Learned a lesson and new name for my CJ7

I was removing some old bolts so I could put my new swing out tire carrier on and I had my fingers in the crossmember, when this little guy dropped down a little less than 2 inches from my hand, I think I will check for now on where I stick my hand. And my CJ7 is Black and red I think I will call it the black widow for now on. Also lucky that I had some PB blaster handy, but it is one hardy spider PB blaster and carb cleaner did not kill it outright.

Damn, I hate those things...every August I need to get my four wheeler out of duck hunting club barn and move it to the deer camp. In this process I have to deal with numerous Black Widows...they give me the heeeee beeeee jeeee beeees....but I usually win! Knock on Wood...

This post is getting me ready...I think I'll take a trip over to the Duck Club and Fog the crap out of the barn...

My wife and i just bought our first house and while doing general cleanup of leaves and debris around the outside i found a black widow up between the porch and the house, since it was like 20 degrees out either she was already dead or not moving very fast..... regardless I looked like a mexican tap dancer on her for about the next 20 mins. (just to be sure).

After going around the house again i noticed a few "ulgy very sticky" webs but they had nothing in them.....

Looks like it is time to start paying attention and learning how to get rid of and avoid them....

FYI lysol and a lighter is a great tool for the arachnophobic jeep owner

Unless I can identify it for sure I use foamy engine brite on them. If they have babies on their back it sticks them so they do not fly off everywhere and drops them pretty fast.

I had a big spider on the floor that I hit with starting fluid and it was still walking so I lit it on fire. It took another step on fire, it was a tough sucker.
