A funny story from Sam,
While spraying a yard a few years ago, he came upon something that looked like a tumbleweed. Upon further inspection, this 18 to 24 inch diameter ball was none other than granddaddy long legs bundled together in a breeding frenzy! It was bizarre! That was the first and last time Sam had come across this phenomenon of nature.
