Brown Recluse spiders are the kings of the scary spider world. Their bite will cause so much pain and agony in your life.

After a quick google search, I discovered that I was seeing hordes of hobo spiders in my basement. We had sticky pads that caught probably about 50. Apparently they are pretty dangerous.

Saw one in my house last summer. Pretty sure my boxers from that day are still stained.

That was the one spider I killed personally. Couldn't risk losing site of where it was by grabbing the woman to kill it. Poke checked it to death with a 6 foot broom so I didn't have to get near it.

I'm not afraid of Spiders in the least. Probably cause around here they don't get very big. But I would crap my pants if I came face to face with some of the bad boys posted in the thread. And I just googled brown recluse spider bite. That is straight nasty.

Normally I can't stand the site of exposed flesh, like I'd imagine you saw in a ton of those pictures... But in a weird way, I can sift thru that Google image search just because it almost looks fake. Especially the one on the guys leg that pops up a couple times. Like the cut the size of a small pizza out of his leg half an inch thick. The thumb pick is the worst...

With my luck, I'd step on it to kill it with my flip flops on, fang goes thru my sandal, and they have to amputate my foot a month later.

Yup. I've extensively researched the brown recluse and its bite in the last 5 minutes and now consider myself an expert on them. RayP was right to poke check the spider. Don't go anywhere near that bad boy.

the quote from your link
"The Brazilian Wandering Spider is nowhere near the biggest spider in the world. In fact, at only five inches across, it is pretty small, but do not be fooled by this. According to some researchers, this is the deadliest arachnid on the planet, and it is both highly aggressive and territorial. Sometimes called the Banana spider because many are found in bunches of the fruit, this beast is definitely one to avoid"

Are you ****ing kidding me??? daddy long legs that are maybe 2" across are too big. **** that being 5" across



and then theres this

"The Brazilian Wandering Spider is a large brown spider similar to North American Wolf Spiders in appearance. Its bite is at the very least painful, due to the large size of the fangs and the high levels of serotonin contained in the venom. It can be one of the most excruciatingly painful of all spider poisonings. This venom has also been found to cause increased levels of nitric oxide. The effect on male human victims is the same as swallowing Viagra – a long and painful penile erection when it is least required"

My mom works at a hospital as a nurse and i think it was two years ago had someone come in that had been bitten by a brown recluse. She described it to me and foolishly i googled it..... bad idea.... paranoid as hell of them ******** now

I have to bug bomb our shed two or three times a summer. It gets infested with black widows.

Not the deadliest of spiders, but these things visually epitomize evil.

Whats wrong with a funnel web? Even if you answer I may not ever check this thread again so I still wont know Reading this thread makes my body itch. I have a rule with spiders, as long as they do not come into my room they can leave. If I catch any of those ****ers in my room though they are dead.
