the itsy bitsy spider…

April 24, 2020

below is an image of what I believe is a house or cellar spider….it has killed a stink bug and is sucking the juice out of it. Might be nasty, but it is a form of pest control! And as you may be aware, I don’t kill spiders that have intruded into the home. Most of the time, anyway! They kill stink bugs!! Which, in my book, is a good thing! Stink bugs are an invasive species, don’t have many predators (I have found that some spiders, praying mantis’, wrens and chickens do kill and eat them), and are just nasty bugs. They are native to China, Japan and Korea and was accidentally introduced to the U.S. in 1998. But I’m not here to talk about stink bugs… I’m here to talk about spiders… so, shall we?

I took this image this morning with my cell phone

Scientists have discovered why some female spiders eat their mates.
According to data analysis, it turns out the male spiders deserve it.

The itsy bitsy spider
crawled up the water spout
Down came the rain
and washed the spider out
Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider
crawled up the spout again.

“The origin of this song is unknown. It was first published in 1920, more as a song for adults in “Camp and camino in lower California” with the words “It is believed by some that the poem is an “allegory of the struggle of the lower classes”” instead of “itsy bitsy”.
It is believed by some that the poem is an “allegory of the struggle of the lower classes””

“Oh, the blooming, bloody spider went up the spider web,
The blooming, bloody rain came down and washed the spider out,
The blooming, bloody sun came out and dried up all the rain,
And the blooming, bloody spider came up the web again”

~ original lyrics
Words blooming bloody, or itsy bitsy
can be replaced with
incey wincey

hope you have a great day!
