Dispersal and antibiotic treatment. Mean/S.E. of latency to exhibit ballooning behaviour and total time spent in ballooning posture (individual spiders observed for 6 minutes in total) of Erigone atra females subjected to one of three treatments: control/water (C), penicillin (P), tetracycline (T). P-values stem from post-hoc pairwise comparisons between treatments. Results for males (not on graph): mean tiptoe latency C 131.35 ± 25.59, P 28.22 ± 31.34, T 10.44 ± 27.14; tiptoe duration C 55.04 ± 11.12, P 86.54 ± 13.62, T 60.42 ± 11.80.
