Banana Spiders

The wife and I have been discussing the fate of these eight-leggers, as I like to call them. She thinks we need to take action, and I have taken the high road: "Nah," I say, "let's not disturb them -- banana spiders are people too." [I may have overstated things]

For now the spiders remain untouched, un-swept-away- with-a-broom. They are friendly enough, afterall. [I may give them all names.]
