Same - I used to use a postcard and a cup to remove arachnid visitors too, but now I’ve upgraded to a special bug-catcher:
Simply pull the slider back with your finger to open the green plastic trapdoor, place the capsule over the bug and push the button forward again to slide the trapdoor under the bug’s feet so that it’s captured. Then slide it back again once you’re outside to release the bug back into the wild!
Just be grateful we don’t live in the Carboniferous period - in those times there were giant trapdoor spiders the size of a human head, with a lethal set of poisoned fangs...
Right you are, and it's hard to deal with an irrational fear, you can't really use logic, because logic was never really part of it in the first place.
That is epic, I will have that playing in my head next time I see a spider indoors
Eww - I knew there were big insects back then, I didn't know about spiders that big though. May we never have that much oxygen in out atmosphere again.
I just realised that’s these pictures are from a DVD I used to watch with my brother when we were little... forever Rest In Peace animated lizard friend <3
(Would definitely recommend watching the “walking with...” series)
I've enjoyed your spider whimpering, as usual.
On Friday, I needed to drain my pool onto the lawn, flooding it to top off grass depth. Every wolf spider in Christendom emerged onto the surface and started moving in the same direction (roughly towards my house- like Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets in reverse). There were a lot, around four per square foot. It led me to comment to daughter of Bob that yes, there are a lot of spiders in Australia.
BTW, wolf spiders are great - the mothers carry their egg sacs until hatching, and then carry the babies on their backs after.
The Walking with dinosaurs is great.
I'm not following that link
...not even with a flamethrower?
Maybe if I can find a big one , but then I'd have to go out shopping for a new screen afterwards, and the spider will just be resurrect with each new screen, so I'll rather step down from a battle I can't win - Unless of course I learn how to hack and use the hacking equivalent of a flamethrower to make the link disappear forever
Only one viable solution...
