Spiders! You can’t kill spiders. Anything that would kill a spider will kill you. I’ve paid an exterminator for ten years now to kill spiders… he keeps killing the same d… spiders over and over again and charging me full bore). Cats think they’re hot stuff with their measley nine lives… spiders have hundreds.
We tried bringing in midget salamanders to eat the spiders, but they got out of hand and we had to bring in dung beetles to eat the salamanders; then Giant African Tree Frogs to eat the Dung Beetles. And now we can’t find anything that will eat Tree Frogs (poison skins, you know)… so now we’re up to our butts in tree frogs, and have more spiders than ever.
The only solution? Name them all, and do the best you can to teach them to stay off the furniture.
