It's spider season at our house. To be honest, we have spiders all year long, but there are certain times of year when spiders just seem to be everywhere.
On Sunday morning, I came out to find that a spider had built its web in the middle of the living room! It stretched its silk from the ceiling fan switch all the way down to the rug. After admiring the spiders ambition, I unfortunately had to destroy it's web. It's one thing to have spiders in the garden--or even a windowsill--but quite another the have one blocking the way to the couch.
Our home hosts several different types of spiders. The ones in the corners of the window frame can sometimes make a bit of a mess. But, since we spend most hot days with the doors and windows wide open, I appreciate their help with keeping the flying bug population under control.
So, the house spiders and I have a certain understanding. They stay out of my way, and I keep the web disturbances to a minimum. It's working for us so far.
