I've never seen so many spiders as this year. Every door handle ,every pipe ,every barn has black widows. I'm talking millions. And did I mention they're black widows. It's horrible ! What does this mean ????

No rain = lots of spiders. I don't know for sure but I wonder if somehow the rain washes away adults in the spring/early summer which keeps the population in check.

On the plus side, I haven't seen a single mosquito all summer! :)

I have feed supplements stacked on palletts in my feed mill. Yesterday I was stacking the empty palletts up and there were thousands of Black widows in them too. I feel like they're crawling all over my neck right now.

I saw a TV show once where people used an insecticide to treat an insect problem, but what happened was it killed off competitors for one particular breed of spider that could either survive the insecticide, or reproduce faster or something. Anyway, it caused the population of one particular spider to explode. Wasn't a black widow, though.

From wiki. Apparently theyre good dudes

In 2001, more than 2,000 brown recluse spiders were removed from a heavily infested home in Kansas, yet the four residents who had lived there for years were never harmed by the spiders, despite many encounters with them.

The spider usually bites only when pressed against the skin, such as when tangled within clothes, towels, bedding, inside work gloves, etc. Many human victims report having been bitten after putting on clothes that had not been worn recently, or had been left for many days undisturbed on the floor. However, the fangs of the brown recluse are so tiny they are unable to penetrate most fabric.

The venom from a brown recluse spider can cause skin irritations and lesions and, in rare cases, can be fatal.

August 8th, 2012
04:40 PM ET

Drought, heat bring spiders, bugs out (http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/08/drought-heat-bring-spiders-out/)

Record high temperatures (http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/08/us/temperature-record/index.html) and rapid expanding drought (http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/01/more-than-half-of-u-s-counties-now-disaster-zones-due-to-drought-officials-say/) across the country are resulting in an increase in spiders and other bugs.

“All insects are cold-blooded, so in extreme heat they develop quicker, which results in more generations popping up now compared to previous summers,” said Jim Fredericks, an entomologist and wildlife ecology expert with the National Pest Management Association.

One spider to watch out for is arguably one of mother nature's most dangerous, the brown recluse. The extreme heat is driving brown recluses to seek refuge inside homes.

Easily disguised as a common house spider, the venom from a brown recluse can cause irritation to the skin, lesions, and in rare cases, death.

“All spiders have a venomous bite, but only a few can be medically dangerous to humans, and the brown recluse is a top concern,” said Fredericks.

The brown recluse spider is smaller than you might imagine - about the size of a quarter. It’s tan in color and has a dark spot in the shape of a violin on its body.

You aren’t likely to see them roaming around during the day - like their name suggests, they are reclusive. They typically hide in dark corners of your home, or in stored items like boxes and in closets.

“A common misconception is that spiders like to bite people,” said Fredericks. “But they actually don’t recognize people as a food source, and will typically only bite as a defense mechanism.”

A bite from a brown recluse will be painless at first. Within three to eight hours, the bite site will become swollen, red, and tender to the touch. In 95% of cases, the irritation ends there and the bite will heal on its own without developing into a more serious irritation.
In some cases, however, the venom begins to break down the cells in the skin and progress into a necrotic lesion needing immediate medical attention. This process takes about two to three weeks.

“It is rare for a brown recluse to result in death, but it can occur in children or adults who are allergic to the spider’s venom,” said Fredericks. “It best to get medical attention right away if bitten, to make sure you aren’t allergic.”

Woman loses breast to spider bite (http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2010/05/21/dnt.ga.woman.spider.bite.wsb)

Brown recluse spiders are generally concentrated in the midwestern and south-central regions of the United States.
Reduce your risk of being bitten by wearing long gloves if sorting through dark spaces in your home or moving boxes and furniture. Experts also recommend setting out glue boards (which can be purchased at your local home improvement store) to catch the spiders before they have an opportunity to bite.

It was as big as my hand

If I had had a shotgun at the time i might of started letting a few fly.

I'm not sure what kind of wasps they were, but there was a bunch that had a nest underground in a dirt hill out back. I hit that with two cans of raid foam and they were still there.

I waited until dusk and dumped about 3/4 of a gallon of gas on the area. You're right, lights out. I have done that a few times before this latest run in and if it's the kind that live in the earth, gas is the best way to kill them.

O.M.G. I've always feared creepy-crawlies.

Wow... :eek:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cd/Black_Widow_11-06.jpg/211px-Black_Widow_11-06.jpg

Its bite is dangerous because of the neurotoxin latrotoxin which causes the condition latrodectism, both named for the genus. The female black widow has unusually large venom glands and its bite is particularly harmful to humans; however, Latrodectus bites rarely kill humans if proper medical treatment is provided.





http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d7/Brown-recluse-2-edit.jpg/250px-Brown-recluse-2-edit.jpg

Due to the emphasized fear of these spiders ever since the increase of public awareness in recent years, extermination of domestic brown recluses is performed frequently in the lower Midwest. Brown recluse spiders possess a variety of adaptations, including the abilities to maintain homeostasis for several seasons with no food or water and to survive after losing limbs. Additionally, the spiders survive significantly longer in a relatively cool, thermally stable environment.

The increased abilities of the spiders to survive during times of starvation, thirst, and regulated room temperatures makes extermination of this species particularly challenging. Many chemicals which have proven effective have now been made illegal or restricted in the U.S., making the use of chemicals to eradicate the spiders impractical. Chemicals that do not kill the spider may cause disruption to its nervous system or other systems, inducing undesirable aggressive behavior

Brown recluse spider seem to get very active in April and August. I'll be honest tho, I've seen a lot less of them this year then the previous 11 years I've been doing this.

I've found a wolf spider in my apartment the past four nights. I have a cat and she ignores them. What the hell? I'm paranoid now. These things are huge.

I thought a mud dauber was a gay man. I need to do more research on your crazy country.

:LOL: That's funny.
But no, here a mud dauber is an insect like a wasp that makes its nest out of mud.

My wife got bit by one of these earlier this year and it caused quite a bit of trouble for her. Put a damn hole in her leg that took a couple of months or so to heal. She still has a nasty scar from it.

Fuck spiders!

Wolf spiders kill and eat the bugs that really creep me out, like roaches, so I typically leave them alone.

Both work, but chlorinated will drop them out of the air every time.

I had a camel cricket outside the door the other night. Thought it was a giant jumping mutant spider! Never seen anything like it. Grabbed a can of wasp spray and hosed it from 8 feet back. Kind of felt bad when I realized it was a cricket.

We have had some small fires over the years.

One the parts store sent me the wrong shit ) chlorinated) and my helper grabs some carb cleaner to take care of some oil on an exhaust manifold.

I stop him and grab the brake cleaner explaining it's non flammable and about that time poof, huge fire.

Lol, it was exciting

I found this guy in the shower this morning AFTER I was done showering. So he was in there with me. If he had crawled on me I would have freaked the fuck out!

I'm not that scared of spiders since watching Spiderman, but ironically enough i did wake up a couple of days ago to a black widow crawling on me. Shook it off but my reflexes weren't quick enough...where could he be hiding?

Nice... that's a big ol' girl. The Hogna variety. They can get pretty beefy.

It doesn't seem like it, but they're great to have around to control pests in the yard. Hope you released her, but I could understand if you squashed the shit out of it...

That one I actually released...in the neighbors yard. No way I was cleaning up the mess from squishing him.
