and screamed like a little girl....yes I did....right there in front of mywife and kids...like a little girl I tell ya....

I smacked myself bruisy....I danced like a guy named Tanto...I strained every vocal cord, and one muscle in my groin...hyperventilated myself woosy, and I mustered several hundred foot pounds of energy when I brought my foot and pounds down upon the spider.

On my arm. How the holy hell does a BLACK WIDOW get on omy arm you ask... here in the midlands of SC we are over run with them right now.

That is just the one you saw. There have most likely been many that have crawled on you that you didn't know were there. Black Widows and Brown Recluse spiders seldom bite. When they do, it is a defense mechanism because most likely they were stepped on or rolled over onto. They are not aggressive. Be thankful that we don't have the Funnel Web over here.

Hey asshole, that is NOT a thought I want to have, ok. Yeesh!

I have enough problem with the thought of a Brown Recluse in my shoe or hiding in dark places in my house. The thought of them crawling on me during the night will creep me the hell out.

Geesh interceptor...

the thought of it making it's wayup my leg, up my back, shoulder, then dropping down on a single strand of death string, to be spotted by me scares me all over again.

You guys need to recognize that it is a phobia. You have an irrational fear of spiders. All you hear about in the media are the severe reactions to bites which are rare. Store your stuff in plastic boxes instead of cardboard and keeping clutter to a minimum will reduce places for the critters to be. There is nothing wrong with a healthy respect for them, but try to not let them paralyze you. If you have children, it is not right to scare them and raise them to be paranoid of everything that crawls.

A fear of kittens is an irrational fear. Brown Recluses should be dispatched with EXTREME prejudice.

Irrational fear.....
I can post pictures of Ebola victims, "flesh eating" bacteria victims, snake bite victims, car accidents, plane crashes, nuclear bomb victims... all day long. It only shows what the worst case scenario is.

Check this out:

"The family collected 2,055 brown recluse spiders during that six-month period, including some they found crawling on them as they slept, or stuffed clothes into the washing machine, or picked up the newspaper. The spiders were found in every room of the house, including "high human use areas such as bedrooms, kitchen, and bathroom," according to the study.
Yet here's the most astonishing part. During the six years that the family has lived in the house no one has received a single bite. Not even one."

abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=97804&page=1



And this:

"In its native range, the brown recluse is a very common house spider. A colleague in Missouri found 5 in a child's bedroom one night, a person in Arkansas found 6 living under his box spring in his bedroom, during a cleanup at the Univ. of Arkansas, 52 were found in a science lab that was being used everyday, a colleague found 9 living under one piece of plywood in Oklahoma, a grad student and I collected 40 of them in a Missouri barn in 75 minutes, and would have collected more, but we ran out of vials to house them. One amazing story is an 8th grade teacher in Oklahoma checking up on his students avidly collecting material by some loose bricks around a flagpole on an insect collecting trip. In about 7 minutes, 8 students collected 60 brown recluses, picking them all up with their fingers and not one kid suffered a bite"

Im not scared of things that crawl. Hell, I like to crawl around with them. But spiders. O hell no! I have the worst kind of phobia when it comes to spiders. Things that have that many eyes and legs are meant to be feared! I couldnt even watch 10mins of the movie Aracniphobia! I can handle about anything else that crawls, but not spiders. I DRAW DOWN ON THAT SPIDY ASS! (my poor neighbors)

Question for you: I was vacationing in Folly Beach SC (and of course bought a huge can of black flag knowing there would be spiders around.) and saw some spiders I thought were widows. Same web, same marking on the abdomen, but these were more brownish than black. (Now Completely dead) Ive seen other widows that were black, jet black. Were these true widows or some sp. taking advantage of similar markings?

Oh yea, the last day we were there I was walking through the back yard of the place and noticed holes everywhere. Guess what I found in them.....

The brown ones are common house spiders.

Widows are black and red. Recluses are brown with a violin on their back.

This is one reason I like the jumping spiders that occasionally get into my house. Jumping spiders will hunt and kill hobo spiders/brown recluse types. Jumping spiders are also not dangerous to people. I have a strong aversion to most spider types but not to jumping spiders, for some reason. Jumping spiders are cool.

I've heard that the hourglass portion on black widows can be various colors too. White/orange/red/etc. I've only seen the red kind so far. Your body's reaction to a brown recluse's bite also varies - I have relatives in OK who were bitten, and got something that looked like a mosquito bite for a couple days before going away.

Google Brown Widow. These are poisonous also.

Don't forget about the Desert Recluse and the Arizona Recluse which look slightly different than the central states' Brown Recluse.

As for the holes in the yard, wolf spiders, though fortunately not very big ones.

So they can serenade you a "Death Tune" before they kill you.

TRUE STORY: I know this "guy" who was bitten by a Black Widow. Nothing happened really other than a welt. BUT!! from that point on he HATES spiders.

THE BIGGER PROBLEM??? He made the mistake of telling his 'buddies' on a gun board that he hates spiders and now there always seems to be spider pics in his thread. Some of them even mailed his big ass rubber spiders to his house!!!

BASTARDS!... BASTARDS OF THE UNIVERSE THEY ARE!!!!

About 6 months ago I found a brown recluce in my house. I had never really payed attention to spiders. But Since I have small children now I started searching for them. I got my flashlight and would hunt around the house at night for them. They always seem to stay around the baseboards. Almost never out in the middle of the floor. They like closets stc. They hunt at night, I found alot in the early morning like 1 or 2am. I found 25 one weekend without trying to hard. I had my house sprayed, it did no good. I bought some of those sticky traps the you use for mice. I stick them agaist the wall behind something usually like a bookcase.

One night I was in bed kind of half asleep. I felt something crawling on me and slaped at it and jumped out of bed swinging wildly at whatever it was. It was a brown recluce. I was lucky, it dident bite me. Well after much paranoia and research I was left without any options. Well about 2 months ago I bought some ortho home defense. They sell it at walmart. I sprayed the inside and outside of my house along the walls, cracks etc. I begin to find dead spiders and bugs along where I had sprayed.

That stuff works. I found a big ole brown recluce walking in my living room 2 days ago. That was the first one I had seen in a month. thats my story
