So, this week we had our next bout of warmer, sunny weather. And for some reasons a list of spiders instantly sought to seek shelter in my home. Or at least dwell about.

Monday, a rather startling jumpy black spider on my curtains. wanted to catch it but it dropped/ jumped down behind the radiator. I think I got it Tuesday morning on my door.
$tuesday: one larger spider of an undetermined species scuttling across my floor. Also one smaller spider caught on the wall.

Wednesday, a similar spider to the larger one fleeing out of the wooden plank that I use to lock my door.

Friday: found a solid black/brown spider chilling in a plastic container left on my bathroom floor.

So, as an interesting, I found an app that I can use to take a picture of spiders/bugs and have it analyze and identify the bug and allowing me to submit the observation.
Which makes it a lot more interesting to catch and photograph the spider and learn more about all kinds of spiders I find indoors.

Friday's bathroom spider was identified as Scotophaeus Blackwalli (mouse spider).

Today tried to identify a smaller spider I saw scuttling accross my windows and identify it as a Philodromus dispar. (black back running spider)

Parallel to my opportunity to play some New Horizon this weekend, I might be interested to learn more about the bugs/spiders I can commonly find around the house.

Put behind a link for your discretion.

Just caught another night time Philodromus walk my laptop screen like a jumpscare screensaver.

And they can be very fast and jumpy buggers. This one lept into the cup I held to catch it and then from the bottom of the cup to the top in a single leap.

a philodromus is a small crab spider.

I was closing up downstairs, so the room was dark and my screen gave off a bright light. I saw the spider suddenly rush up my screen, which briefly made me wonder if I was on one of those joke sites with a fake spider running across the screen. But this was the real deal.
It startled me.

Saw this little dude on my wall earlier today

He's called a slender crab spider

Spoiler for those who don't like spiders

Heh

coincidentally it's very similar to the one I mentioned earlier.

>>1085834
It startled me because it was a suddenly a black spider shape on an illuminated surface in a dark room and it was rather jumpy.
But to be fair, it's about as big as my fingernail.

Oh, how is it living with pet roaches?

I caught myself another spider, but my app doesn't go beyond "some kind of ground spider".

It can spend the night in spider jail and gett released by the morning.

And as I was ready to move up to my bedroom, I just saw another one, a good size up from the one I caught rush across the floor.

But when I got me a cup to catch it, it was nowhere to be seen....

This is not going to be a pleasant week.

Well, they say eating insects and by extension arthropods is going to be a necessity for sustainable living in the near future.

Are you looking forward to this?
