Spiders (Araneae) are among the most diverse and widespread animals on Earth. Among the thousands of arachnid species, there are some that live in forests, deserts, underground and underwater. There is also great variation in spider shape, size, coloration, reproduction methods and diet. While most spiders don't present direct danger to humans, some possess venom strong enough to incapacitate or even kill a person. Even non-fatal bites of some species can cause permanent organ damage or the loss of a limb. While spiders can sometimes be beneficial creatures, by killing flies and other air-borne pests, a spider infestation is just as unpleasant as an invasion by any other pest.
