This Author is Misinformed

Grass Spider

"Habitat - These spiders are often called grass spiders because they construct their webs in tall grass, heavy ground cover and the branches of thick shrubs. Rarely will a funnel web spider be seen indoors, except for an occasional wandering male. They are found mostly in the Pacific Northwest states. "

I have a bone to pick with this misinformed author. I have found over 15 of these rather large creatures in our home in the last week. I'm sure the rain has something to do with it, but regardless I'm not excited about it. Having one of these jump out and chase you down in the morning is a quicker wake up call than 4 cups of coffee and I'd rather be singing javaluia.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! When I was a teen and kept my clothes all over the floor of my room, I grabbed a shirt and pulled it over my head. All of a sudden my eyelashes felt like they were tangling together but it was a giant grass spider landing on my eye!!!
The horror! At least the recluse are somewhat reclusive. I say bomb the fire out of your house and start over. :)

i HATE creepy crawly things. I went to work one day (years ago) pulled out my desk drawer, and there was a HUGE "water-bug) cockroach in the drawer----the kind that fly!! I flew back on my wheeled chair all across the room and screamed!!!
We had a small tarantula (so says Sherri) in our garage recently. YIKES!!!!!!!!!!
