Spiders!

Dear Mr. Giant Black Spider in my bathroom,

I was frightened when I saw you way up high near my ceiling because of your size.

I started packing when I saw how quickly you could run.

Enjoy the house.

Be brave, get a broom or the vacuum hose and get rid of it.

And how do you know it is a Mr. ? Could be a Mrs.

It would even be worse if it were a MRS.

You could have hundreds of those suckers running around soon.

I hate spiders.

I had a problem in this house with what I think were wolf spiders last year
I never liked them before, but man did that jump to a whole new level. The ones in the house were always on the floor. They didn't build webs or climb and they were HUGE.

I am already dreading the possibility of their return. If I see even one I will call an exterminator so fast it won't even be funny. I am not spending another fall anxious all the time.

I woke one day last year and my front lawn was covered in ground webs. My thought is they must have found their way in from that point. I want to say we only ever found about 10 or 12 but that was more than enough.

All I can say is that I regret ever opening this thread. Why did I even do it? I should have known better.

I will retreat now to my happy place. Is it too early to start drinking?

: scared:

We are starting to see a lot of spiders but luckily they are small and slow so far.

I don't kill spiders or other insects I find sharing our house. I gently scoop them up or slide them into a container and put them outside. Our house is a no-kill zone for bugs! That's how I was raised.

Edited to add: I always marvel at the beautiful spiderwebs outside IG, by the water. Huge, intricate webs! Just gorgeous! Better than all of Epcot!

You do realize that, statistically speaking, you are never more than 6 feet away from our arachnid friends.

Same here except, I have had to kill the the suckers on my house. I have a spider invasion/infestation on my siding and my roof eaves.

Not a fan of spiders. I make a deal with them every Spring. You stay up near the ceiling and you live; drop down in front of me, crawl near me, touch me in any way and you die in a horrific tightly rolled up ball of paper towel accident.

Recently I was sitting here in front of my computer when I felt something fall onto my left eye and flutter about on my eye lash. Naturally I rubbed my eye to find a tiny spider caught in my lashes. Of course I squished him or her when I rubbed my eye. I am not one to be afraid of spiders but yes, I did shudder over this one.

I usually don't even bother with spiders, even brown recluses in my warehouse. Just don't typically bother me.

A harmless 6" long snake on the other hand
