Want to move baby bros but they're too numerous, small and fragile ? Use The Big Brush©.

Just put the brush against the wall next to the babies and gently run it over them. They won't get crushed but taken in the hair like dust. Then you can take them wherever you want and blow them away (they'll untangle themselves).

Addicted to coffee

I was calm having a coffee under a tree. There are a lot of jumping spiders here, but it seemed to me that there was a fly in my cup. When I went to scare her away I saw that it was actually a spider and I left her alone to see if she would go away... the little one went towards the coffee and touched it with her paws. I think she thought she could walk over it, but she got his head inside her. She came out alone, but I left her out of the cup, because I don't think coffee is good for someone so young haha

sad story

today i was not a spider bro. i was a cunt. and i feel so bad. so yesterday morning i woke up insanely hungover. bed-ridden hungover. couldnt wake myself up, felt ill and out of it. whilst suffering in my bed i heard a buzzing noise circling me, surprise surprise it was a fly. was well too hungover to deal with it, tried to ignore it whilst i drifted in and out of consciousness, planned to deal with it later when i could actually function. eventually i become more lucid and less ill, i wake myself up and start getting on with my day. i didnt think too much of it but the fly was nowhere to be heard or seen. decided not to stress too much about it or make suppositions on what had happened to it. left my yard n did my thing. when i came back, early hours of morning, i noticed a spider chilling by my bedroom window. they had a sack by their mouth (see attached photo). instantly assumed it was an egg sac. i love spiders genereally but to avoid an infestation i decided to wrestle the sac off the spider into a cup, to take outside. once outside out of curiosity i took a proper look at what id taken. it wasnt an egg sac, it was an expertly wrapped fly. i put two and two together, that mustve been the fly that was bugging me b4hand. i thought about trying to return it to the spider but i thought it wasnt really practical plus the cup still had a drop of juice in it which had soaked the fly so i just threw it out. not only had the spider done me a service, it had found itself a one in a million feast for their hard work. i destroyed their reward. i walked back inside with shame and i stg the spider was looking at me, sad and betrayed, i profusely apologised but inknow it was worthless as they cant understand my fickle human language. i hate myself rn im so sorry lil spider and am i morally wrong for intending to get rid of an egg sac?

Absolute Unit

This guy lives in the screen right next to our dining room table. My wife named him Magnus to lessen her fear of this 3" spider.

He frequently brings his meals back to enjoy them in there. Or they just walk into his home?

Either way, he thinks he's part of the family.

I feel so awful

I feel so awful and sick to my stomach. I killed a black widow, which I adore and always leave them be. I even had one living iny small compost bin (she was huge! So many insects in there.)

So we recently moved and have an enclosed patio. So, I let my cats out with me, always with me a supervised. This way they get to lounge and it keeps them from killing wildlife. Well tonight like literally 15 mins ago, my cat was near a web. I KNEW that we, and there she was. My cat tried to lunge for her and I went straight primalode and stomped her. I knew my cat would still get a hold of her before I could get her inside.

I feel so guilty, I love them so much. I even kept one in a terrarium back in my early 20's. She was wonderful. This poor lady I killed had egg sacks. I was able to relocate those outside of the apartment complex.

Feel free to tare me apart, I deserve it.

Rescued this spiderbro from my office today. It was snuggled up with my plush black widow that hangs in my window.

Spotted orbweaver (Neoscona crucifera)

I had the pleasure of witnessing this beautiful spotted orbweaver (Neoscona crucifera) building a huge web on my back porch this evening. There were actually two of them - one on either side of the porch!
