Spiders are not insects. Spiders are members of a large category of animals called Arthropoda. Phylum Arthropoda includes the following groups:
It is often said that 'spiders can be found everywhere'. You may find a much greater variety of spiders if you know their ecological niche and make a special effort to look for them there, e.g. at neglected corners of houses, on tree trunks, under bridges, stilted buildings, fallen logs and stones or on the edges of streams, ponds and mangrove swamps. All spiders are predators and eat only live food. Spiders readily accept grasshoppers and other insects, or smaller spiders. The life span of spider varies from species to species.
