baby St Andrews Cross spider babies just hatched

baby St Andrews Cross spider babies just hatched (St Andrews Cross Spiders egg cases and babies.)

The spiders lay their eggs in cute parcels and when the babies are ready they make a hole in the egg case from where they all crawl out, you can see the babies from 1 egg case on the wall

Wish I could say the same, Pitta! Don't mind them in the garden, but hate them in the house-not exactly a gibbering wreck, but not far off lol!

Somehow, spiders just don't do it for me Pitta, I keep a dog and a husband, they do much the same for me ha ha ha! Would not kill a spider, but certainly wouldn't want to share my bedroom with one............:~((

Brilliant Florabunda... I feel exactly the same. Pitta I just have this picture of the Huntsman spider just hanging there somewhere in your bedroom, and it just makes me feel dreadful. Can you hear Fred moving around?

Don't give it a thought Faerieflora Fred does not drop down on a web although I am sure he could if he wanted to . He is very house trai ned. he just crawls around the ceiling and walls, once he was on the end of my bed , must have been something he was tracking. I have no fear of spiders I find them so interesting to study.
