Default Tarantulas!!

Okay, so I was just posting a reply to the "Butterflies" thread and didn't want to ruin it with tarantula talk but....

Anyone else have those boogers where they live? My daughter ran into the house last night hollering about a tarantula in the yard and that it was crawling on one of the cats! She said Patches was laying in the grass sunning herself and this tarantula was crawling across her face. The poor baby (the cat) jumped up pretty quick when my daughter hollered at her. So I took a jar outside to capture it to get a closer look. They're pretty creepy looking but for the most part... harmless. I'm just not crazy about them running around in my yard! Last summer my other daughter was playing ball with her grandma in the yard and one crawled UP her leg!! EEWWW! But yes, my darling husband took the poor creature way out into the pasture and released it. He told the girls that he had a long talk with "Freddie" and told him he better not come back in the yard and scare the poor kitty and his girls. Then he said he broke two legs and told him if he came back he would break three more. He was kidding but it was funny the way he told the story. We really do value the "good bugs" we have out in the country. If it weren't for those, we'd be overtaken by the "bad bugs" BUT tarantulas are still creepy!!

A friend of mine has scorpions pretty bad at her house. They do exterminate quite often to keep them under control but we all know to check our shoes before putting them on if they've been laying around. They also come up the bathtub drain somehow! I agree.... EWWW! I've been stung by one before and I will NEVER forget that pain.

Tatumsmom, How considerate of you not going off topic on the butterfly thread. LOL.

I would absolutly die if I saw one of those. I hate spiders, well I hate any bug, insect, snakes, worms, crawly, creepy thing.

Guess I can add TX to my list of places to never live.

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry but I actually laughed out loud at that!! Not that it's funny you hurt yourself but that's pretty much how I react to wasps and bees and such. Not even paying attention to where I'm running to, just gotta get the hell out of there!! I do the same with mud-dobbers (sp?) although my husband tells me all the time they are harmless. I don't care... it flies, it has a stinger, I'm gone!

It is pure reaction, and don't worry about laughing...EVERYONE laughs at me when it comes up, and it comes up a lot with my friends and family Everytime a bug comes near me! If you can't laugh at your friends who can you laugh at

BTW, What is a mud-dobber?

OMG! I'm absolutely terrified of spiders and the bigger they are, the faster my heart pounds! Something VERY unnatural about how they look with those 8 long hairy legs and those beady little eyeballls! They are disgusting!

Then in the Amazon, they have those HUUUUUUGE ones that freaking jump in the air to catch birds! HOLY MOSES! There just ain't NOOOO freaking way!!!!

I remember being 7 years old one Saturday morning climing on the counter to get a bowl for my cereal. Went to jump down and there was a huge hairy light brown tarantula on the floor! OMG!!!! I woke up EVERYONE in the house. My uncle captured it and took it outside!

You poor thing... to have to be the butt of the jokes in the family. It's okay, we all have those things that even our lovely family can't let go!!

You know what, I don't know what a mud-dobber is really. They are called that because they build little hut looking "nests" out of mud. Usually on an outside wall of your house or inside an old tire or box laying around. I'm sure there is a more official name for them..... anyone?? A little help??

We have them here in Missouri but I rarely see one. I have made my hubby stop the car so i could get as closer look at one crossing the road. I think they are interesting and harmless. I never kill spiders unless they are poisonious and inside my house. We have wolf spiders coming inside all the time. I try to get tissue and get them back outside. I don't like killing spiders or snakes as long as they aren't harming anyone. Misquitoes, ticks, chiggers and flies are a different story!Oh Yeah, mice have to go also.

Omg OMG...I would FREAK

I swear...I think I have that phobia of spiders...I can't spell it. My husband was joking around once...there was a HUGE corn spider that made a web in our yard. HUGE yellow and black thing... he was acting like gonna push me into it...I just about clawed his eyes out. Reading your post has my heart racing. If one of those things crawled on my I think I would go into cardiac arrest. I am VERY afraid of big spider...I can handle the little ones.

My old roomie Joe and I had a pet tarantula, his name was Dexter! We used to let him crawl around on the couch with us. He was very calm.
