    "So where were the spiders
    while the fly tried to break our balls?
    Just the beer light to guide us.
    So we bitched about his fans
    and should we crush his sweet hands?"

    Another vote for the Mars version.

    If you think spiders are already too fast, do not give them coffee. Unless you're me.

    This is Wolf Blitzer; he lives in my shop and takes care of all the other creepy-crawlies for me. We have a deal: I give him coffee (WITH cream, thank you!), and he does not bite me.

    Next time you see a spider, get out the laser pointer. It's like a remote control for spiders.

    I merely don't like insects, my wife has a phobia of black widows, and has been raging a battle to eliminate them if not from the earth, at least her property for fifty five years! She studies their habits, is on the lookout for their webs, and will stalk them at night when they come out. She comes in after a bout with them, and gleefully recounts how many she killed that night to me. I'm glad that she still likes me, I'm just an old Daddy Long legs, and probably safe.

    There is an 800 help line for people who like spiders. The rest of us just kill them.

    They can "function" somewhere else...just not on my property or house. I looked on the ceiling last night as I was going to bed and there was one who was spinning webs in front of the window as I was closing the blinds...


    SPLAT! :D

    Now we know what happens to the eighth leg. PeeGoo removes them with lasers.

    Look out for those three-eyed fish!

    I don't like spiders in the house. Especially in (or on) the Bed. We have had two large brown fiddle-back looking spiders on or near the bed in the last week. I don't know how they are getting in or why except we had had lots of rainfall the last week.

    We buy glue traps at "Wally-World" and set them by the doorway entrances. One point of entry may be the "Weep Holes" in the brick siding. I purchased some copper type Brillo Pads used for scouring pots and pans with the intention of cutting them up and inserting them in the exterior weep-holes to limit entry.

    I used to use those glue traps in Maryland because of the huge spider crickets that were always coming into my apartment. I had those and sometimes slugs crawling around.

    Glad I don't live there anymore. :D

    My niece, growing up in Kauai, had one of these crawling around her bedroom for a year or so. She considered it a room mate. His name was Spidey, naturally. Cane spider. They don't bite and they eat other bugs.

    Yah. I think ours are just plain dog spiders. No howling but they do bark a lot...bad breath too...

    my guess is your place must have pretty low humidity atm so they tracked the water to the tub and got trapped in there

    Spiders overwhelmingly do more FOR man than against him.

    grown-ass men scared of little bugs ! :lol:

    glue traps are barbaric

    if you live in a place that has spiders that will bite and hurt you, fine . Kill away.

    LOL...glue traps may be barbaric...but a tragic irony for a web-spinner don't you think?

    They say that, roughly, there are a million spiders per acre of land.
