This is the most terfying thing I have ever woken up to on my kitchen floor. Thank the gods for my kitty's killer instincts. If I had seen this thing moving, I probably would have run out of here in my jammies and never come back. It's freaking bigger than a quarter! Wtf, I didn't even know they grew that big here.

That's the plan

Quoting bec94:

Eek! That's pretty big! Maybe get your house sprayed in case there are any others lurking about.

I can't even bring myself to get rid of it. It's still on my kitchen floor. I put a glass over it in case it becomes a zombie spider.

Is it a wolf spider? We have those in our basement...they migrate upstairs sometimes. I don't mind until they crawl across my leg when I'm sleeping. ECK!

Lol!! I wouldn't be able to pick it up either. Try sweeping it outside with a broom.

I've seen worse...times two...in the crack of my sliding door. Spray-foamed the damned thing shut! Maybe not the best reaction but they freaked me out.

Haha!!! I HATE THOSE THINGS! We moved here (southern mo) and discovered them and I hate hate hate them. We had no idea what they were called so dd and ds (like 2 and 3 at the time) named them habeebs. Then we called them crazy jumping bugs, then they got to big for play names and googled them and we have to call them cave crickets now :( boo.


Quoting r_luvli:

Eek!

Cave crickets are worse :(

Two words: vacuum cleaner. Many a garden spider has met its end at the hose of my Kirby.

I'm not sure. I've never seen one this size before. Gah, I don't think I could sleep in my bed anymore if a wolf spider crawled across my leg while I was sleeping in it. My last cat once brought me a mouse as a gift when I was in bed. The darn thing was still alive and ran right for me. I still get the heebie jeebie feeling in the middle of the night.
