What Kind Of Spiders Live In Bellefonte, DE
There are many spiders found living throughout Delaware; spiders are characterized by having two body parts- the cephalothorax (fused head and thorax) and abdomen. Spiders also have eight legs, are wingless, and lack antennae. There are many different species of spiders found living across Delaware, but two of the most common species are the wolf spider and the common house spider.
The wolf spider is a large species and is typically dark brown in color and has lighter colored markings, their bodies and legs are usually covered in hair. Their body is stout and their legs are long, allowing them to move very quickly. Wolf spiders have great vision and instead of building webs to catch prey, they chase and hunt down their prey.
The common house spider is as you probably have already guessed, the most common species of spider to be found living inside homes. They are small in size and are usually light brown in color with darker chevron-like stripes on their legs. Common house spiders do create webs.
Both of the above spider species are considered to be nuisance spiders, but both have the potential to bite if they are being annoyed or directly handled.
