When I left the house for work this morning I spotted this spider eating his breadfast. Boy was he fat. I just had to take his picture. As long as he stays where he is and not in my house we will both be happy.

Yep....it was a june bug. All that is left now is just his shell. Spidie wasn't there this morning and neither was his web. Maybe Mr. Sparrow paid him a visit.

I used to have the purtiest spiders make webs around the house. But in the last few years have not seen them. I think the lizards may be getting them. I have a bunch of lizards this year. It's a funny sight to see my dog chase them. They love to run past him then cut in between his legs. It's a hoot!
Great pic!!!!:cheers:

Spiders use to not bother me but I came home from fishing saturday night around 10 and my fience informed me she got bit by a brown recluse (sp?) in our house the day before and had done killed 2 of them.
Needless to say I was up untill 12:30 that night spraying for bugs. I used some pretty heavy duty stuff and haven't had a bug in the house since.
She is a RN and everyone she talked with at the hospital on monday said the bite actually don't look too bad even though its the size of a baseball.

I am pretty suprised I have never seen any Brown Recluses around my house. Have seen just about everything else, snakes, lizards, praying mantes, mice, and even had a rat hideing under the dog house a couple weeks ago. Used to have spiders everywhere, but not many any more. Those Brown Recluses are bad news. They can really mess you up. Dated a girl who got bit by one. Her ankle swelled up to be the same size as her thighs. Bad deal!!!!

Hers never got that swollen. Thank goodness. Just turned red. I heard that if its bad enough the bite area will turn black and eat away at the skin, but have never seen a picture of it till now. They said for that to happen the spider has to be very mature and inject alot of vinem.
