Deadly Red spiders are monsters which can be found within the Varrock sewers, Edgeville dungeon, the eastern ruins in the wilderness, crawling near the Wilderness runite mine in level 45 wilderness, in the Karamja volcano, and inside Strange Barrels. Deadly red spiders can often be found near red spiders eggs. Deadly Red Spiders do not drop red spiders eggs.
Some players consider killing these to be a fairly decent combat training method, due to the XP rates one can attain. The drawback to killing red spiders for XP is that they drop nothing, yielding no profit for the player.
They were the second spider enemy types to be added to the game, just a month after launch. The spider's visual appearance is a red variant copy of the preceding level 2 Spider and level 8 Giant Spider.
