    Just a few weeks ago, I almost walked directly into a spider hanging from a thread in my doorway. As always, I carefully lifted him by the web and relocated him to the other side of the room, where he wouldn't be bothered.

    There was a wasp nest on one of the outside lamps above my garage door.

    As always, I carefully grabbed a can of Raid and killed all of the wasps. There were about 20.

    By the way, I think that was pretty unbelievable that you took that spider away from where it wanted to be. If you really respected its status as a moral agent, you would have left it alone. You would have altered YOUR behavior to avoid hitting your head on it every time you went through that door.

    You make me sick to my stomach

    Some little kitchen beetle dead in the cupboard under my sink, next to an empty beer can.

    That's him. He's dead but I don't know what his burial wishes were so I'm just leaving him there forever.

    I have silverfish in my bathroom. They hide in the crevices beneath the tub and blend into the shiny metallic chunks in the floor tiles. Always trips me out a little bit.

    I try to do shit like that too, assuming they don't pose a risk to myself, my son, or pets. We had black widows in florida. I'd kill those when found but they hide pretty well anyway.

    I last seen a moth. I shooed him outside.

    Probably a spider that I grabbed with a Kleenex and flushed down the toilet.

    Year's ago when I lived with a friend in a run down apartment building we noticed a mouse scamper across the floor one night. I grabbed a frying pan and crushed the small animal with it the next time it came running along.

    One time I had a mouse that had found its way into a tied garbage bag. No idea how. There were no holes and the top was still tied shut. I put on my shoe and stomped once. It was dead.

    I find tons of various bugs in my home all the time, most of them get the boot and a stern warning not to return, or they get zapped with my electric fly swatter, that'll teach them little bastards.

    But, a couple of days ago I actually found an interesting little fellow, merrily trotting around on my staircase. It was a spider called Scytodes thoracica, better known as a "spitting spider". Now, traditionally, spider silk comes out of the butt-end of spiders, while venom comes out the front-end, but this spider does it a bit differently - it internally mixes the liquid that becomes silk once it gets into contact with air, with venom, and sprays this cocktail from the ports at the tip of the fangs, while vibrating said fangs rapidly, to form a sticky and venomous concoction in a zig-zag pattern covering the prey, and sticking it to the surface it's walking on. Now, the S. thoracica isn't a very fast spider, nor is it very big, however, it is a very accurate spider, and it has a reaction time that is astonishing, so it can hit even the fastest spiders we know of, like our regular house spider Tegenaria domestica, and turn this larger spider into lunch.

    The first time I found this species in my home, I was exhilarated because this spider is very rare where I live, but the second time I found it, and noticed it was a few motlts smaller than the first one I caught, I realized that I must have at least one breeding pair on my property, which in turn means that I must have a good deal of them crawling around in my garden.:-)

    Why do you bump old threads?

    OT: I get these roaches in my house, the thing is they come inside and they die. I sweep them up and throw them away. Why do they come inside if they are just going to die?

    I'm not sure I'd consider adding new content "bumping", at least that's not the way it would have been perceived back in the days, and I don't come here often, so I'm afraid I might once in a while have to pull a thread back to the front page if I have something relevant to add.

    Hmm, no idea, no animal should stay in the same place when the food supply runs out, provided they have the option to leave. If you have a lot of cedar furniture or floorboards or something of the like, that would kill them by screwing with their central nervous system. Cedar contains natural pesticides, which is why it's often used as bedding in reptile enclosures (to kill off mites), but it's a death sentence if used for substrate in a terrarium that you use to house a spider or insect, etc.

    That might be the answer, but I'm kind of shooting blind here.

    PS. sorry for the delay, I must've been drunk and mistaken your "OT" for "OP", not realizing the question was directed at me.
