    Default Yikes....

    Found this in my house yesterday. Was up on the rafters and I happened to spot it. I have found about 1 a year in the house but this one was by far the biggest. Sorry about the photo, this is the "after" pic, had I been thinking I would have taken a "before" pic

    That is usually my philosophy, I could not get this one to exit the house and getting him from the rafter meant a hard swat with the broom.

    My son killed on in his bedroom a month or so back.... Ahhhh him and the girls came in a tellin' me it was a "Picka Caballo" and could kill a Cow or a Horse with a single bite..... I knocked the wind out of their sails when I looked it up and made them read it to me, I was a bit surprised myself.... With these spiders in all of recorded history there has not been a single human fatality attributed to this species.....

    But I would have killed the basturd too... It was blaintely trasspassing WITHOUT permission and could have caused undue stress on any one in the house legaly... Therefore... I would STAND MY GROUND...

    I had a girl tell me once that American money was only 6 inches long. I can't remember how that got into the conversation.

    I'm with acc. They're cute and furry, and eat nasty things, saving you the effort.
