well, this ain't a spider, but is a sculpture along the bayfront in Sarasota, down the road, just thought I'd insert this into this thread, even though it has nothing to do with it. I did remove my speedometer to repair it and found a dirt daubber nest in it yesterday morning, but that seems a little mundane considering the other posts here. does that count? this is more of an attention grabber than a busted up dirt dauber nest, right? notice the perspective of person standing there. wonder if anyone ever looked up her skirt?

Bleach in a spray bottle will kill them RIGHT NOW... armor all will too, but you don't want armor all on your paint, and its far more expensive than bleach..

Why kill the spiders? They eat the mosquitoes! Every single morning (in warm weather anyway) I climb in the Jeep and have to brush aside the spider webs. I try to carefully lower any spiders I snag onto the ground. We have black widows *everywhere*. One is always mindful when changing the blade in one's table saw. On the other hand, if you want to control spiders and other pests, chickens are the way to go! They'll clear the grounds in a week, sneaky bastards...

spiders that eat mosquitos are one thing, but black widows, hobo spiders, and the like, get the bleach bottle shower.. unless they eat OBAMA'S I'm not interested in having them around..

I had to leaf blower my house inside and out and shower after reading this thread. I f-ing HATE spiders!!!

Love the 20 minute Mexican tap dancing! I may have been known to do the same dance along with the shrill scream of a 7 year old Girl Scout in similar situations in the past. I did really well with the camel spiders and scorpions in the desert. One guy put a scorpion in a small ziploc and laid it on my shoulder. All I could see was the scorpion not the bag in the millisecond before I jumped out of my skin and did that dance!

I guess that is my biggest phobia.. spiders.. little, big, hairy, bald, I don't care what color, creed, or where they are from, I can say, if I see one, I know where its going..

The irony in this statement is that the snipe is a real creature... its a water bird and surprising enough native to north america (even though it is very rare) and throughout the world lol...

Yup, people snipe hunt here in north Louisiana. Generally though the term snipe hunt refers to the same prinicapl as the dropbear.
