everywhere bloody things
No ****... and i thought it was just me....
Funnily enough this has been mentioned on UKMKIVS too. General consensus seems to be not to worry because all the enormous spiders will eat the daddy long legs
I hope they do,they are getting to be a pain.
They only live a day anyway!! What a pointless creature!! lol
lets just hope we dont see any of them, otherwise i'll really **** maself
You can always hear them just when you have got into bed too!
And who the hell thought of the name 'Daddy Long Legs'?? It sounds about as scientific as piece of toast.
I havent seen any
WTF!!! you aren't blind are you?
or do you live in Milton Keynes
I swear to god this is the 1st Ive heard of this
there everywhere in leeds too. Windows are covered in the damn things.
I've not seen any either...
Everywhere down here too, went on a mental killing spree the other night ha ha
None in Cheshire?!
They are so cute...
Quite a few here to ..dont put me up nor down brought up in the country with all the sheep
I was attempting to teach my daughter about the circle of life.... caught one and threw it in a Spiders web. Bloody (huge) spider, shot across the web as it was attempting to break free....... then, as if by magic it got away buy with 1 leg less (daddy long one lesslegs) - spider started to wrap the leg and i could see the "Mmmmm lunch" in his actions, then realised.... spider fooked off back into hiding.. Ahhhh - bless...
Got a crack from daughter for beng cruel...
My store manager thought it'd be funny to catch the buggers in a plastic bag cos it was dead and there was plenty hovering about around our lights. We ended up catching around 40 of the buggers and there was a few more left!
Damn man tell me about it, I've killed two in the past 2 days, and it's just silly in my uni bathrooms, it's as if they've got an orgy going on in there.
P.S. Did you know dady long have the deadliest poison known to man.
Yea but they cant bite us or somethin
i've got hundreds sitting in my uncut lawn. May have to get the strimmer out this weekend and give them hell, Doom style.
daddy long legs are cool !
except when I'm playing doom3 at night in pitch black and all they want to do is head butt the monitor !
Worse than daddy long legs are spider, when I go out for a fag I always end up in a spiders web, I mean, is the spider trying to catch me or what ?
I feel spiders are pretty calm compared to daddy long legs, who'll just float around bouncing into ramdom S*ite, plus spiders can't fly which is more than enough to satisfy me
hate them things ****** **** loads around at the moment. there is **** loads of spiders around as well!
saw loads driving thru Brackley on Monday, lol... glad they're everywhere else, thought it was me
I know a few people like that.........
3 days they live apparantly-there was an article in paper today!
I know thats true, but how come you dont hear of anyone dying by daddy-longlegs?
Ok I know they cant inject it, but say (long shot but possible), one decides that you are a good place to spread its legs, so to speak, and you get so infuriated with it that you squash it. Problem is its on a fresh open cut.... Do you die????
Anyway, I havent had many at home, but half a mile down the road at work, they are everywhere, usually around the door handles!!!!
Wow there getting quite advanced the ones down here can only managed to fly into lightbulbs
Had to read it twice but then ROFL very good
See here for more about them:
Note the bit about the venom....
I've been swatting a few this week as well
Thats some myth
you made me choke on my pizza
ha ha ha sorry dude
They got venom. I thought he was in Spiderman 3!
What's wrong with Milton Keynes dude??????
"A daddy-longlegs cannot bite and it is a myth that they have dangerous venom"
That answers my question then! :icon_thumright:
