someone on myspace replied...

From what i can tell its a Wolf spider,



The wolf spider is a member of the Lycosidae family, the order Aranedia. There are around 125 species that are found in the United States and about 50 species that are found in Europe. A full grown wolf spider is typically a half an inch to two inches in length; they are usually brown or gray with various stripe-like markings on their backs. The markings are sometimes called “Union Jack Impressions.” Wolf spiders are also very hairy.

now the important bit

Wolf Spider Bite
Even though the wolf spider is poisonous, its venom is not lethal. The wolf spider is not known to be aggressive; however, they will bite if they feel like they are in harm or danger. They also move extremely fast when they are disturbed. If bitten by a wolf spider, the wound should not be bandaged but an ice pack should be placed on the bite so that the swelling will go down. And if necessary the victim should avoid any movement if at all possible. It is extremely important that one sees medical attention if bitten by a wolf spider or any other spider.

If you need more help just let me know, or go to Spider Bites

I was wondering if it was a wolf spider, wasn't sure though so I kept my mouth shut. Spiders are cool, but at the same time, I can't stand the things

life IS good.

now i'm all freaked out, lol. i found one crawling across my bed yesterday & scooped it up & took it outside, just to find it in my tie dye tupperware in the garage today. so i trapped it, pending the jury's decision. i really hate to kill things, so i'll probably just take it up to the woods & let it go, but i'm all freaky feeling now...all these pics of spiders...and the fact that it was on my bed...on my pillow!!!! ewwwww!

i put my foot into my shoe once & felt something strange & unusual...took it off & a beetle came out. definitely glad it wasn't a spider, as i probably would have screamed like a girl, but a beetle was bad enough, lol! geez, what i go through by living in the basement!

i never kill them, but if they cross my personal space (ie, pillow) i will catch them & shoo them outside, as i can't stand the site of them. but yes, that's why i don't kill them...cuz they kill those other creepy crawly things that i also don't like. if they stay in their dark corners i'm cool cohabitating with them, it's just when they get on my bed that i become a lil territorial.

well now that just freaks me out even more. you coulda let me believe it was the same one, lol. i did let the one go that was on my pillow just outside of the garage, so feasibly, it might be the same one, as the one that's trapped right now is in the tupperware...in the garage. and they look to be about the same size. but yeah, you're probably right. i just hope there isn't more in my room!
