Stinky Spider!

| | Comments (2)
I really don't like spiders.  I can appreciate them from a safe distance, and actually I'm generally more afraid of webs than spiders themselves - because if you touch a web, the spider will come running and bite you!!

So this spider was in our house for like three days.  And probably set off the alarm yesterday.  So the stinky thing had to go.  Caught it with a plastic chinese container and took it across the road to bother someone else.

Stinky spider!

I saw the title "Stinky Spider" in my reader and almost didn't click through -- I vividly recall the photo of the spider you posted before. The text with it said something like, "The Spider that Troubled Me Simply by Being."

He looks like he might be too big to suck up in a vacuum.

I don't know that I'd have been brave enough to try to catch him -- I think I'd have tried to herd him toward a door.

Oh he'd have sucked into a vacuum all right, but I can't kill creatures like that. Catching it in a plastic container was surprisingly easy (once he was low enough on the wall to do it) - just plonk the container over the top, then edge in the lid to seal it off - easy!
