Sorry to any spider lovers out there, but I killed this one because it looked a bit nasty....
Its long legs were waving around in the air all aggressive-like!
I save lots of spiders, promise!
I sprayed this with fly spray & it shrivled up a bit.... it's body was very round, like a pea... & it looked like it had little fangs
My cousin got botten at mine the other month & her whole leg was very swollen... was worried it was a spider bite.
This was a harvestman not a spider. Harvestmen don't have the obvious head and abdomen division like in spiders. They're completely harmless and most, to my knowledge, feed on detritus. They tend to wave their legs to feel their way around a bit.
Thank you so much!!
Now I feel bad for spraying it :(
Oh well, I'll know for next time.
Amazing knowledge of all things crawly.
Thank you RobW
