two nights ago i opened my back door and just as i was about to step outside
i noticed an Orb Weaver dangling down less than a foot away from my face
(this is a different Orb Weaver to the other one in my backyard that i spoke
of in the previous thread, and a little smaller, but the same species -
regular Garden Orb Weaver)
As it was right near the back door (i literally couldnt walk outside without
walking through its web) I had no option but to capture her in a plastic cup
and relocate her - I took her to the corner of the garden, about 20
meters/65 feet away.
... but the next night she was back! It was at about 1am when i first
noticed her ... by comparison the other Orb Weaver starts building her web
at around 8.30pm. And because she's nocturnal I'm guessing she took about
4 or so hours to crawl back to this seemingly favorite spot of hers - my
So _again_ for the second night in a row i capture her and relocate her,
basically releasing her in the same place ...
... and _again_ tonight for the third night she's returned ! ....
territorial little ***! eheh
