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.

Michigan Spiders the Printed Version of the Book

Michigan Spiders, the printed version of the book is available!

It took a couple of extra years to get this book right for printing. You would be surprised how good clear pictures on your computer will turn out so dark once they are printed. Working 50 plus hours a week at a job that will pay the bills, it didnt leave much time to be working on the book much less the site.

But this year I have pushed to get it done. I have added updated pictures as well as new spiders to the book.

If you happen to be camping, fishing, hunting, or just at a park when you see a spider and you want to know what it is? Just keep the book with you and you can look it up.

A neat little feature I added to the printed version of the book is a quick index at the back of the book. It has smaller versions of the pictures of the spiders all close together with the name of the spider below them. This will make it easy to just scan through the pictures and find the spider that looks like the one you have found.

This is not like your fiction books that you read once and toss aside to never look at again. Michigan Spiders (the Printed Book) will be a guide you can turn to over and over for years to come. For the price of $22.99, you can have the best guide to the common spiders you will find in Michigan at your fingertips.

Buy the book at Amazon now! Have the spiders of Michigan in your hands today!
