Woodlouse Hunter

Michigan Spiders - Woodlouse Hunter-1

Michigan Spiders - Woodlouse Hunter-2
Abdomen - Oblong smooth but dull look to it. Usually a cream or tan color.

Cephalothorax - Near the same size as the Abdomen. Has a dark brick red color with large chelicerae (fangs).

Size - The adult bodies usually run around a half an inch with the females usually slightly larger. Including legs the run near an inch in size as adults.

Bite Info - Can cause a blistering rash, but otherwise is not considered dangerous.

Other Notes - This spider has the large fangs for penetrating the armor on beetles, so whether the venom is considered dangerous or not, likely the bite will hurt, so I would not suggest handling them.

Genus - Dysdera crocata

  1. I found this exact spider in my basement. I live in Novi, Michigan close to Farmington. I trapped him inside a jar and tried to flip it on its back to examine it further. I found this spider to be very agressive when trying to handle and it drew its front legs in the air exposing its fangs to me. It did not run away yet stayed at its place with its legs in the air like as if it were ready to fight or attack. The spider was about 1.5 inches in length, completely red except a dark yellowish abdomen with a blackish ending at they're back. Its fangs were about a quarter inch in length. After seeing how agressive it was and that it did not run away I changed my mind about handling it with bare hands or keeping it in my house with children present so I picked it up with a spoon and placed it into a jar and let it go in a wooded area outside. I would advise caution when handling this spider because of its agressive nature.

    4. I've just been stomping on them when I see them. I also use ortho home defense bug spray on the outside and inside of my home 2 x/ year. Since I've been here, about 3 years, the wood louse hasn't been around too much, especially this summer. I dunno what made th leave, IF they are really gone but I'd stomp those suckers and use bug spray,

  3. I found one last night in my bath room. I was about to kill it but had a change of heart. it just stood there, no fear what so ever. But it was not aggressive at all. It just obediently went into the small jar. I was starting to really like the spider. =]

  5. I live in Livonia. One of these nasty buggers took up residence somewhere in my room. Every morning I would wake up with a new tiny bite. Then a second bump would appear about 1/4 inch away from the bite. Then a nasty rash/blister would develop around the two marks. They were pretty itchy but but not very painful. Benedryl and Cortisone cream helped with the itch. Eventually we found it in my laundry and then it was payback time. Fly-swatters FTW.

  6. I found one of these in my basement this morning (Northville area) and jumped on the web to check it out. It suppose it was pretty if you're into spiders. Unfortunately I'm not, thwack....

    ReplyDelete
  7. LIVONIA ... If you found it in the laundry, there is a good chance it was not the culprit of the biting. I just dont see a spider making its way from a laundry basket up into a bed every night. ..... I hate to say this, but you might want to have your bed checked for BedBugs. Yes they are real and getting more and more common again. Please look them up and how to check for them. I may be wrong, but it might be worth your time to check it out at least.

    NORTHVILLE .... Honestly, I dont think these are pretty even if you are into spiders. :o) And to be even more honest, I live by the thwak rule a little myself. My home is MY domain. If they enter my domain, they do so at their own risk. I will catch them and take pics. If they pose well, they live. If not... not!

  10. One of these bastards fell from the ceiling and hit my leg while in bed. I woke up wondering why I thought my small dogs tail just thwacked me from out of no where and realized he wasn't there and that couldn't have been my imagination. I pulled the covers a part with the lights on and boom. This good sized red son of a gun scared me twice. I'm a grown man and damn this thing made me look it up to make sure it wasn't poisonous. It looked so foreign to me. No wonder I've found these 2 small rash like bites. Bastard. I'm so mad right now!

  11. I'm reading all these posts, and I'm still confused...I'm in Long Beach California. While gardening I came across one that was inside it's webbed cacoon under a water bowl for the birds. I found myself interested, so I poked it's abdomen with my little soil fork (sorry PETA, but I hate spiders, and if I find them, they will die) anyway..this is the confusing part...as a poked it, a tiny coned shaped snail shell emerged (weird?!). So I thought...could it be true, so I scraped it again and it sure enough was a tiny rough shell. Can anyone please tell me what it really was, I thought spiders blended their food first. I might be trying to be funny here...but I'm seriously bafled right about now. HELP

  15. I just found one of these resting on the heater in my aquarium. The temperature control sits above the water, but under the aquarium lid. I was surprised to see one of these in my fish tank when I lifted the lid to add some algae control. I considered flicking it into the water for the fish, but sucked him out with a vacuum hose instead. I'm in Roseville, Michigan.

