Sneaky study spider

This morning was going so well until The Boyf discovered that an eight legged thing was in the apartment study (I feel ikky just thinking about it). Obviously the Boyf assured me that it was harmless baby (I understand he had to lie to try keep me calm), but I saw its huge body and fangs.


Who knows how long the freakish creature had been living in the study? *shudders*

Since I almost got sick from the mere sight of it, the Boyf decided it would be best if I left the room while he wrestled the creature into a container (brave, very brave). After just a few minutes the Boyf had secured the home invader in a glass.

The wolf spider (its actual name) was gently released back into "the wild" at about 8:00am this morning.....Ok, maybe not gently..... I made the Boyf drop it from 4 storeys in an attempt to disorientate it so it can't find its way back (because as you probably know most spiders have wicked ninja skills - i had to take special precautions)

  1. Eeuw yuck!

    I had a similar experience recently. I was closing the curtains in my study when I spotted the World's Biggest Rain Spider (wasn't hard to miss). I usually use the 'catch and release approach' with spideys but this guy was so frikken huge I had no choice but to unleash a can of Doom on it. Aw man, it was horrible! I felt bad but what's a girl to do? NOT cool.

  2. What if it is really upset about having to leave its newly built home in the study? Might it come back and employ those freakish ninja skillz and dig its fangs deep into your neck? What then?

  3. I hope for your sake it doesn't come back. spiders don't really scare me but other bugs do. I know ants are harmless but I'm totally freaked out by them. You're lucky you have someone to get rid of them for you. If I see a trail of ants I spray Doom like a mad woman and then almost pass out from the fumes.

  4. Not really scared of spiders but still wouldn't want to be in that position. Am more freaked out by ants for some reason. If I see a trail of ants I go insane, attack them with a can of Doom and then almost pass out from the fumes. Hopefully the spider won't bother you again.

    Lucky for you they're only found in the U.S. - in our house only!

  14. ACKKKKKKK!

    I've gotten about five spider bites over the past couple months while I sleep. The first few would swell up a lot itch like CRAZY. Then one night while I was getting ready for back it crawled in for a bite and I killed it.

    But I continued to get bites, but they aren't as bad. I'm currently rewashing the sheets in HOT HOT HOT water and spraying the bed with something.

    Also, they never bite my boyfriend- just me.

  23. HaHaHa funny tale. Very brave indeed. I bet if the boyf had been home alone it might have been a different story. :)
