Whatever you do don't do a GIS on "brown recluse spider bite".

I was lucky enough to get bit by one many years ago. It hurt like hell and left a scar. TFA didn't mention him doing anything to get rid of them.

It's an ugly apartment... a bug apartment... an apartment hostile to life as we know it.
 
2012-07-26 09:39:06 AM
Lots of bugs, huh? If there were only some way of killing those bugs... some way of committing bug-icide or something...
 
2012-07-26 09:47:24 AM
Better invest in a stun gun.

I still have a scar on my foot from one.

Most insecticides don't work well on spiders. But if you kill all the other bugs you've pretty much destroyed their food supply.

Burn the place to the ground. It's the only way to be sure.

I like spiders and am cool with them hanging around, provided that they stay away from my bed. But when we get into brown recluses and those huge farking wolf spiders, all bets are off.

I live in Arizona, near a mountain preserve. Lots of spiders and scorpions. I got a cat for inside, and chickens in my yard. Every now and then I see a sweet ant, but other than that I am bug/spider free.

If you've ever seen a chicken stalk a bug or lizard, it's about the most hilarious thing ever.

Oh HELL no. I'd rather sleep on someone's couch til the lease is up than spend a single hour in that place. Can't he make the landlord pay for an exterminator?

My wife freaks about wolf spiders. i grew up with them and was fascinated when I saw them running around with hundreds of babies on their backs. I guess that's why the don't freak me out.

I caught a brown recluse in my upstairs master bath sink a couple of weeks ago. That prompted a call for a follow up spray to our exterminator. My brother got bit by one right on top of his spine. He was in ICU for 3 days while they observed to see if the venom went into his spinal column. Thankfully it didn't.

Simple glue traps will get some of them as well. He could have been putting those down with the time he wasted AW'ing to the media.

Black widows I can peacefully co-exist with - humans aren't their prey. But no farking way would I tolerate brown recluses.

Yay Spider Thread!

I had a brown recluse that lived outside my back door in an apartment way back when I was in college. I let him be, he never tried to get in the house... Come to think of it, that apartment area had a plethora of various spider friends around. Once I found what appeared to be a tarantula, though I know it wasn't. As large as my hand, light brown, hairy, and he didn't carry his body completely off the ground when he walked like a tarantula does... anyone knows what he might have been? Anyways, he was sitting right at my front door step after I took the dog for a walk, the dog (a puppy at the time) jumped backwards when he saw him, freaking hilarious.

Also had an argiope build a web above my front door at the same place... he was beautiful.

1) I was in Omaha last year.. Gaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!!

2) Still have a scar on my arm from one of the bastards that bit me 25 years ago.

3) I would move right the fark out. Peaceful co-existence, my ass.

Brown recluse do not recognize your right to exist. Move. Out.

I dont understand why he doesnt just swat with a flyswatter, step on em with a shoe, whatever.
 
2012-07-26 10:44:26 AM
Ha! At a rental home in Garden Grove, I killed at least a dozen black widows over a 18 month period. At least a dozen.

I found that Tiki Torches work great, esp. since they seem to LOVE gutter downspouts. They also loved the cinder block "fence" between the neighbors, and that cinder block had quite a few small holes to hide in....
 
2012-07-26 10:45:30 AM
It's an 'apartment'... right?

Why the FARK does he still live there?!?!

Oh... dailyfailonline.

Now I know why.
 
2012-07-26 10:47:21 AM
We have them in our house too and have done everything possible to eradicate them. I keep having horrific nightmares about one biting my dick. I mean...you get bit and then you have to watch your effing flesh irreparably necrotize away over the next few weeks.

CAN YOU farkING IMAGINE THE HORROR?

Wolf spider most likely.

I used to rent an office that was infested with brown recluses. They are tought o get rid of. Multiple sealings and fumigatings are the only way to get rid of them, and even then, they will probably come back.

But the good news is they are called recluses for a good reason.

My favorite spider is the garden spider. My grandmother used to have giant ones in her garden every summer.

I was visiting a plantation in Savannah a few years back, walking the grounds and checking things out. Very swampy with spanish moss, etc. Those spiders were the size of dinner plates and had huge webs that were just a foot or two above your head on the pathways.

I'm not really squeamish about bugs in general, but those things are horrific!

Still not as oogy as a house centipede, though. Those things are a total horror show!

kidgenius: Wolf spider most likely.


I'm looking at GIS right now, and while some of the pictures of especially the Carolina wolf spider does look like him, the pictures that do show some amount of scale are way too small. This guy was Huge. As large if not larger than a decent sized human hand. There's a couple pics that look almost identical, but no scale reference...
 
2012-07-26 11:00:28 AM

CapeFearCadaver: This guy was Huge.


At the time I almost thought he was someone's pet who got loose.
