So one of my friends told me that when they had their 17 year cicada invasion (yes you Cami!) that they were infiltrated with spiders because the birds feasted on the Cicadas. And I am confirming that THAT IS HAPPENING TO US!! I have arachnophobia - I am sure by now our neighbors are used to blood curdling screams when I am picking tomatoes and squash in the garden.

Or even when I open the back door into a giant spider web. I find them everywhere - giant spiders love the children's swingset and play house outside - they will do webs all over it and then jump all the way over to the house and do giant webs in between.

And it didn't help when I was redoing our curtains and one GIANT SPIDER jumped out of the curtains.

I just have to refrain from picturing the shower scene in the movie "Arachnophobia" - if you have seen the movie, you know what I am talking to. YIKES!!

I had those exact same spiders during that time. I took a million pictures of that one with yellow and black striped legs while It was eating a praying mantis. I MEAN! Good luck with that.
