Spider Season?

By our-interface 4 January 2011 26

Here’s a horror story I feel compelled to share with you fellow rioters.

Tonight I got home (in Tuggeranong) from work at 1AM ( I should point out here that is the first time in just under a month that I am sleeping at home as I have been house sitting). I went in to my bedroom where I noticed several tiny black spiders on my curtains. I looked a bit closer and realised there were actually a few more than several crawling on my curtains and around the window. I grabbed some surface spray and sprayed at them then began to look around my room. This was when I noticed several spots of spiders on the corners of the ceiling and around the light. I sprayed these too ( a great distribution of noxious chemical..) and moved my curtains where I found a rather large patch of these tiny black spiders. I am severely frightened of spiders and at this point I freaked out, sprayed the hell out of the big patch of spiders and evacuated my room of my most important possessions ( ironically I am going away tomorrow so my suitcase was already packed!).

I would say there’s about a hundred or more tiny spiders crawling ( some alive, some half dead) in my room right now. The story gets better when I let you all know that after moving my blanket and pillow to the lounge (in the dark so as not to wake my Mother), I decide that I can’t really bear sleeping with the light off after all the spiders I have just seen so I turn the light on and am welcomed by a white tail on the lounge room wall. I get a shoe to hit the bugger and he falls to the floor and crawls under the couch…

I can safely inform you all that this girl will not be sleeping tonight…

We got somebody in to spray in mid-2009, and for at least the next 12 months had virtually no live spiders in the house but kept seeing dead spiders and creepy crawlies around the outside of the house. We just had it done again back in November.

Get someone in, they don’t always spray, there is a new thing I was told where they put small
bits of gel stuff around, check it out.

I understand the irrational phobic behaviour, but often killing spiders especially huntsmen just brings more back. If i see a redback inside i kill it. Outside i leave them all alone.

These phobias can be cured and its a liberating feeling to not be so scared of something so harmless. I’d look into myself.

Still i guess 100 little black spiders, I’d have probably sprayed, but still slept in my bed no worries….

Lets hope you’ve killed them all. Those little spiders grow very big, sometimes as big as a CD, then they hide and wait until you’re asleep and then crawl into your bed.

I’ve been bitten by a White Tail, it itched a bit and then formed a small red ring which blistered in a few hours, not very painful but a bit pusy. Took a couple of days to heal (I don’t have sensitive skin). All in all not a bad bite will do again A+++ spider

I LOL’d at both of these. Happy new year 😀

Cheers for your comments guys, I appreciate the suggestions. I had the early flight out so I’m sure some of the spiders will live to see another day but I’m sure I’ll be bombing the war zone when I get back on Sunday. Hopefully they won’t have reached CD size by then ha!

ps Don’t leave your clothes on your bedroom floor
