如何在不打斷或殺死蜘蛛的情況下取出爸爸長腿卵囊?


8

爸爸的長腿(Pholcus phalangioides)喜歡我的浴室。我通常可以與他們共存;他們不打擾我,我也不打擾他們,當他們躺在天花板上時,他們很難受。

但是...有時候,有人帶著一個卵囊。

這帶來了更大的煩惱。我上一次嘗試移動其中一個蜘蛛時,它爆炸成大約三打蜘蛛。我逃走了這麼多蜘蛛對我來說太多了。我可以共存一兩個。像上次一樣28沒辦法

不過,我不想殺死任何蜘蛛。與他們一起搬進更廣闊的世界而與他們生活在一起,我對此感到更糟。所以,話雖這麼說...

在沒有以下情況的情況下如何移動卵囊

  • 打破卵囊,或者
  • 傷害蜘蛛嗎?

Use a pencil or other small stick to gently poke at the female spider so that she crawls away from the eggs. Her self preservation should be more important to her than defending her eggs sacs.Then you can reach in with some tweezers or perhaps even twist and wrap up the eggs and some of the webbing on the end of the pencil or stick and pull the eggs out of the web.

Many spiders which are carrying their youngsters will drop them if in panic. Basicly you don't want that to happen uncontrolled.

Catch the Spider with a glas and a piece of paper, just like you would catch a bee or something. Now you can use a pencil to make the big one angry. Be annoying, until the spider attacks the pencil. At one point, the spider will release the eggsack.

Now you can pull out the large spider with your pencil, and put the eggs whereever you want to (outside?)

Capture the spider carrying the egg sac in a clear jar or tub, like those you buy cold things in at the grocery store or a medium-sized Chinese restaurant soup takeout container (after cleaning it out). I recommend plastic instead of glass so that it won't break if you make any sudden movements etc.

Slide a paper under the container as it's against the wall/ceiling/floor, so the big spider climbs on to it with the egg sac.

Then put something stiffer (like a thin hardcover book or clipboard) under the paper to help keep it flat against the bottom of the jar, and carry the mother and her sac all together outside. Set it all down, tip over the jar and if necessary gently tap to encourage the mother to climb out.
