Spiders are arachnids - they are easily identified as they have eight legs rather than the six legs that insects have.
Many people have an irrational fear of spiders (arachnophobia) this can range from showing slight anxiety to complete panic attacks. Thankfully however, most of the 650 species of spider found in the UK (there are 35,000 species of spider throughout the world) are completely harmless and they can be a very valuable pest control ally in and around our homes as they feed on flies and other insects that they catch in their webs.
Some spiders are capable of biting humans and their venom can cause swelling and allergic reaction. Occasionally more exotic species of spider are found in homes and businesses. Most commonly these may be escaped pets or those that have accidentally hitched a ride in goods transported from other countries such as boxes of bananas.
