I’m not sure if you saw my blog from last week, but we had a rogue wolf spider roaming the halls at the Mission Repair campus. You can check out that story here. All wolf spiders are very skittish and very fast, but not necessarily too aggressive. Creepy, yes. A threat to us, no!
Well that wasn’t an anomaly, I heard a bit of ruckus coming from KCTool Co. last night (who is occupying the building right next to Mission Repair) and they ended up catching one of these guys in a clear container. The owner Kyle brought it over to me and here it is on my desk:
This makes two enormous spiders caught within our office walls in the last few business days. It made me remember an article that I read about the caterpillars changing the way they eat due to global warming. Could this also be a reason that we are seeing some enormous spiders moving indoors? Seeing two spiders probably isn’t enough to make any guesses yet…but I’ve been in this building for almost 7 years and I’ve never had a spider “problem” like this.
I have noticed that there aren’t many crickets in the office, which we tend to get from time to time. I think that these spider have been eating well 😉
Rest assured that this guy was released unharmed and sent back into the wild.
OK, back to work, but as I was typing this I was sure that I felt something crawling in my socks. It’s a mind over matter thing. There is nothing there…there is nothing there…
Take care, Ryan
