Our house is a magnet for spiders. I’ve blogged about this before (September 2011, May 2012, May 2013), and this year is no different. I’m not arachnophobic by any means; in fact, I’m glad the spiders hang out at your house to eat flies, mosquitoes and other insects that would be a much bigger nuisance than they are.
Still, I wish they wouldn’t build their webs in my spiky plants. One agave (Agave ‘Kissho Kan’) is particularly afflicted. It would make a great prop for a haunted house movie, wouldn’t it?
I wonder what it will look like on Halloween if I don’t remove the spiderwebs?
Sometimes the wrong insect gets caught! Sorry, little fella!
