I had one crawling on my wall, this morning, @ 3 a.m.
I was so freaked out, I captured it in a glass (put the glass over it, covered the glass with a lid) and went to my back porch and released it.
I do not like any bug in my house, 'friendly' or no.
I found a site: What's That Bug: Spiders
by typing in 'white spiders'. They say that the cream house spiders
do bite, not deadly, but painfull and taking a long time to heal.
here's another site, with pics of one:
I am SO glad I let that creepy thing outside, and hopefully she/he won't come back...if I see one again, I may be forced to kill it.
I hope she/he stays outside. more bugs out there, anyhow, right?
well now we know what they're officially called, though I haven't yet found the scientific name. at any rate: though not deadly: they DO bite, and it IS painful, and can take a long time to heal...
spiders are not my friends...RAID and OFF are my friends.
