Yeah about that, I'd say. Actually not the biggest I've found so far, but it's above average.

It's interesting as it actually looks black from the naked eye.

What freaks me out is the multiple eyes. Maybe it gives it wide-angle viewing since it can't swivel its head.

Probably would have done more good than harm. It would only be eating other insects, which I am assuming you are trying to get rid of.

Haha yeah it's weird to see all those eyes lol. Funny thing is, I'm not really so much scared of spiders, but it's spider webs I have a phobia of, weirdly enough. THIS, was quite terrifying to go in lol. Very long pole, slowly work my way in.

Though it's all mental fear. Don't think we have any actual harmful spiders around here.

I also never see any bugs upstairs. Maybe my cat eats them.

the really hairy ones move very fast so it's hard to squash them.

Here's a good little beast

I get some centipedes too. Those always surprise me, because they're so quick. I can be doing something ans ZOOM just see it run across the room in like 3 seconds. It would actually be interesting to see a slow motion video of one.
