A couple of weeks back I saw a female near my house in one of our shrubs that had a big cluster of young spiders on its back. We havree quite a few in my area. I can see the reflection of their eyes at a distance when spot lighting fields when shooting skunks at night doing grubbing skunk control work.. i doon't know how many times I ran over to that area thinking it may be a skunk grubbing just to find nothing there. Finally figured it out what the reflection was in our lights.

I live in a holler in Kentucky and find them in the house regularly. My wife is terrified of them.

Hate spiders. Had a widow in the work van a few years back. Went at it with a lighter and some kind of aerosol. Employee told me Iíd burn the van down. Told him it wasnít my driveway and insurance would cover the van so long as we stuck to our story. Iíll take snakes and rodents all day long. Get a spider or tick near me and Iím a little girl.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

Had the front door open late one summer evening trying to get a little fresh air in with a cross breeze.
Came around the corner and there was a wolf spider that had just climbed over the doorstep and was walking in on the tile. I walked up to him and said, "young man you just turn yourself around and get right back outside where you belong ". And that is exactly what he did. They mind really well. I guess he decided discretion was the better part of valor.

Had a hunting buddy that got bit a couple weeks ago by a brown recluse spider on the ankle while camping. It swelled up the next day and turned red. He waited three days before seeking medical help and they told him he almost waited until ok long. Could have gotten blood poisoning. Supposedly we donít have brown recluse spider in VT but I know two people that have been bitten by them here


The bitterness of poor quality last a lot longer than the sweetness of low price

We've got them. Their webs are amazing, until you walk into one at 0 dark thirty.

Picked up a 2X4 in the shed one day it had a funny looking spider on it, it had a rough gray finish to it, I shook it off of the board and when it hit the ground it looked like a hot weld hitting the cement and exploding. Turned out to be a female wolf spider covered in little ones 100s of the little suckers.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!
