We have several regular, garden variety orb spiders around the outside of the house. I was just showing my grown daughter
how to feed them. Place a moth or ant on the web. Watch the spider home in on it like a laser, bite it, bag it, and tag it.

Must be a guy thing. She was not impressed. At all...

That's funny I usually find poisonous spiders in my shoes.

They like dark places that have little to no traffic around them.

Ive had widow spiders on the back porch (eggs under the porch chairs) out front where the water valves are etc. The one that almost got me is the one that was stringing its web across the toilet (inside the house guest bathroom) when I went in to take a leak (yeah that was fun when I turned the light on LOL)! and the ones in the mailbox..(always look before I reach for the mail) I hate widows but I don't go all girly seeing em I just reach for the wasp spray if I have any then smash em with a metal doggy pooper scooper As for snakes, the ones around here are bigger then what a widow could take out.

You usually find a lot of poisonous spiders, do ya?
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 3:30:56 AM EST
Tons of em around here outdoors. The biggest get almost the size of a half dollar with their legs extended. I watch for their acid trip looking webs and fuzzy egg sacks and smash them immediately.

No it's not, at least here in Florida. Every time we go to use our outdoor furniture we have to flip them over and check for black/brown widows.
I could go outside right now and find a few easy.

Brown widows are different. I've got a dozen on my back bay widow. Perhaps Florida's black widows are just as fucked up as its residents.

I had one living underneath the bottom shelf of a plant stand that was in partial sun for at least half a day each day.
I also have had one living on the front porch up in the upper corner by the door, even though that also receives a lot of light.
This year I had one living behind the downspout and she built a web open to full sun during the day from the base of the flowerbed up to the gutter.

When you have your house sprayed, a lot of times exterminators will spray the base of structures. The pesticides will make widows "take to air" in order to get away from it.

Just for all you arachnidphobes:


"My colleague Dr. Jenkins used to say, no matter where you are, you're never more than five feet away from a spider."
Link Posted: 9/10/2013 4:13:33 AM EST
When she saw the spider, several days after the snake find, she sprayed it with WD-40 oil lubricant.

"I carefully tipped the chair over once I realized it was crawling into the hole where the chair bolts together," she said. "I saturated the hole with a mini can of WD 40 ... It's all I could think of."

That's kinda cool.

But, the blog article was almost unreadable and the woman in question (who witnessed/photographed/killed the spider) is a typical, stupid suburban twat.

A whole can of WD-40 to kill a spider - cuz, "that's all I could think of"?

She said that she saturated the hole, with a mini can of WD40.

She improvised, and killed it. Suburban twat would have called orkin. She did good.

Roger all that !!

Once last year, my mailbox was 1/3 full of spiderweb like white cotton candy,
and gazillions of tiny black spiders one day (I hadn't opened it in a few
weeks because I seemed to always be out front when the mail
arrived )
so:,
opened mailbox, saw the pending mayhem.

fetched starter fluid, gave a quick spritz - -- and closed it up.

held a lighted Bic lighter at the vent hole at the bottom
rear of the mailbox.

BOOM like an M-80 !!!

Mailbox lid blown across the front yard - about fifty feet.

no webs or spiders seen there since !

From the article :
"When she saw the spider, several days after the snake find, she sprayed it with WD-40 oil lubricant."

I had two black widows living in my equipment room. One day I came in and the smaller of the two was dead. That evil big one must have done it.

Just think what would have happened if you got a shower of flaming, pissed off black widows from the sky?

Not that I've seen!!! I was told the same thing when I was a kid and warned about picking up pieces of sheet metal and the like that had been laying around but I've NEVER found any in that situation. BUT I've found several in the tread of tires on trucks that haven't been moved recently. BWs seem to like the deep grooves in off road type tires. And they weren't near the bottom of the tire but usually up at about the 10 o'clock position. Start looking, you'll find them!

A few years ago I found a large female BW and two TINY males on a web in on a weed about 8 inches tall out in my father's yard next to the drive way. This was in bright, sunny, HOT central Florida with NO shade within 100 feet! I pulled the whole plant and put in a jar and showed them off for a while then "disposed" of them! Female was about 1 1/4" across but males were only about 1/8" across!

neat.

I saw ones almost this big in trinidad . . . went to a chicken farm and they let them grow over the cages to eat all the flies/bugs

Several were as big as my hand (including the spider's legs)

This picture and others were sent to me a couple years ago. Supposedly this was found under someone's rarely used work desk.
