    First it was parasites. Now it is spiders. What is the world coming to? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Sic the Python on the spider. Or.....start throwing things at it. The monitor should be big enough to atleast scare it away.

    I have a few pages that Google didn't spider.
    Now I know why.
    The spider got loose in Thailand. It didn't like the weather here either so it got away there instead.

    Sounds like you need a praying Mantis the size of Godzilla to eat that one. Call Orkin or use a shotgun.

    Chris,

    Now you've got me humming "I don't like Spiders or Snakes"

    At least if he's that big, it will be hard for him to hide. Get you a can of Raid and just wait for him to show again. A properly thrown shoe will do the job just as well.

    Cause you want to p!ss this beast off AND give it a weapon to beat you with!

    I suggest fleeing.
    And no, I am not afraid of spiders, I happen to be allergic. I get sweaty, my heart races and I run away screaming like a little girl. It's an allergic reaction. Really it is.

    Game on!!!!

    ROFL at you guys. Shoot we've got cockroaches that could give that spider a run for it's money. And what's worse, is those big roaches fly! Nothing worse than innocently walking through your house and have one of those son of guns come flying down from the ceiling and buzz you.

    I'm telling you, the shoe approach works wonders. Even if you aren't the best aim in the world, it will usually at least maim them, so you can then go in for the kill. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I'll usually let small spiders live, as they help to keep the number of other annoying insects and bugs to a minimum. But the black widows or brown recluses have to go. Mainly because they can send you to the hospital in a blink of an eye.

    Chris, I really don't like spiders, after finding a rather large one in my knickers I'd just taken off the washing line.
    I was putting them on when I felt something papery...got them off in record time to find a spider the size of a man's hand:eek:

    I proceeded to throw boots and shoes at it, used almost a whole can of bug spray on it till it was white and it was still rearing up !

    It was about that time I started to feel really bad, it scared the wits out of me, but I did the same to it!
    So I invented the spider catcher, it's simple effective.
    Just get a large round tupperware bowl,like a cake container, cut a hole in the center, attach a wooden broom or mop pole to it.
    When a bug comes along, grab the pole, cover the bug with the catcher, slide a piece of cardboard under the bowl and you can take the creature outside;)

    LOL @ Deelz!!!

    When it comes to spiders, I usually take Mousejockey's route - catch it in a plastic container, slip cardboard underneath and set it free outside. Something the size of a CD, however... man, I dunno what I'd do. In a million years I wouldn't want to come close enough to something that big to catch it in a container of any sort. ::shudder::

    Guess I won't be coming to Thailand anytime soon... not to mention the Amazon - river, not website, that is! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I've always liked spiders. That one (The one in Thailand) sounds a lot cooler than the little weenies that live in Michigan! I wonder what I'd feed one that's so big? Tomato Hornworm Moths? Rodents?

    @MJ,

    One the size of a hand in your knickers? Now that sounds like something that could cause psychological scars. :::shudders::: It's one thing for them to be on the wall, but another thing entirely if they are cohabiting in your intimate appearal. :::shudders again:::
