A study has shown that spiders actually eat what is equivalent to 440 million and 880 million tons every year collectively, which is just about as much as all humans collectively weigh. The mass of humans across the glove comes out to approximately only 287 million tonnes. 

The study that proves that was conducted by professors Martin Nyffeler & Klaus Birkhofer, identifying 45,000 species of spiders existing on earth. 

However, spiders usually only eat insects, but bigger spiders might venture onto larger living creatures.
