Well, so much for H. maculata having a problem with massive doses of insecticide - I found the escapee this morning, almost two weeks after escape - dead on the living room carpet from blunt force cat induced trama. One leg was ripped off and laying about 6 feet from the body, but neither cat appears to have tried to eat it which is wierd when you consider they wolf down any crickets they catch. So, now Ken can rest easy, the "dangerous man-killing monster spider" has been found and the threat neutralized. Poor thing looked so sad.
