We here at Spiders.us are dedicated to being your headquarters for everything "spider" in the United States and Canada. Our aim is to be accurate above all else, for there exists so much misinformation, contradictory information, and downright myth, superstition and urban legend that it is no wonder so many people are fearful of spiders.
