If these tarantulas in Cobb get out could they spread all over the ATL?

I'm not against them per se as they are all God's creature but I would rather not have another species introduced here.

I hate spiders but tarantulas are pretty peaceful for the most part. You have to do a lot to make them bite you.

Some people have them as pets. My young daughter has held one on a couple of different occasions.

I love bugs and I love these threads that pop-up every now and then about adorable bugs.....a nice break from the boredom of usual arguments about which part of town is better, city vs. city fights etc.

I'm wondering if we should go ahead and check for them now, CMMom.
