I don't mind spiders - as long as they stay out of the shower. We have plenty of them in the backyard, but they don't seem to be doing a very good job of catching flies. Even though I have a fly trap in the backyard, we are still over run with flies. I have cans of flyspray strategically scattered around the house so that I can blast them whenever I see them.
I would be happier if this spider was a lot fatter. That would indicate a certain proficiency in catching flies. All my spiders look distressingly skinny. Anyone know where I can get some skilled spiders?
