If only there was a frantic, herky-jerky kinda dance one could do to ward off the affects of spider venom

Now worried local officials are considering spraying the town with insecticide to kill off the menace

Dude. I'd be considering nuking the whole damn village from orbit.

//it's the only way to be sure

Boatmech: Found this -
`
Original(?) Artcle from MAY 22 by an Indian paper.
`
"He said in both cases, doctors who attended the victims have confirmed they found no symptoms of
death being caused by spider bite."


2 deaths? More people in India die on the roads than that. Hell, from what I can tell, Indians die by the bushel at all times - it's just that they reproduce even faster.

You'd think that they learn that having more people on their reservations just means more people to split casino earnings with.

No wonder they made it past your perimeter... the size of that spray probably only scared off the ants.

On the other hand, saying someone was born a turd and suggesting their mom forgot to bury them is in no way crude or off-topic.

Nope. Not in the slightest. All hail CasperImproved, King of self awareness!

JMel: KrispyKritter: the council of thirteen: There is nothing on this earth that I hate more than spiders.

BugStik, as seen on TV. keeps you away from insect which you easily collect in 'fluffy' end, transport outside, smack the handle to release.
[www.as-seen-on-tv-products.ws image 94x90]

You/they wrongly assume that I want to release them. I only want to release their guts all over the underside of my shoe...if they are lucky. If i'm feeling especially rambunctious (sp?) I'll release a half a can of WD40 on them, then release a small flame to send them back to the hell from which they came in a proper fashion.


Came across a wolf spider once. Ugly huge and had no manners. Only thing I had on hand was super glue. A few drops and spidy died immediately. Just splayed out unable to curl up like they normally do when you spray them with raid...or wd-40 lol

If you having third world problems I feel bad for you son I got 99 problems but a swarm of deadly spiders aint one.

YoungSwedishBlonde: Well the first picture is of Haplopelma Lividium, which is a well known pissy spider that likes to jump at everything. But I doubt it has killed anyone.

YaY I was right!

Tommy Moo: Are tarantulas even spiders? I know they're arachnids, but I thought I remember reading once that they belong to a separate family.


WHO CARES? THEY HAVE 8 LEGS AND THEY'RE HAIRY! KILL THEM ALL LET SPIDERMAN SORT THEM OUT!!
 
2012-06-03 09:23:32 PM

Rozotorical: I have a hard time believing this story isn't daily mail bull shiat. Heavy on speculation, with no facts, quotes and no other news stories reporting it.


Haven't read any further than your post, but, that blue spider (a type of tarantula) was a featured creature in a news story last week about a bunch of new species found in 2011. It was found in South America.

So they conveniently "borrowed" that photo for this story.

So the story is bullsh*t.

My new favorite hobby is going out at night and looking for huntsman spiders in the palmetto bushes outside of my apartment. I think I might go do that in a minute.

Is this one of those "when you see it, you'll shiat bricks" things? Cuz I can't see anything but the ground...

That's a pic I just took of a huntsman spider outside my apartment. He's pretty well camoflauged, but can you see the shiny spot in the middle of the.pic? That's the reflection from his eyes.
 
2012-06-03 10:34:41 PM
Ohhhhh I think I see it.


Kill it with fire. That should be you new new hobby.

You did actually make me laugh out laud (yes I normally meant loud). Thanks!

I saw nothing but the leaves on the ground and while spots.

But what made me laugh is the couple of brandys I have already had tonight. Especially after DJ's response.

Thanks... I needed a laugh.
 
2012-06-03 11:05:18 PM
If they are Atrax (funnel-web spiders) you will need more than a canvas shoes about them. These spiders can bite through the skulls of chickens. They are aggressive and one of the most deadly poisoned spiders in the world.

To tread on one, you are recommended to wear higher than ankle length, thick leather work type boots. If you have not riled them too much, then they can be moved on a pool skimming net (with a very long handle pole) and shifted to the garden.

Good luck with them India, you can count them as a blessing from the East Coast of Australia. Welcome to First World Problems. LOL.

I hit the jackpot with myself every time. I'd say it's time for you to realize the house always wins.

Jintu Gogoi, who was one of those bitten by the spider, told how he suffered excruciating pain and nausea after being attacked, with his finger still blackened and swollen weeks later.


He can't fap to this.

From the wiki article on funnel webs:

"When biting, the funnel-web spiders maintain a tight grip on their victim, often biting repeatedly."

How would you like a big hairy black spider the size of your hand, gripping onto your face so tightly it was hard to peel it off, all the whilst biting you repeatedly? You'd likley get bitten a few times on your hand trying to tear it off as well.

Wonder if removing it would make a loud velcro rip sound?

You'd likely rip the thing off minus a few legs, throw it away.... only to have it try crawling on it's remaining legs back at you..

*scritch* *scritch* *scritch*

\enjoy

Just to ease your tensions @AbiNormal,

I have witnessed the above pictured huntsman spiders launch themselves, flap their very hairy legs and "fly" into my house avoiding the screen door, the screen door was being held open for a house guest (not arachnid house guest) at the time.

I am sorry, but keep praying, we may all need it.

I like spiders, and will go out of my way to extract them carefully and fully alive from my house, independent of the type of spider. Except for Red Backs (Black widow types) and Atrax (funnel web) types.

I'm late to the conversation, but feel compelled to point out the incongruity in:

"Experts are also concerned that the spider epidemic is being made worse by the influence of witch doctors in the town."
