Totally love to hear that other people remove these guys back to the outdoors as I do. I really hate it when people just kill out of fear without thinking of an alternative. Pretty cool!
My boyfriend has rules for spiders:
1. Stay in the corner
2. No dangling
They get left alone as long as they don't break those rules. This is only if they're indoors.
Love spiders, when I was a child I used to catch them and keep them in jars. Then I caught millers and flies n such to feed em! My mom called an end to it when she saw the 3 black widows I had! lol I dont kill spiders or take them outside, I figure they will take care of other household pest, like flies; now those I hate! Beside its suppose to be bad luck to kill a spider in your house!
You're much braver than me Toni!
I noticed this morning that the paph with the resident centipede is drooping quite a bit. It's been in bloom for maybe 2 months now, so maybe it's just at the end of it's cycle (and I think this is the first blooming for this plant). I hope it's not little buggers living off the roots or something! If it is, I sure hope the 'pede takes care of them!
Now you've piqued my interest, please do!Geez, my pet centipede is about the length of my hand .... perhaps I should post a pic of it
