When we’re talking bugs, spiders are the top dogs. They’re the best and the baddest; they lure critters into their webs or stalk them as prey. There’s nothing that can beat a spider… except possibly another spider. Oh, and also wasps.
Wasps actually are insane spider hunters. They will stalk and kill spiders, then feed them to their kids. They do it by stalking a spider, paralyzing it, then filling it with wasp eggs. After the eggs hatch, they eat the spider as their first meal. Spider’s top dog, or so you thought. And actually, spiders are hunted by a lot of different critters, just not tons of insects.
Creatures that are considered “insectivores” mostly eat insects and spiders. A couple of critters that are categorized as insectivores include bats, lizards, frogs, rats, and birds. These guys completely rule over spiders, killing them daily to devour as dinner. So, in reality, spiders are nowhere near the top of the food chain. This does not make their presence any less loathed in your home. Contact Knoxville Bulwark Exterminating today for your free spider control quote.
Roaches will eat just about everything. Somethings that even includes spiders that would 50 prey on roaches. The Huffington Post featured an article that has a video showing how a roach turned the tables on a menacing spider.
