It was a lot of fun capturing the spiders in action. I had never seen a lot of this happen right in front of me. I'm glad everyone is enjoying it. I only wish I had better equipment when it happened. The house was just completed and there were a lot of spiders and other critters in the area but I haven't seen anything since.
This spider made two egg sacks. The first was perfect, second was abnormally shaped. She just vanished one day and the egg pods never hatched anything. I'm thinking the male didn't mate with her.
I don't know much about these wasps. Other viewers have identified the genus (read past posts). But I did see these make the holes in the ground and did see them dragging spiders into the hole. Not sure about tarantulas though. The hole is about an inch across, goes down maybe 10-12 inches, on a slight angle, and there is a tell-tale pile of dirt next to the hole from the excavation. I haven't seen them around the house for awhile or I'd add video of the wasps life.
