On a Silken Thread: Spider Fact and Fantasy
Love them or leave them, but at least learn to respect these top predators of the world of creepy crawlies. Spiders eat 400-800 million tons of insects per year and are thus a fine natural control on insect populations. Dr. Paula Cushing, Curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science since 1998, has been conducting research on spiders for more than 20 years. Since 1999, she has been surveying the spiders of Colorado through the Colorado Spider Survey.
Join Dr. Cushing to get answers to those pesky spider questions that have plagued you for years, learn just how dangerous the infamous black widow can be, find out why the brown recluse is not a concern here in the West, and impress your friends and influence people with all your newly-gained knowledge about these fascinating creatures.
