    Angry Spiders!

    ~I love fall but I hate how I brings out all the creepy, huge, quick and sneaky spiders. I've ran shrieking from 3 just this morning.
    Wish dh was home to kill them...~

    Hubby sprayed inside and outside recently, in anticipation to the creepy-crawlies attempt to get inside this time of the year. Now all I seem to do is sweep crickets and gigantic dead wolf spiders out of the garage -

    I had a jumbo-size spider build a huge web on my clothes line overnight, and I darn near walked through it. I think the whole neighborhood heard my gasp!

    We had a cricket get into a clothes basket filled with dirty clothes and it ate holes in a number of things and left brown stains.....what a mess. I hate crickets!!!

    Uh I think Spiders have crickets for lunch, so kinda like if you have a cat, you have no mice, but you have fleas

    Ah yes, fall brings the joys of the changing colors, the apple cider and giant freakin' spiders. We have them ALL OVER, we can go out to the car, clear the spiders and when we come back (like, 2 seconds later) they are BACK. We also have a basement, which is like, spider heaven. We also have a family of giant house spiders, now those are fun to stumble on.

    We basically leave them alone, use a spider stick to move them away outside, but if they come inside . . .too bad so sad spidey.

    Most of my spiders stick to the tack room, where all the good juicy bugs are.

    Grainlady, could be worse. You could be sweeping UNdead giant wolf spiders out of your house! I used to envy states that had wolf spiders. How cool of a name is that? I've never seen one, but the name makes them sound very exotic!!

    Very cool!! Although, ironically, the mouse spider looks like a much tougher customer than the wolf spider! What's in a name, right?

    I guess I'm the odd duck here -- I LOVE spiders! Got a tattoo of one on my shoulder. I never kill them, they're too good to have around. Killing all the other nasty things that linger. I pick 'em up and toss 'em outisde sometimes, but other than that, I leave 'em be. DH and I couldn't even bring ourselves to kill some ants a year ago. Thankfully we moved before they got to be too bad.

    I don't so much mind the spiders (unless one gets in my hair [be that percieved or actual]--then it is full-on freak out time) . . . it is the doggone ants that are driving me nuts!!

    I use these around the house
    Spiders don't like them. Thus I have no spiders, no chemicals and the 8 legged wonders can stay outside where they'll do some good.

    Palooka thank you very much, I love making funnys, but was surprised by frugalfannys list of poisonous spiders, only thought their were three, in USA, and that the daddylong legs didn't count because it can't bite.

    Learn stuff in here all the time.

    Joyofsix those things might work, but gave me a backache for nothing once. Loaded boxes full for farmers market on a tip, trying to sell for $.25 each. Everyone else seem to have them for sale too, hope they did better than I did, didn't sell even one
