High-rise spider talk starts early this year

Dan Goodwin, a/k/a SpiderDan, perched high on the John Hancock building’s façade only once, but spiders of another species do it annually.

If you haven’t lived in a Chicago high-rise you might be unaware of the annual spider migration that annoys some residents, frightens others and amuses many who dwell closer to the ground.

Various options for dealing with the spiders, from frogs to blowtorches, are being served up in comments at Reddit in response to a post anticipating the arachnid invasion. Head over there and chime in with your own.

You can also head over to Flickr to see 100s more of our aerial views of Chicago.

    No matter how high off the earth you get in these skyscrapers you can’t get away from those things. I hope many who live in buildings like the John Hancock know not to even try to open the windows. MAN! 😛
