How do I tell spiders apart from daddy longlegs?
(Assuming the myth about them being docile and nonpoisonous is true)
Found pic related hanging above my soap dispenser (ocd fag here)
i don't have it in me to kill anything especially if there's a chance it's harmless
disregard that i suck cocks
but the body sectioning still holds true
i got a better question
where the fuck does one need to look to find a spider nest. i've literally never seen one in my house yet i'm seeing baby spiders fucking everywhere, i'd love to just blast these fuckers with bug spray while they're all grouped up for me.
Fuck this annoys me. I hear it from people around here so often for some reason. There is way too much misunderstanding about "daddy long-legs". There ARE spiders called daddy long-legs. Your picture is a spider. A "daddy long-legs" spider. Spiders produce web and are venomous.
The stupid confusion comes from the harvestmen (not spiders) also called daddy long-legs.
Do you live somewhere where there are poisonous spiders?
Thankfully Finland does not have them.
So what i have IS a hazard to me?
trying to post a better pic but this board's got some file size limitations
That's a cellar spider. It might be able to bite you, but only if you fuck with it. The only reason it's there is because there's insects around, so you should focus on getting rid of those first.
There's only 2 types of things that look like that, a cellar spider and a DLL, both of which won't harm you.
A DLL will just do fucking nothing, and a cellar spider will make a nest and kill spiders that are actually harmful to you. A cellar doesn't have a lot of venom (actually no venom IIRC) or huge jaws, but they use their long legs to wrap their prey alive to immobilize, kill, and eat. Doesn't matter how much venom the opposing spider has, the cellar will win. Cellars are super bros and you should cherish them always.
there's some insulation problems in my bathroom
something about the way the window was made
there will always be spiders, ants, flies for it to catch
as long as he's helping me and not hurting, he's welcome in my home
right now he has a web attached to the medicine cabinet and got bitchy when i opened it though lol
wtf so OP
This anon speaks the truth, DLL spiders are bro tier and will hunt and kill other species. They're the only 8-legged critters I allow to live inside home even though I'm arachnophobic.
