Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

My rule is if it's in the house, it's a goner, but if it's outside, it's given a reprieve.

However, stinkbugs die anywhere.

It's interesting how the quote gets changed. It's interesting that "Wherever you sit as you read these lines, a spider is probably no more than a few yards away." becomes "You're never more than 3 feet from a spider." There's a difference between "probably" and "never" and "3 feet and a "few yards".

Chris, I hate you right now.

I havent seen many spiders, except the ones in the bush right next to the car. But none in the house, etc. We did have a swarm of ants though. That was unfun.

Good site. I was surprised and delighted by this actual fun fact: Some house spider species have been living indoors at least since the days of the Roman Empire, and are seldom to be found outside, even in their native countries.

You're on the coast of So Cal now, baby! I was told (don't know if this is true), that an ant attack at my place in Encinitas a few years ago is part of the same super colony that stretches from TJ to Oxnard.
