OPkay, granted, me and the P-Vine are livin' in a construction site but these danged spiders is everywhere and I'm gettin' just a little tired of capturin' them and takin' 'um back out side...

Wouldn't be as bad if they was small but they all seem to be the same species, brownish to black with a light stripe down their back and they are about 1 1/2 inches from end of front leg to end of back leg... Ain't been bit by none though the smller spiders have bites the hound outta both of us...

Anyone have any ideas on stuff that will keep them out or at least make the house less attractive to them???

It's a sign of a bad winter a-comin'. The spiders are all trying to get indoors where they'll be warm. Gonna be snow and ice and hail and sleet and freezing rain and blizzards and glaciers. Them spiders are tryin' to get out of the path of the southerly migration of the mastodons.

Or maybe not. Could be a sign of a mild winter approaching.

Has to be one or the other. Has to be.



Have you tried insecticide? It's no longer a hangin' offense in Virginia.

His description sounds like a wolf spider. They're fast, but interesting.

I called the local organic gardening guy on his program one Sunday morning (on a local radio talk show) and asked how to keep the tarantulas outside. He said that cedar mulch is reputed to repel spiders. So you might want to find a few bags and simply run a 12-24 inch strip of it around the house foundation to see if that works. I think it has here. I can find their spider holes in the yard easily enough, but I've only had to catch one in the house this year and none last year (and this year's got in by a fluke, under the bottom of a screen door when the main door was left open for a while).

The wolf spider won't hurt you but I'm a little bit worried about your spider bites from the little spider. The little brown recluse gives a nasty bite that can get very ugly.

I hope you don't have a sensitive stomach!

Should never have watched 'Arachnophobia' yesterday.......

Spiders only come into clean houses, they don't like dirt because it attracts entirely the wrong class of fly; but yes, they're coming in because it's getting colder outside and they're looking for a warmer spot to winter in. We've had a couple of the big, brown, hairy legged variety appear, only to be eaten by a cat.... However, the garden has been full of Garden Orb spiders since August - the most amazing webs that have stretched a clear 6ft across the pathway and one that was right across the back door. They've never spun so big that early so I'm expecting a rough winter.

And those brown recluses are just downright nasty!

I am aware that spiders do lots of good in the world. But I do not want them in the place I live, so I spray with Raid and poison the little f*ckers. Had abput four bites last year and that is four too many.

The Brown Recluse often gets the blame for some really nasty bites in Alaska, even by doctors, but the experts say that there is no record of a Brown Recluse ever coming this far north and that the culprit is likely the Hobo Spider. Any case, I've seen a couple of really gruesome effects on several people. The area can turn necroptic so that a deep chunk of flesh will eventually fall out. A Chicago friend of mine had that experience in Haines in Southeast Alaska. If I'm not mistaken, the only medication the doctor gave her was Benedryl to combat the itching.

I heard recently (but can't remember where, although it was an authoritative source) that we are NEVER more than three feet from a spider. Remember that all G-d's chilluns got a purpose and a right to live. And spiders are some of those children.

Being the "Deckman" ... (a deck builder) ... spiders and I have daily contact. Many of my deck projects start with a rotten deck tearout and disposal, and that's AFTER I have to move the old wood pile that's been resting against the rotten posts for years. And being the craftsman I am, I simply cannot wear gloves when I work. I must feel the wood I'm working with.

I get bit probably once a month. I've only had one serious bite, and I think it was a black widow. I've seen three brown recluse bites. One was my cousin, he lived, the other two died.

Having said that, I still feel gentle toward the creatures. As I'm ripping and tearing out a deck, I see them running and scurrying away. I try to give them time to do just that. After all, I'm the one attacking them.

Once in a while I'll run into a very aggresive and large spider that will attack me. He'll leap at me and won't take "NO" for an answer. Then I just use my hammer and move on.

But, never take a spider bite for granted. I've seen two men die from them. CHEERS, Bob(deckman)Nelson

There ARE special sprays you can buy to spray the perimiter of your house. Be sure and get all the thresholds as that's where most spiders enter. If you have pets that go in and out, you need to watch them as they'll get it on their feet and then into their bodies. Bob

In my workshop I cleared all the spiders away ( ok ok I got my partner to evict them, I admit) then installed the ultrasonic mouse repeller plug I got off Ebay, 3 weeks ago. So far, no spider has come back in , although it's the time of year they usually come in. Maybe it's working......the dog don't mind it either. No biting spiders in the UK here , the sight of them just makes me feel unwell...

All spiders bite!!!! We just don't have any particularly poisonous ones in the UK.

I've got a doodad that has foot long tube and a small extractor fan at the bottom, you suck up the spider and then throw it out. We only have problems with the really big ones that won't fit in the tube...........

I may have a go on the sonic thingy, but what I've found most effective is checking the garden through the summer for nests and egg sacks and relocating them to the dump.
