Found her hanging out in some bushes in Lehi Utah! Orb Weaver's are great spiders to have around since they are not dangerous to humans, and are great predators to other bugs!
A Cat-Faced Spider may try and bite you if handled, but normally is unable to puncture the skin. Another non threatening spider to humans. :)
Contrary to popular belief, a bite from a Black Widow Spider is very unlikely to kill human. Black Widows prefer dark, inactive corners to make their nests. This one was taken in Clearfield Utah.
This spider had made her home underneath a fall decoration basket by the front door.
Maybe one of the scariest looking spiders, the Woodlouse spider is nothing to be afraid. The big looking fangs are used to take care of pill bugs mostly. This guy was found in Centerville Utah.
This Group of Yellow Sac Spiders were found inside of a Mud Dauber nest treated in Hooper Utah! The Mud Daubers paralyze the spiders and shove them in to their nest for their future larvae to feed on them.
A female Black Widow Spider will often kill and eat her mate. This Widow was found in a crawl space in Fruit Heights Utah.
Did you know that Farmington Utah is ranked the #1 city in Utah to have the most Black Widows? Did I just make that number up? Yeah probably.
Black Widow in East Layton Utah.
A female Wolf Spider can lay around 100 eggs, and she then carries the babies on her back until they are mature enough to pay rent, or move out!
Snakes are great friends to have around. They do a great job in managing the rodent and other pest activity! This little guy was found in North Salt Lake Utah.
Can you find the friend poking is head out to say hi?
Here's another picture of the snake in the previous picture. He was much larger than anticipated! Found in Kaysville Utah
He finally popped his head out and I was able to get a quick picture of the yellow underside. They don't call them "Racers" for nothing. This guy was fast!
Bed Bugs found in an apartment complex in Park City Utah. Not the best roommates to have!
Using a little basket formed by it's legs, a single Dragonfly can eat hundreds of mosquitoes in just one day! They have also been know to eat other insects as well such as Moths, Butterflies, Bees ect.
Is it "Praying Mantis" because their front legs seem to be positioned a manner of prayer.... or is it "Preying Mantis" because they are such great predators? You decide! (Just kidding science already decided. It's "Praying.")
It had been awhile since I had found a Katydid. Most likely because they are most active during the night. They eat mostly leaves and grass. This one was spotted in Farmington Utah.
I wouldn't get to close to these guys if I were you. The Thread Waisted Wasps are very closely related to the Mud Daubers. They build their burrows in loose dirt in the ground, and drag immobilized prey down the hole!
A female Horse Fly will slice off a layer of skin and the lick the blood from a warm blooded animal. Or human!
