    They keep together in the centre to keep warm and scatter when disturbed to startle predators (or arachnophobes in this case! image)  Just think of all of the thousands of greenfly they will catch and eat in their short lives which would otherwise be damaging your plants! image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
