Nope, no cure... just run... move outta your house... leave everything behind... just run!! LOL!! When I'm in the barn brushing, feeding, or cleaning and I see a spider, I drop everything and RUN! I can't stand spiders, not even magazine pictures, youtube videos, or online pics. They always make me cringe!! Even the word SPIDER makes my skin crawl!

I've got a healthy respect for spiders that might be poisonous and I wouldn't want a pet one but I can cope with them using a 'mind over matter' way of thinking - frogs and toads however - no!

Just winging it is not a plan

Wow it looks huge. I think i'd rather deal with your snakes than your spiders!

I've never had a problem with snakes and I was happy to handle them when i was at school. I've more chance of winning the lottery than meeting one of ours wild ones though.

Its young, only about 2 feet long. I've got a "regular" who shows up every spring. He/she is about 5 feet long....as of last year.

2 feet long is big, 5 feet (plus a years growth) . I'd like to see it though ... from a distance.

Its completely harmless, eats mice, and keeps the poisonous copperhead snakes away. I'll post a pic from this year, when it shows up....usually in May. 😎😎😎

I came in from school one day and heard my mother call out, "Fred, is that you?"

"No, it's me."

"Thank heavens for that come help me!"

There was mother standing on the toilet, her pants around her knees staring at a spider who was staring back at her.

Mum had been there for over an hour!

He's got a wonderful shine and colour. If he keeps the vermin down and the dangerous snakes away, he'd be more than welcome.
