Do you really have enormous spiders and heat-seeking centipedes?

Just wondering.

NO big spider like in the Southern states, but there are centipedes....
Its the F'ing Termites that you d need to worry about. when they literally eat your house.

man, i was fishing the other week and sitting on the sand with my beer. i feel something crawling over my foot and i assumed it was a small sand crab passing by. i look down and almost shit myself. a 3 inch centipede is crawling up my foot. yes i know 4 inches is small but they freak me out. scrambled around and got it off by kicking like my leg was on fire. luckily it didn't bite me, but most important, at least i didn't spill my beer.

eta: the biggest spiders i've seen around my house are daddy long legs.

I've seen some pretty big hairy cane spiders.

Huge centipedes that leave vampire fang like bite marks and yes cane spiders are huge. I've seen some big as my hand and I can palm a basketball easy. We also have huge roaches. A lighter and a aerosol can are your best friend.

Nuke it from orbit. It's the ONLY way to be sure.

I dont worry out the the centipedes or spiders, I worry about cockroaches and their dirty little filth. People born here dont have that problem, but Ill never get used to sharing my pantry with bugs. I leave those little square traps around the house all the time and sweep little dead bugs almost daily. I dont think I could get rid of them even if I burned the entire building down, they would still live here.

Lived here close to fifty years, only bit once by a centipede. Out in the middle of a lava field hiking from one casting spot to another, took a break and leaned against a rock, out comes a blue centipede about an inch long and bites me on the flank. Damn that hurt! Cane spiders are pretty big but what makes them scary is how fast they can move, great test for your reflexes.

Pretty much all insects wig me out. I imagine them crawling into my ear as I sleep.

One thing I love about Alaska, no cockroaches. However, vampires got nothing on our state bird (mosquitoes)

First time I saw a cane spider i couldnt sleep till it was dead, then I had nightmares.

Ive been bitten by 2 centipedes and while they hurt, those quick ass cane spiders freak me out

I got a few challengers for those cane spiders...

First pic I got from a buddy, other two pics were of my fighter, took a centipede and two scorpions to do him in, and he lived 3 days after that fight.

Most people know them as camel spiders, but the official name is wind scorpion. They eat things like geckos, small rodents, and birds when theyre big. The mouth reminds me of the big worm in the movie "Tremors".

Spider, centipede and scorpion fights! I guess it helps to pass the time. That's one scary looking arachnid.
