trappedspirit: Why is there wildlife in your bathroom?


the wildlife should stay in the bedroom.

Mock26: WilderKWight: I just don't kill spiders unless they're a legitimate threat to me. Even then I try to just move them away from my vicinity (or move away from theirs if it's outside).

One time I had a brown recluse mere inches from my face. I slowly backed off, and found an empty butter tub with a lid, and managed to catch her in it. Then I took her about a quarter mile away into the woods and let her go.

It's not her fault she could maim or kill me. Nature made her that way. But she didn't try, and I'm sure she appreciated not being squashed. It also meant she wasn't pissed off and had a reason to retaliate if an attempt at killing her failed. The way I handled it-- Spider diplomacy-- that's the way to do things.

I signed a peace treaty with my spiders. I agreed to leave them be or release them into the wild, as I saw fit, so long as they stayed out of the bathroom, did not have babies, and did not approach me. My cats, however, refused to sign the treaty. One day I was sitting on the floor in my living room and this pretty big spider was heading right for me. I was wondering what to do, because I really did not want to kill him, but he was coming right at me. Then, out of nowhere, one of my cats pounced on him. Nice to know my cats had my back.


a cat will never sign anything with anyone.  not gonna happen.  they prefer to live in the moment.

cgremlin: Literally Addicted: Every time I convince myself that I should go visit my friend in Australia, I'll mentally smack myself at the idea of flying 24 hours to a place that has spiders that big.

You can save yourself a lot of time and money, and just fly to Florida instead.  We have huntsmans here too.  It's ridiculous how fast a spider that big can move.


I went to Florida once and no one thought to warn me about the spiders? Gawd.

This is where a cold climate is a good thing. I'm going to appreciate the snow a lot more.

tokinGLX: i live on maui so seeing these spiders is not an uncommon thing, especially in the shower/tub in the morning.  doesnt matter how many times it happens tho, it always elicits a very vocal "nope!" from me.  luckily they are easy to usher outside with a broom and/or a paper bag


That's interesting, I never saw them on Oahu.  Biggest issue there were the centipedes, and occasionally scorpions.

Years ago I read a Snapple cap that said you are never more than 9 feet from a spider. Ever since then I try to be at least 10 feet from everywhere.

Huh? I originally wrote "zero / ten do not want" (except typed with numbers).  Why'd it get changed to "I live with my mom"? I'm pretty sure it posted originally with what I intended and got edited after the fact?

DittoToo: We were staying out in a province of the Philippines in my BiL's open build house, no screens.  Bugs all over the place that they just ignored. There was one of those spiders hanging out on the curtain  by the table that they were ignoring as well until my wife started to freak and so SiL swatted at it with her hand and it ran off.

/Csb


The only way this could be more Philippines, is of your BiL had gout.

If you find yourself with that successful of a huntsman then you have other pest problems they are helping you with.
