I unrolled my toilet paper and found a white still spider that looked like it was mumified. However when my husband went to see it began to move. Is this a local bug or has it been living in my toilet paper since the production plant?
Signature: Please help

This is not a mummified Spider.  It is a living predator.  Many of our submissions of Masked Hunters come from Ontario, so it is safe to say this is a local bug, though it was originally introduced from Europe.  Masked Hunters are predators that will help rid your home of unwanted critters like Bed Bugs and Cockroaches.  The immature Masked Hunter is sticky, and all manner of lint and debris adhere to the Masked Hunter, effectively camouflaging it in its environment.
