As I've been removing multiflora rose from the woodland nature preserve, I've been spitting out a lot of spiders as I keep running into their webs; fortunately they're mostly smaller cousins of this barn spider. However I do have a suggestion, backed by experience: for your peace of mind if you happen to be working in the woods, and something lands on top of your cap with a 'plop'' that makes you think of a soft acorn, just shake off your cap and keep moving... don't, out of curiosity, stop and stick your cap under your nose to see what's on it.
I took 3 wheelbarrow loads of sticks from our yard to the "ravine out back" a couple of days ago. My first trip through the trees forged a path through several unseen (but hardly unanticipated) spiderwebs. Upon my return, I asked my Husband to check out the top of my head! :-)
I feel the same way about reaching in to get that real ripe tomato that's in the very center of my 6' plants. I can feel the webs breaking, but I don't think about it and I don't look. yukPost a Comment
