Not a big fan of insects/spiders?

I think anyone who remembers my "Confessions of a Sissy" thread will know how much I hate spiders.

Thanks. I won't be sleeping now.

Ever.

I remember that thread :)

Very well written, and I fully empathize. When I see a spider or any bug, I yell or scream and one of my roommates will automatically come and kill it for me.

*shrudders*

If you dare to take a closer look:
Spider expert and animal cruelty officer Gabi Bayer said he kept creatures “that should never be allowed in a private homeâ€.

She said: “He had spiders so aggressive they are the equivalent of a pit-bull in the animal world.â€
Seems like he was either a nutcase/overconfident/suicidal.

I'm guessing the last one. Nothing like leaving with a "flash and a bang" in a sense.

go for it, it was a good read :) but i dont agree that you're a sissy.

If it makes you feel better, I used to work at a supermarket (Fortino's, you might have heard of it, not sure if they have it in OT) and there was a BANANA SPIDER in one of the banana boxes. Here's a picture of what the nasty MF'er looked like: http://www.shadygrovetrainingcenter.com/Wildlife/images/DSC00513.JPG

Now THANKFULLY I wasnt the one who opened that box, but I saw it and it was enough to scar me for life.

Whenever I see a spider in my house, I just make sure it's headed in the opposite direction from where I'm currently at. He doesn't mess with me, and I don't mess with him. We get along just fine usually. :D

BANANA SPIDERS? Holy crap if that thing bit you... Banana harvesters die every year to them because they are very poisonous!

Could someone copy the text into this thread? I'm not gonna look if there are any spider pictures.
Bevare if you have a vivid imagination, I've added descriptions of the pictures.

*picture of a black widow*

From ALLAN HALL
in Berlin
A MAN who lived in his own "zoo" of lizards and insects was fatally bitten by a pet black widow spider - then eaten by the other creepy-crawlies.

Police broke in to Mark Voegel?s apartment to find spider Bettina along with 200 others, several snakes, a gecko lizard called Helmut and several thousand termites had gorged on his body.

Neighbours alerted police after becoming alarmed by the stink.

And horrified officers were met by a nightmare scene.

Spider's victim ... the body of tragic Voegel is taken away

A police spokesman said: "It was like a horror movie. His corpse was over the sofa.

"Giant webs draped him, spiders were all over him. They were coming out of his nose and his mouth.

"There was everything there one could imagine in the world of reptiles.

"Larger pieces of flesh torn off by the lizards were scooped up and taken back to the webs of tarantulas and other bird-eating spiders."

*picture of termites*
Hungry ... termites ate body

Loner Voegel, 30, never invited people back to his "jungle" home, a small apartment in the German city of Dortmund.

Police described it as a cross between a botanical garden and the butterfly breeding ground in the serial killer movie The Silence Of The Lambs.

One tarantula had built a nest the size of a swallow?s in a corner of the ceiling.

Voegel also had a boa constrictor and several poisonous frogs from South America.

*picture of a female police officer*

Spider expert and animal cruelty officer Gabi Bayer said he kept creatures "that should never be allowed in a private home".

She said: "He had spiders so aggressive they are the equivalent of a pit-bull in the animal world."

The reptiles were allowed to roam free in the flat.

The heating elements on two tanks containing spiders and their termite snacks had exploded and dislodged the metal tops allowing them to escape.

*picture of a cobra*
Danger ... he kept snakes

Voegel is thought to have been dead for between seven and 14 days.

A post-mortem will be carried out in the next few days. But authorities believe Bettina alone was responsible for Voegel?s death.
Hope it serves it purpose, I had to replace some non-characters.

That's the exact opposite of what you should do. All household spiders should be mercilessly and systematically eliminated. I've gone so far as to buy those little sonic "bug frighteners" that chase all the insects away. They have no direct effect on spiders, but if there are no yummy insects in the house for a spider to eat...

This is in addition to having my house sprayed twice a year, of course. All spiders must die.

Ants. Ants. God I hate ants. Not fear, just hate. We're infested with the little bastards every year. Come mid-may, we just start dropping traps everywhere in the house to keep them at bay. I'd welcome spiders (of the non-deadly variety) into my house if they would aid in my little war on ants.

You have any idea how aggravating is to be typing and then feel something crawl across your foot that tingles and then to realize it's a little ant about 3 mm long? BASTARDS SHOULD ALL DIE!!! I hate them with a fiery passion that consumes my soul.

Worst is end of june or july when they start their little flying ant bastards in our backyard. Spent a full evening last year out there with a hose set to max pressure just blasting away at them as they came out of the crack in the patio tiles. Good anger relief, but I still hate the bastards!

When I was a little kid, I saw the movie Phase IV. Scared the hell out of me. That spring, we had an ant infestation in our house. I was a wreck for weeks. This would have been, oh, late 70s, early 80s.
