Don't Housesit for Me! Burns House Down

Recommended Posts

Another guy this year burns a house down trying to use a blowtorch to eradicate some spiders!   Apparently they were Black Widow but.....

To make things worse it wasn't even his house....he was house sitting for his parents!

But he did get rid of the spiders. And the roaches. And the bed bugs, fleas and ants and misquotes and the owners and flies and..........

Yep, a Blowtorch really? We all knew better than that, we used a can of hairspray and a butane lighter for widow spiders. Blowtorches are for scorpions in the garage.

Most common house spiders are harmless unless provoked by accidentally stepping on them while sleeping or brushing up against them. They're also useful in that they can get rid of the other unwanted pests which may cause physical harm and skin infections from their bites.  The OP's post is funny nonetheless!

Edited: One of the best ways to get rid of spiders is to vacuum them up. Works every time. :)

Last November our apartment building wing had a major fire.  We had been having an ant problem.  After the fire, no ants until just recently we are seeing a few.   But still, I'd rather take the ants than a fire!

To get rid of spiders you let a flock of hungry birds into the house .. you all know the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly :rolleyes:

Ha, The spiders in the closet where you keep the vacuum cleaner- guess where they came from? Don't try that one with wasps. When you shut off the cleaner they come back out, rather ticked off too.- Source; voice of experience

Hey I knew such a lady! She swallowed a fly. I don't know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she'll die.

and then I think she also swallowed a spider, It riggled and giggled and tickled inside her.

Think she swallowed the spider to catch the fly inside her. I don't know why she swallowed the fly. Perhaps she'll die.
