See that not so tiny spider in my tomato patch. This guy has been our guest for over 6 weeks, growing as he captures and eats grasshoppers and other bugs. He is getting quite large about 4 inches or so, but I do not mind him. He is always in the same spot so I know where he is, and he eats other yucky bugs.
We have fun catching grasshoppers, throwing them in his web, and watching him spin a web around his prey. It really is an amazing sight to see. He will be gone soon with the frost season upon us.
Would you have left in your garden?
