Hi Jennifer,
Years ago, when our website didn’t exist and What’s That Bug? was a column in a fledgling zine called American Homebody, people like you were our target audience.  We wanted to make homemakers more aware of the crawling creatures they would encounter around the house and to educate them to the beneficial natures of many of the creatures they might otherwise squash or exterminate.  We are happy your harmless, predatory Solpugid, AKA Sun Spider or Wind Scorpion, is now back in the wild.  Thanks for your letter.
