If we lived where tarantula's were so common, we'd have to move or my husband would have a very long commute to see me (lol). Since we moved into a house, I'm kind of learning to tolerate spiders outside but once they cross my threshhold they are fair game for the bottom of my shoe or whatever I can get my hands on for smashing. I almost didn't make it through your article because of the pictures. The only thing I dislike about spring is that they seem to come out of hiding.

Thanks for this article, but I was sad that you didn't have a picture of "Mrs. Spider". lLast fall a large green spider took up residence in the crook of my refrigerator handle on the freezer side.

I decided to investigate her intentions and carefully avoided squashing her everytime I opened the freezer door of the refrigerator. Her intentions were apparently to make a home for her family. She spun a small web and eventually there was a papery case. I guess her babies were in there. The months of winter passed. Finally, Mrs. Spider was gone. I looked to see if she had fallen to the floor. Nothing could be found. All that was left was the papery case.

One day the papery case was also gone. No baby spiders were to be seen.

Perhaps I had inadvertently vacuumed them up. Perhaps the green beauties will come and visit me again. Or, Not.
