Squint Eyed Spider

The Squint-eye Spider, one of the class of garden spiders known as sheet-weavers, lives in buildings, spinning very large, somewhat loose irregular webs in cellars and dark areas, or under patios, benches, and other places where there is minimal light.. It has a thin, light brown body about a quarterinch long, and such long, incredibly slender legs that it is often mistaken for a daddy long legs. The mother transports the eggs in a thin transparent cocoon until the young garden spiders come out. She lays head down on the web and, by leaping up and down, vibrates it to further entangle insects that stumble into it.
