House Spiders the Size of Your Fist


The Loon Morning Crew had this one on the air this morning.  It has to make you squirm at bit.

Ireland is currently being invaded by a swarm of first-sized spiders. Experts say the giant spiders are on the prowl for a mate, and the male house spider can grow to a leg-span of nearly four inches during the mating season (August to September.) Residents are being warned to check their sheds, gardens, and warm spots in the corners of their homes for the creatures. Experts say the spiders are not dangerous but can bite, and can move very quickly.

Now go and by an extra can of Raid!
