I carry spiders outside so they can live longer. Am I humaninzing them? I'm just respectful of life.



I've got a couple of spiders living with me here at barn 1.0. I think they are called wood spiders. Pretty common around here. Anyway they have set up housekeeping under the sill of the front door. They occssionally scurry across in front of me as I come and go. They have a cobweb going in the corner that I see all sort of insect carcass bits under it, so they are helping control the occassional moth or mosquito that sneaks in.

There is a large one maybe two inches across if you outstretched his legs, the other is about half that size. I call them Mutt and Jeff.

Mutt, the big one, ventured under my couch the other day. I tried to not let that creep me out although they are harmless. I guess I was mostly concerned about been startled by an unexpected touch. So far they have behaved well, no problems, and they are welcome to live here
but if one ever bites me, then its going to be a bad day in spiderville.
