kortex: We have a beast of a wolf spider living in our garage. It's so huge that my wife initially thought it was a mouse. It keeps the garage clear of everything. I know exactly where it lives and give it space, lol. Sometimes, when I pull in to the garage at night, the beast is sitting smack in the middle of the garage as if saying "Come at me bro" to all of the bugs. I've tried to catch it before so that I can take a picture but it's so freaking fast that I have failed every time.
SearchN: Oh, and to you farkers in HI and FL.. Enjoy.
MadAzza: SearchN: Oh, and to you farkers in HI and FL.. Enjoy.What the fark? I live in Hawaii. I've been bitten by a shark, stung by a scorpion, stung by a centipede ...

WHAT THE F*CK?I hate you for making me aware of that thing.Hey, it's not just foot-wide spider. It's a blindingly FAST foot-wide spider that moves sideways, leaps on its prey and has an incomprehensibly painful bite. Sweet dreams!
Seequinn: Bathysphere: SearchN: Bathysphere: Oh yeah, and I just found out Colorado has giant, tarantula sized spiders that aren't tarantulas. Wtf? Discovered this the hard way when I opened the door one morning, and found a fist sized creature sitting on my doormat. I actually said out loud, "nope" and shut the door. It left some time later.What area of CO are you in? Largest I have seen was maybe 3/4th's of an inch.Denver metro area. I like spiders, I'm a spider person, but a big strange spider is like a big strange dog.This thing was the biggest goddamn wild spider I have ever seen.Weird. Doing a google search on spiders in CO not finding anything that large. Guessing it was someones escaped pet./In Boulder.Probably a Giant Wolf Spider, indigenous to Colorado, usually in the Southern parts of the State, but some have been able to migrate in the hotter parts of the year. Once had one standing in the middle of the bathroom floor when I got out of the shower one late September morning (about half as long as my size nine foot). I make sure that bathroom window stays shut at night now.We do also have Tarantulas in the southern desert-like parts of the state.

SearchN: mbillips: I watched a spider putting the sticky circles on its web just this morning. It was one of those little guys who looks kinda like a bit of bird poop. I had to remember not to walk through it, though because he'd strung the web right across the most convenient path out of my back yard.This is his species, I think:[fc01.deviantart.net image 850x721]Looks like an orb spider.That being said, there are some wonderful incesticides out there you can put in/around your home that lay down a 9 month barrier. Any insect crossing that barrier will die in about 5 minutes.

CleanAndPure: Doesn't surprise me... predators usually are amongst the most intelligent creatures...... and roaches have as much intelligence as many small mammels.... remember that next time you squish one... you're killing an intelligent creature.
UtileDysfunktion: Mark Ratner: UtileDysfunktion: I don't mind the spiders so much as the house centipedes...They're creepy, no doubt about it, but I heard they kill cockroaches, so they have that going for them, which is nice.I'd be willing to round mine up and send them off to live with some nice family with a cockroach problem./might have to lasso a couple of them
danceswithcrows: Back in 1990, I was camping in the Boundary Waters (northern Minnesota) with a bunch of Boy Scouts. We were breaking camp one morning when a spider that was about 4 inches (10.1cm) in diameter ran out of the underbrush onto the tent we were trying to roll up. We tried to scare the spider off the tent--it didn't budge, but it did piss all over the tent. We all got behind the spider and yelled at it and waved our arms, which eventually made it scuttle back into the underbrush.I still don't know how a spider that big could survive that far north, since it's snow-covered ~6 months of the year. (However, I can say I made a spider piss itself in fear....) Also: Picture[crow202.org image 450x373] Spiders excrete uric acid, which is a little easier to clean off water-resistant tent fabric than urine.
