just a bit of a rant on this thread....
I just love spiders, and it saddens me so much when I see how many posters just kill them all.... Just do yourself a favour and study the amount of
carcasses of insects they have eaten around their nests. You will be surprised by how many insects they eat. Back when I lived in Africa, I would
count the amount of insect-carcasses around the liars of spiders that lived in my house, and it was a case of 50-100 mosquitoes every night...
Although all true spiders are venomous, they would leave you alone, if you leave them alone. When I arrived in Norway, I was so relieved to find that
many people believed it was bad luck to kill a spider.
Learn about the spiders in your area, see which ones you should avoid. Don't kill spiders, if you are uncomfortable with them in your home, catch
them and put them outside. If you are too scared of that, ask somebody else to do it for you, but please don't kill them. They serve a very important
role in their ecological niche.
