What's Worse Than Snakes On A Plane?

    Spiders in your car!

    Every time I get in my car there's spider silk threads all over everything. No webs, just the threads.
    Couple of days ago I killed one spider who landed on my arm as I was driving. :devilzeek Next day, I caught one as I was getting in the car and killed it. After that, the silk has gotten a lot worse, but I haven't seen any spiders to kill them.

    I'm not a big fan of spiders to start with, and it kinda freaks me out driving knowing that they're in the car with me waiting to pounce on me! :bwah:

    Any ideas on how to get rid of them? Without setting the car on fire? :bwah:

    Put a hose from the exhaust and snake it inside the car.
    Roll windows up, ( obviously DON'T be inside car ) and let run for a good while.
    Air it out really well, febreze it if needed. Anything in there is dead now!

    Good luck man!!

    As bad as they smell (to me) moth balls may work....though your car will smell like an 80 year old southern ladies house...

    Get yourself a bug fogger at the hardware store. They may come 3 to a pack. Just set one off in your car with the car windows open (they are good for about a 15' x 15' room). After 2-3 hours, air out your car.
    I went out to my truck the other day and saw that a spider had set up a large circular web on the outside of my rear window, wiper arm and rear bumper. I picked up a small twig and proceeded to clean off the web. A large, quick, 8 legged, furry beast dropped to the ground. My immediate response was... 'Ugh!' and I stomped him to death. :manganr:

    Spiders may be creepy but at least they couldn't attack you while behind the wheel. They're reclusive, if you're in there driving they're hiding from you. my friend had the misfortune of picking up several wasp hitchhikers while he was out shooting his rifle. Was driving back into town when out of nowhere he sees several wasps flying around him. He opens the window but they won't leave, one crawled up his shirt sleeve and stung the fuck out of his arm. Now bear in mind this is several miles south of the city limits, if he was allergic or had an accident it would be a while before another vehicle passed by and found him. Actually called me in a panic and was hysterical because he didn't know if he was allergic but luckily he wasn't. I'll never forget how nasty those sting marks were though. Ever since seeing that, I've opted for indoor shooting ranges.

    Owl dude is right though, even if that mantis is chillin in your car for a year, wouldn't matter. Better than spiders chillin in the car :ross:

    Whatever you do John, don't reach around under the seat! :ropeman:

    If they don't go away, just set your car on fire and collect the insurance. :bwah::bruce:

    Hey Bruce, did ya' miss the part about NOT setting the car on fire??? :bwah:



    Besides, I've only had the car for two weeks, and I'd like to keep it around a little longer.:manganr: If the spiders don't die off in another couple of weeks, THEN, I'll think about torching it! :ross: :ross: :ross:
