Do All Spiders Make Webs?

No! Not all spiders make webs. Some spiders use webs to catch food, but that’s not how all arachnids find their next meal. Some spiders are hunters and don’t use a web to catch food. Often times, these spiders burrow under the ground or other hidden spaces. For example, wolf spiders are ground dwellers and normally nest in burrows. They eat big prey like crickets, roaches, beetles, and mealworms that wouldn’t make their way to a web, anyways.
