Several species of spiders have been observed in Manchester. While they remain active throughout the year, spiders are more widely seen during autumn around the months of September and October. The heightened visibility may be due to a need to mate. Their bites are not considered deadly to humans, with only a few, like the false widow spider, capable of piercing human skin.
Common Spiders: Long bodied cellar spider, giant house spider
Biggest Spiders: Giant house spider, cardinal spider
