What kind of habitats does a orb-weaver prefer?

Orb-weaver spiders live outdoors in humid climates which makes Florida an ideal home for them. It’s difficult to walk through the woods in Florida without encountering at least one, if not many orb-weaver spiders. They build their webs in trees and bushes and lie in wait for their prey to come along. The food of choice for orb-weavers is whatever unlucky bug happens into their web. Most commonly found in the summer months, orb-weavers can build webs that are up to six feet tall.

What damage does a orb-weaver cause?

Orb-weaver spiders may be intimidating to look at, but their bite doesn’t match their appearance. While they use their venom to kill their prey, it simply is not toxic enough to have an effect on human or animals. The sting of one of these spiders feels something like a bee sting and does not have lasting symptoms for human beings. Orb-weaver spiders are quite docile creatures and are more likely to run from conflict than aggressively attack a person or animal.
