Isn't he UGLY?! Meet the jumping spider. BARF! Thankfully they're not harmful, and don't bite unless provoked.
And these guys are NINJA's! They come down on their little spidey-strings and try and attack your face.
Normally I just screech like a baby until the hubs kills it for me. HOWEVER, one of these Houdini's made it into the house last night and I found him on my ceiling this morning... The hubs is in the field... That left me to kill it myself :(
Did I mention I have vaulted ceilings in my living room? Well, I do, and the little brat was about 15 feet above my head. I stared at him a good half an hour until he started moving and I had to act fast before he crawled off and hid somewhere... I taped my broom to my swiffer and smashed his little guts out. Too bad his little guts were stuck on my ceiling WAY out of my reach... They have since fallen down and been flushed to Spidey-Heaven, thankfully.
Now that my skin is crawling, and I'm sure yours is well, anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of these icky little arachnids?
Because this "little" guy on my storm door HAS GOT TO GO!
Sorry it's out of focus and sideways... I just wanted y'all to see how big and furry these guys are. This one is about half the size of the one I killed on my ceiling this morning. Maybe he's the baby trying to avenge his fathers death by swiffer!
