Worth Revisiting: The Itsy Bitsy Spider--NOT

So, what do you think? Only a face a mother could love? Itsy, bitsy? NOT!

I normally appreciate spiders in my house since they eat so many other nuisance bugs, but I do have two rules that apply to them.

1) Spiders may remain in my house as long as they do not get near me.
(I think that's very reasonable.)

2) Spiders are not allowed to get big. Note the size of the spider compared to the dime. That's one BIG spider.

In this case, this spider violated rule #2. It is way bigger than the dime. However, there was an exception to this rule for this spider because s/he was dead when I found it, therefore, rule #2 does not apply.

Now, does anyone see a bead in this deceased arachnid? If you do, I'd love to see it, but please do not violate rule #2. Thank you very much!

Only rule #2 applies for spiders in my house. If they are small, I don't care if they come close to me. Harvestmen (Opiliones) are allowed in any size in my house.

Oh Yuck Mallory! I try really hard to love all of God's creatures but I get the feeling the spiders don't like me any better than I like them. I wont go out of my way to hurt one OUTSIDE but inside I have only one rule - 1. Get out under your own steam and quickly or else! I'm sorry.

I haven't seen these huge ones much this season. I'm just glad about that. They can live there, but I don't want to see them or I sell the house!!!
