Spider – free in every box

Stumbled upon spider yesterday.

As we have had persistent predator problems we use a reasonable amount of electro-mesh fence from Premier1. This fencing has been doing well, but as we get further from power we need to use solar or battery powered energizers. The battery powered ones clearly require a marine battery box to keep them dry.

The find!

When working on the fence we opened the battery box and found out someone had taken up residence.

Beautiful markings

Good news was hat there were no flies present. 

Don’t worry I did not kill it – I just left the top of the box for an hour or so, and the spider relocated.

As always – look before you put your hands into or under things.
