    When i was in between marriages i rented this 4 bedroom house on corner lot.I had a 2 1/2 ton stake bed truck parked in front of house.I did not know any neighbors around me, this guy from across the streat comes over to me
    one day (his arm is all bandaged up) & ask me if he could use my truck for the dumps seeing as i`m off work for awhile.I asked what happened he says he was hiding in bushes one night & recluse bit him. I said what you doing hiding in bushes, hiding from police? He said I`m an undercover narc. agent for san jose on a stake out.I said use the truck, HE said thanks & will you trim the marajana plants you got growing in your back yard so i don`t see them from the street.I removed them that night.

    You removed some "cushion money" from your backyard? Shame on you.

    The Male Banana Spider...

    from a call last week... Almost walked into him.





    I spent 6 months in field conditions in the deserts of Kuwait in'99 and never saw a camel spider.... Thank God.

    And the female. Popped the cover off a condenser at the MS Educational TV station deep in the woods, and there she was. There was plenty of room to get to the components, so I just left her alone. As I moved my hand in, she started vibrating her web back and forth about 2-3 inches! Out came the torch rig....Poof

    I've never been afraid of spiders.... until I read this thread

    Spiders were the only thing I didn't fear..., snakes, dogs, lizards.... now you've done it.

    Boss says to go tear out a furnace, he is driving to the city to pick the new one up.

    I get there, start taking the plenum down, and the A-Coil is plumb-full of wolf spider nests, and about 4 spiders are not happy that I uncovered their little home. I said I wasn't playing this game. I went to the truck and pulled out the propane torch, then proceeded to toast all up and down the coil.

    They probably all ran up into the ductwork as opposed to being fried to death, but at least I didn't have to worry about them anymore.

    Uhhhhh, Commercial workers do not have to worry about this THAT much right? I'm not in the business yet but I am terrified of spiders. I could not stand crawling through a crawl space.

    Anyway, those camel spiders aren't that big. Maybe the size of a large scorpion. They are just close to the camera.
