How Long do Spiders Live?

It 's an age old question and I'm sure you'd like an answer, well here goes:

Most spiders typically live for about a year, although up to five to six months of this may well be spent in the egg stage. 

However, there are some tarantulas that can live for as many as twenty years, and even one species has been known to survive over thirty years in captivity.

Then there are some tropical jumping spiders that only live for three months or less.
