Spiders in and out

As many folks know, I love spiders. Around the house, I let cobweb spiders have their way. Looks messy, I know, but I don't mind. Jumping spiders are my favorites. The more, the merrier. However, I draw the line at bigger spiders, such as wolf spiders. Which brings me to write this post. In the last few weeks, small wolf spiders–about the size of a quarter–have been appearing on our dining room floor. I pick them and escort them outside. This morning, I FOUND ANOTHER ONE! I bet this is the seventh or eighth one. Another guy, too. The last one was a male, too. Could it be the same male wolf spider coming in every time? Nawwwwwwwwww.

But what if?

And oh, yes, I must say: wolf spiders are NOT harmful. So please don't squish'em if they start showing up on your dining room floor.

More likely they are brothers--or sisters. ;-)

Wolf spiders might not be dangerous to most, but I have a deadly allergy to their paralysis venom that they use on large bugs and other spiders. I still don't kill them unless they try to jump on me when I am trying to catch them under a jar to escort them outside. I can't afford another trip to the emergency room this summer.
