I love her.
I have only ever accepted one (large) spider in my entire life. She lived on our sliding glass. At first she made her web across the doorway as it was easier for her, but after we walked into it by accident she quickly spun a web to the side that allowed our heads to pass by web-free and continued to do so for the rest of her life. She was so incredibly self aware and courteous. She was an Orb Weaver spider, and we affectionately called her Sigourney until she passed away that winter 💜
She’s a wolf spider not a wood spider. Wood slides are Australian usually. N they are brown. Janet isn’t venomous and are usually shy and rare to bite unless provoked. They don’t have webs and run down their prey. Janet will be keeping your porch bug free and won’t bother you much. Their bite is comparable to a bee or wasp sting.
Holy. Crap. Also I always catch and release also. I’m scared to put them on my patio (I live in an apartment studio) so I catch them and release them in the stairwell - but I go two floors down. Sorry peeps on the 5th floor 😳😬 🕷 ❤️
Janet might need to pay rent. She looks like she takes up a lot of space.
The river was deep but I swam it (Janet) The future is ours, so let's plan it (Janet) I just- Please don't tell me to can it! (Janet) I've one thing to say, and that's Dammit Janet, I love you
my son's tarantula died this week. I've never been so sad yet relieved since I got my first shitty job after college.
When I lived on a rural island in Washington state, my house often had large hairy spiders. I refused to kill them so I developed a method where I would keep a plastic container, labeled it: "Spider Escort Service" 🕸️ and out they went
If you don’t kill the spider it goes home and tells its friends and family not to bite you . a spider told me that . Love them set them free !
@jesusandmanners Look, she puts her critters back outside too! ❤️ 🙌🏼👍🏼
