That one odd spider...it's web got messed up...and so rebuilt a new one today...engineering feats I just don't understand...I leave it alone, simply because I'm marveled by it's web spinning abilities...
Even though it's a bit inconvient for me...since web is attached to one of two chairs on deck.
But I figure if this little creature is that determined to build a master piece web, who am I to disturb it or destroy it...
Odd azz spider...I'm sure if I was it's size and fell into it's web, it would eat me, drain me of my blood, liquefy my insides...
But still...even knowing that...I'm in awe of the creature...and allow it to exist on me deck...
Spiders don't stand a good chance around where I stay, in that there are hundreds of spider killing Wasps flying around everywhere and looking for spiders to paralyze, capture and feed to young.
These Wasps fly around wreaking havoc on my nightmares, which are spiders.
Sorry, I just don't, not now, nor will I ever, like spiders, never.
(with the exception of 1-4 species that are small, and always stay in web and catch house hold insects).
Other than that, all spiders must go, as far as I'm concerned, and love the fact that now, finally at last, there's something more nightmarish to them than they are to me, and that is these odd Wasps that just seem to delight in tormenting the hell out of spiders...
In above pic, spider chews the heck out of stupid spider, that has preyed upon and terrified countless other insects, then Wasp comes along and makes chop suey out of it.
Best thing about it is spider is still alive, just paralyzed by Wasp venom.
So the spider has to sit there, paralyzed, unable to move, and watch as Wasp dismantles it's body, then fly's it away to nest, packs it in, lays eggs, and leaves.
Pay back, as far as I'm concerned, pay back for all the times spiders have horrified others, for all the times spiders have refused to show mercy to their own victims, for all the butterflies they've caught in webs and killed.
Pay back I tell you.
Bees, on the other hand, aren't really spider killers, regular bees don't specialize in hunting spiders.
Bees often become prey to spiders cause they don't specialize in fighting them.
