I seriously think giving this thing access to a meal is a mistake.
Sounds like one of the worst euphemisms I've ever heard.Things I never thought I'd say: "I need to feed the drain spider."
Or warm up some raw chicken or something and leave it in the bathtub.
Lol, obviously you've never been fishing. Try and catch a bass during the rain at night. 4 hour struggle on that one.Yeah that's it ...maybe some mayo or mustard would increase the appeal even more? Do you think wraps would be too much?
Warmed up chicken? Really, that's a t attractant? Should I be heating my crickets prior to feeding??:? Sorry, I can't help but to chuckle at that, don't be mad at me....might be great for stray cats though
Seriously, if you ever seen them eat, they will grab any food offered and be back in the hole almost before you could react....and to react you'd need to literally sit in position for as long as it takes, which could be a really, really long time. Miss a couple times, now you have a fat t sealing its self in for a month or three while it molts...bad quickly goes to worse.
The hungrier it gets, the further it will venture from its new home and the more time it will spend away from the drain...mine roams a lot when hungry....it gets plump and I see feet if I'm lucky.
Fishing? What's that? You mean following around that odd band "phish"?Lol, obviously you've never been fishing. Try and catch a bass during the rain at night. 4 hour struggle on that one.
Problem is the local lake is swamped with weed shoots and broken logs. You hook a lot weirder things than the fish when you're trying to catch something, lol. Too bad this wasn't an OBT. He'd have no problem getting it out, those things love biting. I don't doubt it'd have its fangs stuck.Fishing? What's that? You mean following around that odd band "phish"?
Yeah, caught bass in thunderstorms just yesterday evening...ya just gotta change up your approach....deeper fish are less effected, even if its only a few feet.
This is a shot in the dark.... but why not call a plumber? They might have better ideas, hell, they might even be able to reverse the water flow and jet the spider out.She. I'm a she
I have actually tried the worms method. Spider wasn't interested.
I tried trickling some water in there, slowly. Spider didn't care.
He's been in there for about a month already. I asked here because I was out of ideas.
The bathroom is on the second level of the house, which is a rental. I can't just tear it apart to get a wayward spider free, and we actually need to be able to use that bathroom now.
Actually there is no "trap" on a bathtub the overflow serves this purpose. you would have to tear into the ceiling/floor to expose it. Possibly driving the T further down into the drain which connects to other drain/vents throughout the houses plumbing.The solution is very simple. Go into your basement, or other access to the drain below the tub. Remove the fittings below the trap. You will now have a open end on both sides. So the tarantula will have only two options, run out into the tub, or out the bottom of the trap. Have someone at the bottom of the trap, and someone at the tub, decide which way to force him, and be ready.
Bath tub drains do not have "P traps" see diagram aboveHe escaped, and has apparently been living in the bathtub drain in our rarely used spare bathroom for some time.
I've removed the drain stopper, but he's too quick for me to catch when he's mocking me by hanging half out of the drain.
Any suggestions on how to catch him?
