There are probably few creatures that you would rather see less than a spider. The creepy crawly is a source of many nightmares, and may certainly cause a call to your pest control company. However, did you realize that, in some instances, spiders actually are a form of pest control? In fact, many farmers rely on these arachnids to keep their pest population in check. As a recent Discover blog shared, spiders even have their own personalities.
In an interesting experiment, researches set out to test the personality of spiders, and how personality might affect pest control. They tested spiders and split them into active and inactive categories. Then, they put them into an environment, creating an all active one, an all inactive one, and a mixed environment. The results showed that the mixed environment had less surviving pests, and very unpredictable results. The all active or inactive environments had very predictable results, with more surviving pests, giving credence to the idea that a diverse environment may be ideal.
