Critters We Share The House With

1. We have a very large spider in our bedroom. I'm calling her Matilda. She appeared a few nights ago and seems to do nothing except move up and down the valley where the walls join the ceiling. I don't think she has a web and I can't see her catching anything. Doesn't seem like much of a life.

2. There are hornets nesting under the roof of the vestibule. They're enormous but dopey.  At night- when the kitchen lights are on- they bump and buzz audibly against the windows.  When they get in doors- as they do occasionally- I trap them under a tumbler and release them into the great outdoors.

3. The bees are still living under the eaves by the patio. There was great activity a few days back- and we thought they might be swarming- but it seems they were just putting in extra effort after several days of rain.
