    Two Iowa trantulas maliciously attacked me whilst I was filling the chicken waterer the other day. You people would not believe the speed at which this big 'ol girl can move. Granted, it wasn't graceful, but I managed to get out of harm's way before they got to my carotids. They were trying to kill me. They were ninja spiders.

    The other day I had a spider run out from under the fridge, a young wolf spider. I truly have arachnophobia. I can handle anything at all. Snakes, love them. Bugs, no problem. Scorpions, I've held them. But spiders... I do like them, I find them interesting. Just keep them away. I use to have a rose hair tarantula, held her once too, but I couldn't stop shaking the whole time and had to resist the urdge to fling her from my hand. But the worst experiance with a spider was a few months ago. I turned in the bathroom in time to see a good sized spider run down my shirt! Uaggg. I am not a girly girl at all, but I did scream like one that day.

    Quote:I believe you. They try to attack me too. I slammed the window down once when this spider came running at me in a aggressive posture, front legs raised. 12 hours or so later I opened the window, and the little jerk was there still! Ran at me again!

    I love spiders. I never kill them. I figure they do eat all the other bugs. Last summer a great big spider built a web right by the back door. I got so made when my dh knocked down the web. My fears are bed bugs, lice, fleas (blood suckers all).

    Yeah, I hope they eat the stink bugs too!! Found ANOTHER monster in my closet this morning!! Aaaaaaaagggghhhh!!!!

    It scooted out of the way of the steel toe boot I launched at it, but I stood there lecturing my closet:

    " I know you're in there! And I know you are here to eat those nasty stink bugs!
    But let's make one thing clear - I am NOT to see you! And you may not, at any point, touch me!
    You hear me?!"


    I think my husband wet the bed he was laughing so hard.

    Our garage has a lot of spiders, and the chooks have access to the garage sometimes. I can always tell when they've been out there because they come back with their faces just COVERED in spider webs! [​IMG] Cracks me up every single time!

    Then they try to act all innocent & stuff.

    Since I started giving them occasional access to the garage, however, 1 egg so far has been laid in the garage. So far, that's the only setback. They've been eating up all the spiders & that's perfectly ok by me.
