    I read a blog this man wrote once about going into his attic and finding tons. LOL It was hilarious!

    When we remodled the kitchen we tore out the walls and hundreds of those freaks came out. :/ Even the men were screaming. LOL

    ahahaha i saw one of thse in the middle of the night before knowing what they were - did NOT go well!  back home they're sprickets.  i swore it was a devil version of a cricket that got busy with a spider.

    We also get these a lot and they scare the shit out of me. They love the bathtub and will jump out of that bitch when you're taking a shit and stuck. :/

    oh good lord.  play chicken?!

    Quoting bmw29:

    Wolf spiders will fuck with you. :/ They will play chicken with your ass for a long time. They usually win with me.

    Quoting Cpdsptchgrl:

    You are very welcome! Just a simple wolf spider sends me into a panic so I feel your pain! LOL

    Recluse are found in cool, damp, dark spaces like crawl spaces, under decks, things like that. They are also found in forests (we had to watch out for them when we were in the field during basic) that are damp and cool.

    he was on my garage door when i closed it.... im not sure if that's open.  i'm glad you don't think it's a recluse though.  lordie.




    Quoting Cpdsptchgrl:

    I am confident in saying it isn't a recluse. I have spiders here that have the fiddle shape as well, that is not exclusive to the recluse. It is highly unlikely that a recluse would be hanging out in the open like that.







    Quoting Anonymous:

    That brown one is NOT a house spider. It's a recluse. I can see the "fiddle shape" clearly in that photo! KILL IT! Stop talking about it & KILL IT!! For God's sake, it's a SPIDER- SQUASH THE DAMN THING!!!





    Quoting Anonymous:

    I'll see if i can get brave and walk outside.... see if it's still in a heap by my front door.  EEEEK.  the brown one was really flat looking, it was weird.  it looks bumped up in the pic, but it wasn't.





    Quoting helema24:

     the one on the bottom is a hobo/house spider and completely harmless you should see some of those we get here in fl. the one on th etop looks more like a mimic widow than a real one but as i said in my opp i would need to see the back and tummy (torso) to know!!





    Quoting .thatsme.:

    Black widow and brown recluse?

    orb weavers?

    Quoting birthymom4:

    That is NOT a brown recluse ....I just killed a recluse yesterday.

    I have a small obsession with arachnids, I would say they may be Orb Weavers.

    Possibly if so they would be males(Females are up to 8 times larger), but spider identification can be tricky. The pictures are not high quality so that makes it harder LOL

    I cannot tell if it is hairy in the picture...

    Ewwwwwww. I'm itching all over! I hope you do not live in New England. I hope these are southern or western spiders! Good luck to you, and kill them. And get Spider spray or something else to keep them AWAY!!

    Yup, if you back up they will move forward, if you go to the left so will they....You get the idea.

    Certain details can make a HUGE difference with spiders... Like the Top picture looks fuzzy to me, and the bottom looks smooth..I Just cant tell for sure.

    I am not saying the phones camera is bad.
