Moth traps have unexpected benefit for house spiders

I bought some and put them here and there. Don't seem to be terribly effective but yesterday I noticed a nice house spider, waiting patiently by one. Like a restaurant! This morn he is still there, so apparently it's worth his time.

1. A few years ago I had a terrible infestation of what I call 'pantry moths'

The larva were actually CRAWLING ACROSS THE CEILING!! I had to toss out so many dry goods and stock up on zip lock bags to store any replacement products. It was like a horror movie.

So, after I cleaned, emptied, sanitized, tossed out, scrubbed everything down, I bought some of those 'pheromone' moth traps. BINGO. Problem solved. But, come to think of it, what I found IN those traps didn't seem to equate to what I'd seen BEFORE the traps.

As a full fledge arachnophobe, now I'm wondering, and admit to be slightly creeped out!

I'm going to be more cautious when reaching into the corners of the pantry!
