Who wants to rescue me? 馃槅

I can't go to bed because of a spider...

I am usually ok at removing them but this one was so big and fast 馃槶 It has gone behind the drawers right next to my bed and normally if I can't see them they don't bother me but then I thought 'what if it goes on me when I'm asleep'? Or goes on my face?? 馃槺

I actually just went back in and found it... it was still along the outside of the room, further along the wall. I actually do try to keep them alive and throw them out the window but I couldn't take any chances this time and had to flush it 鈽癸笍

@helsbels At least, I HOPE it was the same one 馃槸

Spray behind the chest...

@ozgirl512 Have you ever had any horrible encounters, or are you all like Steve Irwin over there?
ozgirl51226-30, F
@helsbels 8 legs, 2 fangs and an attitude problem!

@helsbels I'll be honest, they scare the crap out of me lol... Our Huntsman riders are harmless, but bloody big!

I usually allow one "resident spider" in my quarters. I prefer having a spider to all the other potential bugs. The spider takes care of any that get in the AC for me. So I allow it to live.
There should be no worries until it gets[i] in [/i]your drawers.....

I once shot an elephant in my pajamas. What it was doing in my pajamas I have no idea.....

Do you like your house? I mean easy option would simply be to move, otherwise we'll have to do this the old fashioned way, lolz!

@AdaXI oh I have dealt with worse in the past but this one escaped my first attempt, that's all

Unless you live in a country that does have spiders capable of harming humans, it would not have hurt you. Nor would it have chosen to walk around on you, but might have done accidentally. If you are asleep you wouldn't notice it!

I lived alongside a big spider for a few days, but eventually caught it and put it under the garden shed, probably a better environment for it anyway. I was not worried for my sake but did not want to risk accidentally killing it!
helsbels26-30, F
@ArishMell I know, but it was the knowledge of it being so close to me, that's all. I remember reading somewhere that you swallow like 7 spiders in your sleep over your life which is a bit hard to believe... but if it's true I didn't want that to be one of them!
ArishMell61-69, M
@helsbels Oh, I understand you! I don't really believe the 7 spiders story either. I think they'd have to be very tiny ones, perhaps baby ones leaving their original hatchery by floating down-wind on their very fine threads, as those of some species do.

Time for the flamethrower!
You wake up and you see it right above you on the ceiling and then it drops down lol

@deadgerbil WHYYYY
Do you want to get blocked?? 馃拃
@helsbels no 馃槄

I would but I鈥檓 across the pond from you. What鈥檚 the worst it can do, bite you? It鈥檚 not even venomous is it? Just go to bed.

I'd say he's likely more afraid of you, than you are....but the better option is move to another room or downstairs for the night.

Good luck.
Use SW 馃泴. Guaranteed protection!
No need to thank me.
