I have a family of them multiplying in my bathroom. We have everything in my place though. We get tons of flies and I've killed 3 crickets in the past week.

What a ****ing coincidence that this thread is here. Just went into my bathroom and turned on the light to wash my face and go to bed and out of the corner of my eye BAM ****ING HUGE BLACK FAST ****ING SPIDER RUNNING FOR COVER. I almost shit myself and ran outta the bathroom and then went back in to try to find and kill the ****er but at first I thought he ran into the shelf so one by one I removed my medicine bottles etc waiting for this mother****er to strike but no sign of him until I realized theres a crack on top of the shelf that he crawled into so I grabbed a bottle of RAID and overkilled it into the cracks so I essentially trapped him in there suffocating to death. I'm just going to assume he's dead for now so I can go to sleep.


tldr **** spiders.

I ****ing hate spiders. They just creep me out. I had my gf over spending the night a week ago or so and I saw one in the corner and was like shit a spider, need to kill that bitch and she got all excited about it saying "no don't kill it, I like spiders" and I'm just like :| "what do you want me to do with it" "catch it and take it outside?" "Forget that, what if I mess up and it falls and gets away, then i'll be thinking about it all night, I'm smashing the shit out of it". She just ended up looking away when I smashed the life out of it.

I had never even entertained the thought of "catching the spider and putting it outside". I was way too lazy to put forth that kind of effort. I was worried he might get away if I tried though, but it was more just the fact that I didn't care to even attempt it when just killing him was so much easier.

I had an epic battle with a spider one night in my basement bathroom...

I was brushing my teeth when I noticed some gargantuan hairy spider legs bulging out of a small gap in the molding. At first I thought, "That's got to be a huge f#cking spider, but I'm betting he lives inside the walls and does his insect thing out of sight... I'm just going to let him go."

Of course, while continuing to brush my teeth, I tried to look away from the area but couldn't. Every time I glanced back, he was further and further out of the darkness. By the time I finished in the bathroom (and by finished, I mean immediately vacated once it was fully exposed), this thing was looking straight at me like he was ready for a life and death battle.

I momentarily weighed the options of either never using that bathroom again or meeting the challenge. Eventually, I opted for the latter. I went back in to check on the beast in order to formulate my gameplan and, by this time, his legs were sticking out from behind a large pipe about 3/4 of the way up to the ceiling.

I did a quick scan of the possible weapons at my disposal. I decided on a water bottle and a shoe. The plan was to spray the area around the spider with a mist of water (he was unexposed besides his big hairy legs, at this point) and, when he moved away from the pipe, I would smash him with the shoe.

I entered the bathroom cautiously with shoe and water bottle in hand. I found a spot where I felt safe from any counter-attack, but also close enough to lower the boom. I aimed the water bottle on mist setting and raised the shoe high over my head. This was it. The moment of truth had arrived.

I sent the mist, the beast moved from behind the pipe and stared me straight in the face, I came down hard and fast with the shoe........ And inadvertently smashed the light bulb above my head.

Now, I had obviously enraged a massive spider with the water spray, it was moving around the room and I was in the pitch black. My mind immediately told me to flee the bathroom, but I was completely frozen in place.

Suddenly, there was a swift movement on the wall right beside my head... I acted immediately with the shoe.




And smashed him to bits. I don't know if the adrenaline gave me some kind of super vision/speed, but it was over. He was a worthy opponent.


Good luck with your guy.

You should have never used the water though unless it's an inconvenient location for you to initiate your attack. I would grab some body armor (layers of jackets and pants) and get multiple newspapers and magazines. Roll them up and throw the stuff at it.
