Arachnology is the scientific study of arachnids, which comprise spiders and related animals such as scorpions, pseudoscorpions, and harvestmen. Those who study spiders and other arachnids are arachnologists. More narrowly, the study of spiders alone (order Araneae) is known as araneology.
Surrounded by spiders in the tree canopies with huge webs attached to the garden furniture and leaves and branches of trees, one can’t help but study the spiders! Online it informs me that there are at least a hundred different species of garden spider suited to different settings in the garden.
Do spiders fly? For example. I have seen their web strings trapesing across the garden nearly all the way across the whole garden! I have seen one in action! I believe they use the air currents to “fly” to their destination to attach the web string. Spiders jump too! So if you wonder how they get to build their huge webs this is how!
One silly fly in my room at night was playing with a spider, torturing it to death! It was running around the ceiling in and out under the web in the corner of the room! The spider was trying to catch it. Is the fly stupid or clever? I believe it got away in the end!
Like spiders, there are hundreds of different species of flies all sizes and shapes! In the end they will come to a grizzly end if they do not watch out their step! So enjoy the carnage and life as it evolves around you in the garden as life is too short.Copyright © Katy Durnford 30 September 2021 - 2021. All rights reserved.
