Likewise, is Spider poop toxic? There is also research that found pathogenic bacteria in the feces or droppings of flies (Kobayashi et al. 1999). However, little research has been done characterizing the microbiological inhabitants of spiders and their droppings. Overall, there were no bacteria identifiable in the spider fecal material.

Considering this, do spiders poo?

Yes, spiders poop. Poop is the waste remaining from digested food. Spiders expel it from the anus just like you do, as part of their digestive process. Silk is made with proteins in the silk glands and is excreted through the spinnerets.

Most temperate zone spiders have enough “antifreeze” in their bodies that they won’t freeze at any temperature down to -5° C.; some can get colder.

Can you eat spider webs?

Spider webs are architectural marvels. Their silks are similar in tensile strength to alloy steel. Their adhesive properties adjust to movements of prey ensnared in them. Yet they are, for many of the spiders that weave them, edible.
