Wolf or Recluse?

Now that fall is upon us, spiders and other critters are tying up loose ends! The animal kingdom knows winter is not far off and lots of other mammals, insects and birds are also preparing.

Did you know all spiders are poisonous? It’s only a few that actually can inflict harm. The venom of the Brown Recluse and Black Widow come to mind.

Do you know the difference?
Now that you’ve compared pictures. What kind of spider is this?

Correct. “The Wolf Spider”.
Not something you’d want to wake up to for breakfast. My niece Alexandria wanted to
keep it for a pet. Just kidding.

Got Milkweed?

Please to announce another recognition for doing my part to save the Monarchs.

The metal plaque will be placed along side of the Backyard Gardeners Recognition to providing the important habitat to wildlife.

We can all do our part by simply providing host plants imperative to the survival of the species.

Milkweed plants are part of the complete cycle needed for caterpillars to gorge themselves before the cocooning stage can happen.

This plant you see is a “snack” for maybe 1 caterpillar. The leaves would be stripped in a few hours. So you see, we need to be diligent and plant as much as we can!

Thanks for doing your part. Needs seeds?
