Carnivorousness

If you come in my cage I'll eat you too!

A brown recluse spider built a web and took up residence across my television screen





I saw this female brown recluse walking across the edge of my television two nights ago. Last night I came home to find she found the flat screen tv a kewl place to hang out and lay eggs. Her abdomen is fat with eggs.

While she stayed in her little nest on the periphery on the bezel, I watched NOVA about fractals, a show on autistic savants, and Frontline's excellent program on the war in Afghanistan before I noticed the spider had disappeared from her web which is itself composed of fractals. I guess she was off to hunt bugs.

Of course, last night I was unaware that she was a recluse spider and was congratulating myself for not smashing her, no matter how large and wicked looking she may be. Supposedly, brown recluses do not live in California.

No good deed goes unpunished and today I was showing her photo around the work place when I got the idea to look her up on the internet. Lo and behold, she looks exactly like the pictures of brown recluses, one of which is at the top of this post.

I hope she doesn't bite Devil Dog while I am at work. My neighbor's dog walker's labrador lost its eye and half its face this spring after a venomous spider bite. I hope she has gone back to her web so I can smush her when I get home

Holy moly, I hope for your sake the brown recluse is still on the TV screen when you get back so you can squish it pronto. If not, don't casually slide your feet into any of your shoes or slippers without checking them out first. If you can't locate the thing, damn the expense and call a professional exterminator in. The recluse is deadly.
