    <shudder> I had so many run in's with those growing up that they create an involuntary full body shudder when I see them.

    Since discovering this one, I have found several more. I have a newborn, so they've all been removed and placed elsewhere.

    Holy neat!!! In canada there were none of those. So when I moved here I was amazed..until I realized that they are still the creepy poison things they were in books..and then i got really scared because they arent just in books anymore.

    ^^^Yeah we kill them too. Typically I'm pretty good about relocating things, but I can't have those out there. We recently had a HUGE ass Huntsman spider (with an egg sack attached) run into our house-from the back porch. It was so big I thought it was a mouse. Initially I wanted to squash it (because I was scared) but then I thought about a million baby huntsman spiders springing out from that egg and decided against it...and then I felt bad, she was probably WAY more afraid than I was. So I caught her in a cup and brought her outside across the street.

    Trust me my husband wanted me to...a couple days after that he woke me up in the morning dripping wet. He said-you have to get it or I'm going to kill it? I had no idea what he was talking about but realized he was naked.

    There was another one on the wall in the bathroom above the shower...as he was showering he noticed it. I don't know if it was the same one, as I can't tell the difference between male and female (and this one had no sack). But I took the shower head and sprayed it down to the bottom of the shower and then caught it. THAT one was more pissed than scared. It kept standing on it's hind legs and slamming around the cup it was in.

    We get brown widow spiders and I kill them. I save wolf spiders and the like, hell even hold them in my hand, but the dangerous bugs got to die for coming on my land.

    The only good thing about living in a climate where it's cold as hell in the winter is that the bugs die and we don't seem to have many poisonous anythings around here. The only poisonous spider that is native to this area is the brown recluse spider and I've never seen one. Although I can ignore them outdoors, any spider that wanders in my house must die, it's either me or the bug. Just looking at pics of big ugly hairy spiders givesme the heebie jeebies. Just reading these posts is making my skin crawl.

    I agree.

    I'd get my dust buster or vacuum cleaner with a long attachment and suck that puppy up then flush it. NO THANK YOU!

    I seen one too many of those. At my dads in North Carolina they like to hide out in the barn, and in the shed near the ATV. And one day we accidently knocked over a cone and there was a female making her nest in it.

    I've had enough of those and big black snakes too.

    Awesome photos though

    I was helping a friend move a camper shell and caught two enormous Black Widows out of it.

    A few weeks later, one had 5 egg sacs and one had 3 :D

    I'm a total spider lover :)
