      Good point! But, it has been allowed in the past, and since people are mostly posting up PNW spiders...

      Funny thing was that my coworker saw a pretty big spider crawling over by me at my work today. I don't think I've seen one in our shop in probably at least a year.

      Been fighting these 8 legged buggers like crazy for the last week, i really dont care about them but the g/f flips out over just the sight of these guys. Anyone have any good recommendations for keeping them OUTSIDE of the house, or minimizing their amount of travel once they get inside?

      Brown recluse spiders don't exist in Washington, you are probably confusing it with a hobo or giant house spider. Black widows are pretty rare out here too.

      I just moved the pillows on my couch and a monster sized spider went running. I'm going to have to nuke the house.

      ^ That is messed up. I've been relocating spiders from the kids' play structure to the mulch pile constantly.

      Wrong about Black Widows. Eastern WA is covered in them. I live in a rural neighborhood about 10 miles NW of Spokane out in the woods. Black widows are all over my house. We have to be careful when getting or moving things out of the basement or garage. And I have to periodicly check the kid's outdoor play sets for BW spiders. I generally find between 5-10 spiders a month mostly during the summer session. They'll migrate indoors once the temperature drops in the fall (about now). I'll take pictures next time and post them. Hell, I just killed one yesterday in my garage.

      And my wife works are local ER dept as a charge nurse. She generally sees a couple BW bites a month, usually younger kids. Very painful bite because it causes severe muscle pain and cramping. But you won't die from it. You're more likely to die from a bad reaction to the anit-venom they give you to treat the bite.

      When I was in the ER myself last week someone else came in with a hobo spider bite... we could hear the nurses talking about how awful it was and almost made them vomit. I would imagine it takes a lot to turn an ER nurse's stomach.

      I used to think that, too... just because it was what everyone said. Now I know someone in the exterminator business, and I know better. According to Wikipedia (for what it is worth) the Hobo actually was introduced to this country by way of Seattle, and has spread out from there.

It is believed to have first appeared in the port city of Seattle sometime before the 1930s.[3] There is speculation that it arrived as eggs in commercial agricultural shipments from Europe, since isolated adults in shipments would have had difficulty in establishing a breeding population. It was first reported in the U.S. in 1936 by arachnologist Harriet Exline (as Tegenaria magnacava).[4] There, without the widespread presence of any dominant competitors, it rapidly adapted to living in urban areas, where it became abundant and extended its range. By 1968 it had become established as far east as Spokane, Washington, and Moscow, Idaho, and as far south as Roseburg, Oregon.[5]

      (Two other closely related spiders live in Washington state, the giant house spider (Tegenaria duellica, or alternatively Tegenaria gigantea) and the barn funnel weaving spider or domestic house spider (Tegenaria domestica). All three of these spiders originated in Europe.[3])
