First of all BLECH!!!!! I HATE spiders!
But no one can deny the beauty, hard work and delicacy that go into their webs (as long as those webs are outside and out of my way!).
I had to start “Immersion Therapy” last year when the orb weavers took over my yard. I was flinging and batting them away with a broom because they were all over my porch. But there was a very unique pattern in the web so I did some research. Turns out they are harmless and love Love LOVE mosquitos so I figured I should leave them alone and/or gently move them to a less populated area than my front door!
I still scream like a 10 y/o and do the ants-in-the-pants dance when I unexpectedly see one, but we’re getting to know each other a little better and I try to stay out of their way. As long as they stay out of mine!
I mean, seriously! How would YOU react if you walked into one of these!?!?
