I've seen one in the 8 years we've had this place.

Haven't seen one in 50 years! When I was a kid had one crawl out from under the console tv while I was laying in the floor of the living room. I'll never forget that moment...scared me!

Have not seen one in forever, it would get a pass from me even if it was in the house!

My daughter, on the West side of Ft Worth, is complaining about them this year. Their back yard has a bunch of terracing :eeks333 and she was seeing them evening and morning.

I told her I had several types of bug killers that might work, and she was free to give them a try.... but I clearly pointed out the bottle she would definitely be in violation of several laws in using.

She says the big a55 spiders are gone. I'm not sure what she used.

Yep..They all get a pass. They are basically very gentle. It's the young ones, that cop a "tude"
The older, gray haired one's are pretty laid back.
I've been handling them, all my life. And I have never been bitten.
But, you do gotta have some respect..

I see them often at my ranch. I’ve seen as many as 5 in one day near my metal barn.

I remember when I was in the Permian and there would be a quick summer flash flood those things would come crawling out of the ground like in a movie. Pretty cool to witness

They make great bass baits. They dance around on top of the water.

I saw literally thousands of them migrating and going across a road up at Eisenhower State Park. I was a kid camping up there and it looked like something out of a scary movie.

Haven’t seen one where I live, only saw them at grandpas place. We get black widows, got hit by one years ago under a pool skimmer lid. Was within 5 minutes if a hospital, got treated, and 2 weeks later you wouldn’t know anything happened on my hand. I believe it only hit with one fang though. My finger looked like a ballon for a couple days with lots of puss.
Most spiders get a pass from me, but I kill every BW anytime I see one! I even kill the false ones cause I ain’t takin a chance again.

I'll do a "Mexican Hat Dance" on a BW or Brown Recluse... slinger
I got bit by a BR. It took nearly three years to heal..
It bit me right on the face. Between my ear lobe, and chin...
It literally, rotted the side of my face off.
I lost my job. My car. Had to sell my house. Moved in with my parents for two years.
Until I could go out in public, without scaring the crap outta little kids...
Even looking at a pic of one.. Makes me sick, to my stomach.

That sounds awful. I was very fortunate to be where I was when I got hit by a BW. Had I been further or hit by both fangs I’d have likely lost a finger!
