Subject: Sun spider – carnage averted
June 13, 2012 12:30 am
Found a sun spider on my window screen tonight in Reno, NV. Didn’t know what it was, so I came to your site to help me identify it. I try to live in harmony with insects, spiders, etc. whenever possible and thanks to the information in your “Unnecessary Carnage” section, I knew it was harmless and relocated it to an area away from my house. Carnage averted. Carry on with the good work.

Sun Spider

Dear Tam,
Thanks for both your kind letter and your kind treatment of the Sun Spider or Solifugid.  We are posting a photo from our archives with your letter to illustrate just how frightening looking these harmless creatures appear.
