1. Hi all. I have a pretty nasty spider bite on my belly. Today alone I have killed 3 spiders. One was a baby so that means there is a nest somewhere in my apartment. Another one I think was just a harmless house spider but the third I am pretty sure was a brown recluse. I HATE spiders! Does anyone know of any good ways to keep spiders out?

    We spray the outside of our building too- hubby hasn't done it yet and they are TERRIBLE! BIG honkin things! The outdoor security lights are what attract them. The little bugs love the light, so it's a buffet for the creepy spiders. I had that spider spray for indoors, but it didn't work very well. I still rely on good old windex if I see one in the house, kills em fast.
    SERIOUS arachnophobic here- I have jumped out of a moving car b/c a spidermonster was on my steering wheel!

    Hopefully, it was not a brown recluse that bit you.

    Was it?

    Deathly afraid of spiders here too...and I echo jemb....I hope it was not a brown recluse that bit you. If it was better get yourself some medical treatment PDQ....they can do nasty things to a body.

    I dont know what kind of spider it was but the bite is really nasty. It is a black blister and have had it for over a month now.

    I think the best thing for you to do is to go have it checked out.
