Doesn't matter how carefully I calibrate the scope on my spider rifle, those darned spiders just don't fly straight.

13. No-kill spider-catching device: If you don't want to actually kill the spider, but hate trying to balance a moving spider on a piece of newspaper, this device is for you.


Why mess around with a device like that? Capture the spider in a jar, put the lid on the jar, and take it outside.

Or use a CO2 pistol - sans pellets - to push them along even faster.

I have a bush infested with Daddy Long Legs. If the branches are agitated they all run to the top of the bush in some sort of defensive reaction. Anyone know why they do this? Sounds like a shiatty plan.

Sounds like you need to do a little tidying up down there.  A shaved bush would certainly deter those Daddy Long Legs from camping out in your privates...

Of course I cut it open. This is Ohio. There are more Hedgeapple/Osage Orange trees here than people.

My grandmother did it every year since the 60's.. she said she just liked the smell of the hedgeapples.

Ever heard how the spider is probably "more scared of you than you are of it?" Well, you know how in horror movies everyone always chooses to run upstairs when something scary is coming after them?

You have your answer.

My brother and I believed in propitiation. We would catch flies and throw them into the webs outside the house.

We're we wrong to enjoy watching the spiders swoop in and wrap them up?

No! It's perfectly normal to get sexually aroused by those long legs working in harmony! The silkiness of their cocoon and the way those large eyes look at you pleadingly!

Sexual arousal to spiders is nothing wrong!


Wait? You watched it with your brother?

That's sick!

Spids in my house usually get a pass.  And this morning I saw that one had trapped one of those obnoxious little black beetles that have been appearing in my house lately.  So yay for spids.

Can't remember where, but a couple weeks ago I stumbled on something that mentioned that spiders are especially rich in taurine, a nutrient that cats need in order to keep their night vision. So I imagine that, for a cat, spiders aren't just great fun to catch and play with, but they're incredibly delicious, too.

Oh hell no. Those things are infinitely worse than spiders. Most spiders I just allow to go about their business. Those long-legged centipedes creep me out to no end.

Daddy Longlegs aren't harvestmen. Only some kinds of spiders are called harvestmen, like cellar spiders.

Nobody calls them that.

1. Use caulk: If spiders can't get into your house, you won't need to deal with them. One vital anti-spider step is to thoroughly seal up your house. Remember that spiders can fit through very small holes, so seal your ears, nostrils, eyelids, and urethra. Also be sure to thoroughly investigate any bump, blemish, or overly large pores to make sure there are no spiders hiding in them, but be careful not to dig too hard in your frantic terror, as open blood vessels are technically also 'very small holes'.

 "Daddy Longlegs" is a term that can alternately refer to harvestmen, cellar spiders and, on occasion, crane flies. Around here, it mostly applies to harvestmen.
