    Default Cacata

    I was wondering if there are other places that has a cacata plague.
    We killed four now in two days. Bath-room, sitting-room and now two in the garden ( the schnautzer got it).

    It a tarantulas harmless if they bite you it's like bee sting ,you probably have nest underground house....worry about centipede Getting you it hurts *, kill a dog fast if no treatment. Don't stomp a centepid either you will regret it for week! They have point on each end which will probably get you!

    Not sure if there is a lot of rain where you are but all the water could be a reason. They may be looking for a dry place to hang out.

    I'm in the catch-and-release camp where possible.

    I've seen 3 dead ones in the areas around here lately. Been a while since an encounter with a live one though!

    Not trying to revive an old thread, but some reading from the past on the subject:

    If we were talking fish, I would be so on board with catch&release. Spiders? Not so much.

    Haven't seen a really big one in over a year. A while back caught and released a juvenile. I catch around the house/yard and release far away so they really have to be determined to come back.

    I do check under the covers before I slide into bed though. I don't mind the anoles and geckos running around the house, just wish they could be motivated to crap in one central location. Did see a humongous roach trying to carry off the coffee pot the other day...
