Spiders are powerful predators, but the threats confronting them are numerous. A survey is presented
of the many different arthropods which waylay spiders in various ways. Some food-specialists among spiders feed
exclusively on spiders. Kleptoparasites are found among spiders as well as among Mecoptera, Diptera, Lepidoptera,
and Heteroptera. Predators are found within spiders’ own population (cannibalism), among other spider species
(araneophagy), and among different species of Heteroptera, Odonata, and Hymenoptera. Parasitoids are found
in the orders Hymenoptera and Diptera. The largest insect order, Coleoptera, comprises a few species among the
Carabidae which feed on spiders, but beetles are not represented among the kleptoparasites or parasitoids.
