    a big huge scary spider!

    Being the nice vegan that I am, I let him go in the backyard..squishing this guy would have resulted in a lot of guts and such!

    ok next time lets say that it's a spider in the title... It would save me a lot of arachnophobia stress:eek:

    I think if I found that in my house, I would be running away from home hahahaha

    I woke up to one of those face to face on my pillow. I never got out of bed so quickly.

    It was the summertime and I was sleeping in the much cooler basement (unfinished). I've never seen one in the house since that.

    I'm much more afraid of spider guts than I am of spiders. And imagine what kinds of little insects that sucker would eat. I like spiders, they serve me well. Catch and release, excellent solution.:cool:

    (I read once that you are never more than 6 feet away from a spider.)

    Sometimes I go spider hunting at night. Put the flashlight up against your head near your eyes. That way the reflection from the spider eyes reflects back and you can see them.

    What's really creepy is when you come across one with 50 or so babies on its back. Hundreds of little eyes gleaming back at you. It makes for a big mess when you stomp on them though. Unless they are in the house, I leave them alone. They eat all of the other little bugs crawling around.

    I'm actually not in maryland right now, I'm visiting my grandparents in texas. they live in an extremely rural area in a farely old house. I'm pretty used to spiders frequenting their house by now, so it was not big deal.

    (although, I admit..when I first saw it, my reaction was something along the lines of "oh my, oh my, oh my god...very big spider!!!")

    Well, that sucks because I hate spiders. I saw that pic and don't ever want to see one in real life. I live in Maryland. I need to go look through my whole apartment now and search.

    Edit: I just finished reading the thread and see you're in Texas. Thanks for that. I no longer need to search the place.

    When we first moved into our house in very rural North Georgia, we had the whole family over. We're all sitting in the living room watching a movie when my 10 year old daughter starts screaming hysterically. We looked in the kitchen and there were 3 spiders the size of a man's fist! Huge suckers! Even I got up on a chair. My husband beat em with the broom. One had babies come out all over the place. It was right out of a horror movie. We used insect spray to kill em all. It was a fear thing. If I had it to do over again, I would trap them and let them go outside.

    They're EVERYWHERE!
    *draws swords*
    spiders obediently line up on the blades and are whisked away to the safety of the high grass outside.....

    I got bit by a brown recluse and had to go to the hospital for necrosis or something like that because I ignored it and after 2 days my flesh started to rot. I took a picture of the wound.

    I agree with some of the above posters, I have a tendency to leave the spiders and centipedes alone. They do insanely more good than bad. Especially centipedes. They're keepin' it real in the predatory realm.

    "House centipedes feed on spiders, bedbugs, termites, cockroaches, silverfish, ants and other household arthropods."

    Oh yeah. Centipedes in the house! (literally and figuratively).
