This story will give me nightmares forever. Clowns too, eh? You are a girl after my own heart.

Well, at least you know that there isn't a basilisk in the house!

She doesn't. She needs to sleep with one eye open.

Seriously, I'm freaked out. Hate spiders, now all jumpy.

OMG, that is terrible!

I'm not terrified of spiders, but I AM terrified of massive amounts of them everywhere. I couldn't even imagine being there!

I agree with Sparks on this one- you guys really need a stable living arrangement! I couldn't deal with the stress of going from one bad situation to the next!

I only found one in my bedroom yesterday. The rest of the basement still has a few here and there. Josh is off work today though so he's going to fix the door gap issue. I get paid today so I'm going to pick up some of the DE and I want to take the vacuum hose to every nook and cranny again. I really don't want to keep picking up and going all over the place. If we can get this spider issue completely under control then it'll be fine. We can't do an apartment Sparks because we have three dogs and apartments only allow one or two. I've never heard of an apartment allowing 3.

I'm going to try to make the best of this place since its technically temporary. As long as we get the critter issue under control everything else is not too bad.

Is there somewhere you guys can just hang out for a few hours and just nuke the house with this stuff?
http://www.amazon.com/Terro-2300-16-...=spider+killer

It's not very natural but at this point I say F IT and just nuke the little suckers!

and It's not harmful to kids/pets once it dries.

DE is great, don't get me wrong.. I do use it. but it takes a while (since it works but drying out exoskeletons).. it works as a preventative and for minor problems but for full on infestation I would just go with a more powerful spray.

Make sure you don't breath any.

OMG! I would of died the first time I saw so many spiders at once.
I am extremely scared of spiders, like you, Amber.
More power to you for sticking it out because I would of been gone a long time ago.

And I agree with nuking the place. F that.
You are braver than me, I give you that girl lol

Ya I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be able to stick this out. Now I found a snake. Looked like a black rat to me and I love snakes... But wild snakes loose in my living space oh hellll noooo... And what do snakes usually mean? I'm just waiting to find mice. Got the snake out. Josh thinks nothing else will come in because he put weather stripping where the gap was at the bottom of the door. My thing is even if nothing else can come in now... How many things are already here?

There are some obscene amounts of money you could pay me to live in a house like that, but they would have to be REALLY obscene.

The two things that terrify me most in this world: Spiders and snakes. I have a bullsnake living under my porch that I have grown to appreciate, because it kills all the mice, but if I saw it (I've only seen its skin) I would probably go into a full blown panic attack. I have gotten better about spiders, but if I were to experience what you have, I would definitely be freaking the f out.
