OMG you all are giving me the hebe-jeebies! I feel like there are bugs on me lol. but these stories are hilarious. Keep them coming
Before i moved out of my parents house, I was doing laundry one day, I left a pile of clothes on my bed for like an hour. this was after my little one was born, she was only a month at the time, well i have my mom watching her, and I walk in my room to take care of our laundry when i move a shirt and this huge as spider jumps out and runs across my bed! I ran out of the room and we slept in the living room that night. Then the next day I see the same damn spider in the kitchen. It was a hobo spider!
apparently its a reletive of the wolf spider. ick :P
Then about a year before that, I was in my bed which was pushed up against the wall, I had a bamboo scroll hanging on the wall. I feel the bed and what i thought were crumbs weren't crumbs. I look up on the wall and see brown stuff on it..I lift up the scroll and whats behind it? a fucking hole with termites coming out of it! I screamed, ran out of the room and was so freaked out i called dh (we were dating at the time) and asked if i could stay at his place lol
THEN when we moved into this house we always had beetles all over the place. we found out they were carpet bugs. wtf? i haven't had much luck with bugs, they are always around me haha.
the scariest for me was a stag beetle. I was headed out of my house and as soon as i walked out i look over at my shoulder and this bug was staring back at me. I've come face to face with lots of bugs in my life but this one was the scariest of them all
Where I live, and this house specifically, has always had a problem with palmetto bugs... at first I was afraid of them, but after 28 years of dealing with them, I am now at war... until one of the damn things flies at me... then I run screaming in terror!!!
A female red velvet ant. It was crawling right next to my DS. I had never seen or heard if one before. I trapped it in a plastic container to show my DH and a neighbor said they are common here. Oh yay us!
We have wolf spiders. I think they are mutants. Lol. They get fucking HUGE! I have also found a praying mantis on my living room ceiling once. And sewer crickets. I have no idea if that's what they really are called or not but they are nasty looking. I'll try to find a pic.
Living in a desert-country we get some FREAKY crap in our house (even though we live in the mountains to the north). We have found a few HUGE cockroaches (like the hissing kind), millipedes, and **gulp** CAMEL SPIDERS!!!!!!
