Giving thanks on this #WisdomWednesday to–––––––SPIDERS!🕷️

Unfortunately, spiders are some of the most misunderstood animals of all!
Many people today are realizing the dangers of harsh chemicals found in many pesticides and wish there was a better alternative. Well, we have one––it’s spiders!
❓Did you know that spiders consume about 880 million tons of insects annually?! Mississippi is home to over 20 different species of spiders––that’s a lot of insect-eating! Spiders are also benefiting us scientifically through uses of their silk. A spider’s silk is stronger than steel, inch-for-inch! That strength combined with its flexibility gives it many potential implications, including important items like bullet-proof vests! This is our day to say a special “thank you” to all our spider friends!🕷️
