That's not a spider.
This is a spider!

These people don't own shoes? Those are excellent spider killers.

The days are short and the nights are long in Newfoundland. Tends to bring about cabin fever.
I wish I had an Insectarium in my neighborhood.

"a spider with red markings behind the heater..."

If a spider is carrying its own heater with it, I'm outta there too!

Cmon, let the spider bite your kid and see if he becomes the Spiderman !

Mrs. Layzee is deathly afraid of spiders. One afternoon, as she was sitting on the couch, she screamed for me to come in the room because of a fairly large spider, which I promptly beat to death. Later, she told her mother on the phone about it and her mother said, "Gee, I hope there's not a nest in your couch."

Thanks a lot, Mom. She didn't sit on that couch for a year.

I startled a youth camp director once by picking a black widow out of a web with a stick. Then, when the spider crawled up the stick, I just let it crawl over my hand and drop to the ground.
I wasn't in any real danger. Those spiders are so blind that she couldn't tell she wasn't walking over a warm, soft rock.
And I do know how to identify black widows.
I've found them in the house before. My wife gets mad when I pick them up and take them outside.
Not recommended for arachnophobes.
