Found this guy under a couch. Looks like he been a goner for a while. Trying to figure out what kind he is. Wife thinks maybe a Wolf Spider. I don't know. Anybody? Scott?

Also, that pile of dust in the upper right is actually Dermestid Beetle poop (carpet beetles) very common household residents that are like microscopic insect buzzards. They feed on any dead matter they find including wool, leather, etc. Often "Moth Damage" is really the work of these guys.

My nephew had a pet tarantula that he thought had died. Turned out it had just shed its skin and escaped. They found this out when they discovered it living under their freezer (months later)...it was eating cat food to survive. Lol

Moral of the story...you may have giant spiders living in your house and not know it.

Great. Comforting thought. And it's a Wolf Spider. As I understand it, that's a nasty bite...

Spiders of most species can survive very long periods in between meals, they don't eat cat food (not unless the cat has been eating live mice anyway). So your lost tarantula was likely just fasting smile

Lol...I wonder if it ventured beyond the freezer area? Like into the bedrooms? Under pillows?

These are the things that I ponder at night...
