This does qualify for breaking news, even if the breaking part is mostly you East Coasters breaking down your front doors rushing to leave.


Glad to hear they can’t bite!

I’ve seen these, or similar, spiders way up on the windows of high rise buildings in Chicago.

Drives cats crazy.

Love it. Can't wait to lose my dog to communal, palm sized nightmares.

I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

A flamethrower or shotgun would probably be more effective, and less likely to drop spent rounds on random nearby places if fired at falling spiders.

Flamethrower would be bad idea, singing the neighbors dog will not get you an apple pie.

All jokes aside shooting a spider with any firearm isn’t a great idea

Guns don't work on spiders. I had a roommate try it on a wolf spider. He failed miserably while I just went and got a tupperware container and swished the little guy inside to dump outside.

Did we skip the murder hornets? I feel like we skipped the murder hornets and moved towards flying spiders.

I saw this yesterday as well. Another good reason to live in the northern part of the country. [whispering like Biden] Don't tell anyone though, let's keep it our little secret. ;)

I had at least 20-30 of these in my yard last fall. Huge webs, but fortunately they like to spin them 10+ feet off the ground.
