Cleaning With 8 Legs!
WE were cleaning the garage over the weekend and look what I came upon....AHhhhhh! I spotted it first and was shrieking and pointing, my hubby was the brave one that captured it. We did some research and this is a White Banded Fishing Spider. They are hunting spiders and not snare web building spiders. As you can see, they are quite large spiders and are indeed Maine's largest native spider. Hubby put the penny in for size reference. We let him/her go out on the back porch, to find a new home for the upcoming winter.
