- from Spiders
In an acre of a sunny meadow, you’ll find about 2 million spiders. For some, that’s a scary thought. But when you consider that each spider probably catches a bug a day, it’s pretty good news. Scientists believe that spiders eat more insects than all other animals combined.
People have long understood that we need spiders for survival. Today, we’re finding new life-giving 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.”
