Lovely article. I did not know the grass spider eats fleas. That is good information to have.

Nice article. While I loathe spiders in general, I have come to accept a few (like the orb weaver) into my garden. Unfortunately I've also had the black widow and the brown recluse spiders so I remain wary.

What a cool article! I did see a mother spider with babies on her back about three years ago--it was incredible! I had to kneel down to see her better, even though it felt uncomfortably close to this big spider, I just had to get a better look. It was amazing to see for myself what you normally only see on a nature show.

I have the orb spider come most summers in the same area. I leave him alone--but keep my distance. I researched this spider and they can give a pretty good sting. Their web is pretty however.
