Horror Story - Avoid if scared of spiders
 
Right, I was out on the patio, and my dog spots a spider just sitting there. He jumps a bit (the dog not the spider), when it moves a little. Then he starts going mental. Hes rolling around on the ground biting his paws, trying to biting his tail running back and forth like a mad thing.

So I take him inside, and he is no better, still running around, biting himself, licking his paws, and generally getting on my nerves. So I put him outside again.

Still no better, still going mental. So I go out to the patio, and sure enough, the spider is still sitting where it was, its about half the size of my hand, and fairly plump. So I thought, well, part of the solution is to kill the big bugger. So I stamped on it... :eek:

This is where the horror begins:

Hundreds of little spiders came flying out from underneath my foot. They all start running away, or up my leg or towards Jock my dog. He runs off in panic, so I have to run off to the garage and open the car boot so he can jump in, and then I shut it, then I go and get disinfectant and pour it all over where the spider is. AND IT SPRINTS OF, it was never dead, I just gave it the push it needed to produce 100s of little spiders.

AHHHHHHHHHH:eek:

And no I'm not on drugs, and not hallucinating. But that has got to be the most scariest thing I've seen since I've been in Oz. Stamp on a spider, get thousands more. Jeez, getting to sleep tonight will be tough, I'm looking forward to the dreams.:unsure:

The dog's still freaked out. But I've got him inside, at least now I understand what was freaking him out. Mummy spider was producing lots of babies.

I made the title clear enough!

Sorry if it scared you. But trust me, not half as scared as I was :eek: (or my dog Jock, but he's a wuss, and a eunuch)

I had a simular encounter with what I thought was a lace spider. It was only about 1.5cm big, it was running across the steps towards me so I trod on it like you do. It instantly spawned about 100 tiny spiders that moved so quickly they fanned out from the splatted mother faster than I could remove my foot.

I didn't realise some spiders actually give their offspring piggy back rides, but when you think about it thats the safest place for them to be (stops mum eating them).

Those big moths seem to be the same, kill one and a thousand tiny parasites run from the dead body! Same with the cockroaches, kill one and it still manages to spawn it's young. Come back wasps all is forgiven!

That happened to me in Thailand. Was just packing up my backpack when this large spider decided it wanted to crawl in to continue my trip with me :ohmy: . So, I'm afraid I did squash it and same thing - 100s of little ones came running out. Imagine if she had of got into my backpack and then at the next stop I could have opened my backpack to them :eek:

oh, feeling a little queasy now. I do tend to try and catch and release of spray with mortien though.
The first time we came out, i sprayed a huge huntsman not knowing their usefulness, and it took 3/4 hour to die, by the time it did, i felt so guilty!
Cockroaches take hours to die after being sprayed! 7 hours is the longest i seen so far, hmm what is all this saying about me? gonna go now!:D
