These six eyed spiders actually spit a sticky goo to catch their meal. Once the prey is
stuck to this sticky stuff, the spider moves in for the catch. I actually saw this happen
one night while photographing them. My flashlight attracted a fruit fly while I was
taking the shot...check out the photo to the right. These beneficial spiders are
common in and around homes. Free pest control!
