#013 – The Urbanisation of Trapdoor Spiders

Trapdoor Spider - Ecology

In this episode we meet Leanda Mason – A PhD candidate at Curtin University investigating the effect of urbanisation on Trapdoor spiders. Throughout this show you will learn about the ecology of these critters, how to best remove mosquitos from your home via translocation and how spiders are integral to our ecosystem. We also try to uncover some of the many myths and misconceptions about spiders and why people fear them so much.

I hope you enjoy the show and if you have any questions for Leanda or myself please contact us at vaguecomments@gmail.com.
