Morning and Night Spiders

  • Morning and Night Spiders


    There is a superstition related to spider in Japan.

    It is “If you find spiders in the morning, you should let them go even if they are hateful enemies. If you find spiders at night, you should kill them even if they are families.”

    In Japan, it is said that spiders in the morning are a kind of lucky items.

    In fact, since spiders make a web on only sunny days, seeing a spider in the morning means that the day will be sunny.

    On the other hand, this superstition says that you should kill spiders at night, but actually, you shouldn’t do that.

    This is because spiders are beneficial insects that eat pests such as cockroaches and flies.
