Fred the spider… we may have to evict him - Page 2

post #31 of 57
great thread, but now I'm totally creeped out after seeing Fredricka's picture.
I second the idea of relocating her to the long grass behind your house. Although it might cost you more than a nice dinner for your BF to do it!

EEEkkkk! Let me tell you, i don't know if you guys read my story about the big Boxer/Pitt that was running around my neighborhood and me running around, arms flailing, screaming "YEY! OMG YEY! FUN!" running in circles to get his attention... and now this? My neighborhood must think i am a total freak, they don't even hide their laughter anymore! Its bad enough my neighbors see it LMAO.

HAHAHA Ya, every time i bring up the fact that he needs to take the broom and move her his face literally gets green. He is a big fan of killing her, the broom means he has to get up close and personal, with the possibility of getting too close and personal!! LOL poor guy, I told him its his fault for falling for the craziest chicky he could find! LOL he agreed of course.

More spiders have arrived though, its seriously freaking me out. Emy4Cats, I am right behind you on that, today i left via the back door. The web is massive now! Fredericka is taking over. Tonight we will talk about this. Its going to take a lot of sweet talking to get my boyfriend to deal with this LOL.
Got to give him credit though for not killing her, if it was up to him she would have been hosed down awhile ago... he thinks i am nuts! LOL

LOL it would be nice to have another crazy woman around! I actually live in Canada, New Brunswick. Too bad, we could have given the neighbors more amusements LOL.

Whats funny is i don't even know my neighbors, they all just laugh and wave at me when they see me LOL.

I do live in Georgia, although not close to Florida, want a call next time a wasp gets in the car?

I would have sprayed her and her babies with poison long ago. I am terrified of spiders and that picture has me looking all over the room for spiders every time I feel an itch, LOL. I would be afraid of her babies getting into my house.

Well.... tonight is Fredericks eviction. Wish us luck that she doesn't jump off the broom handle on us!

We are pretty sure that mass in the corner of the window are her eggs (what a tramp!) we need to hose that out.

I had to literally plead with my boyfriend to not evict her via the high pressure hose. I don't blame him for being apprehensive over the whole thing, i would never be able to do it myself LOL.

I will let you all know what happens. Ive actually grown fond of her LOL.
post #38 of 57
I would have to call 911 or wear a bio hazard suit to remove him/her myself. I hate spiders!
post #39 of 57
Waiting with baited breath for the update!
Make sure you get them all.....
post #40 of 57
Nice to hear you guys are relocating Fredricka and her kids, rather than killing her.
I know many people are freaked out by spiders and automatically kill them, but they are just trying to make a living like the rest of us. I don't want them crawling on me or imposing themselves on my home anymore than the next person, but it IS pretty easy to relocate them without any harm to human or spider.
Teri and I are always relocating some creature from our property, snake, spider, lizard etc. The small effort to spare the life of an innocent, even if it gives you the creeps is worthwhile. They all have their purpose.
post #41 of 57
Wait, are they being relocated or killed?

I thought they were being killed. Good riddance.
post #42 of 57
Why kill something that isn't trying to make a meal out of you? If being gross was an automatic death sentance our cats would have to euthanize us when you think of how fastidious they are.

Well we didn’t get a chance to relocate her due to having family members over and then drinking enough to make us tired LOL. Tonight will have to be the day. I am going to Toronto tomorrow to visit the family and this morning I noticed about 5 tiny spiders… not babies, but pretty small ones… they are slowly taking over lol. They were crawling all over the door near the lock, and once again, to someone’s amusement (this time a cable guy next door) I got some laughs trying to close, and lock the door lol.

Last night my boyfriends Mom looked at me like I was a total freak when she saw Fredericka and I mentioned we were waiting to relocate her. She laughed and told me I was sweet…and weird LOL.

I will let you guys know what happened LOL. I get chills just thinking about it…. Blech!! I hate spiders LOL she’s lucky I have grown fond of her.

Did you get her moved?

Lol sorry guys, things just keep coming up! I only got home from my trip on Monday, so that was a wright off as i was so tired.

Yesterday i was devastated on the state of Tasha, i dont think i have ever seen something so sad in my life, i spent the night depressed not moving from the couch.

