Daddy Long-legs

 

    

Description
 
The Daddy Long-legs or cellar spider is a spider of the family Pholcidae. Females have a body length of about 9 mm. Males are slightly smaller. Its legs are about 5 or 6 times the length of its body (reaching up to 7 cm of leg span in females). It commonly inhabits the ceilings of rooms, caves, garages or cellars.
 
Biology/Habitat
 
An urban legend states that they are the most venomous spiders in the world. Recent research, however, has shown that while the spider’s fangs are capable of penetrating human skin, the venom has a relatively weak effect on insects. Also in humans a daddy long legs spider bite generally produces only a mild burning feeling for a few seconds. Daddy Long-legs has the habit of shaking its web violently when disturbed. This is probably to blur the vision of a predator. They can easily catch and eat other small spiders, mosquitoes, and other insects. When food is scarce, they will prey on their own kind. Because they originally came from the tropics, these spiders do not seem to be aware of seasonal changes and breed at any time of the year.
 
Prevention Tips
 

• Use gloves when gardening; handling firewood, etc.
• Eliminate as much clutter as possible in storage areas and frequently dust and vacuum around windows, corners

  of rooms, and under furniture.
• Trim weeds around the building foundation and remove debris to discourage insects and spiders from living next

   to or around a structure.
• Seal openings and install screens and door sweeps to prevent spiders (as well as other unwanted pests) from

  moving indoors.
