The SPIDER GUIDE -- I am trying to expand my efforts to the other 49 states, and I can use your help. If you have found me or Michigan Spiders helpful, Please consider heading over to my new site, The Spider guide and adding it to your bookmarks, clicking the G+1 icon at the top left, or clicking on follow.... or whatever you are comfortable with. The more who even look around the site, the higher it will rise up the search engines for more people in other states to find it.

Please scroll down to reach the current Article for this page.

Spiders verified to be here in Michigan are listed on the left sidebar. On the right sidebar, are the spiders of which pictures have been sent in to me.

Michigan Spiders (Ebook version) is available for only $3.99 and at least at this time, is more complete than this site. It has more spiders and shows pictures for more species of spiders.
Please don't forget to give the book a review where you buy it.

The BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER! - Likely, this spider is the most misunderstood spider in the world. The facts most people know are often wrong. Rick Vetter is probably the top expert in the world when it comes to the Brown Recluse spider and he has a new book all about them. Don't listen to others misleading knowledge, but learn the truth for yourself with his new book. (BUY IT HERE!)

NOT IN MICHIGAN? Thats okay! If you have a spider you want identified, and you are not from Michigan, or even America, please send the picture to me through my new (still in progress) site's email. Visit the Spider Guide for information.
