My sister is feeling SO much better today!!
(This afternoon on the porch, looking at a box that came in the mail FOR US!)
Stanzie's bite incident, has put the peeps on spider patrol and research.
They have been raking, sweeping, blowing and cleaning all the places that Stanzie likes to hang out on the property.
One of her favorite places to lounge, is the den of hay that the peeps made for her under our big deck.
Today, they raked away all the hay and the first thing Mom saw was this large brown spider on the lattice.
So, she snapped it's picture for ID purposes, then she beat it to death with a rock.
We are "pro" nature around here, unless nature hurts MY SISTER!
(We will have Alpha Ecological Control back out SOON!)
The pictures on the lattice are our spider. The pictures on white are Google Images of the Hobo Spider.
We are not 100% sure, but we think it was a Hobo Spider.
Not as deadly as the Brown Recluse, but still poisonous.
Stanzie's bites....after a week of treatment and meds.
Stanzie has really rallied back! Today, she had her tennis ball out in the garden and was attempting to bury it, before being discovered.
That's a good sign!!