  16. One just dropped from the ceiling in front of my face. It dangled in front of me for a few seconds, but then moved so it had to die - swiftly. I have lived in this area my whole life (40+ years) and have not encountered this spider before...ugly thing. I seriously think the bugger was aiming for me! (Clarkston, MI)

  18. I've found several of these spiders in my living room , one on my 16 month old daughter , does this mean I have a nest somewhere and if so what do I do ?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would definitely give the room an extra good cleaning. Look underneath furniture, behind entertainment center, stuff like that. Look for anywhere they may be or coming in from outdoors. Destroy any egg sacs as well.

    It is hard to say what to do this time of the year. We are so close to Winter setting in that they likely wont be around much longer anyways. Yet since you have a young child, you might be better off paying for an exterminator. That is totally your call.

    What you may tray in the very least would be to get some spray from Home Depot or Lowes that comes in a gallon jug with a spray gun on a small hose. They have a spray that is meant for repelling spiders. Spray that around windows and doors on the outside. If they are coming in from outside through one of those areas, this will help.

    Sorry. I dont know what else to say.

  23. I live in Jefferson County, WV and have found many of these in my home. We just fumigated after I got bit by a yellow sac spider (I saw it bite me and captured it) then my son got bit while sleeping so I assumed it was the same. But since we fumigated I have been finding these boogies all over and my son woke up with another bite this morning with the water blister again and I found some of these dead in his bedroom.

  24. (Ann Arbor) I came across one, last night, when I was cleaning one of my buildings. It was in the corner of the door frame, towards the interior of the building - where it was warmer. The only reason I noticed it was that it was a bright orange-ish red against the white frame. Since it did not move as I entered, I thought that I would be able to spray it when I returned to the area. Only to find that in the 15 minutes - or less - that it took me to return, it had moved about 4 feet. I left nothing to chance, spraying it with some wasp spray; the only thing readily available and ideal since it could be sprayed from a distance. I wish I had taken a picture, but having moved so quickly, I think it wiser I did not wait.

  25. I had one crawling on my livingroom floor about an hour ago. My wife seen it, she is scared of spiders. In the past whenever I see spiders I will pick them up and put them outside.

    Just found one of these in my bathroom, scared the mess out of me. I ran and got my husband and he sprayed and killed it. When he saw it he said he was watching on tv the show "Infested" and looked up brown recluse spiders in michigan and ended up on this site. Who knew we woulda been coming back to it today to look up the spider we just found. Glad it's not poisonous cause I have a toddler in the house.

  31. Hi, we live in Gibraltar and have the subdivision's pond behind us and it's naturally swampy here so we get lots of spiders. This one I have killed several times in our house. We also get some other kinds of really big, furry kinds and other kids I couldn't describe if I wanted to. Any suggestions? Where should I look for eggs sacs? THanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Sarah

    For identifying them, if you can email me a clear pic of any you dont know, I would be glad to help all I can in identifying them. You can also go to http://www.spiderzrule.com/spiderphotos.htm and see if you can find the spiders. Glen has a great spider site with tons of pics. I have used it myself and on occasion when I need help in identifying spiders, I have sent images to her to look at as well.

    As for egg sacs, that all depends on what you mean. Where to go on-line to help identify egg sacs to know what kind of spider they are? Or where to look for them in real life?

    If you want to find them on-line, I would say to just type it in Google images like "Wolf Spider Egg sacs" and you are bound to find some.

    Now if you want to know where they are outside? That depends on the spider. Some spiders like Wolf Spiders carry them on their backs until they hatch. Nursery Web Spiders will carry them until just before they hatch then attach them to a plant or something and stand guard over them. Others leave them in their webs. There simply is no particular place to find them.

  39. I moved into a home 3 years ao and seeing more spider than I care too. Saw only 4-5 in the house during the fall, but this week, saw 7 spiders total in the house. Not sure what kind they are,but could be yellow sac, wolf, or grass spiders. Most have little coloration seem like young spiders. Does this seem like too many spiders in a house--should I get pest control?

  41. I took part in a small study of these spiders and some basic information would be:

    Do not handle them.
    They are aggressive.
    They do not back off after an attack.
    Usually found in damp, dark areas.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I just caught one under my sink. My mom is literally in tears due to the size of its fangs. I trapped this one in a ziploc and it still had space to move and it was doing a jabbing motion with a long foreleg. Ive seen a million of them cutting up firewood and brush. (hence the name "woodlouse hunter") i always just smash them so they couldnt bite and i could carry on with my work. Im from monroe county.

