Today in my storage area I saw a rather large spider that kind of looked like this:

except it's legs looked a little hairier and I don't remember that white mark on it's back. As I leaned in to see it closer, it just kind of stood it's ground and raised it's pinchers up.
I thought, "Oh no, you didn't" and turned to grab the broom. However he escaped behind some boxes of Curtis Marvel mags and endless invoices earmarked for my accountant this spring.
It got me thinking: What is the safest way to eliminate spiders and bugs from a storage area without harming your comics?

Don't let these guys jerk you around. To change your custom title, go to My Stuff, then go to Preferences. You can change your custom title there.

In doing some research... I think it looks to have been a Wolf Spider.
That might explain some of the dead crickets I occasionally find in the unit. That spider thinks I'm invading his personal space.

Probably a wolf spider. Sounds too large to be a brown recluse - which has a nasty poisonous bite.

Most pest control places will simply set out sticky traps. That would be my suggestion.

And yes...a floor vac is also a stellar plan.

Good luck. I can't stand spiders.

As long as it didn't look like this. If it was more like this, watch any exposed skin.

I think that life's too short for this. I want back my ignorance and bliss. I think I've had enough of this. Blow me... one last kiss.

You can tell the truth or you can lie. You can say I left you or I died. Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest and could spend years lookin' for the light. Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I. Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home. Well, you can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth. You can say for sure I'm gone.
