While we're talkin spiders, any idea what this is? Wife & the boys tracked & killed (wife) it last week. They lost track of it, but found it trying to hide under the wire. They were ready to move out until I was back home.



I've since trimmed all the tree limbs back away from the house and sprayed bug barrier pesticide around the perimeter of the house. Whatever makes the missus comfortable.

Defiantly killed a recluse tonight in my friends garage. Decided not to tell her what it was.

You should probably let her know what it was in case she finds another one. Better to be informed rather than have months of painful necrotic tissue...or worse.

Looks like an average sized wolf spider to me, scary but harmless.

I told her I killed a spider and to spray for them, just didn't tell her what kind I killed

Ever woke up staring at one on your chest in your tent? I'm 6'0, 175 lbs and I screamed like a 10 year old girl. So then I scanned the tent for spiders and found a black widow hiding in the corner. I moved to my buddies tent for the night.

When I was a kid, I was cleaning my room and found a female with her babies under my bed, hundereds of spiders inches from where I slept. I had nightmares for a week. Lol

Thank you I'll now be checking under my bed tonight.
I captured the one in my tent and took it to the main office (scout summer camp senior patrol) and the maintenance guy about jumped out a window to get away from that thing. Didn't know he had almost died from a spider bite as a little kid. Whoops. Do now.

The irony in this for me is that I was on vacation in Arizona and thought I had something to prove to myself, so I caught a tarantula.

I find the bigger problem to be the centipede. I'll take the necrotic tissue or nausea/diarrhea that can potentially come with a spider bite. The centipede creeps me out more

It seems that the freak factor is related to the number of legs the creature has. Inchworms are cute, though.

Them brown recluses are bad news, a guy at work got bit on the thumb, looked just like the photos at the top of the page at this link.

This link is not for the squeamish.

WARNING :: Brown Recluse Spider Bite Picture :: GRAPHIC


Ordered him a recluse first aid kit, but he ended up in the hospital due to pain before the kit could arrive so I'm not sure if the stuff in the kit is any good. Got a second one for myself. Swear we had one in our shower this morning. Might need to call an exterminator and spray the house down but good.
