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!)

Submitted Pics - Crab Spiders

The following, are pictures of Crab Spiders that have been submitted to me by others living in Michigan. In doing this, I am able to show pictures of spiders in Michigan that I myself have not seen, as well as more pics of those I have posted officially as being in Michigan.

Please understand that the Crab Spiders in this section may or may not be indigenous to Michigan. I would hope that others would be honest and actually send pics of the Crab Spiders they have actually found in Michigan, but I cannot make any guarantees.

I would also like to thank all of those listed below for their kindness in sending me these pics. If by any chance, you have sent me one of the following pics and you do not wish me to use it, or if any information is wrong, please email me and let me know.

  1. I live 15 miles west of Kalamazoo and found two in my house today. One on my kitchen ceiling and other in a large window in my living room. They are unlike any other spider I have encountered.

      I found one on a rose, head to head with a honey bee. I took several photos with my tracphone. I'm a novice photographer. It was breezy and I won't know the quality of the shot. The bee was dead. I touched it's wing and no reaction. When I did that the spider reached out with two more legs to hold the bee. Years ago when up at our cabin in the area I saw both a white and a lime green spider exactly the same as this. I've been watching for the green but no luck. Nature is wonderful! Joyce

  6. Indeed, they live in Michigan. I have seen them, unfortunately, on more than one occasion. I live in Bay City, MI. They are of the genus Thomisidae and are not known to be harmful to human beings.
