    I had a random spider set up shop at my place for a bit. Never really saw him much, he was very good at staying hidden, which was cool by me. Didn't seem to have any insect problems while he was around.

    My dad taught me that if you have one of those large black jumping spiders in your house to let them be, because they will get rid of all the other spiders and insects. They are harmless too. I don't get those in my neck of the woods. Pretty cool spider though.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    Once the spider can no longer find anything to eat, it leaves. I rather like spiders, so a pest is in the eye of the beholder.

    You can let them infest your home if you wish. I'll kill them when I find them.
