The spiders are back

As i posted some time, maybe last summer my 8-legged critters are back. They always surprise me. They are the "wolf spider" found here in Ohio and probably the largest too.

Mine looks more like the one on the right(male) but the last one I saw recently was female and carrying an egg sac. It was lurking in the empty alum. cans/bags that I'm collecting for retirement or a full tank of gas whichever comes first. They do move fast and so far haven't been able to stomp on one. I wish I could get that female, they're probably munching on the insects attracted to the empties.
Remember, last time it "challenged me" then skirted away once I regrouped(stomp it). -----Willy Happy

But if leery, don't. Google for other "wolf spider" pixs. They are fast, for sure. FYI - I've all the bad spiders in my area, brown recluse and very possibility a black widow (I killed it before I looked for tellatle sign). I'm leery of going to the shower now. Wink -----Willy Happy

I was able to get through to the site

by allowing the certificate exception after FF warned me and washed it's hands of any evil done. I've not seen this in my area...must be the shy retiring country type. I do allow some spiders in the house but have very specific rules for them to obey. There's no second chance if they cross that line.

Same here for Safari.

So I went to Google and read : They are robust and agile hunters, and have good eyesight.

Apparently they are just "passing through".

Update, I got one

In reply to: The spiders are back

As always it surprised me when it jumped from above the barn door entry way. It was already running then stopped then wham! I got it with my shopping bag. Since, I know the shed has a mom spider with an egg sac, it will be replaced. They like the doorway for some reason, maybe the ants. I wish, they attack the wasps in there, too. -----Willy Happy
