- from Spiders
In an acre of a sunny meadow, you’ll find about 2 million spiders. Some might find that scary. But each spider probably catches a bug a day. So it’s really pretty good news. Scientists believe spiders eat more insects than all other animals combined.
People have long known that we need spiders. Today, we’re finding new uses for their deadly venom and superstrong silk. As an old English saying goes: “If you wish to live and thrive, let the spider run alive.”
