“Everything that the spider needs to make a spider web is not found in the housefly it’s right there in the spider! Whatever you need to make an impact is in you! Discover yourself and make a difference!” Israelmore Ayivor

You happened to see a spider!

What is your reaction?

Your reaction is instant since there is no time to think.

Is it not a fact that you just feel like killing the same since you are scared?

My friend, don’t crush these most helpful creatures, the moment you see them.

Don’t be in a hurry.

Think for a second

These creatures unique, beautiful and are human friendly.

They clear your residence/garden by eating disease-causing pests free of cost!

The majority of the spiders could save your life.

Spiders fit into the larger scheme of the eco system.

There are more than 43,000 different species of spiders and less than 30 can cause human deaths. (less than 1%)  source-Britannica.com

Jumping spider vs Humans-power games( who is stronger?)

  • A jumping spider can jump as much as 50 times its length. The highest leap recorded by a human being is 12 feet. (Human is supposed to leap 300 feet)
  • Humans lack spider-sense because of lack of the sensitive hairs that cover the body of the spiders.
  • Spider produces silk (web) which we can’t. (spider silk can reach tensile strength of 1.3 Gpa. The tensile strength of steel is a little higher 1.6 Gpa

Spider vs Humans-who is more dangerous?

“Spiders are anti-social, keep pests under control, and mostly mind their own business, but they somehow summon fear in humans who are far more dangerous, deceitful and have hurt more people. Of the two I’m more suspicious about the latter” Donna Lynn Hope

Trivia

  • Jumping spiders really jump.
  • They don’t hunt by creating webs. They do produce silk acting like a dragline.
  • They have a great vision. They have 4 pairs of eyes.
  • They have no ears but they hear well thanks to their extraordinary sensory hairs.
  • Scientists say they sing & dance
  • Their favourite food is Malaria causing mosquitoes.
  • The life span is one year

    I’ve got two baby wolf spiders in the house right now, brought in with the fire wood…but don’t tell my boyfriend or my son. The typical house spider, cellar spider and another one I’m not real sure of have also taken up residence.

    It actually depends on the spider. Most of the time, they are free to live where ever they are. If they are poisonous though, and they don’t stay outside. I’ll put them outside, but if they come back in…
