    I've been searching the net for common spiders in NY but cant find a website to find out what common spiders live in NY.
    I live in Long Island and live in a farm land area and see different spiders within my home and outside. Looking for information to ID these spiders and there are some neat ones I find living outdoors. Looking to maybe get me a small enclosure and catch me one of these critters and see how it goes before I decide and really get me some T's... any help would be appreciated , Thank you in advance......
    Great website!...Love the pics and info etc......from T's to scorps etc......

    I'm not sure how close Black Rock Forest is to Long Island, but maybe this site will help:


    If you're looking for a field guide, try Spiders of the Eastern United States by Howell and Jenkins. Many of the spiders in there will be in your area. Available through Amazon.com, last time I looked.
