Three employees were bitten by the spiders last week at the Air Traffic Control Center in Olathe, Kan

And in a stunning twist, the spiders now have all the powers of an air traffic controller.

"You're talking in some spider cases up to 400 and in large breeds, you're talking 1000's from one mom," CJ Workman with Schendel Pest Control said.

Ahh yes, the Duggar Spider. Those can be quite troublesome in large numbers.

As opposed to, what, the fifteen-legged spiders?

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Spidernado!


That is actually probably a slightly more realistic, and realistically deadly situation than a sharknado... if you had a bunch of poisonous spiders that were being thrown around at people.

None of these highly-paid geniuses could run out and pick up a half dozen cans of Raid House & Garden on his lunch break, right?
I suppose a "contractor" will have to be contracted.

Yeah, I had an egg sack or two open up one chilly night when I was staying over at my friend's place when we were kids.  We woke up, middle of the night, with thousands of tiny white spiders covering every square inch of our skin.  Eyes, ears, nose, mouse, everything.  I don't have nightmares but, to this day, I can't sleep at night if I spot a spider in my bedroom.  17 years later.

Speaking of spiders, my neighbor asked to borrow my wheelbarrow yesterday and a spider had set up shop in it and laid a big egg sac.  It was a good sized garden spider and we put her in the grass.  Sorry bout your babies mama spider.

I'd bet the spiders got him, too...

I work in the aviation industry in Olathe, and I have been on a group tour of the this facility. It is very cool (lots of CSI-like monitors everywhere). Also, my backyard is full of all sorts of spiders. That's all. Just thought I'd share.

Well, on the bright side I'm no longer sleepy.

ImRonBurgundy: Not really downtown, it's off of I-35 and Clairborne.


I got that phrase from some car dealership ad, "beautiful downtown Olathe."  It just sorta rolls off the tongue.  I realize it isn't correct, but there aren't usually too many Olathe-ans to catch me up.

/you call me out, I comes clean!

I can just imagine being a pilot heading to the airport an d you hear this.

"Flight 167, you are clear..OH MY GOD SPIDERS. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!"

Generally speaking, I like spiders.  Not because they are pretty like parrots, or anything hyper-silly like that.  They are just kinda cool, and perform a good services for all of us that dislike all those flyng insects that are always in the way.

Having said that, if a few 1000 of them suddenly came into the room, and they were larger ones, I would probably run out of the room screaming like a girl.
