    I use to catch spiders and place them in a large one gallon pickle jar with holes poked in the lid, they will survive in such a jar very well, even mate and have thousands of little babies, as long as you feed them flies.

    I had a batch going for months, when the babies come there are thousands of them, then they will start eating each other which is also amazing, only the strongest survive.

    She's a lovely wee thing :) quite harmless, doing a good job of eating flies and mosquitoes.

    I wish I had the same mentality as you when it comes to spiders.

    I dont mind big spiders, infact i think they are cool, however the little ones that move rediculously fast into any small crack or hole creep me out.

    Spiders are great, as long as they are not biting you in bed, so fumigate your bedroom once a month at least.

    Bites from a Brown Recluse can cause you to lose your arm or legs.

    I don't like spiders inside the house at all, but outside (this is outside) they are fine, so long as they keep the themselves and don't come near me.

    There are a few species we kill on sight though... deadly or dangerous ones.

    Funnel Webs
    Red Backs
    White Tails

    Are you talking about spiders or forum members?

    Tiny baby spiders Michael, but at your age you would need "coke bottle bottom glasses" to see them.

    Had to check the right photo had been uploaded for a moment.

    She is happily keeping the insect population down on our front veranda at the moment, quite safe from birds and wandering Kiers.

    I found this little fella a few years back on a rock in my old village. Not sure if he is poisonous or not, either way - I used a long lens haha

    Looks like I'm the only one who thought this thread would be about some new Google indexing mod for xF ... :)

    I've had a non-poisonous Tarantula crawling up my arm before - oddly much lighter than they look. The landlord at the local used to keep it in a big display case behind the bar.

    The fast moving ones scare the bejoobees out of the missus - the scream from the bathroom is the usual indicator of one being present in the house.

    Don't kill them though. Grab and throw outside.

    Shaun :D
