Little Long Legged Friends

There are these spiders in my house. I've never had spiders like these anywhere else I've ever lived. They have light brown bodies, not very hairy, fairly small in size but with impossibly log legs.

They like to spin webs in corners and at the junctures between wall and ceiling and then hang upside down in them. My house is full of them. There are at least hundreds at any given time, maybe thousands.

I used to kill them and wipe away the webs, not any more. I kind of like them. When things get slow, you can always watch the spiders.

They may be harvestmen. We call them daddy long-legs here in the East.

Yeah, daddy long-legs are pretty common here in So Cal. I'm surprised you haven't seen them before.

You can pick them up by the legs and take them outside if you don't want to kill them.
