What the hell are those spiders down there that are the size of a dinner plate? Banana spiders? Yeah, these dudes. I don't mind snakes at all, but I hate spiders. Was down in Marco Island staying with a friends family and these dudes built webs from the gutters down to the bushes and would just sit in the middle, I saw some that were HUGE.

Orb Weavers..harmless, but ya, probably don't really want to walk through the web.



Nightmare fuel!!
I wouldn't worry about getting bit, but it would creep me the hell out!


Likewise. I respect them but they can stay away from my face.

I respect them also, but I don't want them touching any part of me.

You should have seen me stripping and running at the same time, trying to get to the shower after finding myself in a spider ballooning. It looked like I was streaking, I just wanted to get those little monsters off me as soon as possible.

Yikes!!!! That is the one thing I’m really scared of ... all spiders. That thing looks like a crustacean crosses with an ant crossed with a spider. Maybe it escaped from Wuhan lab?
I recently took a First Aid course and we had to identify some spiders. I was haunted for several months with the image of a large black widow in a tube EECk! I never realized they were so large.

Imagine finding one while doing Spring cleaning.

A few year back, I found three under the table I had sitting on my front porch all winter. Took all the furniture off the porch to hose it all down, and to my horrific surprise, I found three nice size Black Widows. Guess who doesn't put her hands in, or under anything where she can't see.

Several years ago I decided to plant a miniature rose bush inside a dead stump. I felt a sting on top of my right foot to look down to see a Brown Recluse. I knew what to do so I quickly used peroxide and scraped away as much of the tissue as I could stand. I scrubbed the area raw of any dead tissue for over a week, until there was no more dying tissue, then I let it heal.

I don't even have a scar in the area. It is not for the faint of heart, and it can be very painful, but not as painful as losing a foot.

My goodness, I will have to write that down somewhere. Glad you were able to heal that. May the healing light be always with you.

I saw some of those nesting in some trees lining the driveway to Florida Hospital. I think the exterminators has then removed soon thereafter.
