If that thing was in my house I would most likely kill it with a shotgun and fix the hole later. I'm afraid of spiders that are the size of dimes, I would have a flippin heart attack if I saw that.

Forget the shotgun! Burn the place down and move north.

No ****! I was thinking one of these two alternatives would be about the approach I would take myself!

I would have hit it with a throwing knife, granted i'm only perfect in about 10 feet and uh... 10 feet is panick range for that dam thing. I love spiders but not when i could wear them like a hat.

I mean that thing could eat your face, that's not something I can take living in my house. Does anyone know what kind of spider that is? It's like a black widow on steroids with white markings on the back.

Looks like a St Andrews Cross, the colouring varies alot and they get nice and big. But their mostly harmless just hang around on their webs and look pretty. You tend to see them alot on farms with the webs on the fence, its common for 50+ to be in one little area.

Nice pics! I usually try to capture any bugs that find their way into my house, especially spiders. I have a glass and a postcard put aside specifically for this purpose. If I see any bugs, I get them under the glass, slide the postcard under gently, and then put them outside somewhere.

Really interesting that so many people are scared of spiders. Almost all of them are actually beneficial for humans and even the bad ones hardly ever kill. There are around 10 times more bee or wasp related fatalities in the U.S. than spider-related. And those spider related casualties are usually also bad allergic reactions to the venom.
