What do white tailed spiders look like?
Where do white tailed spiders live?
White tailed spiders like to live where their favourite food is, other spiders. This means that they can be found out in the garden, in sheds, or even in our homes.
In Summer time, white tailed spiders come inside our homes to hunt their favourite food, the common black house spider. Inside, the white tailed spider will live in bedding, things left on the floor, and other little nooks and crannies.
What do white tailed spiders eat?
Other than their favourite black house spiders, white tailed spiders have also been known to eat daddy-long-legs and redback spiders.
White tailed spiders prefer to hunt at night.
White tailed spider bites
White tailed spiders are not poisonous and most bites happen inside our homes at night, especially in Summer & Autumn, and on arms or legs.
