(OT) I know I over reacted about a spider before but

Post by jmcquow » Sat, 20 Aug 2011 16:46:01



Guess what?  Now my house is overrun with them!  Apparently the one I killed
(along with it's little babies riding on its back) wasn't the only one.  Now
they're in my bedroom.  And I tried to do the nice thing and "set it
outside" except it wasn't having any of that.  It wouldn't let me gently
scoop it up on a piece of paper and put it outside.  Damn thing runs faster
than my cat!  No, it had to get into my laundry basket.  Sorry folks, I'm
calling a fumigator.

To scoop any bug, I use a piece of thin cardboard (like the ones at the
back of paper notepads) and a wide jar or a big clear glass.  I put the
jar/glass over the bug and slide the cardboard underneath without hurting
their legs.  Then the bug isn't able to run away and off it goes outside.

Seems I can't do the right thing no matter what.  First I killed a spider
with bug spray and everyone ***ed about it.  Last night I tried to scoop
one up to put it outside and it ran faster than a cat and got away into a
nice clean basket of clothes.  (This one also had babies swarming off her.)
I love nature as much as anyone.  But I'm not going to live in a house
infested with spiders.  Sorry, Bobble.  The bugs gotta go.

Spiders don't eat Palmetto bugs.  They don't call this the Palmetto State
for nothing ;)  Think it's about trees?  Nope, it's about bugs. LOL

I'm not  scared of spiders, I just don't want them and their babies in my
house.  And it happened really quickly.

Hop, I already consulted with Terminex and the stuff they use is not harmful
to cats or dogs.  I won't have to vacate my home or lock Persia in the
bathroom.  I also won't have to stay a motel room, which I thought I might
have to.  Nope!

I understand, Jill.  Sometimes you have to take drastic measures.  What will
you do with the cats while it is being done?

That's very good, but Hop's suggestion of a bug bomb would probably be
cheaper.

the only thing I do not like is a big spider, for some reason I am a bit
scared of them.
However I have trained myself over the years to collect them up in a big
towel and then flap it out of the window.
I would not like to kill them.  Like I said before, it's not their fault I
have a horror of them and it's not a reason to kill them.
You cannot get a spider on to a piece of paper and expect it to stay there,
it will run.

Just letting you know how to scoop up the odd one without it running away
on you.  I agree you might need to fumigate.

You should be REALLY happy about this.
Spiders only thrive in a very healthy environment.
Be glad they approved of your living conditions...

It is not necessary to kill them, they can be put outside if you are brave
enough.   I am not very brave with the big ones, they are the only thing I
don't like, but I manage to put them outside without killing them now.
Maybe they don't like it as they are "house spiders"
I don't like spiders. At all, never.

You can put one or two outside, but when there are dozens or more, that is a
physical impossibility.

Yeah right... I don't want them in my bedroom.  Or in my kitchen.  Get out

Yes, that would be difficult but I would not want to breathe in the
insecticide/chemicals that are required to kill them.

*Why* is it that whenever you scare them, like my turning the light on

There is really isn't any animal that creeps me out, except one.  Of
course there are many, like tigers, that I wouldn't want to be in the
vicinity of without something between.

Roaches!  They run *towards* you when you scare them, they're creepy and
they *crunch* when you step on them and can scamper away when they're
half crunched!!!  EEEEEE-YUKKKKKKKKKKKK!
