bugs.... am i just a pussy? :P - Page 7

spiders are very helpful.

I allways live near to the lake shore and on summer we are plagued with mosquitos.

I found that the best way to have the house mosquito free during the summer with windows wide open is simply to leave some spiderweb on the windows. The mosquitos fear them and don't get in.

I noticed that by chance one day I made a deep house cleaning removing all spiderwebs from everywhere... next day my home was full of mosquitoes....

So, I dug a hole in the backyard and dumped the possum in there and started to bury him. The bastard waited until the first shovelful of dirt fell on top of him, then jumped up and ran AT my legs. I jumped over it and he kep running away.

Possums are kind of creepy.

Holy shit, a zombie possum... That would have scared me to death. Your roomate was an idiot though.

Two seconds of sheer terror followed by me laughing at myself so hard I had to sit down. My roommates were pretty callous.

The only spiders I don't mind are the ones with the really long legs:

Seriously, they're not scary. I also had a tiny wood spider living in the dashboard of my car; he would just crawl out as I went down the road, sit on top of the dash, and go right back in again. Pretty neat but I'm not sure where he went.

I also remember I used to love the 12-year (I think?) cicadas when they were around here, and I have no problems with praying mantises, I actually like watching them just make their way around.

Other stuff, I hate. I fucking hate crickets. Goddamn things.

If it isn't seriously poisonous or disease-ridden, I generally let it be -- where I live that basically means let the spiders live and kill just about everything else but the ladybugs

I will admit to having a hate on for wasps, since they will sting my kids

Oh, and Oz is lousy with poisonous creatures of every description!

I'm not sure who the bigger pussies are here; the ones who run screaming or the ones who refuse to kill bugs .

I swear, I have spidar - the other night I'm laying on my mattress (on the floor) and I'm about to turn my lamp off when I decide to turn on my side and look up, and there's a huge, hairy, reddish hobo spider climbing down the wall, straight at my head.
We've got Hobos and Brown Recluses and even Black Widows (but it's only the huge-ass hobos that get into the house) and all 3 have exceedingly nasty bites.

Just read today that the biggest bug ever has been discovered -- an 8-foot long sea scorpion which lived 390 million years ago.
