Daddy long legs do not have venom glands and do not make webs so cannot subdue prey. They live by eating decaying vegetable and animal matter. This debunks the oft told myth that they are poisonous but have fangs to short to bite humans. They will occasionally kill and eat live prey but this is not the mainstay of their diet.
