No. Laugh out load Tongue
But they are hard to kill. Confused
Me & my younger brother dropped a heavy ass rock, loosed from the wall enclosing the walkway around the house, on top of it. Kicked the rock back over, and homeboy was still alive, and began crawling off like he was pissed. I immediately fled the scene as if the devil was after me. Bechased

You dumbass!!! Now in a few weeks, you are going to be cornered by a spider who is crippled and yet strangely familiar. Haven't you ever seen a critter horror flick? You ALWAYS have to finish the job the first time or the job will finish you.

RE: Possible tarantula incoming
Years ago, we had some large spiders that appear to have come in on the wind. I was going through the gate into the side yard on the east side of the property and rubbed against a spiderweb. That thing was thick and almost sounded like a stringed instrument. I looked around for the spider, and there it was, up under the eave, about 15 feet off the ground. Kind of a golden brown color with a body bigger than my thumb- about 2" by 1.1". I threw a broom at it and knocked it down. it took off running, and I had to hit it several times with the broom before it stopped. Tough bugger! Haven't seen any like it since.

RE: Possible tarantula incoming
I am on spider patrol here. Husband and son (when he was still living here) scream like little girls when they see a spider.

The ones that creep me out are those awful ones that when you try to swat them a zillion babies spread out all around them...that's just creepy as hell. Even creepier than the SCUBA spiders I have to scoop out of the pool.

Back in SC I was going to clean out a dog crate that had been outside and found a black widow in the corner. I had the crate taken apart so I had access. I sprayed the crap out of her with insect spray...like enough to knock her down into a corner and she was completely submerged in the poison. Then she crawled back out like nothing had happened...wtf?!?!?! After knocking her back down into the poison a couple times and her crawling back out I went and got a brick...I couldn't even slow her down with poison but that damn brick did the job.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Possible tarantula incoming
Black widows. Yes. When I was a kid, we got them all the time, fortunately not in the house, in rural southern California. I was in the garage with my dad, and spotted one. He went at it with the "Flit" gun, which uses nicotine. The spider just wiped the guck off and walked away. It got the stomp, at that point. When I worked as a mechanic, we would find them all the time under cars we worked on. Since we were always painting components we replaced, like water pumps, we would just paint them. Instant kill! Outside the house, I don't actually care where they are, as long as they don't encroach where our little dogs frequent. Our youngest is 26, so knows where to look before he reaches. If we ever get grandchildren, it'll be preemptive war on them. Can't have the little ones sick from that.

Pro tip- before black widows mature, they are yellow and gray striped. Their fangs aren't long enough yet to inject venom through your skin, but if you see a spider colored like that, and don't want adults, smash it now.

I know that... Dodgy

It was the poison I had on hand. The brick was still more effective.

I would rather have black widows than jehovahs witnesses, because I like black widows. Tongue
