills, and spider babies can even be blown in by the wind.
Because there are so many close resemblances in various spider species, often it is necessary to view under a microscope in order to correctly identify.
