the way i identify them is easy. once they have fur i dont care what they are, they just need to die

C'mon ladies, spiders are our FRIENDS! They eat insects and -- in this case -- small rodents :eek:

Wolf spider is more likely the type of spider.
Brown recluse is a bit different looking.

I agree though, it's better off dead!

Whenever you get the cool nights it seems like they start to appear in the house somewhere. I agree with wolf spider, they are pretty harmless but fairly agressive.

They are quick little suckers, aren't they? Can jump pretty fair too.

I recommend a size 10 or better shoe so that you are sure not to miss them. :D

I remember taking a girlfriend out in our johnboat when I was a teenager and a Wolf Spider about the size of a softball walked across her lap. Neeless to say she tried to tip us over literally climbing up me to get away. Of course I made sure to feed that pet spider for the help.

I miss that little guy.

Got this in my email a couple of days ago...a picture of a Brown Recluse and what a serious bite can do:

Thanks for the great examples of why Terminix gets our 35 dollars a month!

That is totally nasty.

Got any pictures of the nice scar that you get to keep as a memento?
