Common Calgary Spiders
Black and Yellow Garden Spiders
Size: 5 to 28 mm long (body).
Colour: Yellow, black or golden.
Behaviour: Garden spiders often build webs in areas near sunny fields where they can stay hidden and protected from the wind. They keep clean, orderly webs and are not aggressive.
Size: 2 to 8 mm long (body).
Colour: Grey, light brown or pale yellow.
Behaviour: They can be short-bodied or long-bodied and are often found in dark, damp places like basements or cellars. They are sometimes referred to as daddy longlegs, as they have very long, thin legs. Cellar spiders construct loose and irregular webs, and hang upside down in them as they wait for their prey.
Common House Spiders
Size: 5 to 8 mm long (female body), 3.8 to 4.7 mm long (male body).
Colour: Brown, orange, black or grey in colour.
Behaviour: Most common house spiders are harmless. They may bite if they feel threatened but it’s very unlikely. They are normally found in basements or dark corners in closets or under furniture
Size: 6 to 20 mm long (body).
Colour: Sandy brown to burnt orange with pale spots in a cross shape on its large abdomen.
Behaviour: Cross spiders are very common and weave orbs instead of webs. They hang out face down on the web, waiting for their prey to fly into the web. You are likely to find them in gardens, meadows, hedgerows or next to buildings with exterior lighting. You may also find them in stairwells.
False Black Widow Spiders
Size: 10 to 15 mm long (female body), 3 to 6 mm long (male body).
Colour: Dark brownish with white spots on the body.
Behaviour: These spiders are often mistaken as black widows and are found among human populations worldwide. They are less harmful than a black widow, however their bites are still extremely painful. Only the female bites. They are normally found on fences, the bark of trees or in walls.
Size: Up to 35 mm long (body).
Colour: Brown, tan, black or grey with dark markings.
Behaviour: Wolf spiders get their name from the way they hunt. Unlike most spiders that build webs, wolf spiders violently hunt down their prey using their quick legs and strong eyesight. They live almost everywhere in the world and are very common in meadows, grasslands and wetlands - basically anywhere they can find food.
Zebra Jumping Spiders
Size: 5 to 19 mm long (female body), 5 to 6 mm (male body).
Colour: Black with white stripes.
Behaviour: These are very common spiders in North America. They don’t build webs. Instead they stalk their prey before pouncing on it. They eat insects or spiders smaller than them, usually feeding on mosquitoes too.
