The Wolf Spider:
Habitat: Common household pest in the fall when they are looking for a warm place to overwinter. They are commonly found around doors, windows, house plants, basements, garages, and in almost all terrestrial habitats. They do not spin a web but roam at night to hunt for food. Wolf spiders are often confused with the brown recluse, but they lack the unmistakable violin-shaped marking behind the head. The wolf spider is shy and seeks to run away when disturbed.
Oh. Really. Hmmmmmmmm. Isn't that interesting.
It sure as heck doesn't change that fact that the TWO that we've had in our house in the past week or so are now both DEAD. D.E.A.D. Why? Because they are freakin' HUGE and SCARY LOOKING (the picture above freaks me out just looking at it...shudder!). I mean, really now, where do I post the "WARNING" to these creatures that I have had it...TO HERE (see me reaching HIGH above my head...and I mean HIGH ABOVE MY HEAD) with BUGS of ANY SORT, SIZE, SHAPE, and HAIRINESS, regardless of where they want to winter or how socially benign or plague-like they are. (see me twitching? Chief Inspector Dreyfus has NOTHING on me)
So, the question I have for these UNWELCOMED and UNINVITED pests is this: Do you feel lucky? Because I am BRUTAL and FATAL with one of Super J's shoes. En garde!
AND, especially since tomorrow I am calling the PEST CONTROL PEOPLE! I mean, seriously, enough already. Sheesh.
