Spiders Coat Webs With Toxic Chemicals for Self-Defense

A tasty spider and its bundle of prey might make an excellent treat for a bunch of marauding ants. So to protect their homes, and themselves, golden orb weavers (Nephila antipodiana) use chemical warfare.

Researchers had long wondered how this species of orb spider — typically found in the ant-rich tropical forests of Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines — manage to avoid becoming dinner.

They found that the spiders coat their webs in a chemical called 2-pyrrolidinone, which acts as a deterrent to many insect species, including ants, moths and caterpillars. The findings appear Nov. 23 in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Weaver ant workers form chains of their own bodies, allowing them to cross wide gaps and pull leaves together during nest construction.
