      The cat has been finding these buggers every night for the last 2 weeks. Some are huge, I plan on tossing a couple bug spray bombs under the house ASAP. My house is 38 yr old and I have had it for 10 yrs and this is the most I have ever seen. The biggest too man they are healthy! I will try and catch a bigger one for full eerie effect.

      I just had to bomb my apartment. Between my wife and I we kill anywhere from 10-20 a week.
      Havent seen any inside since we bombed. My building is covered though. Probably because my building is directly under a tree, with some of its branches laying on the roof.

      And this bugger looks kind of like a Hobo but could just be a regular house spider. Hard to tell without seeing the top.

      I'm just thankful that we don't get the big ones here. I would have to move if I found something like this in my house.

      These buggers get huge! One ran right between my laptop and i when I was laying on the floor one day. Probably the size of a silver dollar. I freaked out and caught it in a glass. It was PISSED. These spiders are super aggressive. *barf, itches, twitches, shutters*

      thats what we have in my house and some of them are bigger than silver dollars. i cauht one last week and it mesured 4 inches in width....
      i am constantly finding these in my house. i tried to catch one from the corner of the ceiling and the wall a month ago and it jumped and landed on my arm and bit me...
      i had gotten really dizzy within 10 minutes and my arm swelled up massive. my arm was swollen for about a week. i ended up having to cut out the infected skin with a razorblade and scraping inside the tissue to remove all the toxins.
      i now have a scar.
      i believe that these are the famous brown recluse spiders that i have in my house and they look just like that one.

      also alley is not joking when she says these are super aggressive. i caught one of these and was able to catch a hornet and trap it in the jar with the spider and the spider killed the bee and ate it....

      lol, nice. I didn't know what they were. Glad they weren't the Wolf spiders I see all the time, the big ass ones. I like having spiders around though.

      another tip is take out your trash regurly this time of the year... lots of bugs like fly's can attract to your trash which means also attracting these nasty spiders

      could be a hobo. IIRC brown recluse leave a much more damage and are more south towards cali ad eastern WA and OR. i have never heard of there being a brown recluse's on thw north western side. not saying it cant happen just seems a bit unheard of IMO

      well one of the spiders that bit me the first time i caught and brought to the doctor and they told me it was a confirmed brown recluse... so we do have them here....
      we used to have black widows in my old work in the warehouse. which is in wilsonville. they would ride in on the trucks with the paaper from california and survive in our warehouse cause it was always warm.

      I used to live in San diego..... some nasty spiders there....
      My brother got bit by a black widow when he was 10. He had a black hole in the bottom of his big toe until he was 30. He used to tell me when I was little, that the black widow who bit him lived in the hole, and if I was mean to him it would come out to get me.
