Nice pic, but if he wasn't moving it didn't take too many balls...



I almost shat myself this morning, was deodorizing, doing my hair when i looked down and jumped. There was a spider just like that about the size of a bottle in diameter just chillin out. Lets just say he got trapped under the bathroom garbage, sprayed... Started running out of the side as i had it tilted and got squished.

Worst spider run in was a Brown recluse when i was camping in an old army wall tent once. Thank god we got rid of it..

We have a lot of those around here, harmless or not I'll leave them alone if they are outside, but when they make their way into the house.......it'* splatty time

We also have a lot of these

Have had a couple find their way into the Jeep when we go wheeling through brush with the top down.

I used to deliver furniture, you should see some of the spiders that come out of the boxes for stuff made in Malaysia

They are very resilent to weather; I would spray them with Spider Insecticide and they would look at me and laugh...so, I would put my size 11 shoe on them. They can be found in many places in the USA due to the fact they travel in fruit and vegetable crates from the South. I know of a guy that got bitten in Minessota by a Brown Spider during winter!!!
I use Brake Cleaner on all of them now( Instant Bug Death Spray )... I tried the Raid and spiders kept going... I had to chase them... A little whiff of Brake Clean and the multi legged bug was upside down and twitching

My favorite is to spray the spiders with any type of cleaner that is flammable, and set them on fire. Or I can smash them with my big *** shoes.

Hehehe. Nothing beats a flaming spider skittering across the floor. Until it runs into the pile of oily rags that you've been saving for whatever reason...
