    I'm not afraid of spiders but I do hate them. Got bit about a month ago, first day just itchy so I didn't put anything on it, by the end of second day had a dime size infection right at the sock line. That's when I started treating it. Monday I walked thru a web and swatted it down, five minutes later a stinging sensation in right shoulder, obvious to me a bite that I was going to treat right now! Next day, I saw the suspect, not big n black, but stealthy and stripey ready to pounce. Sorry but had to be euthanized. That recent bite is just barely visible now.

    The only creatures that will not leave my area alive is Voles, moles and Copperhead snakes all other creature's I will leave them alone or escort them to another area.... Euthanized is a nice way to say it, but prefer to say "I Dispatched " it has a more "Manly" sound to it

    When I lived in Arizona, the black widow spiders did not live ever................ I planted a lot of eucalyptus plants, bushes, trees, found out the black widows leave a yard with them. No more widows!