And today might not be a good day today as i will be visiting Tasha again and it probably wont be good. I have been stalking the SPCA Director trying to get permission to bath her, i am aware i am being annoying lol.

Ill need to move her though, today she scared the crap out of me. It was windy and when i closed the door it slammed shut and jiggled her web, as her web jiggled, she lifted her two front legs twords me . It was almost as if she was looking at me. She also seems to be spending a lot of time in the little mass she made in the corner of my window.

I might make my boyfriend just do it without me there LOL.

Ill keep you updated! As of now, shes still lives with us LOL.

Update on Fredericka


Sad news possibly....

On Saturday when my boyfriend and i got back from our grocery shopping we noticed that Fredericka had expanded her web to take up about 2 inches at the top of our front door. We decided we were going to do some house errands and then move her to a spot we had picked out in the backyard.

About 20min before we were done what we were doing, we recieved a thunderstorm warning and it started to rain really hard. About 5 min after that it started to hail....really bad... the hail was about the size of marbles and it lasted a good 15 min.

When it was over i went outside to check if she was there and she wasnt . Most of her web was gone and all of her 6 boyfriends were gone as well. Our fronch porch was a clean as clean can be.

I only hope she got wisked away by some wind and she is making her house elsewhere.... poor girl... i actually liked her, she was growing so big too and getting more color.

Oh well, hopefully she is ok.

I would imaginge she took cover up in the nooks and crannys of your porch, wherever one of her web ends was. Spiders are good like that, they leave themselves an out, in case something too big gets in their web, or a preadator comes calling.

I think your right! I just logged on to post that my boyfriend mentioned that he saw a huge spider half hidden underneath the vinyl siding at the top of our porch! So she may be ok. Now all we have to do is wait for her to come out so we can relocate her.
post #50 of 57
Seems to me you've come to like this little girl quite a bit, at least to the point you were worried that she was ok. I think you have an unintentional pet! Are you sure you want to relocate her?

LMAO the above is completely true which makes me the biggest weirdo ever! I am still terrified of her.... and yes...she IS back. I learned the hard way this morning when I left my house and she was on the side of my door two inches from my face streching her legs out twords me . Being that i was wearing new shoes that are really high, and I am not used to them i ended up falling off the porch, onto my knees in the slimy mud and had to go back inside, wash my legs, shoes, purse, laptop case and change my cloths.... I was 1 hour late this morning, and yes, the first thing i still do is log onto TCS Lol I should be fired!

As much as i like her, and have grown fond of her she needs to go. I am so terrified of her my boyfriend makes total fun of me about how much I like her yet I cant even look at her without feeling grossed out lol.

Oh well LOL stay tuned AGAIN for updates on her relocation.
post #52 of 57
Maybe you have a shed or some such place where you can relocate her?
post #53 of 57
LOL.

I think your going to have to add her to your siggy of you keep putting off the relocation date, LOL.

Hope relocating her goes well!

this thread keeps getting funnier! Aww, I hope you didn't ruin your new shoes!!

Lol well I kinda of deserved it wearing shoes that are too sexy for me! Actually my Mom bought them for me and I felt bad because I hadn’t worn them yet. The shoes are fine… the metal thing that brings the water from our gutters to the ground however, is not ok.

When I fell it kind of came with me LOL I was so irritated and annoyed I just left it there. My boyfriend gave me the look of death when he came home and saw it LOL. But the shoes are fine!! LOL.

My boyfriend actually tried to hose away the web when Fredericka was on the other side of our porch. Being that he only got about a quarter of the web, I guess it’s hard to hose out a web, we now have new squatters living in the web. Today at lunch there was a 2+ inch dragonfly caught in the web and a spider was eating it!!!!!

LOL if we weren’t so lazy we would have relocated her! We keep talking about it and never doing it lol.

Oh dear!!
I am so sorry but I had to laugh at that story! Im not laughing because you fell in the mud, but because I can almost hear her thoughts,
Spider: "Im still here, no worrys , see, can I hug you?"
Human:"Aghhhhhhh!'
post #57 of 57
I have to admit I "LOLed" envisioning you grabbing the metal pipe so you wouldn't fall.... just to end up pulling it off and falling anyways. Glad you & your shoes are ok though!
