How many eyes do you have?

Two that I know of. :) Both work, more or less, though my right eye's muscles are a bit 'lazy' so I see double when I'm tired. I have to do eye exercises to keep from seeing double.

Are red spiders poisonous?

All spiders are poisonous; some venoms just have no or little discernible effect on humans. Color is not necessarily an indication of toxicity. Some spiders are red to blend in with their surroundings, some are red as a warning, and really are venomous, and some a red to mimic the truly venomous ones. In any case, color alone is not enough to determine how poisonous a spider is.

How do you make a spider trap out of paper?

Simple::: First you crumple the paper up and then open it back up so it looks less like paper. Then you fold all the sides in creating a dome. On one side only take your fingers and squeeze the paper up and in creating a door way so the whole appearance of the trap would look like a cave. Now you place your trap in a dry area where you have good access to it. lift it up and place ONE drop of water and right next to it, THREE granules of sugar and next to that ONE flake of oatmeal. It might take a day or so unless you have it in an area where the spiders roam a lot. However, when you know for sure that a spider has gone into the trap. Fold your fingers in with your thumb on top (Make a fist) and hammer down on the top of the spider cave. There you have caught your first spider with your trap. Although it may be a bit squished but you will feel better than it isn't roaming around in your house any longer.

Your welcome.

Do arachnids have male reproductive organs?

Yes, though none have a penis. In general sperm is produced in the genitalia at the underside of the abdomen, and the male arachnid transfers that to his pedipalps (in the case of spiders at least); pedipalps are the frontmost pair of appendages next to the mouthparts. Later, he inserts his pedipalps into the female's genitalia on her underside and mates this way.

Can a huntsman spider bite kill a cat?

Hi there,

The bite of Huntsman spiders is of low risk (only mildly toxic). My cat tends to bring in a lot of them as 'gifts' for me, both alive and dead ones and he has never had any problems with them. Just as a precaution I have asked my vet about it and she let me know that as they have a very low toxicity, the worst thing that can happen if they do happen to get bitten is they may become nauseous in the 24 hours following a bite. However in saying this, huntsman spiders are a non-aggressive group of spiders and even if they were to turn aggressive towards a cat, their skin is thick enough on most areas of their body which would prevent penetration of the Huntsman's fangs.

Hope this helps! I was concerned about this for a while until I asked my vet.

Are cannabis spider mites harmful to people?

Aside from being bitten, Spider mites are dangerous because they contain many pathogens. This can be fatal to someone who has a compromised immune system. Since these mites kill the plant, growers spray their plants with toxic miticides. Smoking these compounds are a danger to anyone's health.

Can baby Orange baboon spiders harm you?

All spiders have at least a small amount of poison, though this is miniscule in the infantory status. Even a baby black widow would be unlikely to cause serious harm to a child unless they were alergic. Baboon spiders are slightly less poisonous than black widows....but I wouldn't want them around to mature. Also when an egg sac opens there's a potential you could get swarmed...though most species tend not to eat for the first couple of days.
