    Default Spider, gigantic spider

    I am terrified of spiders. I can barely stomach small ones. Big as a nickle and I flip out. I was picking up some things I'd left out and had this bag for vac attachments in my arms. I repeat.. IN MY ARMS!! It's a flat bag that hangs and I pulled the Velcro apart to hang the stupid thing up and there was a HUGE spider in the thing. It was so freaking big I didn't even consider it to be a spider. I thought it was part of the bag. When I finally figured it out I screamed like a retard and yelled for my son. As I was Screaming and crying, he knew the drill, kill spider time. Then he sees the King Kong thing and says he doesn't even know what to do. So I give him a freaking bowl to put on it and he asks for a bigger one! I'm talking mixing bowls here!! It took a med size mixing bowl for him to want to put on it. It's the size of a baseball at least. Looks like a damn tarantula. So now I'm hiding on the couch and there is a flippin spider under a mixing bowl in my house. My husband wants to see it before we kill it. I'm thinking, if we know how to kill it, it'd be dead! What do I do to keep spiders out? I'm not going to be able to handle this. I'm freaked out. I can't take it. Exterminators don't kill spiders any more. They kill other bugs and spiders are supposed to go away. What a joke. Someone please help me before I loose my mind!

    I'm sorry if you're freaking out. I don't like spiders myself but why don't you guys just set the little thing loose? far away from your house?

    Um, no. No no no. I don't kill them if they're outside, only in the house. Maybe I should change that plan. I can't take it. It's a fobia type fear. It's unbearable.

    With my family it's the male members that are really scared of spiders. My mom would kill the spiders for my dad (if they catch it) and i dunno who kills the spiders for my brother. One time my brother had to sterp on the brakes while driving because a spider crawled on the windshield and that was outside of the car! . Can't someone bring the spider outside and set her loose far away from your house? She means no harm you know As i said i don't like spiders but i can't bear to kill them either .

    I think peppermint plants keep spiders away. I am like you, I hate them and as long as they stay outside i do not bother them... enter my home and you are dead, all bugs - die when they enter my home.

    I kill something this big... i have no idea, but to stomp it. Maybe find a way to just throw it outside... trap it in the bowl??

    Lift the bowl a little and spray hair spray, or 409 or Carburator cleaner at him. Quick put the down back over it. I guess you have done something by now. I hate spiders more than anything. I can't even look at pictures of them!

    I'm getting peppermint plant tomorrow if I can find it. I like the idea of spraying something in the bowl after its trapped. Great idea. I panic and then don't know what to do. My husband put it in a jar and took it to work. He said it was really odd to be that big. It was too big for a quart mason jar so I gave him a gallon jar of that gives you an idea of its size. It was a wolf spider. Apparently they don't usually come in the house. Lucky me.

    I was screaming, and the F word was flying! My son is 19, he's been my spider killer since he was 5. When it was all done I started crying. He sat with me after because I was so terrified!

    I hate spiders too, I would have crapped my pants seeing one that big, then my floor would have been ruined because I would have gotten the shotgun out.
