A spider spins its intricate web in order to try and catch its prey, the silk like substance called proteinaceous spider silk, comes from the spinnerets of the spider. For over a million years spiders have been spinning their webs in which they will trap their unfortunate prey. Usually one spider will construct its own web for its own benefit but sometimes groups of them will come together to construct one massive web or several smaller ones joined together.

A spider’s web is like the internet web, clever, intricate and built by one or several people who specialise in web design in Gloucester, Cheltenham and all over the Country. They weave together and build specialist web sites that can literally tell you anything you want to know. More amazing than they appear at first glance a spider’s web is incredibly strong, pliable, quickly and efficiently made and beautiful in its artistic creativity.

There are several different types of spider that exist happily along side us in the United Kingdom, the common House Spider, the Garden Spider, the Orb-web Spider, the Daddy Long Legs and the False Widow Spider.  Every Spider has eight legs, breathes air, has chelicerae with fangs that can inject its prey with venom and spinnerets that excrete silk. Adapting to their habit and managing to thrive all around the World, apart from Antarctica, spiders are hardy and resilient creatures that will live and breed for a long time to come.
