Q:

What is the life cycle of a spider?

A:

The lifecycle of a spider begins with the laying and hatching of the eggs, moves to the development of the spiders and ends with the spider's reproduction, according to Brandeis University. Spiders are known for their web building, and each spider species uses its webs to catch prey, although many spider species build their webs differently from one another.

The first stage in the life cycle of a spider is the laying and hatching stage where the spider lays its eggs that hatch after a few weeks. After hatching, the spiders walk around or climb up a tall object and allow themselves to fall away to a new area using the silk that they spin for webs. The second stage involves the development of the spiders where they undergo molts until they reach adulthood. In the third and final stage, the spiders reproduce so that new spiders are born and can repeat the life cycle all over again.
