IMPORTANT NOTICE: NEW SITE!
I have a real website now rather than a blog. Though I will keep this one open for a while, I will no longer keep this one up. My new site, "USA Spiders" is not fully completed but getting close. I made sure to get the Michigan page finished first. :o) Please use
USA Spiders in the future and if you find any problems with the site, please let me know so I can fix them.




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.

The BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER! - Rick Vetter, the worlds top expert on the Brown recluse has published a book on the infamous Brown recluse spider. Learn the truth behind the worlds most misunderstood spider. (BUY IT HERE!)

Rabbit Hutch Spider

Michigan Spiders - Rabbit Hutch Spider-6
Michigan Spiders - Rabbit Hutch Spider-5
Michigan Spiders - Rabbit Hutch Spider-2
Michigan Spiders - Rabbit Hutch Spider-1
Abdomen - Round like and Brown or Chestnut. Often with a cream colored stripe running along the sides and down the back.

Cephalothorax - Approximately two thirds the size of the abdomen. Usually black in color. Could be brown.

Size
- The females grow to around 7mm (Just over 1/4 inch) and the males are only 5mm (just under 1/4 inch). The male, shown in the pictures above is on a 3 oz dixie cup.

Bite Info - I have not been able to find any evidence of anyone ever being bitten by this species. Whether it is capable of penetrating human skin or not I cannot say. Since I have no insurance at this time, I was not about to test it. :o)

Other Notes - This Steotoda (Rabbit Hutch Spider) is also known as the False Widow because it is nearly the same size and has a similar body shape. When they are black, they are often confused with the Widow, except they do not have the tell-tale red hourglass marking.

Genus - Steatoda Bipunctata

  2. I think this might be the kind of spider I found on my back deck? I thought it was a black widow but it was all black very round almost like the picture at the top of this website with the spider on the web in the top corner. Is this a Rabbit Hutch Spider? I find them often in my back yard and I'll admitt it I kill them when I see them I have two small children and I am scared of them getting bit by whatever it is.