  43. ok I think I found one of these but the Abdomen and the Cephalothorax were not the same size the abdomen (tan part) was a good bit bigger then the rest of it. is this the same spider or a different one?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Without seeing it or a pic of it, I wouldnt be able to answer that. Likely, I would guess it is a different spider if the abdomen was a lot larger than the rest. That sounds more like some kind of Orb Weaver, but again, there is no way I can tell. Sorry.

  45. Just found one at MSU outside of the chem building. Trapped him in a small box and now he is in an Erlenmeyer flask. He, because I believe this one is male, is actually quite a pretty shade of dark red. He wasn't very aggressive even with my slight taunting with a spatula.

  46. I am in Sandusky, Ohio (not far from MI), and we just found one. It's pretty strong. We put a plasic container over it to contain it. it apparently was strong enought to escape it. We caught it again and this time put the conatiner over it weighted with a heavy candle until we were able to identify what kind of spider it was. Now he/she is out of doors exporing. Hope there aren't more. I don't like spiders and tis one was a little large for my small comfort zone. My skin is still crwaling. eeeww

  51. my wife said she saw one in our basement last fall with the aggressive behavior frequently described. I have seen 2 of them over the last week, but they have each been smaller and less aggressive than described, but look the same.

  55. I came across one in my basement this evening when I went down to put a load of clothes in my washer. First time I ever saw one like it. Red legs, gray hind part. I do not like spiders. He or she had to die.(I have small grand kids) Tapped him litely with a news paper, put him in the toilet and flushed. I place moth balls around my house about once a month. I have grated vents in the main floors and bedrooms,so I place one ball over each vent. Place them around in the basement. They usually dissolve in a few days. No insect likes the smell of moth balls. I don't like the smell of them. They do keep them away. The house may stink for a few days but fragrant room sprays and perfumed candles can remove the smell. But...the little buggers also like the fragrance. I will probably go ahead and set off the insecticide smoke cans, those usually work pretty good for a while.

  63. I run a daycare and my kids were playing a game when along came the spider. The children screamed big spider, what kind is that they said, it is so big. It's red
    and big, so I got a paper towel and a toy work helment and the spider kept running
    so one of the children grabed a toy bat and blasted it. The spider went to spider
    heaven. If I would not have been freaked out by it's size myself it would of probably
    been better to catch it and release it, but spiders are not my friend, or the childrens
    they were glad it was dead. Kalamazoo, MI.

  64. I live near Cincinnati Ohio but in a rural area and have been finding these spiders in my house for the past couple years. I typically find them in my shower or around the bathroom area of my house. Just this morning my husband came across one outside in the gravel area around our air conditioning unit. I can't say any that I have come across are aggressive, but they don't run away either. I have been wondering for awhile what kind of spider they were.

  65. I have found three os these spiders including one today. I had to look it up and see what the heck was invading my apartment. I live in the lower level apartment, my first time and my last time. Even though it is not poisonous, I am ready to move. SCARED to DEATH. I am so scared of spiders. The one I found today, I THOUGHT was dead already. I put it in a ziploc baggies to take to the health dept for identification. While cleaning up, I noticed that he was no longer balled up and was crawling around inside the bag. Now that I know what kind it is, I feel a little better. AND I do mean a little :) Thank you for the website. I would have spent all weekend freaking out until I knew what it was. Pest control is coming out next week.

  68. I'm in Westland Michigan, and found this thing upside down and half dead in my basement room. It looked like a red spider carrying a grey rock, and this "rock" turned out to be its abdomen. I thought for sure it was about to have baby spiders or something, I've never seen a spider that had such an oversized abdomen in relation to its thorax. I put the thing out of its misery, but I'll remain ever vigilant from now on. Yuck.

    I am in Warren, Michigan. Found one in my finished basement cruising along the wall base board. When I approached it, it turned toward me and started to aggressively come towards me and lifted its front legs. I quickly used and old winter coat, closest thing I could find to kill it since I was barefoot, and smashed it into the carpet and lifted the coat and it was still trying to come after me even though it was almost in half. I finished the job. Freaked me out. Never saw a spider like that, color and aggressive. I won't go in the basement without shoes again until I get my house sprayed.

  70. i think i might have just found one of these but im not sure the part that is not tan was a very deep red color, but it did not back down i frightened whenn i moved my toilet tissue roll and it climbed down onto the side of my bathroom counter and it just sat there staring at me while i got my senses back and smushed it, it was very aggressive, very fearless, and i wouldnt even think of handling it. also, its the first one i saw ever i live in the saint louis/shephard area of gratiot county.

