Some of the spiders I get here in this apartment come close to that size, although they're water spiders with the long spindly legs. There was one that was in my bathtub back in May that was a biggie - its body minus the legs was about the size of a walnut, and its legs made it about as big as my open hand, and it was just sitting in the middle of the tub.

Now normally I don't bother the spiders - I live near water and there's lots of bugs, and the spiders keep the flies and fleas down. But when it's that big, and it's just hanging out in my tub staring at me... Sorry, man.

I grabbed a towel and smashed it against the tub bottom and stomped it around a few times, trying to make sure it didn't escape. After the adrenaline rush (yeah, I'm a wimp), I sat down for a minute, then went back to collect the towel. The spider had actually survived my attack, crawled out from under the towel, and kept going until it expires about a foot away. It was like a freaking horror movie.

So I scooped the whole thing up and put into the washer, on hot water with maximum agitation and multiple rinses. And I washed that towel 3 times because after the second time I looked in and I still saw a leg...

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.

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.

Once when I was about 12 we were living in an apartment in Kona and came home one night. I went up to my 10 gallon fish tank and was watching my fish. Slowly my brain realized something was wrong. On the back side of the tank there was a huntsman spider being magnified by the water. There was much excitement squishing it.

/later the apartment had hundreds of baby huntsman running around so it probably left an egg sack behind as a present.

"It was snapped dragging its dinner into a dark bathroom crevice"

Uh, yeah, if you have a crevice in your bathroom big enough for a huntsman to drag a frog into it you should probably think about doing something about that crevice.

New Rising Sun: cgremlin: 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.

For the curious, I looked up a clip.  They practically teleport they're so quick.  I live with my mom do not want.

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?

Looked like an averager Huntsman.  They, ah, hunt down their food, and they are big enough to eat frogs, among other things that side.  C'mon, farkers, this is the goddamn clock spider, sans clock.
