Hey there,


I find these guys in my backyard quite frequently, and feed them to my ants.


They look quite like Pholcidae (Daddy long legs) spiders, although I'm doubtful that's it. If anyone knows what they are please let me know, as I want to find out if I can culture them.


Thanks in advance,


- AntsBC
