    We have them around here too..
    VFTs often catch them with those long legs hanging out of the trap!

    Those legs look very similar to "Daddy long legs" legs..I wonder if they are closely related?..I do know that "Daddy long legs" are not technically spiders, even though most people incorrectly assume they are..

    (scot heads over to google..be right back..)

    ok..they are not related:

    The crane fly is a true insect..the Daddy long legs (harvestman) is an arachnid, but not a spider!

    Crane flies eat mosquitos; they're good. Just don't try to catch them, because they do bite when provoked and it hurts like hell. Has anyone read any Edward Gorey?

    O what has become of Millicent Frastley?
    Is there any hope that she's still alive?
    Why haven't they found her? It's rather ghastly
    To think that the child was not yet five.

    PS - In July/August the ones around my house can get to the size of my hand. The bodies alone are several inches long and as thick as a pen.
