I was out in the backyard today moving stuff so we could cut the grass.......I was in the corner of the yard and I happened to glance at this spider web.....I seen the biggest spider I have ever seen in my life!!! He ( or she) was sitting on this big web...my first thought was to get a shotgun! Then I remembered...I bought a can of spider spray at Lowes.....so up to the house I go to get my can of spray. By then I just had to show the spider to someone, so I got Mom to come down and look at it. She said she had never seen one that big either .It was yellow and black. I told Mom I was going to spray it...she said " watch out it doesnt jump on you"....( that was all I needed to hear)..if this thing would have jumped on me you would have heard me 3 counties over. So I stood back a little and I let him have it....I sprayed and sprayed.....it took him forever to die. He just kind of dropped down from the web but he was still moving...so of course I sprayed him again. Then I sprayed the web real good in case that thing he was sitting on had babies in it. It just freaked me out that we could have spiders that big around here. Has anyone ever seen a yellow and black big spider before? I wish I had taken a picture of it. I dont know much about spiders but that sucker was a scary one!!!!
