Default Another "Name That Spider" Thread...

Found this badboy in the front of my house, dangerously close to the front windows... He's About 2 inches long.

Million dollar question is, Should I be worried or is it harmless?

I have two dogs and a pregnant wife in the house, so if I gotta take care of business with this guy, then game on!

Anyone?

I believe it is a type of Orb Spider. Had one last year, gnarly things!

Are you seriously worried it will break in and assault your dogs and wife? Leave it alone, it will kill some bugs and then die. Spiders not in my house get a pass. Spiders in my house, such as the 3 in long wolf spider last night, sadly must go.

I am deathly afraid of spiders.

Yesterday I parked at school and i look over to find a nickel size spider on my dash under the vent by the steering wheel. I almost had an anurism. My heart immediately jumped to about 150 bpm. I slowly moved my hand away to get something to kill him with. As I did, it turned toward me and looked up at me.

*SHUDDERS*

I'm such a bitch.

If I remember correctly, there are only two spiders to be worried about in the US. The others can cause anoyance, but nothing too serious.

Where are these two spiders? You'd think someone would just kill them both and be done with it.

I largely agree, but if they are dumb enough to build a web that is "in my path" for where ever i travel in and around the house, they get the spray. I have these quarter-sized brown spiders that seem to be prevalent enough that every couple weeks there is a new web in my way somewhere. The suckers are brazen (or stupid) enough to build a web the size of a manhole cover in places i commonly walk. Most recently i had one build one just hovering over the hedge row on the fence adjacent to my driveway and my house is about 10 feet away from that hedge. The neighbors house is about 6 feet on the other side of the fence. The SOB actually strung tether lines spanning that 16+ foot span to anchor its web. It was like fishing line it was so strong and thick! Had i ridden my my bike into that, i think it would have clothesline'd me off. They're always building these big webs along side my garage where i have to walk to get to the garbage cans and sometimes off the clothesline where i would walk to get to the hose. I think they're trying to catch me!

Yes, in fact I am.

I've had the dogs get bit before and they're faces got so swollen they could hardly see. And it goes without saying... the vet bill was not pretty.

On the topic of my wife, I've found myself extremely protective since the pregnancy. And I FULLY admit this is taking it too far, but I can't help it.

Anywho, I will name the spider with the help of OT, and it will live out the rest of it's freaky life without harm from me.
