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 Effects of Introducing Drugs to Spiders

This is a short documentary (1:51) about the scary effects the different drugs have when introduced to spiders.

However, I must make a couple points. They call the spider within this video a Wood Spider. It is in fact a simple Garden Orb Weaver.

The commentator unprofessionally uses a couple of medium level swear words. Please be advised if you are to let your children see this video.


  1. This was cute. I found your blog this morning and I'm stoked. I love spiders and we recently have noticed a tiny spider living on our ceiling in our bedroom. He's by the window during the day then he moves to the opposite side of the room at night. He's the first of his kind that he seen and I'm a big bug fan. Can you let me know your email so that I can send you a pic of him( we've named him Aragog)? I can't seem to find your email anywhere. Thanks so much.

    1. I was able to find your email after all but even better, I found a pic of a spider on your site that looks and sounds a lot like mine. It's called the running crab spider? He's always kinda reminded us of a crab cause a couple of his legs are pincher looking lol. I'll still send the pic if you are interested. If not, still a big thanks to you for this blog. Super helpful and interesting

  2. I am glad this site has been a help. You are always welcome to send pictures. The better the quality the more welcome you are. lol
