Who likes spiders?

I thought spiders were solitary creatures. I discovered this in my recycle bin a couple weeks ago. I have been watching them, expecting to find that one had killed the other. Not yet....

When I opened it up, they both scurried into the web:


I coaxed them out, so I could get pics of each:

They look different...is one male, and the other female?

We get these in the garage every spring. They would rather fight than flight.

I like spiders, I don't go in search of them but I won't hurt them. Actually that is a lie of sort....a few years ago I had an outbreak of bottle flies in one of the fish filters and since I could not use an insecticide I brought spiders in from the patio and released them above and near the tank. In a few weeks the problem was resolved! So I then took them back to the patio.

The sunspiders look frightening!

One indeed does appear to be female as it seems she is carrying an egg sack on her bum in the last photo.

Always liked spiders.


As an "exterminator" they meant money, and gas for my cabin cruiser.

It depends upon how they're cooked.

I don't like spiders, But I do find them fascinating. Daddy long legs don't bother me though as they are slow and can't bite through your dead skin layer. The spiders that just hang around in their web aren't to much of a bother. It's those wolf type spiders that are wondering around (at 100MPH) that give me the willies.

CJ7365. We used to get those huge huntsman spiders in Germany. Those things sure are hella scary. It's a wonder how with eight very long legs flailing about that they can move so bloody fast.
