Post Maiting calls of the garage

Yes, you heard me, maiting calls of the garage. Another worthless topic brought to you by Halloween King, good for parties graduations and barmitzfas.

Has anyone ever had this happen to them, or is it just me?

I was out in the garage with the garage door openen grinding with a small makita electrical hand grinder. I proceed to plug it in put some safety glasses on and start her up, about 5 minutes into the grinding I get attacked by this big dark brown flying bug with long feelers so I swat it off of my shoulder and proceed with my grinding. What do you know that same big ugly bug just flies up and lands on my arm so I swat it off again turn off the grinder and proceed to hunt this "thing" down intending to squash it for interupting me. Well the bug was nowhere to be found, so I said alright back to grinding, two minutes into grinding here comes that damn bug again. So I shut off the grinder and wait to see if I can find it to kill it, at this point I'm kinda erked. So then the though occured to me it would only show up when I was grindin so I streched out the cord, turned it on and waited. Sure enough the bug landed right beside the grinder and just sat there untill I promptly killed it of course.

Think thats strange, not the first time its happend. I was sittin in the garage with the door open Jammin to Ozzy and doing some smoothing on my bike frame with a dremil tool. About 20 minutes into it hundreds of these 2" cricket type light brown flying devil bugs start to fly into the garage hop in crawl in however they came in they were coming, and I honestly thought it was the end of the world and the locusts were here. So I arm myself with two wet old string type mops, put three plastic tie straps to hold them together and comence to anialate those ugly cussid things. They were flying in bouncing off things hopping from the floor you name it, I was out there swingin them mops like Jet Li, screaming ever so often something like "die you little fookers!" or "sweet mother of GOD where are they coming from?!" or something of that insane sounding nature if you were inside with no idea what was going on outside in the garage. While I'm out there swinging those wet mops killing as many of these things as I can while some friends were inside watching a movie. At the end I killed all but 10-15 who limped away, i walked inside took a shower and got rid of the heebee jeebees and went to bed. Got up in the morning went ut in the garage and cleaned up the mess, i filled up one and a half 5 gallon buckets of these devil bugs. turnes out they wanted the dremil tool, not the whole human race, bummer.

Another tid bit of creepy crawly news. If you guys drive a diesel, whatchout, spiders love the sound of the diesel engine. They often build homes/nest in the vehicle just to be close to it, and they are impervious to the engine bay temperatures so be carful, only 4 kinds of spiders in the USA are poisenous, but the rest still bite.

Yep only 4 are poinsenous and i live in a state with three of them...thats luck! <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" />

I know we have at least two of 'em here in Oklahoma. Three if your count fiddle back and brown recluse as two :p Them things are everywhere here... and i dunno if they are stupid or just ballsy, but they won't run from anything that i have found. just sit there and take the shoe like a man. I even touched one with a sandle once, and he just looked at me funny, then i swear i could hear a faint "******* YOU!" and he flipped me off.... He died shortly thereafter.

I don't mind spiders, have alot of them here even some big 5" in diameter spiders called banana spiders that make webs so thick you could fish with them! Their webs look like normal ones but where they wait is cross stitch, they won't hurt you and are edible and very cool looking, but very scary and mencing too. We also have crab spiders that are small but they have shells just like crabs, some are black and white, wite and red and black and red. Then we have the brown recluse and the imfamous black widows. We have tiger spiders too that are pretty cool, they look like a small arachnid bull dog, very cool looking. Then we have the hopping spiders, they can leap over 6 ft from a standstill, they are a bit scary, but cool.

I like spiders because if the earth was spiderless we would be taken over by bugs in aproximatly three months 13 days and 9 hours. Spiders are the most helpful bugs of all. I usually won't kill them unless they are poisenous, I let them bug hunt all they want.

Monte, I've seen people who shoot them with guns so they don't have to invade their teritory, I knew a girl that sat in the exact same spot for 3 hours because "A spider was looking at her" My bro corky once found a spider in his bathroom and he walked out to the garage without a word brought in a 6 pack of foggers opened the door of the bathroom yelled CLEAR and threw all six in and closed the door and we left. Hes also the one who shoots them with a colt 1911 45. Its helerious, you'd be sitting calmly and the next second all you hear is BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! and he'll go about his business like it never happened.

Heck, if i could get away with shooting that easily, i would "see" spiders everywhere. I saw a spider on our deck one time that was green and black and about the size of my fist, legs included. any idea what that might be? I have only seen one black widow in my entire life. As for brown recluses, we got those everywhere. Only ones i kill... unless it touches me... that just freaks me out.if i know they are harmless... and they ain't bothering me, i don't hurt em. I heard once that the grand daddy long legs spiders (is that the scientific name? hehe) are the most poisonuos spiders in north america, but have so small fangs that they are harmless to almost all animals. like people and dogs and stuff.

Your sure it was green and black? It probably was a banana spider, bbut they are rearly out of their webs unless it was destroyed. Your right, daddy long legs are the most poisenous spider in the world, they are so harmless not because their "fangs" or mandibles are so small, its because they are to soft to penitrate the skin of anything but bugs.

They have a spider in Austrailia that is the size of a dime, but very deadly. If they get into your shoes they are so fast and their mandibles are so hard that they can bite through your toenail, by the time you get your shoe off they could have bitten you multiple times and you will soom there after be abious corpus

Probly was a 'naner spider, I've seen those suckers so big they had leg muscles, females ones do, but the males don't unless they get huge. Had one last year that made a web spanning my hallway window on the outside, i measure it, from leg to leg it was 7 1/8" its abdoman was 4" long, but it was a female and they have long abdomans. I've seen them eat grasshoppers and crickets and even big beatles.
