    I get the whole "don't kill spiders, because spiders eat other bugs" bit, but give me a break here.

    Sorry folks call what ever agency you want, but spiders scorpions fly's or any other bug insect arachnid, slithering, slinking, crawling, flying, or any other living creature this includes the species known to many as humans, not invited into our house by myself or the wife are at risk of a shortend life expectancy.

    Jon, not to worry; no spiders harmed during rehearsals or filming of this commercial.
    Main character's [spider] contract limited how many times he could be retrieved in an hour. Four stunt doubles relieved him enduring any trauma. His outdoor nephew performed cameo for releases outside structure in native surroundings.
    Corporate interference demanded female perform roles for diversity. Forty-eight women refused the call.

    Starring role was conceived with Arachnid #76590 [screen name] in mind; on the strength of credits in Arachnophobia, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Creepy-Crawly and others. He refused, declaring TV and public service messages beneath his stature, also failed the character study artwork for print advertising.
    This Soft robotic gripper - GIF-w.e..jpg would have assured lasting fame.
    Mickey's infamous brother-in-law got the part instead.

    Arachnid #76590 died shortly thereafter.
    His place of internment not known; but reportedly under his agents wingtip left Florsheim.
    Sincerely,

    If I could convince my partner to use one , they would be great. She rang me yesterday and advised the lights were on in the shed for the last few days & I had left the shed door open to boot. "Can you please go ,turn off the lights (switch beside the door) and shut the door in case of intruders/theives." "No way, there are too many snakes and spiders!".skins are all over the place & I've kept a bucket of all sorts & sizes of them for art/craft/something. At least my man cave is mine.LOL

    Redbacks, mouse spiders, bird spiders & funnel webs get a similar fate here.Most everything else is given at least 10 seconds, LOL. I generally relocate.

    Yep she laid her eggs in that nice warm ear canal. perfect hatchery for her off spring.
    If you have ever forgot to turn your boot upside down and shake it before putting it on, and been bitten or stung by something that had crawled in there you learn real quick just how painful it can be.

    Always Bang out your boots (spiders, centapedes, scorpions & other creepy crawlies).

    A chap here, a couple of years back, had a very uncomfortable foot so at lunchtime took off the steel cap boot. Doctors were amazed he was still alive but a disection & investigation of the boot revealed heaps of poison therein. They checked the funnel web spider & it was totally out of venom. He had trapped the spider facing the opposite way & could not do its thing & kept injecting the boot with venom.
    A major in our army was camped at Tin Can Bay during exercises and at night climbed into his sleeping bag and died almost immediately the coastal Taipan struck him multiple times with enough venom to kill a herd of horses. Lesson= dont roll out your bed roll until ready to get into it.

    Lucky that little guy wasn't a redback or a white tail or a cross of these venomous species