  71. I live in Taylor and I found one crawling towards me as I'm falling asleep. It's became a thing for me to look every night before I go to sleep. What's worse is being terrified of spiders and having them come out almost every single night when I am trying to finally close my eyes and knock out after a long day. So instead of killing them or getting any closer to where it's at or even when it's about an inch away from my face... I just run out the living room and call out for someone that's still up to come do something about it cause there is no way I will touch it.

  74. I saw one of these this summer in the garden and it scared the !@#$ out of me. Once I regained my composure I frantically started moving bricks trying to find it for a better look. Alls I could remember was red and white, half and half. So happy I finally know what it is!! Great site! Very helpful. I was able to identify several Hacklemesh as well. (Hazel Park)

  78. I found a dead one in my laundry room cupbord the other day. I have randomly been getting bit over the past 2 mths. I will wake up with a bite or two on my arms and fingers and once on my neck. The bites will itch and swell getting a red ring no bigger then a dime. When the swelling goes down, I find 2 bite marks. I have searched my bed for bed bugs and fleas and have found none. It has to be spinder bites. I have given my house a good vacumming under and behind the furniture and sprayed for spinders and so far have not gotten bit again. Taylor, MI

  80. Just found one in Chicago, IL in a mostly concrete building (Which is odd considering what wikipedia claims they eat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodlouse_spider). He was living inside a nook of cinder-block at floor level and I collected him because I've never seen a spider like him before. Which is want led me here.

  81. I live in Western NY, I was doing laundry in my basement yesterday and noticed a huge house centipede(which I HATE),just chilling in the middle of the floor. Then I see this exact spider, running fast in my direction as I stand stunned watching the centipedes next move. I was hoping the centipede would grab this spider. I think he was waiting for him to emerge from somewhere and I distracted the process. i tried to scoop the spider with a broom to bring it closer to the centipede but the spider kept running under boxes then coming back out toward me. Very aggresive little thing. I let it go and shooed the centipede away with the broom toward the drain in the basement. Even though I am terribly frightened of centipedes, I am glad to know that its in my basement hunting these sorts of spiders. First time I saw this type of spider. Huge fangs. Mostly red with a grayish abdomen. Had to look it up. Mine was about the size of a quarter.

  82. I just found one this morning (I live in Westland, MI). I would never have known the thing was in my room if my cat hasn't woken me up. We live in a lower level apartment (the building apparently used to be a garage before it was converted into apartments). I got up to shoo my cat out and kicked over my heater, so I turned on the light to check my toes, and saw this bugger running across my floor, which was scary because I can't see very well without my glasses, but I could see him VERY well. Trapped him under a big mixed nuts can, and had to have my mom kill it, since I'm very arachnophobic. She did, then threw it in the toilet to take a look before she flushed it. So nasty! I still have the skin crawlies :(

  84. My daughter told me there was a spider on the floor when we were watching TV in my basement this weekend, by first reaction was to kill it, I hit it with a hockey skate ( only thing I have available ) and delivered a glancing blow, I then coaxed it onto a DVD case and had my wife get me a jar to put it in. Never once ( even after trying to cut in half with the skate ) did it ever show aggresion towards me, I ended up putting in a small plastic container and added some cardboard rolls for hide space along with some crickets, fearing it would die due to injury and not looking very healthy I was about to give up on the spider; this morning I came down to check on her and she was mobile, no problems moving and there was a husk of a cricket in the corner, I have a new pet and have actually grown a bit fond of her ( as long as she stays in the enclosure :o) ). I live in Minneapolis MN, this is the 2nd spider like this I have found in my basement in the last 3 years, always in the winter, I am sure they are just getting out of the cold, otherone was non aggressive for the record also..........

  97. I was eating cereal in my underwear on the couch and felt something on my leg. I thought it might be a bug or cheerio and brush it. It bit me on the finger. Caused an adrenalin spike wondering if it was a brown recluse. I'm still hoping it's not. I went to the next couch in the direction that I had flung it and picked up a blanket and shook it out over the couch. There it was. I killed it but not too damaging in case I have to go in and get antivenom. 2 minutes later out comes a cricket and I killed that too. My basement is a freaking menagerie!

