Daddy Longlegs – Harmless to Flowers

Q: Should I be worried if I see “daddy long legs” spiders on my flowers?

A: No, the daddy longlegs are harmless. Also known as harvestmen, these creatures are not spiders, though the body form is similar. They do not have venom or weave webs. They eat small earthworms, organic soil particles and bird droppings.
