    This has been going on since last year, and it's getting worse.
    And I'm not talking about, "Aww, look how cute that little guy is!" -
    I'm talking about threatening-looking M-F'ers. They just look unpleasant and mean. They look like their sole purpose is to give me sleepless nights.

    They're about this size:

    ... which, I know, it's not that intimidating, but these ****ers are crawling on my walls, on the floor, on the ceiling, and I even found several on the bed. I'm getting the growing suspicion that these bastards crawl on me while I'm sleeping, and the paranoia haunts my waking thoughts and dreams.

    I don't care if they're God's creatures.
    I don't believe in God.
    I want these bastards dead in the most horrible way possible.
    I want them screaming, crying, and obliterated.
    I want them gone for GOOD.

    Any cheap, non-expensive ideas?

    I seriously can't take it.

    Believe in God for a while and see if they go away.

    You need to invade their homes and hang out on their ceilings.

    Get some of those pest control smoke bombs and set them off as you leave the house for a few hours.

    Insecticide bombs. Set them off, find something to do for a few hours. ...?

    Not trying to be a smart-*** but surely these things are not a new concept to anyone?

    Keep it civil folks...or keep it quiet. There's no need to be rude.

    Google inexpensive/household items/remedies that can stave them off until you can have the super come and bomb the house. Most chain stores i.e. Wal-Mart, Meijer, K-Mart, have cheap bug sprays that you can spray around corners. Some are harmful to household pets though. Read the fine print.

    Or you can step on 'em.

    Thanks for that vid, don't think I'll be sleeping tonight. Apparently I'm the least prepared person on the planet for spiders.

    Have you ever thought of an exterminator?

    Who's being rude? I'm simply stating that there are better places on the internet that SHH! and IMDb to look for pest control advice.

    Also, those smoke bombs don't work.

    If you're going to set off the insect bombs, make sure you either put some in closets or put them close to one with the door open. One thing these spiders are doing is looking for a cool place.

    We set some off last week and left the house for about 3 hours. Came back and opened up the windows to air it out. Found quite a lot of dead spiders.

    That's the route you should take, the cheapest anyway.

    Orkin can be cheap if the square footage isn't too large.

    Cry to husband and act pitiful until he takes care of it.

    Seriously though, I hope someone can give you good advice. I'd go crazy if we had spiders.

    They aren't attracted to the smells you've mentioned before are they?

    Burn your house down. It's the only way to be sure*.

    Bunch of irrational arachnophobes, they're part of the balance of things.
    Eat mosquitoes.
    They eat mosquitoes.

    Seriously though I love that inherent human trait that pushes us to want to kill the things we hate and fear.
    Such a weak, silly species.
