Hello, my name is Lauren Saldana. I am an Entomology major over at FSU and I specialize in Arachnids. So today we're going to be talking about how to identify the spiders of Florida and the first one that we'll be talking about is the Venusta Orchard Spider. They mostly hang out in orchards and then other vegetation. Their colors are a yellow green with stripes of brown running along their sides and if you'd not a really very big spider person; then not that cute and cuddly. And the next one that we'll be talking about is the Arrow-shaped Micrathena. They have a very small soft low florax with a dark red or a dark brown kind of color and they're found in like wooden areas and in gardens as well. And that's it for Florida. Thank you.
