Now this is getting ridiculous

We have been living in this house for nearly 8 weeks. Times flies when you're working your ass off for a mere pittance more than you'd get working the same hours at McDonalds having fun.

Anyway, this is not a rant about money. It's a rant about SPIDERS.

These ones to be precise.

In a mere 8 weeks we have now had 6 of these suckers inside our house/car . It's a bloody infestation!!

I cannot handle the sight of these massive, hairy, sneaky, scurrying spiders. They scare the pants off me. Give me a snake, cockroach or rat over these buggers any day of the week and I will not complain.

I can't handle huntsmen!

Tonight I'm all alone. And we've run out of insect spray. I am feeling very, very vulnerable.

Oh, that would freak me right out! We've had multiple infestations ... slugs, cockroaches, ants, caterpillars. I hate those but they're manageable. If it were Huntsmen, on the other hand, I would have broken the lease by now. I feel your pain!

BLOODY HELL! We have the same problem in my house because of the bougainvillea out back. Get a cat. My cats play with them and leave them for us to sweep up in the morning. Not very yogi like but that's nature doing it's thing. The cats find them during the night *shudder*. I find they come in when it's really hot especially. I hope you can come up with a better solution to keep them away. Maybe pest control around the house - that surface stuff??

Eep, I don't like spiders either.

I just whacked one of these suckers that was sitting on the cupboard door in my laundry with my shoe. Fortunately it is now dead.