  99. I was sleeping the other night and I woke up feeling pain and itch on my arm. I assumed that something had bitten me but I didn't see anything. Anyway the next day I had an itchy welt about the size of a mosquito bite maybe a bit bigger. I thought at first that it was a mosquito bite but then I remembered being woke-up by what I thought was a bite of some kind. Last night I searched underneath my bed to find one of these spiders that had just died (legs still had occasional movement but that was it). I removed it from under the bed, ID'd it, and discarded it. I am 99% sure that is what bit me because the bite (although not very bad) has stayed swollen longer than a typical mosquito bite. Now I am on the hunt for more. I typically don't hunt spiders but bugs (especially earwigs) are getting a bit out of hand this year. I saw a really large one of these in my garage last week. It was hanging out underneath a cardboard box amidst a huge nest (250 or more) earwigs. I doused the whole nest with lighter fluid (the only thing nearby) and let it do its work. If I wasn't in such a hurry to douse the nest of earwigs I would have nabbed this big female and taken some pictures. Oh well. My property, my rules.

  101. I found one last night on my kitchen counter. Found a few huge ones last year down in the laundry room. A few hours ago a small one dropped down from the ceiling dangling in front of my face while on the computer. They are nasty, aggressive and have big fangs. My husband got bit a few days ago. Even though not poisionous, I have sensitive reactions to any bite. Time to bomb some rooms. It will take care of them. Cleaning regularly under and around everything will usually expose any unwanted insect and therefore, no surprizes.

  102. The best way to overcome your fears of spiders is to educate yourself about them. When you can readily identify them and know which ones won't hurt you and the ones that will, you can react accordingly instead of panicing. There are very few that are poisonous in Michigan and if you can identify them then the rest are of no concern.

  104. Spiders are a good sign. they may be ugly, but they prey on the really creepy bugs that no one wants to know about. (Michigan centipedes, cockroaches? Gross!) I consider them a small cleaning crew. A basement is an ideal spot for spiders due to the darker and moist conditions. A de-humidifier for the basement will help keep bugs away, as a bonus, use the water for plants.

  111. I happened to look into my friend's room and just saw this type of spider crawling across the floor. I grabbed a tupperware container, plastic sandwich bag, pen and flashlight and spent about 10 minutes trying to find and capture it. Once I got it enclosed in the bag I was able to get a closer look. I could tell it was a female by the pedipalps. It's bigger than a lot of spiders I've seen, and it's especially freaky with the reddish color. I eventually captured it and let it go outside.

  124. Your photo confirms the identity of the woodlouse spider I just squished with a paper towel here in Seattle at 3 AM. Saw it crawling across the living room carpet. This guy is tough. Large, fat fangs gnawing through the paper towel. I've noticed a migration of doodlebugs taking shade under the door of my patio storage unit. Perhaps it's presence has to do with hunting those doodlebugs. I have a glass jar ready for next time....

  125. Thank you for this great website. It helped confirm the spider I just discovered in my office. I am not a huge spider fan, but this creepy-crawly thing was no bueno, and upon reading about the blistering rash I handled it as I do most spiders who cross my path - throw things until it is dead. Thankfully it did not land inside my new running shoe, but found its way underneath (thwack thwack thwack) and cleaned up with the use of a hot soaking wet paper towel to land in the trash can (furthest from my desk). Location: Rockton, Illinois. Yeppers, I guess he traveled in someone's luggage or by the wild wind we are experiencing this summer.

  127. I live in Anne Arundel County Maryland. I've found two of these spiders within three days, in the hallway just outside the bedrooms and across from the bathroom. My son spotted the first one on the chair rail moulding. He said his shoulder was very close to it but the spider did not react. I came fairly close to it as well while photographing it but it did not react to me either. The second one I found was on the ceiling in the hallway, I walked under it several times before noticing it was there. I photographed it as well, again no reaction from the spider. I have never seen anything like them, I worried they were poisonous. So glad they're not, especially since I found more than one!

  135. Last night I saw this weird looking bright red long legged spider in a finished basement right smack in the middle of the carpeted room and appx 3 feet from the bottom of my bed. I would have never known it was there had I not gotten up to take a sleeping aide b/c it was 3:30 in the morning. I grabbed a wedge shaped shoe and kept looking for something bigger due to the spider's size. I had to wonder if it had come out of a box I had picked up at Home Depot-and now I learn they live here in Michigan! I think it came in for the bugs that look like bark or large brown crickets from the 2 pine trees near my basement windows only a couple times per year. I am glad to learn that the centipedes eat these long red legged spiders-I haven't killed one centipede since the biologist told me that they are harmless and are like basement dusters keeping it free from everything that runs around there especially at night. I usually do not put on a light at night to walk to the bathroom and I could have walked right on that creepy spider barefooted-yikes! I am still creeped out. Maybe vacuuming right before bed may keep them from roaming at large-glad I an moving soon:))`

