    So, I come home to some little SOB black widow making a web on my chair, stretching to my amp...

    I see the little bastard, and proceed to bitch-slap him with my size 11 Vans...

    Last I see of him, he is dangling on a cord (which i abrubtly struck)

    I find no corpse... Nothing on my shoe... but I know I atleast hit him... I think he fell between my speaker and the grille of the amp.

    But anyways...

    My room was built out of the 3rd car port in the Garage (Took the wall of the garage that shares a wall with the living room, made on a office, and a bed room) We did this atleast 4 years ago, and I have not had any pest problems.

    My last smoke detector was possessed by Satan, always going off... with no battery... so we banished it to the garbage...

    I think bogies may be entering through the now-empty space where the smoke detector was...

    Or, some little slut spider got jiggy in my amp, and now... They live there.

  2. just crank your amp to the max and play some really loud low C notes. If there are spiders in there that should be enough to make them blow apart, or atleast be very very shaken up.

    Just stick your hand back in there and kind of wave it around.

  7. I got bit by a brown recluse about 15 years ago. It wasn't cool. I still have a scar on my leg.
  8. Allow the spiders to multiply, then join one of them there newfangled shock metal bands and release a sea of spiders at every show!

    Peavey amps have Black Widows. Maybe your amp is having an identity crisis :meh:

    When I was about 11, I found a black widow on a motorcycle trailer in my back yard. I caught it and put it in an empty jar and went door-to-door around the community trying to sell it. I made $10 off of a nature freak who wanted to set it free.

    my father told me he found a black widdow under a sink a few months ago. i was like "eeeekkkkkk." he told me he found a bunch of them when he moved out of the house i gew up in. :eek:
  15. Black Widows aren't naturally agressive spiders. They'll bite you if you piss em off, but that's about it. Even then, they have antidotes, and it'll sting like hell and swell up, but that's it. Just ring a specialist bug killing guy.

    I'm weird, how come I don't get money? *searches for some spiders to sell*

    oh, and try a bug bomb. It's been said before, but they work.
  19. THAT is possibly the greatest question of all time!! How many people have asked that very question, and not received a good response?! We should try and find an acceptable answer for this man!!

    Rock on
