Spiders have eight joined legs and their bodies are divided into two sections: cephalothorax and abdomen. Although the general appearance of arachnids varies, the basic structure remains the same.
There are many species of spiders, but only a few in Australia can cause very serious injury or even death. These include the Sydney funnel web, red backs and the white tip, just to name a few. Not all spiders are dangerous or even considered pests. Some arachnids that construct webs in the backyard, windows and above door entries are actually a great way to get rid of flies, mosquitoes and other insects that get caught in their web.
