Could singing at a spider be enough for it to move away? According to US man Andrew Wilcox, it seems to do the trick. Wilcox, who calls himself the "spider remover", posted footage showing a spider reacting to his singing voice.
According to a study by the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, each hair on a spider acts like a single, independent ear. Trichobothria are fine hairs found on spiders, insects and other animals with exoskeletons.
Physicist Brice Bathellier of the Institute Of Molecular Pathology in Vienna, who co-authored a study of trichobothria hairs said: “They operate like band-pass filters or microphones, not like the hairs in a human ear".
