How can I move a spider from inside a home to outside without hurting it?
Alexandria Henderson
55:04
Are these (funnel weaver spiders) the ones that are often found in grass? I seem to see them often as I am pulling weeds. I often have wondered do I need to worry about getting bit by it as I am in their space pulling weeds.
Alexandria Henderson
57:02
Great info- thank you! :)
Martha Fisk
57:14
They are really fun to look for on hikes.
wil kountis
57:36
Spiders are really active at building webs in the corners of the inside and outside of my window frames, and when I open my windows or move curtains, I unintentionally damage their webs. How can I deter them from building webs around my window corners?
Kay Allen
59:08
On misty rain mornings, I see dozens of funnel spider webs scattered in the woods near my house.
Nita Dukes
59:13
Is there a best time of the day to mow to keeping from killing spiders?
Portia McCracken
59:28
Are window spiders cobweb spiders?
Cristen Clonts
01:03:59
Are pholcidae considered cobweb spiders? (Oh! I just saw my first dewdrop spider a couple weeks ago!)
Portia McCracken
01:07:25
Had one on my car side mirror for a few weeks this summer. Thought she was a bit of debris at first.
Martha Fisk
01:07:56
How was it discovered that they do not have venom?
Martha Fisk
01:09:16
Thanks! I didn’t know about these.
Gigi Davidson
01:11:54
I have two green lynx with beautiful egg sacs on fig leaves. Where can I move them if the leaves fall off before they hatch out?

Susan Ramsey

Martha Fisk

Clayton Rodgers
01:27:03
if a mother wolf spider looses her egg sac, will she retrieve it later?
Portia McCracken
01:27:09
Which spiders have recently been discovered to produce "milk" for their babies?
Martha Fisk
01:27:16
Sometimes you see the egg sac being carried in the front, too. Is this something that helps you tell species apart?
Allison Schwarz Weakley
01:27:21
Is this an adaptation to disperse the babies?
Catherine Deininger
01:27:26
I often find what are wolf spiders in my pool with their babies on their back. Why are they getting in the water?

Portia McCracken
01:35:53
Which spiders consume their webs and reweave them each day?
Linda Sims
01:36:33
I have seen Fishing Spiders in my tadpole "nurseries". I see fewer tadpoles after their visits.
Portia McCracken
01:37:25
That looks like my window spider!
Martha Fisk
01:43:08
Is this a characteristic of most spider males and female spiders (difference in abdomen size)?
Maggie Frantz
01:44:19
do all the cobwebs in my home mean there’s a spider nearby or is it a symptom of my lack of cleaning?
Catherine Deininger
01:47:11
Generally at the end of the summer I notice a time when all of sudden there are lots of webs in the grass every morning. Is there a particular spider species that is creating these webs?
Martha Fisk
01:47:14
I like this distinction for certain types of spiders (as opposed to calling them dangerous or bad).
Jeff Hall
01:47:47
Agreed Martha!
Allison Schwarz Weakley
01:49:11
I've often found paralyzed black widows (and other spiders) in my carport when mud daubers are active.

01:57:08
No they are not important pollinators...a few ambush spiders that hang out on flowers may accidentally pollinate a flower but not important

Tommy Glosson
02:03:01
if you want to study spiders and go to college how do you start
Allison Schwarz Weakley
02:03:02
The NC Biodiversity Project has a page for Arachnids. There is a checklist for common NC spiders, info on ID guides, summaries and photos of NC spiders, and you can submit records as a citizen scientist. https://auth1.dpr.ncparks.gov/arachnid/index.php
Martha Fisk
02:03:04
Peanut butter jars with holes drilled in the lid make great spider containers for catch, observation, and release.

I keep glass jars and small pieces of cardboard in several rooms to use to take spiders outside.
Christine Cabot
02:06:55
Recently read an article about "embodied cognition" in spiders - neural pathways built into legs so that some basic behaviors do not need to involve the brain.
Minda Daughtry
02:07:06
What is the component that makes the spider web sticky? Is it the same ingredient for all spiders?
Sylvia Stanat

I have a folk legend to share: If a "writing" spider writes your name is its web, you are a goner! Bad omen!
Cristen Clonts
