    So we live in the top end of a duplex, and the downstairs tenant comes up, and asks if we have a spider problem. We've had a couple big ones, but only my roommate has seen them.

    The downstairs lady shows me this:

    I'm thinking CK5 is bad juju. 3-3.5" legspan.

    Where is Can Can's butt located? Looks like it could be a Hobo or Zoropsis Spinimana, who knows.

    Hobos are nasty spiders. Bite is similar to brown Recluse. They are also pretty agressive. I hate them. We have them around here. I have declared all out chemical warfare on them. Keep them under control with insectdicide and traps. Once they get established in a home they are hard to get rid of.
    Not a good spider to have around

    Yeah, they're pretty nasty. Most of the time, them and their bites are misidentified as brown recluses. I don't know why the brown recluse is so famous, the hobo is probably as bad, and I think more common. Can't beleive I identified it from a somewhat blurry pic, I must've seen too many of them. :eek1: :doah: :(

    I would have to run the water for about 2 days to make sure that it is not crawling back out.
