Some spiders have can see better than others. Ironically, for both the fly and the fishing spider, the attributes that make support possible also inhibit locomotion.

So the number of mosquitoes showing response is a matter of observation. They don't form webs, but sit and wait for insects to come to the plant. To end this page, perhaps the most astounding example is the Central American spider Castianeira rica. Which according to creationists is possible. The next and almost last step is very simple.

This enables the complex movements that power the arthropod's many jointed appendages. This is the equivalent of an average human adult lifting a fully grown African elephant!

Others spend the winter as pupae. (This is a time when insects change from one form to another.) Other insects die after laying eggs in the fall. Spiders are interesting creatures in the Animal kingdom with about 40,000 recorded species. Bedbugs are on the rebound and they’ve got you in their sites! In fact, as I write this, there is a spider on the wall over my desk only slightly smaller than a 4X4.
