I don't know about you, but I don't like spiders very much. However, in this recently revealed set of facts, here is one that might be surprising to you.
Spiders are your friend. In a given year, humans consume 400 million tons of meat and fish, but spiders eat almost double that volume of meat in the form of bugs and tiny animals. If you imagine all the meat and fish you consumed this week and then picture that same space and weight being entirely occupied by insects, you’re seeing all bugs that could have been stalking you if spiders hadn’t already gotten rid of them.
I also read that spiders could eat every human on Earth in about a year. Now that is one scary fact I'm just going to ignore for now!
Coffee out on the patio this morning...OK?
