      So we've got some spiders's infestations problems in our house or issues, we had to call in exterminators, which cost us an arm & a leg & a fortune. Which pi**ed me off big time there. Have you got any problems like it before?

      what happened that you had such a big spider invasion?


      nothing in my home but the usual few that come in, but when my mom was younger she woke up one night and turn on the lamp and she said the black on the ceiling moved because it was all spiders. They spent weeks smoke bombing their house to get rid of them.

      Well, we've had sweets & rice lying on the floor, which may have caused it. Or have been the cause of it.

      I can't say I have ever had any kind of problem with a spider infestation to be honest. We get the odd spider that comes in when we have the windows and doors open but that is about it. I can imagine it must have cost alot to get an exterminator in.

      Where they pretty big spiders Naiwen or small?

      I agree, I have a huge phobia of spiders so anything pretty big scares the hell out of me. I wouldn't have gone back in until I knew they where full gone lol

      lol, I saw this the other day posted on Facebook by a news site I use. I think I would up and run if I was sharing my bed with a spider but I don't think I would go as far as to run out of the house naked :giggle: he must have a very big fear saying that though I guess it would depend on the size of the spider :D

      I am scared to death of spiders... being so scared of them, I know A LOT about them.

      What I do is...

      3 times a year (spring, fall and winter) is buy (from walmart) spider-grade fogging bombs (cans you open and let fog on their own) and I stick 2 in every room, open all cabinets and so on. Close rooms off with doors, put glue pads around doors, holes, windows, etc. anywhere they may try to flee and let the foggers do their work. Every time I do this, I stay out of the house for a few days to let it air out after 24 hours of the fog. Never see a spider again but you must repeat 3 times a year, every year. Its worth the cost.

      Black widow bites could kill you if your health is bad, a child or a senior citizen. If you healthy, the bite will make you sick (like extreme flu) for 2-3 weeks. A brown recluse will bite you and the area bit will start to deterioration causing you to have to get the infected area cut out by medical personnel. Some spiders will scratch of hairs that get it your throat and lungs making it very hard to breath...

      Spiders are a nasty creature and I say kill them all!!!
