Lions and SPIDERS and bears oh my!!
I think most that know my know that I'm not tremendously friendly with spiders. Mostly a live and let live relationship.
This was until they took up residence in my pantry in the kitchen. I don't have any idea what kind the are. Their front (head) is rather small and dark and their rear ends are, in comparison, huge and white. Possibly pregnant? It has reached the point that our food stays all over the bar and kitchen counters because I hate to open the pantry door and run into those darn spider webs.
I guess I'm a baby about them, but they really give me the willies! I hate running my hand in there and having it go through all those webs. I shudder just thinking about it!
We are up to our noses in moths in the bird food, if anyone has any suggestions about dealing with that. I have just assumed that one follows the others. What really got to me was when my nephew got a bite on the leg by a brown recluse spider a few weeks ago so now I'm really a Chicken Little.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Obviously we're going to have to clean out the entire pantry (not huge, thank goodness) and either clean thouroughly what comes out or discard. I have wondered if putting some of the plastic coated wiring shelves in there instead of the solid wood ones would do anything besides look better.
Please help me! I'm an old lady (compared to you guys!) and don't want to have a heart attack when I open my pantry!!
