The things we do

One day in our back yard we found a spider wasp trying to carry a paralysed huntsmen spider up our glass sliding door. I had never seen a spider wasp before. I had to look it up on the internet. Apparently they travel solo and stun spiders to use as feeding bays for their young. The spiders are still alive when their babies are born. Ew. I called a pest specialist to see what I could do. They advised I try to spray it with insecticide and not make it angry. NOT make it angry. We were freaking out about going outside at all. I eventually got up the courage to venture outside with a fly swatter and a can of fly spray. I was the mummy and it was my job. I sprayed that sucker several times. It got angry and flew away. At least it dropped the spider. I could not catch it to kill it. So we still didn’t venture outside for some for fear of running into a pissed off spider wasp.
