Spider is one of the largest representatives of a spider. These spiders are distributed worldwide. My name he got thanks to the distinctive cross on the back of the body. Paint spider often adapted to its surroundings. Animals that establish a network in darker places, such as in a forest or shady bushes, usually dark in color. Animals that weave their nets on the sunny field, and subjected to intense solar radiation, have a lighter shade. Spider feeds on small insects that fall into its web - big flies, fewer wasps and bees. In this location the spider may be in the center of the web and on the edge, watching the signal thread. Production at first paralyzed by the venom, and then digested with digestive secretions spider. Spiders also can save output in reserve. The bite is perfectly safe for humans, at least, may cause only mild irritation. Spider lives mainly in the penumbra, on the fringes of the forest, as well as in gardens and meadows. The time required to weave a web spider, is about a few hours. Cobweb these spiders can reach a diameter of more than 1 m.
There are many ways to protect against flies and mosquitoes. The most reliable and harmless - mesh inserted in place of air vents, and removable frame, veiled with gauze. But we can do without these facilities. Adopt at home spider
Spider can be made to build the network in a circle, which should hang in a suitable location, for instance, to be opened at night windows. And then the web will provide your room fresh air without the whine of a mosquito.
Circle with a diameter of 30-40 cm is convenient to make a fairly thick insulated wire, preferably with filament winding, which is easier to cling to its paws.
To a spider could not escape, the suspension is better to make a copper hair. If not, then you can take and thread, but at some height above the range it should strengthen the ping-pong balls, tin circle, or a glass tube length of 3-4 cm. Then the spider can not escape upward.
Usually on the web, hanging in the garden or in the woods, you will not see a spider: he hides in a shelter. Make your home and for your spider. To do this, put on the base suspension truncated cone of white wrapping paper. Approximate size of his: height - 8 cm, top diameter - 0,5 cm, bottom - 2 cm upper hole is required for better ventilation. The lower base is better to cut at an angle to the axis, just as it is obtained when the device leaves the nest.
When you are done, and equipped with range, hang him and let him in the female spider (males do not weave a network). Caught the spider must be careful to take his fingers over the belly and put on the bottom of the circle. Do not worry, skin spider bite can not. Then he will run up and hide until the evening in a cone.
The universe is not always smooth. Sometimes the spider tries to escape from the suspension or down on the floor. The latter path can be eliminated by placing a round bowl with water. If the spider's nest had at heart, then it will build in terms of network and sits in the center until the morning. In the daytime the spiders are usually hidden in the nest, placing one of its eight legs to signal the thread, stretched to the center of the network. It is no coincidence, since it is more convenient to navigate. If a fly fell into the gap between the center of the network and nest, the spider rushes out to the middle of the first network and only then on the radial threads gets to his prey.
Fishing with flies and mosquitoes are around the clock. Gradually a network of wear, it formed holes. Industrious spiders themselves replaced by a new network of "bad". As a growth animal is lazy and does not alter the long chain. In this case, just before dusk should shave threads holding the network to the circle, they are usually less than ten, to balance the network was hanging over the nest. Typically, this is enough to fresh morning appeared the network. The efficiency of a spider is amazing. You can make spider on a daily basis to change the network: the network will rarely there for several days.
