We found a pretty good size tarantula on our screen window in the spare bedroom. I killed it with spray. It was a little sad. A tarantula is at the border between "bug" and "animal". I used about half the can of insecticide. It was actually a pretty good size tarantula. It was about the size of my palm...maybe 4-5 inches across. Way too big to step on anyway.
What I am wondering is if spiders are as strong as ants. The ants down here are crazy. If there were enough of them they would move our house. I always see these tiny little jungle ants carrying huge leaves. If the tarantula was proportionally strong, he could re-arrange our furniture for us. Too bad he is dead.
