    The Spiders get to stay in my home as long as they do their work… They work as 24-Hour Pest-Control Agents and they don’t take Day-off(s) or go on holidays…

    Just think Holly—what if one is a female and she consumes the male after mating—wouldn’t that be interesting to watch???

    They could be both girls and would also fight to the death but even if one is a boy and the other is a girl chances of both spiders staying alive is about 15% (since the female will eat the male though they do escape sometimes or this type of spider don’t eat their males).
    I’m a little dissappointed that we didn’t get to see Joan freak out.

    Reminds me of my nephew when he was a boy. He actually wanted to catch a snake, thinking it could be kept as a pet, and follow him around the house.

    Birth or death, it’s still part of nature and fascinating.

    Not only that, but they are chemically free of hazardous poisons most people put out to kill other pests.

    A pest exterminator was soliciting work door to door. He rang our bell, claiming our neighborhood was infested with spiders. When he offered to kill them.(chemically and for a fee, of course)
    My answer was
    “Oh right. First you kill all my spiders, then in a few weeks, come back to kill the other bugs which proliferate because there are no spiders to keep them under control.”

    One summer, there was a spider making her home behind our mailbox. She’d create a huge web every night, reaching three feet from the porch rail to the ornamental cedar and of course including the mail box. Every day the wind would ruin her work, and every night she’d rebuild it. Then she go ambitious and tried to catch us by stringing a 14-foot web from the mailbox and porch rail all the way up to the corner of the eaves trough.

    Not long after that, she proved her female status when hundreds of tiny spiders rappelled from the porch rail to the ground. Alix would have loved it!

    All that means is that more insects they would eat would bother you instead. They spin a web they stay in it.