  140. Reading all these comments seems like these spiders mainly stay in the state of MI so I'm wondering how the hell I found a huge one over here. I live in Denver, Colorado right before the border to Englewood. I went to go grab yogurt from the kitchen and almost stepped on one right in front of the fridge. Only reason I even noticed it was because at first glance with the stove's overhead light on and nothing else, it looked like a huge pincher bug, and I wish it had been. It scared the shit outta me and I got my husbands 13year old litttle sister to help me catch it in a jar. It was moving very slowly as if it's abdomen were too heavy too let it move fast but freaked out a tad when I caught it. Wasn't very aggressive but it is about an inch long including legs, its abdomen is slightly bigger than the rest of its body, definitely has some nasty looking fangs and it keeps opening it's "mouth" like it's ready to eat. There's also a 3year old boy here and I guess a couple different nights now he's woken up extremely itchy but didn't seem to be in pain. His parents thought it was some kind of allergic reaction, could it possibly have been this spider and maybe he just didn't feel the bite due to him being asleep...? Our house has only one level unless you include the attic which I don't. Right behind our house is a creek that runs pretty far so theres a lot of different bugs around due to all the running water. How can you tell if this specific spider is male or female.? I really need to know if there's a possibility they're nesting somewhere because I'm pregnant and I can't stand spiders. I don't want these around, harmless or not, when my baby comes.

    1. The reasons most of these comments are in Michigan is because this is Michigan Spiders. So when people do searches on Spiders in Michigan, they find this site. But the Woodlouse Hunter, to my knowledge is pretty much everywhere.

      They are dangerous really, other than a likely painful bite. I doubt that is why he was waking up itchy. Spiders usually wont sneak out and bite someone in the bed more than once. They dont follow certain paths and cross the same area over and over. Its possible to have a spider climb onto the bed and if you roll over on it they may bite for that. But to have it happen multiple nights is not likely. Pay attention to where he is itchy. A more common culprit that most people do not realize is making a strong comeback now, is Bed Bugs. If he has little bumps and sores in the area he is itchy, search for Bed Bugs in every crease and groove in the bed frame and mattress. Other than it is more likely it is some reaction as far as I know.

  141. I seen this thing at my office today by the copier! I work in Mt. Clemens, MI. It was....meaty. The spiders I am familiar with have oblong shapes and the body is relatively slender with graceful looking legs. This one most certainly did NOT resemble that. It's butt was flesh colored (think zombie) with no design on it, and matte. Its head was blood red, large and shiny, and its legs were red-orange, and rather thick. It it moved slowly and was not avoiding me in the least. So I avoided it, instead. Yeesh! For what it's worth, it rained last night. Don't know if the moisture made him want to pay us a visit in our large, one story office, but there he was, in all his glory.

  142. I live in Utah and my room is littered with these nasty bugs. When I first saw one I trapped it in a jar, and I've been putting all the ones I've caught in it ever since. I caught one BIG woodlouse and let me tell you.. It has killed everything I dropped in the jar. About 20 minutes ago, I came into my room and found one of my underwears on the floor. (It fell out of my laundry that I had just finished doing), not thinking about it, I used one of my feet to pick up my underwear and felt a nasty pinch. I look down and see one of these demons running off before I caught it and dropped it into the jar. It lived for about 5 minutes before the other woodlouse I caught killed it and ate it.

    Needless to say, I want them GONE. I'm so angry. They're so disgusting and nasty!

  145. I saw these in my home in Shelby twp- at least during 2 winters. I don't have carpet so when I saw them run across my floor I smashed them. Collected them in a Baggie to show my landlord. He laughed at me- o live on a lake so bugs etc are probably common. These things gave me the herbee geebies! I probably saw and killed about 8. Haven't seen them the last 2 years and this is the first time I've found out what they really were. So thanks!

  147. One just dropped on my desk at work. It then proceeded to creep around while I looked for a way to get rid of it, before falling to the floor and crawling under my desk. I just spent 20 minutes looking for it...I found it and flushed it. Normally I hate killing spiders, they do important work, but this one was too much. It had to go! Lansing, MI

  148. My daughter had one land on her hand. She grabbed it and tossed on floor before she realized what it was. Very happy she did not get bitten. We are in Mississauga Canada
