The Sapphire Coast is home to an amazing range of spiders that can be found just about everywhere… within our urban homes, our gardens, parks, reserves, forests and waterways. They have an important role in the eco-system, feeding on other insects and being food for other insects and larger predators.
Spiders belong to the class Arachnida, more commonly known as arachnids. They share the class with other species including scorpions, harvestmen, ticks and mites.
